Basilisk-Iron Spear by AdamBurn Basilisk-Iron Spear by AdamBurn
Download for full view

Here is another skin for the Human Capitol ship the Basilisk for the MMORTS game Novus Aeterno. These fellas have been through hell, their ships reflect this by being rather beat up, bits missing, exposed interiors, and extra plating welded onto the sides, they leak as well. However despite their weak jury rigged appearance they know what they are doing and the ship is working at peak efficiency thanks to some rather inventive skills with the welding torch. Do not underestimate them.

I think it is possible I sent the message..

"This is great. Do you maybe plan to do more? If you are still into space ship drawings, please contact me!"
twice now, but here I just wish to say I am loving this art style.

Never underestimate it...right...it might have a nuke embedded underneath the hull plating to give any enemy stupid enough to destroy it a heart attack XD

really like the shape of this one, It feels like it can house a long range weapon inside there. Nice!

what do you use to make images like this? I can draw very well, and I have so many cool ideas for ships, but I just can't seem to draw ships without spending weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks.

I use a technique I slowly developed over the years that uses both photo references and painted areas, so I may take a part of a US carrier ship and warp it to fit an area then paint into areas that I want to change. It's a technique that quite a lot of artists have been using and it can add a really good sense of realism to an image.

That's great. Is this all in photoshop, or are you starting with a CG model?

Remainds me somewhat of those Reaver-ships from Firefly/Serenity, jury rigged with extra platings but leaking all over the place minus the "decoration" (aka dead bodies chained to the hull). ;)

This one is my favorite skin of all because I love the saying: "What doesn't kill you will only make you stronger!". And this guys show exactly that :P.
Plus the state of the ship shows that they experienced the most fierce battles that could have been and they know how to survive. And above all, because they look week, the enemies usually underestimates them witch gives them a slight advantage in a battle.
Nice work :P I love this one and I can't wait for the game to be released :D

I like the look of this ship. Especially the tusk-like triangle pieces at the front.

Very Ork-ish. We don't know how it still works, they don't know either, but they believe really firmly that it does.
