Speedpaint: Starship by MK01 Speedpaint: Starship by MK01
A beat-up old star frigate cruising in orbit around a barren planet.
Inspired quite a lot by Rob Cunningham's art.

Photoshop, exclusively. Some custom brushes maybe, but nothing fancy.

Hah I know what you mean, it's quite an investment. I was lucky to get a relatively cheap copy second-hand some years back - it's ten years now since that version was released and it still wouldn't pay for me to upgrade, not as long as the old one still does what I need.

I am currently working on a slideshow/video and it will contain many different pictures. Now i have found some images on your site more specific here: that I found very nice and fiting to the content of my video. Now I kindly ask if i may make use of this particular picture in the aforementioned video. It will be published onto youtube. A If my request is denied I will not make use of the picture. I do just wish to use it in the video not print it but it will be in a non commercial way. In credits and description I will make credit to your site and you if you wish.

very cool for a speedpaint. The dimensions are really well done, no wings or segments look bend or assymetric. :P

that looks pretty big for a frigate, is it like the main military's or a pirate?

So, so cool. The similar muted brown colors go together without clashing, and that electric-blue atmosphere cuts across balancing it out. It's great. I feel the need to speedpaint coming on, myself...

Nice reiss, I really like this one. Only thing I could suggest is that the background is too sharp - just as sharp as the main image (the ship). So it draws a bit too much attention because it has less detail. Some slight blurring or texture overlays on the background would make it better I believe.

Mhm, agreed, the BG draws some unwanted attention. Cheers!

NICE. It does have that Homeworld-Cutscene-ish feeling going for it, especially with the ship.

Ship design makes me think of a weird mishmash of Taiidan/Hiigaran concepts. Kinda cool. I could almost see this in some Homeworld mod somewhere. :)

Hmmmh...
It's Space Russians for me, but if you want to think in Homeworld categories I'd rather say it's some kind of Tobari asskicker.

Like destroyer or battlecruiser.
Or carrier eventually.

Agreed, I think I was half thinking about Tobari when I made it. Although I think I borrowed some parts from Hiigaran Firgates as well.

It DOES have that Tobari coloring that the concept art goes into a lot, and it has a feel of "run down, worked until it explodes" technology.

I could see it as a Tobari BC or desty...good point. :nod:
