You, my friend, are in luck! Two things in a single month... I'm on a roll
- Kind of. I imagine the British monarchy and the Commonwealth Realm (if not the United Kingdom as it is now) to still exist in some form in the late 23rd century. This is my take on the reigning monarch's Royal Yacht of the time. It's certainly a Federation vessel as the Commonwealth is part of United Earth, which itself is part of the UFP. As to whether it's a naval ship - it depends if the Royal Navy also has a space fleet, or if there's a separate branch of the armed forces for space service.
[I don't think this is going to be my final piece...]
- Oh, WOW!!! That's absolutely stunning! Thank you, @BorgMan (you snuck in as I was replying to gazomg) - I love it!
EDIT: I've been gazing at your beautiful Britannia render for the past hour and a half (in between working on my own final piece). It's so atmospheric. I want to go for a sunlit cruise amongst some asteroids now!
Instead, I'll have to settle for an actual atmospheric jaunt over the English countryside:
I've made a start on this month's art challenge - In Times of Crisis as set by BorgMan - but first up, here's the almost final image for May's challenge which I'd neglected to post here:
[I didn't like the stats on the graph paper - not least because the paper wasn't level! - so used a previous version for the final image instead]
And here's a snippet of my idea for June along with a possible look for the title. This is just a quick sketch to establish the layout and probable colours. I'm only showing a small part of it as I don't want to spoil the ending!
^ the sketch snippet looks intriguing! i do love that kind of style. (great colors!)
Thanks, @Captain pl1ngpl0ng
Here's a snippet of the final piece (unfinished at the moment) - I'm just trying out lettering...
Despite a couple of setbacks (a spelling mistake "aerfvadh" instead of "aefvadh", and a distracting background behind the Romulan refugees), I've finished the physical part of my entry for this month's art challenge: In Times of Crisis...
I need to take a better photo of it (when the sun's out), but here is an "almost ready" version, complete with lettering:
I just hope that you find the flow reasonably logical, and that it makes sense?
Hot damn dude... That's a great piece! Totally embodies what I was aiming for!
You make sure to get a high-res version out there, I'd love to print this!
Thanks, @BorgMan But high-res will show up even more of the flaws!!
(The physical piece is only A4 size - 210x295mm, plus a circle's bulge or two...)
Nothing a bit of Photoshop can't do to get it to at least A3 or A2 while still looking nice!
- Your wish is my command!
(I've gone and posted it in the challenge thread, too)
- I hope so
