HMS Belfast by RadoJavor HMS Belfast by RadoJavor
My first sci-fi picture ever done. Its one of my oldest pictures, done some 4 years ago. I was just beginer in this time and was just looking for the right style. The whole pic is done in painter, which is nice for more artistic feel.
The design of the ship is mine, I was thinking that this is more real look of the space vessels in our world.

Beautiful pic and does capture a nice "modern day" feel to the starship look.

Can we have more of these please? They're really cool! Also very interesting to see something that could be, it's not so out landish, it's nice to see something like that. Really love it and it's sister piece.

Oddly reminds me of the Minmatar ships from EVE-Online that some of them had that cool exposed framework.

velmi krásne
:eyepopping:, rada by som Tvoj obrazok použila do hry ak by to bolo možné

I really like how you included what seems to be a rotating section of the ship, to simulate gravity. A nice touch, and a great piece overall.

Interesting design. Poorer texturing than your other pieces. But hey, it's 4 years old. One of the things I like about art is that you can look at something you did yesterday and say, I could do much better now.

for your first scifi-pic this is awesome!

i specially like the realistic style! :)

I live in Belfast :P
But this is really an inspiring piece, well done :)

I'm curious... Does it have any heavy weaponry? I can only see light turrets. The design is pretty sweet, and the art is just fantastic. Not like you don't hear that all the time xD.

Very nicely done indeed. I agree with you that this is a fairly realistic space vessel. Nice attention to detail, though I would have added a few more weapons.
shitfuckcrap Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2009
is there any reason why the name of the ship is Belfast?
Bulska Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2009  Professional Artist
very nice, very realistic!

and 4 years old? whoa I wonder what you're currently capable of :D
Psyoptikon Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2009
This is a very, Eve looking painting... Not sure if you're familiar with Eve Online. But the design is almost mimic'ing a "Caldari" space station.

I highly encourage you to check it out if you haven't heard of it, I'm sure you could find some interesting inspiration for more Sci-Fi art. It's truly an amazing game!

I'd say this is what spaceships will look like for some time, until war permeates space too and they have to bulk up to avoid being shot up :D

great job, you should paint some more sci-fi it would add to your range of works nicely!

very cool!!!
EvilGermanTier Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2009
This is the most realistic design for a spaceship I ever seen on DA.

You should do more Sci Fi , coz your style rules.

Wonderful job with the Empire art department.
Those guys were lucky to have you on board.
You alone sole the game for them.

( not bullshiting you, coz the game sucks but your art does NOT)

Allow this humble mortal to add this to his Favourites, your past work was really good.

It kinda looks like the Nostromo.

Even for a first Sci-Fi picture it looks awesome!

Finally something that does look like a spaceship - frame, rotating module, complete engine in the back (should be a bit larger and more away if You consider nuclear propulsion).

Good job.

I did a sketch of a realistic spacecraft myself recently, it looked pretty much the same
with the stationary core with protrusions, the revolving gravity compartments and the rear engine suspended from an extension.
I guess this is close to what scientists
perceive as future spaceship design.

PS I visited HMS Belfast in London
yeras ago, pretty impressive but ancient
in design.

Nice, I like that you made it a British ship! :)

Haha, all artists think that their work can be further improved 'cause they see the flaws in them ^^.
