Flying Contraptions by shinypants Flying Contraptions by shinypants
hey guys... needed something to draw so i started from a alchemy sketch and then used a ton of reference from one doug chiang piece from his mechanika book. page 112 - 115 if you're curious.

ton of perspective issues... stoopid perspective!

I like this ship its a perfect idea for a fighter. its thin and full of holes thus making it hard to hit and judging by its shape I'd say its incredible agile too. even decently armed. but if and when you hit this thing I bet it will go poof. like tie fighters. still a very good concept.

Agreed, it would be a very fast hit and run type of ship. Hopefully a skilled enough pilot would be able to avoid any major confrontation :D

Very nice design man, love the dirty muddy stile! I usually suck with perspective myself, i don't see that many problems man, check out some Feng Zhu viedos on youtube they helped me a lot!

It has quite some resemblance with the outrigger canoe if I were to be asked. :)

No horrible perspective issues that I can detect.

How long does something like this take you?

how is no one commenting on my crap perspective?!? :D i did try hard to get it looking ok.

um as for time i said in a comment before that it was something like 3-4 hours on a saturday and then 1-2 on sunday. probably pretty slow...

I think it was Nei Ruffino who said something like; 'if no one complains, then it's right'

man that is lookin sooooo cool!

my only suggestion is that the wings should probably be angled down a little more so that the side pods become a little lower as well.

Apart from that it looks amazing!
