czacen: I work primarily as an Environment Artist - been doing that for around 5 years now. Before that, if was a lot of hard surface prop modeling.
Anyhow, the new image looks great. The green tint is a bit odd, but I kinda like it.
Wow . That's some great concept arts, czacen. While the fighters are awesome, just standing there, waiting to take off, the landing deck is truly magnificent, as it has already been said. I already saw a lot of artworks (less than Howard or other people here, of course), but a WC artwork displaying the deck we all took off from in WCIII to get to Kilrah. Awwww !
(Damn, I'm just getting excessive here, but, hey, it's good !)
Thanks guys! I will keep going with this stuff, I'm having too much fun to stop . Today I was kind of tired when I got back from work, so the piece I churned out is neither very good or very WC accurate. Perhaps I should rename this thread to WC concept art since it seems to be developing more towards that.
Thanks everyone, I'm glad people like what they see so far. I still need much more experience so I'm gonna keep at it. Meanwhile today's piece is one of my rough re-designs of the Tallahassee. Its my fave looking ship from WC3/4. Comments Crits and Feedback welcome
I think that Tallahassee could be thought of like the Exeter and the Gilgamesh destroyers. A new ship with a small flight deck cause the flat part on the front looks like it could be just that and it looks like it could hold it’s own in a fight a little longer then the normal Tallahassee class. And I do agree these pics are awesome
Thanks Wedge. Actually the Tallahassee has a lot of potential to be modernized and streamlined. Milatry that's a very good idea. Ill try showcasing that in the next iteration of the design. As for today's image, Im not too pleased with how its turned out, but its a step forward from my initial rendering of this ship. Also I tried placing the bridge in the center like in a submarine rather than a aircraft carrier. Any ideas on how to improve it?
I don't know, I kinda like the short, center mounted tower- it has a real "modernized" WC3 feel to it. What about adding some shorter "wings" to the conning tower kind of like the WC2 Concordia / WC1 Tiger's Claw or a modern day submarine? The wings don't have to be as pronounced as either of the above examples, but I think it it would add a little texture to your tower design while paying homage to WC1/WC2 designs.
