Nice looking art work. The render and the object took time to create. This looks like a Navy vessel on a crusie. Keep up the excellent work.

Someday starship designers will say, "It looks like a submarine? What is that?"

Ha ha!

Seriously, though, I hope not. Our oceans are as much an unexplored realm as outer space -- and there are possibly vast underground oceans on Europa (and maybe Callisto, Ganymede, and Enceladus) worth exploring... And that thought gives me new ideas for some digital art...

Yes, I hope to live long enough to see some sort of exploration of Europa or one of the other moons. I want to see that more than a man setting foot on Mars. That would be nice too, but I'll wager the chances of finding life are far better on a Jovian moon than on that big red rock. If you design some other-planet subs for those explorations, I want to see them. :)

Gets better with each draft! I do hope you have a goal for the "finished" version though. I know how 3D projects can get to that "just one more tweek" phase ;)

I'm thinking about using this in a scene for the Forgotten Galaxy deviantART group's "Moons" contest. That at least gives me a deadline.

Hehe, cool!

I know I keep resisting the urge to go back to characters I have labeled "done"!

Thanks! And everyone keeps saying that! I swear it wasn't intentional! :P

Well, if you think about, space craft and subs are quite similar: They are entirely enclosed craft designed to protect the crew from the very environments they operate within. It's just that yours has a visual similarity instead of just a technical one.


Either way, it's a good ship.

That is true. Also, sci-fi space ships tend to be missing any sort of tanks for propellant or life support; I like to include those, which can tend to increase the perceived similarity to a submarine.
