Ships



I bought some new paper (the big stuff) and i wanted to draw a spaceship from a birds eye view...

Im not much on planes or things like that so i need some inspiration...

Anyone have any ideas on how or what it should look like?

The only real reference im using is earth & beyond but i want it to be my own, so should i combine futureristic(sp) stuff to modern stuff, or just make everything up?

Hmmm, Bryan Hitch drew an awesome spaceship that was gigantic in JLA: Heaven's Ladder on huge paper that always just blow me away when I see them. However in anime, the spaceships always come across as rather small and uninteresting since I can't remember any half way decent spaceships from a manga or anime though Masemune Shirow always has an interesting mechanical design or two up his sleeve.

If you're looking for inspiration, I would suggest looking up any designs by Jack Kirby since those are always very weird but they're extremely inspiring especially since they look extremely alien. If you can find any of Kirby's artwork for the early issues of Fantastic Four. I also find that looking at the aforementioned Shirow always helps out. However I would look at technology itself and try to come up with your interpretation of it

Jim Burns (sci-fi cover artist) also has some very well-done and exotic-looking spaceships too.

Heres one of my favorite sites for starship ideas ...

Lot of good designs and different ships. All CG though..but they translate well to paper.
