Tanker Starship Water Landing by scifieart10000 Tanker Starship Water Landing by scifieart10000
The first star-ship i've drawn in 4 years. It is a medium sized interplanetary liquid gas tanker for delivering fuel or oxygen to colony worlds. it lands in water because its large size would make building a suitably thick tarmac unfeasible,at least on earth, plus it would put less stress on the airframe by distributing the load better.

I have to coin a new word to describe this piece, "McAweswome!" Good work. I just love the design of the ship. You've captured the sense of wear and tear perfectly on the hull. Even the port feels authentic. Again, great work.

Landing in water for support is an interesting idea.

Not as much as your environments! I may be able to design concept machines well, but thats all I can do.

Glad you like them haha. Where did you learn to design the way you do. It's such a unique style that I'd love to be able to accomplish one day!

I attended CCS for car design in 2011, and dropped out, as  I had not yet heard of concept design, but for the most part i'm self taught. That style is mostly the result of being bored and drawing  a lot in HS. I'm hoping to get into some school next year for somthing concept design related.

Have you read any of David Drake's RCN/Daniel Leary series of novels? This would fit right in to that setting...
