While I continue to work on learning the basics of shading I've also been watching a lot of Stargate, so I thought I'd try sketching a cartoonized SGC soldier.

The P90 is a tricky and frustrating object for drawing.

Good on you for keeping with all these art challenges. I wish I had kept drawing.

For a drawing class I've been working on attempting more detailed drawings, with things like shading and a bit more to it than just simple lines. This is one of my first go's at it.

Some artwork I did based on the red rocks of southern Utah.

While I was searching through my phone I found this old sketch of a starbase or something. Enjoy!

This looks like it has a story to go with it.

I suspect that as well, but I have no memory of what that story is thanks to how long its been.

I've been mostly absent from social media for a few days, thanks to a short spell of burnout, but today I'm back with a sketch of the F/S-15 from Project Wingman. Though a fictional variant of the vehicle, it is loosely based on the real F-15 STOL/ACTIVE technology demonstrator in use in the 90's.

While I'm struggling to figure out the smoke simulations in blender, here's some touched up versions of the shots I made a couple years ago.

For something a bit higher-quality tonight, a rebel patrol from Star Wars:

Nice!

Any chance you'd take a crack at B-Wings?

Possibly. At first I wasn't even planning to do anything past the Xwing, but then I made the Corvette and I'm already working on an Arquitens and Y wing model.

My latest model in Blender: a simplified, stylized version of the Correllian Corvette from Star Wars

Its too bad the movies have gone down the drain. Otherwise its among my favorite franchises.

CR90s are neat little ships. I wish VSDs would get more love; half-size Star Destroyers with massive missile banks.

How are they not featured in films and tv like all the time??

It's not quite the same, but Victories are a pretty integral part of any fleet in Empire at War. Maybe if the empire had used them more often in the movies they could've won (aside from the plot armor).

@Jmcninja The Imperial military doctrine was always quite silly. They produced 25,000 ISDs in opposition to what? A couple dozen MC-80s?

The idea that they needed so many capital ships to combat an enemy that mostly relied on starfighters is laughable (but makes a great thematic point story-wise).

My latest WIP animation; continuing my current project, in this scene human starfighters launch from a capital ship.

Fighter Launch (WIP Animation) A work in progress short of a fighter launch sequence. Having put it into motion outside of the blender viewport, I can clearly see that there are some timing issues to deal with. Some of the shots... https://youtu.be/-59fOHLGpgQ

Parler #writingcommunity, tell me about how you handle romantic relationships between characters in non-romance fiction.

Do you include them at all? Do you plan relationships or let them happen organically between characters? Would the story progress largely the same if you cut this element out, or does the plot lean on relational elements heavily? Do you do something about this element that sets your work apart from other work in your genre(s)?

Today's daily sketch: an F-11 Tiger from the game War Thunder (which at this point basically looks like real life). I really wish I hadn't missed the SUMMER challenge to get it.
