Not so long ago we decided that the current design for the Human fleet was a bit too utilitarian, our creative director realised that trends in today's society showed a lean more towards sleek, smooth, and curved designs so he created a few rough side profile concepts for the new Human fleet style which he dubbed the "iPod & Bulldozer" design meaning the ships would have both aesthetic flares from both the rugged utilitarian design as well as a contrasting smooth and curved design.
So I was thrown a load of concepts and I got to work on 3D views of the ships, this is the 2D concept for the Dreadnought as well as the new ingame model that's literally just been finished, no fancy lighting just the ingame model. Changes to the design were made on the fly as is apparent.
