Defender Class Starship, Part 1

The ship’s overall design is based on the Shepard class “U.S.S. Gagarin” from Star Trek: Discovery. Since I saw the ship for the first time on screen, it was – for me – one of the most likeable designs of all the different Starfleet vessels. Even if the look would have fitted more in the 24th century era.
So I took the Gagarin and designed my own late 24th/early 25th century Starfleet ship. The basic layout is almost the same as the Shepard class. I also added some details from other ships – e.g.: Sovereign class escape pods & saucer impulse drive sections, Miranda class sensor elements and the hull plating is based on the Akira class.

Star Wars: Armada – Custom Ships, Part 1

In addition to my custom fighter squadrons, I now finished the repaints of my imperial capital ships. I gave them all a black color theme, to mark the ships as members of the same fleet. I also added some windows to the ships, to make them more “alive”.

BSG Shipyard, Part 1

After I found one of my old drawings of a shipyard from Battlestar Galactica, I decided to redesign it. This time I try to give it a more unique look, because my first version was nothing more than the “Scporion Shipyard” (seen in Battlestar Galactica: Razor) in another arrangement.
To get a feel for the scale of the shipyard, I first created the different ships that I will use.

This size chart is now the first step to my new shipyard.

BX Commando Droid & Havranh Vibrosword – Concept Art

I created some new designs for my Star Wars: Destiny comic project. As reinforcements for the Havranh villain, I designed the BX Commando Droid.
I tried to give the BX droid a less cartoony look, so I merged elements from the BX droid and the B1 Battle Droid.
The Droid’s color scheme follows the same design elements that I have used for the B1 droid.

I used the sword of Sentinel Prime from Transformers: Dark Of The Moon as a template for the Havranh vibrosword. To make it recognizable as a Havranh weapon, I used some design element from the Havranh blaster (like the Havranh symbols and the screws).

B1 Battle Droid – Concept Art

I finished new concept arts for my Star Wars: Destiny comic project. This time I designed some variations of a B1 Battle Droid, which might be used for the villain as additional troops.
Because of the, mostly, gray colors I used for havranh designs, I also kept this droid designs in darker colors. Only for the markings of the different departments (like commander, security droids and pilots) I tried to use the same colors as seen in the movies. I also added a simplified Havranh symbol to the chest of the droids to mark them as Havranh units.

Star Wars Day 2017

Happy Star Wars Day to everyone.
This year I have created an illustration to celebrate the Star Wars Day 2017 and the 40th Anniversary of the Star Wars franchise. That is why I drew the opening scene of A New Hope – where it all began.

The Rihanh Star System

The Rihanh star system which will appear in my Star Wars: Destiny comic project, is not only the home system of the main villian and Jedi Knight Aalek DoDrella, it will also be a key position for the final arc of the comic project.
As with the Havranh and Rihanh species, this star system is also based on the Romulans from Star Trek.

The Star Wars Galaxy

The map of the Star Wars galaxy is something I wanted to create since a very long time.
The last few weeks I spent with researches of a lot of different maps in order to create the galaxy as accurate as possible. I have also used the official Star Wars website to point out the exact position of the planets from The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

Despite my efforts, probably not all planets will be in their exact positions.
