I.S.S. Ikran, in our universe after its capture by Starfleet forces, being piloted on its way to an undisclosed research facility.

I assume ISS Ikran has Mirror Universe Romulan Tech on Board?

Re: Art that doesn't need its own thread

I've never thought of the Ikran having any Romulan tech aboard - it's meant to be something of a reflection (!) of the same sort of imperial/predatory culture that would develop ships like the Birds of Prey, but in this case, it was Terrans who did it. As you can see, from the top, it looks quite a bit different from Romulan architecture:

Re: Art that doesn't need its own thread

Reminds me a bit of the Burke-class Frigate, but also my Sparrow-class Frigate, which I can easily see the Ikran's evolving into, in timelines where the Empire survived beyond 2380.
The configuration is a little different, but the similarities are there.

And now that I've done the outside of the ship, how about a peek inside?

What render setting did you use on this? I love it.

Inspired by Kail's foray into using Poser to expand his "Star Trek Animated" art, I've been trying to get a good cartoon render of my Crossbow-class starship. Once I had a decent one, I just couldn't resist putting it over a suitably-cartoonish background .

Re: Art that doesn't need its own thread

Glad you like them - after all, it was your inspiration that led me to them .

Poser (at least the Pro version) has "toon shaders," and also a "toon outline," which is a separate render setting. I use the 'medium pen' outline setting pretty much exclusively, and I sometimes have to render multiple times to get Poser to actually apply it - the feature still seems pretty immature. The 'toon shaders' give a 3-level contrast to the material, rather than smooth shading, for more of a cell-shading appearance, but the outline color of them doesn't seem to work, so you have to also apply the 'toon outline' to the render - sadly, it doesn't offer any color choice than black. Hopefully, SM will sort this out if it's pointed out to them (constructively ). With a bit of trial and error, I've gotten to this point, where I think they come out pretty nicely, although it only seems to look this good on non-organic shapes - people still don't look very convincing, IMHO.

I can't get anything even close to this.

It's a silly idea, but I thought I might as well do it before someone came up with the same thing.

My interpretation of the crew of the Aventine (from the novels):
