A bunch of Space Ships.
The first series of ships were concepts I created for the EVE online contest over at DeviantART. I tried to explore many different shapes with mixed succes.
I chose to make a more detailed side view from the last starship design. The Korean characters are supposed to say something like 'Vanguard 15'.
This particular piece I created as an illustration for an Sci-Fi story. One of the goals was to create a believable spaceship, largely consistent with modern day science.
The crew compartments are hidden between the cargo bays for protection. There are sensor arrays and sun collectors on the front; primary and secondary fuel tanks are visible on the exterior; Several unfolded heat radiators can be seen; Lastly, there are propulsion engines to go forward or backward, as well as steering thrusters to go in any other direction.
