So people keep commenting about this looking like the yv-666, but I see many more similarities between this and the yv-330. Regardless, it's an excellent design, and looks like it could fit in well with the CEC YV-series ships. Exceptional job!

Thanks for the comment. Glad you like it. I looked at both ships you mentioned and I can see elements of both - although I didn't even know those two ships existed until after I had done the drawing. I guess there are only a limited number of iconic shapes for starships and I happened to stumble upon one of them.

Yes, the thing about the up series though is that to me, they all look like somebody combined the flat-frontedness of a shipping container vessel's command deck with the exterior look of a freight train, and since yours is a cargo ship, I just think you probably had similar, if not the same influences when designing the ship that the to series creators did. Which isn't by any means a bad thing. That's kind of the thing about art. No matter what anybody imagines, we're all human and we all come from the same planet, so we all have the same influences. Which means that no matter what somebody imagines, somebody else, having no contact with the imagined thing or the person who imagined it, can imagine the exact same thing, or something so similar that the two imaginings are nearly indescernable. That's why art exists. To open your mind to the things created by what is essentially something the same as you, only created just a little different, and put through a little different life than you. It shows us what we can create, and let's us be awed by it.

True. I agree that certain influences would be drawn upon as we share similar cultures and are exposed to similar ideas. As you say, transports nowadays are trucks and trains, so it is logical that their "blockiness" would be carried through to transport starships in many cases.

This one really caught my eye while looking for ideas and I've made a scale version of this ship In Space Engineers, it looks very wicked! A wonderful design that went together very well in-game.
Nicely done!

It actually works very well as a bulk cargo ship on our server, I've now punched out several for a mining consortium in-game for use as ore transports. It's a good solid design. :)

Very similar to Star Wars YV-666 ship, but someone mentioned about one of them before ;)
Great job anyway :D

I am not really sure about that - perhaps the blocky front ...

This looks like a good base design for an armed and armored freight/transport ship. Perhaps with a wide hull and cargo ramps...

Hm, I could swear I've seen this somewhere before! Did you perhaps do another rendition of this design?

Nope. I think someone used it as a foundation for a 3d project, but I am sure that there are similar looking ships out there.

Reminds me a bit of the Hound's Tooth from Star Wars. Way better design, though. ;)

Oh this is great!
I see elements of a Consular cruiser and a Gozanti Cruiser, perhaps even the CR series of Corellian design...
This is great work, and I think it could easily be a CR50/CR70 gunship or some sort of republic support vehicle
