Thatnks for the compliments. No they aren't based off aircraft carrier colors.

This is basically what I'm going with. The details still need to be pinned down though.

Command: Commanding officers, communications
Security: Security and weapons
Engineering: Enginerring and Maintenance
Executive: C-in-c and other executive staff
Operations: Navigation, helm
Training: Training
Logistics: Cargo and supplies

Medical and sciences are civilian divisions but their colors are white and blue respectively

I like the overall concepts, especially the insignia and overall uniform design. However, I'm not wild about the "T" stripes on the uniform midsections... they seem kind of distracting to me.

Great job, though. I love Romulan War stuff.

Re: Earth-Romulan War 2D Artwork

Is there a particular point to the T shaped lines on the jackets?

Re: Earth-Romulan War 2D Artwork

The T-bar design was a progression from a design revision of the Enterprise uniform.

Now keep in mind these images are just to illustrate the design progression, they aren't intended to represent "in universe" uniform designs.

The T-bar was based on the Enterprise uniform:


I thought the design could use a bit more color so I added these torso bars.



I ended up removing the shoulder bars because we've has so many years of shoulder patterns with TNG era Trek, and I wanted something different. With the lack of shoulder bars I thickened the torso lines.


It just seemed natural to bring the two sides together in the middle. With this revision the "I-bar" was born.


This next revision came along just to bring variety I suppose.


I can't recall what form the uniform was in before this next revision. It could have been a jumpsuit or something else. However, I really like the Movie Era designs, so I created a variety of based off the "Monster Maroons." With the jacket the lower bar got in the way. It seemed useless to have a skinny little bar along the bottom of the jacket. Thus the lower bar was removed and the design became the "T-bar." I also decided to outline the bar in black rather then have a colored bar on the jacket.


So that's the story. Now that I've been thinking I'm going to do another revision. I want it to look a bit more futuristic. I think I'm going to take some design ques from the movie "Oblivion." I really like that design.

The artwork is great, but the "T-Bar" on those "terrans" kinda reminds me of something.
