Is that a Homeworld reference?

Because it looks like a Vagyr Carrier.

This is not a Homeworld art, but the style is very similar.

This picture is the embodiment of everything good about the Macross/ Robotech animated series.

That's a very nice work there! Buuut could use some bit of explosion, maybe some scratch and scars on the ship and more lasers. There's always room for more lasers! Good job!

Thanks! Yeah, lasers and scraps will be good. But when drawing a ship, I didn't think about creating a full scene - planet and space appear unexpectedly.

Anyway, now I'm imagined all as you said and it should looks perfect! :)

Thanks a lot! =)

Drawing a planet, I started from a main color (near pastel orange), then lighten horizon zone with yellow in different blend modes, selected stripes colors (all not so bright - brown, pale green, dark violet and others) and almost chaoticaly paint lines on two layers with "lighten" and "dodge" with soft brush and high transparency (stipes lays under horizon layer). For the final I take almost all layers and double them with different blends... yeah, love this way :3 So, it was an improvisation, there is no "right" technique - any method, which would satisfy you with result, will be good.

I almost forgot - use a Finger tool to mix colors on stripes. It is the key feature of success! :D

ion cannons for pesky frigates and such? Missiles for the big ones?

Exactly! But anyway, there is "all for all" - this ship not so big, destroyer or something near (between frigate and cruiser on my classification).

alright, but a destroyer can already pack a punch :) *loves complex and the REARM mods*

Yes, I'm big fan of this brilliant game and style of my ships wearing a big stamp of Homeworld universe (in good meaning, I hope).
