3DNew Original Ship For The Cover Of My 4th Book

SeanPSeanP204 Posts: 253Member
I am almost finished writing my fourth book and I've also been working on the main character's new spaceship for the cover. I have the shape all hammered out so now I can start adding all the small detail, weapons, engines, landing gear ...etc.

    Plenty of room for engines back there. The design definitely looks promising.

    Probably just temporary, but I do like the Color 😁

    LOL! Yes, the color is temporary. I model in a light green and then when the shape is done I change the color to purple.

    Thanks Brandenberg! I have three types of engines to fit in back there so I need a lot of room. Jet engines for when it is in atmosphere, rocket thrusters / sub-light engines and then the FTL field emitters. Plus I will be putting in a bunch of greebles.

    Blocked in the intakes for the in atmosphere jet engines today. Modeled them after the intakes on my favorite fighter the F-14 Tomcat.

    This is looking really nice so far.

    I don't know why but with those intakes, it screaming to me that the main hull and possibly wings need to be stetched out a little. A bit like the Concord.

    Great shot from the front.

    A little more progress on the new ship. Still lots of detail to add and I need to decide on a color scheme. This is a private space ship, not a military ship, so I think I want to give it some color instead of military gray. To save myself some time I fit the sub-light thrusters from the battle carrier in the back. I'll make some changes to make them unique to this ship in a bit. Still need to ad the thrust cones for the jet engines and the FTL drive assembly - which I'm still brainstorming on. Anyone have suggestions on the color scheme?

    Red, black and silver. Heavy on the red with black and silver used more for stripes and accents. Or maybe a two tone, with red on top and silver on bottom and black stripes and accents. (just a few thoughts)

    Looking Good. Loving the details I the back.

    As for a colour scheme, white is the traditional colour for a civilian craft.
    Now if you going to have it as a civilian company craft, you can go nuts.
    Look at how airlines do their paint scheme for inspiration.

    Kaden's Warp Fighter looked delicious in orange and gray. Why not give that a shot? :)

    Or maybe some truly Fossian stuff with bright primary colors, and checkered patterns (think Homeworld).
    Comco: i entered it manually in the back end

    Thanks you guys!

    All of you have great color scheme suggestions.
    I'll have to see what I can come up with.
    Try a few of them.

    I think you should make it look good and used - like the Star Wars stuff. Unless your book is about a brand new ship. :)
