Magnificent design work. But then, it always is. I've seen your work before but never been fast enough to grab an image off of the image of the day to find out who you were. Inspiring.

I have to say I loved your space ship designs. Do you use photoshop or something else? I really want to learn how to draw and design space ships myself.

Thanks for the comment. No, I don't use Photoshop - I use Copic markers and Pilot pens on plain ol' photocopy paper, scan it into the computer and clean it up a little with a photo editing program (any half decent Photoshop clone program can do it - even the simple free ones). That's it. I guess you could use Painter or Photoshop to do the whole thing, but I like the feeling of drawing on paper - I'm old school, I guess. The important thing is to get the perspective right, go for a distinctive (but not weird) overall hull shape and then detail just enough to make it interesting. Having a back story also helps. Like everything it just takes practice. Good luck it.

Hello. I like your creative art and your work and I would like to throw you a proposition. I am in the process of creating a business that takes creative, innovative, and inspiring ideas for mostly new types of military vehicles, weapons systems and combat systems and then pitches them to well known companies like Honeywell, Bell, Lockheed Martin, Northrop and Grumman for “possible” consideration and creation. All my company does is design, we leave it to the well expericend Tec’s and engineers of witch-ever company wants to buy into our ideas to make our innovation an actual, economical, efficient, reality.

However, as I said before I’m just starting my business profile and just getting on my feet. This means funds are limited. I don’t have the funds to pay an artist an hour at a time for work or out-right. The way we would work together with your skills is as follows, I would give you an idea I have in mind, we would talk it over through e-mail, what it’s for, how it works, and so on. Then you would design it in the same mock-up style you have done here on DevineArt.com. That design is what would be pitched to the company. If the they like what they see, you get your fair share of the profit and royalities. But… if they don’t like what they see and don’t choose to buy, then their is no payout. Witch means no money for either of us.

This may sound foolish, like you would be working for free for something that may never get looked at, but this is not true. Look at this way. You as an artist already have created and posted numerous creative photos and ideas on DeviveArt.com. You’ve done this for free. So why not do something and take part in something with the possibility of getting a payout of tens-of -thousands of dollars (if not more). Why not design something that can actually be used??? If you have an interest and you wish to take part, I can be contacted at arizonaboley@yahoo.com. I assure you this is not a scam, we can talk more through e-mail is you respond. Thank for your time.
