In Praise of TOS-TAS Imagery (Ships - Updated 5/5)
 
The TOS-TAS era remains my favorite, for many and detailed reasons that I won't go into here :p So I thought I'd share some of my ship image creations from the last few years. Thanks for viewing!

Why not? I'd love to have this be a discussion as well as a gallery. I bet you have some interesting things to say about it all!

I don't remember seeing "stranded" before. Very funny.

I'd be happy to discuss it... just maybe in a different thread;)

Hi, Rob. Welcome to the BBS.

I've been a fan of your art since Traveller. You even sold me a copy of the MegaTraveller Referee Kit over one of the USENet (or maybe FidoNET, don't remember which) echoes, and threw in an original piece of art, which I'm not sure I've ever thanked you for.

Nice work in both threads! You did artwork for Traveller? Did you do any for FASA? The people style looks similar to some of the stuff from the original Battletech "House" source books.

If I remember right (I've been gaming for over 35 years), I've seen Rob (Caswell) artwork in Traveller, FASA's Star Trek (I think), I believe some of West End's Star Wars, and probably a lot I'm forgetting. And I believe he was one of the founders of www.starshipmodeler.com .
