hmm
very graceful design

what kind of carrier I wonder...I see pods on the bottom... fuel tanker? or do those pods the hangerbays?

the top seems to be the showpiece of the ship, looking more... artistic. I picture the underside of the ship looking very complex, holding the more vital components

I am wondering about this book project now, seems very interesting

Thank you for the kind words.

Yes the under carriage is engines and hanger bays. It's supposed to be a carrier ship and rather large. I tried to make it seem big with the small windows but somehow a big bird ship looks less large is more literal in aesthetic, which the description kinda implied. Overall it got the idea across I think though :)

my pleasure sir

ah okay, that makes sense
hmm
well I think you got the idea down nicely, bird shaped ships are usually more along the lines of fighters, thats why I think it may come across as smaller looking..or atleast that's my idea

"Splugorth" and "Taskmaster" really don't fit the elegance of this vessel. Hell, with a name like Splugorth, I'd imagine a race of intelligent slime molds.

Concept aside, an ugly name deserves an ugly ship.

Oh, I agree. When I read the description I was given from Palladium and read the name I had a similar reaction but once you understand what the Splugorth are (thanks cjhaacke for some extra info here) you come to know that they lord over many races (minions) and actually it was the Kittani (the ape type fellows like the one I posted) that designed this ship. Weird name does kinda make you think ugly ship, I feel ya there.

Thanks for the comments :)
