Privateer by the-least Privateer by the-least
This is a render of the privateer vessel which will play a central role in my comic [link]

I wanted to go for that aged, weathered look - a ship which has seen a lot of action and a lot of owners over the years. It's a very flexible design, comparable to a military corvette but with additional comforts for the crew. There's a large lounge (in the aft of the starboard hull, not pictured), spacious crew quarters, and a shuttle nestled between the primary hulls (with its wings folded up in this render). The port hull features a launchbay capable of carrying a second shuttle, fighter or whatever the captain desires, plus a sizable cargo hold.

Modelled and rendered in Cinema 4D

Like BenRG, I think that's the first time I've ever seen the shuttle in between the hulls. It looks really nice! You should do a render of it on its own as a bonus page between the next chapters, or something.

Ah! Niobe. More than a ship (although I bet Hal would term it 'rust bucket' :p ), a home for our anti-heroes. I always look forward to Mondays as it means more of my favorite webcomic.

You know, that is the first time that I noticed the shuttlecraft on the inter-hull connector.

I also note that turret #3 is shown on the bottom of the crew section. Any possibility of Vegyr moving it over to the cargo section and putting a second Point Defence turret on the bottom of the crew section? Yeah, I know: "Paid for with what?" Well, I'm pretty sure that, very soon, Saphirra will owe him for handling the Mensk problem for her. ;)

Very cool. It's pretty similar in overall design to the Dralthi IV from Wing Commander III/IV/Armada.

Awesome work! I'm a huge fan of the whole wing commander saga and recently am really excited about the new privateer remake! U should check it out and do some of the new modelling for the game! :)
