Here is a mundane question: what applications are you all using to create these starships in?
Mundane answer: yes. Name any program, and I'll bet someone around here uses it. I can't speak for Forbin, but personally I use GIMP and Inkscape (both free) for 2D work.

I really am liking a lot of this art here!

Good ol' mundane CorelDRAW X5.
Well, you guys all do great work. Now excuse my ignorance, as I don't work around photo editing or anything like that, but do you two (and anyone else who wants to share) "draw" those ships from scratch or do you use templates?

The reason I am asking is if there are templates involved, I would like to know so that maybe I can start learning on my own and create some ships myself. I would probably want to start out with 2-d, first, I imagine. So if you have any tips, I would be interested in your expertise, that is if you care to share it. If not, totally fine.
Personally, I draw everything from scratch. I do sometimes have reference pictures that I draw over or refer to, but the final product is all-new. Once I've done that, I may use my new file as a template of sorts for derivative works (see my Galileo thread for an example), but that template was still my own work.
