unfortunatly, I don't know any good site either that has tuts on them. I have been working in Illustrator for a long time know. Book wise you could try the visual quickstart guide to Illustrator.

I've got to get a copy of that! I do everything by hand, or in photoshop.

Want to trade some artwork? I'd like a shot of me with the ISS Tiberius in the background and one of your swords. Mybe we could work on something together. I've got a script I've been working on for almost four years. How would you like to work on a comic together?

Well here is the first shot of my next Imperial Starship the I.S.S. Icarus.

She is a destroyer size starship. I have posted a size chart with my other ships to show her size.

I am currently a little bussy with other art requests, but I would be

interested in an art swap in the future. :)

I like the fact that the saucer is larger than in earlier destroyers.

I noticed what looks to be two small fighters attached to the ventral side of the Reliant (next to the nacelles); three small fighters attached to the ventral side of the Ares (in front of the main deflector); and one attached to the ventral side of the Titan (also in front of the main deflector). What are these? Are they fighters?

Yes they are fighters. I decided to play around with the captain's Skiff/Yatch idea.

So instead of a Skiff/Yatch I made attack skiffs and warp fighters for my starfleet.

They work as extra support craft while in the fleet, of extra power for their

baseship while in battle. That way the imperial starfleet has a little more fire power while taking on rebels.

Here is a Icarus WIP shot of the bottom of the hull. I am about 50% done with this view, but I figured I would post my progress.

Thanks, it has taken me awhile to get to this point. A lot of trial and error, trying

out different techniques.

Well here are the finished Top and Bottom views of the I.S.S.Icarus.

I have also incuded the Ships logo as well as crew uniform patch.

The patch goes on the left shoulder of the uniform (if it has sleves). :devil:

Enjoy. I am not sure I will be working on her that much next week since

I will be on vacation. I will try and update before I leave.

Nice design! Are those two fighters on each side of the nacelle? Those are different designs as compared to the other fighters. or are these more like BSG Raptors?

Nope, no fighters on this ship just a couple of shuttles. Those are the upper torpedo

launcher housings. Take alook at the I.S.S. Titan for an example of what I mean.

Here is a quick addition to my sharships. This is

the latest schematics for the U.S.S. Titan that I have been working with Marcho over at Pocket Books. I will post a bigger version when the book is published.

You will notice that the captain's skiff is now there, and we changed the nacells a little to add

a little more detail to them. You will see this in the final 3D version. Also I fixed the missing lifepods in the aft view.

Enjoy. :cylonweapons:

Okay, I have been working on the Male Duty Uniforms for my Dark Mirror Universe. I need a little help deciding which way to go, so I am posting

my three ideas that I have so far. Let me know which way I should go.

Also I decided to go towards the Wrath of Khan style phasers for this universe.

Here are the choices for uniforms so far. Note these a re the command uniforms. I will make the crew uniforms similar but without the sash.

P.S. I needed time of on the Icarus. I will work more on here next week.
