Derelict ship
It would be cool with varios derelict ships floating around in space, to add clues or more mystery. This one is sort of spongy and pretty big. maybe an exploration vessel.
There could also be a 'Bermuda triangle' with lots of stuff floating around.
...and a forgotten Dreadnaught fleet as in the SW Thrawn comics.

Taalo asteroid ship (50% scale)
Taalo astroid ship I'm going to use as a story/intro component. (Gotta add some hues on it, too mono grey)

Wow, a deluge of awesomeness! Grin
That size comparison thing was really cool.
Arne, fantastic work on the mycon and taalo. That's the first drawing i've ever seen done of a taalo ship.

And i'm sure that if you really wanted to make it into a game, there'd be plenty of crack programmers with no graphical skill at all that would want to team up with you. Tongue

Could you do the Precursor ship? That would be awsome considering the way you do art.......

Here's the Taalo. For my story I was thinking they could appear in normal space with their giant asteroid ship hail the captain, but without saying anything...

Then the camera zooms out and reveals...

...who apologizes for his little friend not being very talkative. I flipped the eyes upside down and made a mouth-like line to make it look more friendly.

Maybe there's some sort of emergency in another part of the universe where they bring the captain and some allies, or the original SC2 map just expands, revealing new systems.

edit: I'll be getting to the precursor ships sooner or later...

Supox battle platform WIP - I drew in some turrets here, but they'll be separate later.

Arnie... Wow, just... Wow

I love the Brown ur-quan!
just...


Wow

Edit:
I like the mouth line, sort of...
First off, I like how it makes the ur-quan look happy, but I don't think it should be an actual mouth line... perhaps just one of the many lines that cover the body of the creature and it simply appears like a mouth line... it does make it look almost friendly. The little um... squiggilie thinggys on the lower part of its head, I always though was its mouth. Anyway, any chance we may be able to see the rest of the urquan's body? have it wraped around something or clinging to some sort of insturment pannel?

Anyway, Excelent work. Truly, I am envious of your tallent

I really like the brown ur-quan too. However, all of those ships look the same, or at least share a lot of design features -- many many more than in the game.

I love the supox platform!
I think it could use some red or purple for contrast, but it looks awsome.

Kaaht> Yeah the Ur-Quan mouth line is just a decor line, and not a mouth. I could make that clearer by adding other similar lines to the head, but it might make it look gritty.

Death> What ships?


One of my own species. Needs some tweaking but the basic stuff is there. Drew in some temporary turrets.

When I first saw that, I thought: "Burvixeese"... Because of the design of their 'caster...

I always thought Taalo were rocklike creatures? As in: probably not being able to move that much?

Yeah, and it can vacuum your floor AND carry your golf clubs.
Just kidding. It looks great.

I thought the Taalo were different from Chenjesu so I tried making them more creature like, but still a bit odd and artificial looking. I wanted to avoid the, 'just a little round rock'-look.
Maybe they have a stiff silicon-based skin and rock like brain / organs? I would assume they have some sort of limbs, since they are 'slow'. I did draw some other more rock-like designs, but they didn't turn out very well. Maybe I'll post later.


I was toying with the thought of adding a Precursor into the story.

There's a system called 'Hell' which is particulary nasty... hence the name. Lots of hostile nebulas with lightning and sensor/radar jamming properties. All the planets have some sort of hellish atmosphere. This is not a system you want to be in.

On planet 5, or V, an alien ship can be found (with a lot of difficulty).

Balls of lighning suspected to be sentient.



Because of the nasty conditions, excavating it will take tons and tons of effort.
Once excavated, it will become clear that the ship is a Precursor scout. Inside are the jockeys fossilized remains:


(Hell V = LV,  so clevar!1)



Scout (the one with lights) and a Precursor reconstruction, although I'm not sure if I should have such a clear pic of them.

Ok. The scout does look magnificent; very precursor-y. Quite similar to the Vindicator in style, too. How about a scale comparison? Wink

The fossilized jockey looks wonderfully moody, too; reminds me a lot of the wrecked spaceship in Alien, and the strange figures sitting in their control chairs. (Giger is amazing!)

I think your vision of the big, hairy (blue!), lumbering Precursors look very nice, and pretty close to how I would have imagined them to look, as well.

Only one thing to say: keep up the good work! Cheesy Always looking forawrd to more artwork to please the eye.

Yeah, Giger did a really good job with the Alien designs. They had some early concepts (before Giger came on the project) and if they had used those... well... the alien looked like a x-mas turkey.
Sometimes one person comes along and changes everything to awesome. Sometimes the opposite. Sad

Pic - Giger inspired pic I did a while ago.
