It's a long time since I last posted, I hope you like this design, inspired by old comics called Starblazer (not the cartoon)

Starhawk originated in The Crunch comic published by Scotland’s D.C. Thompson in the city of Dundee before transferring to another comic title better to known to my generation as Hotspur, and later appeared in Starblazer, Victor, Spike and (as ‘Young Starhawk’) Buddy, as well as three Hotspur annuals.
Heroes:
Sol Rynn, alias Starhawk, was a roving lawman who brought justice to the scattered worlds of the slowly disintegrating Terran Empire in the 26th century AD, along with his trusty robot sidekick, Droid. They rode in a ship called the Space Rider ^ and answered SOS calls sent out using special SOS cards of Rynn’s own design, how those cards get around I don’t know if it was ever explained.

also featured are some fighter designs I have called *W.A.S.P. Fighter and Dundee Battle Ships

*World Alliance Star Patrol. Fighter?

*Western Alliance Star Patrol. Fighter?

*Wide Area Strategic Protector. Fighter?

    Really nice work. I've never heard of this series, so I can't comment on accuracy, but those are some attractive looking and well modeled ships. Also, I really like the environment for that final render, that's really cool.

    thanks, Chris, Starblazers was only sold in the UK and Ireland I think but had some great SciFi cover art. the environment was created by GrahamTG, who shares a lot of his scene art.

    Yeah, unfortunately, we don't get a lot of UK comics over here. Judge Dredd is one of the very few that gets imported.

    There are many great characters in UK comics and from France/Belgium, loved reading them growing up in Ireland.
    we don't have any comic industry at all, if so so small I completely missed it.
    though Irish characters have made their way into UK comics like Sláine, an Irish hero created by Pat Mills, first appeared in 1983 in 2000AD which was epic

    more views of the SpaceRider (not the most inspiring name for a ship, but inspired by the Millennium Falcon)
