Dogship by Orpheus7 Dogship by Orpheus7
Two views of a common-ol'-garden-dogship. This was the first ship I drew that turned out okay.

Thanks very much. This was my first drawing - a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ...

Your work is great, you've made so many awesome ships ! Do you have any tips/tutorial on how to start making spaceships like yours for a beginner?

Thanks for the comment. It really is appreciated.

As far as tips go, I would say that doodling and doing thumbnails really help to find interesting shapes. It's also important to try new things and experiment with shapes. Most of my ships are based on basic 3d shapes that are cobbled together. Once the basic shape is there, slap on some engine pods (Star Wars ships are the best examples of these) and then do the details. Details make a big difference and Star Wars and Battlestar ships have some great detailing. Check them out carefully and try copying their detailing initially.
Also, take a look at big machinery (graders, diggers, cranes etc.) to see how they work and how their parts fit together. The main thing is to be patient and keep trying.
Do it for yourself and do it for fun with no grand illusions and you should be churning great stuff out in no time. Good luck. I f you have further questions, feel free to contact me.

How big of a thing am I looking at here? Is cargo it's primary purpose?
Orpheus7 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's not that big, perhaps 150m long (just a guess) with a crew of 5. It is a multi-purpose vessel with a decent cargo capacity - but its primary function wouldn't be that of a freighter.
