Space Vagabonds: Nighthound by ukitakumuki Space Vagabonds: Nighthound by ukitakumuki
Done for Space Vagabonds [ [link] ] Gregor Theado 2009

Once in a while you get those crazy passionate clients that actually have vision and know what they want. Gregor is certainly one of them and it was a blast doing these characters and mechanicals for his RPG universe.

This is the dropship used by the Colonial Defence Squadron. They are basically zero G trained rapid response/SWAT teams.

Wanted to go for a menacing look, but still somehow reserved as well, in line with the CDS aesthetic. (they are police, not military) Gave the front profile a 'gaping maw' look when the cargo ramp is lowered, I was thinking a hound of hell unloading her precious babies onto the battlefield (right..). I felt the rotating neck segment could make her seem even more animalistic, on top of giving it a functional purpose, which is namely for balance and better vision for the pilots in confined urban zones.

Ramp opens to the rear too, for more versatility during unloading. Usually that's where the Battlesuit is parked though, so it might be a really tight squeeze trying to get out the back. *shrugs*

I like when the creation has personality. Great achievement.
btw, 2things:
1 - link is broken
2 - Im looking for hobbyist texturers (it means no$$$) for a homeworld mod. It can be only one ship up to a full fleet. If you know anyone, let me know. I'm looking for it outside the game community.

I just had a look through your catalogue here. If I were in a position to, I would want to hire you to do all the artwork for this series I'm working on! Sadly, I can only admire from here, and tell you so. Hope that's okay for now...

Really great design, especially the tail is very interstingly designed. Like it much.
BUT:
I LOVE the front/cockpit section so much! Think it would make a great front for a attackVTOL/Gunship.

Awesome! Great design layout! Agile and yet delicate...a mixture of the ALIENS dropship with the Cobra Attack Helicopter, Nice thought-planning. The rear cannon and FLIR pod is unique. Sure looks futuristic and possible.

Your comments provide interesting insight into the creation process. :) Well thought-through. Does look 'cool' and functional.

What's the 'wing' thingy on the end of the 'c' element? (same accounts for the feet)
