The answer to that is to make requests of the extremely talented artists around here, such as CanisD, or XRaiderV1. It's what I did.

You don't need to be able to draw like us, just draw and keep drawing and slowly your powers will grow. A drawing of a 1000KB begins with a single pixel...

Yes, Master Canis... :twisted:


We need an emoticon for Razzing someone, Canis, Twisted is too easy to confuse for POed.

MS Paint works just fine, and the main thing is practice!!! I wish I still had the old floppy disks with my first attempt to draw an Omega Class Destroyer from B5. They were so bad that you'd probably get cancer just looking at them! They sucked beyond any possibility of comprehending how horrifically badly they sucked!

we are all our own worst critics...

know exactly how ya feel though, wish I had my first figures, etc...god if I had my...eh nevermind...irrelevant ...I digress

I am rarely satisfied with the figures I paint, and not just spaceships...some do look better than others the Viper mk-II's came out beautifully-its that striking white and red-looks great on a space map...

yeah if someone did a Cool Titan-B I might change my mind about it, as it is I am unconvinced of its aesthetic virtues...leaving the Titan A as my biggest Colonial Mini...still the B would be bigger in tonnage and carry more embarkable craft and they may even be able to carry FFE or Corvettes, Gunboats, PF's (as you wish to call them in your universe) internally...in seperate large bays which it looks to have lots of those...and plenty of room for lots of Viper-launch-tubes...

whadda ya hear?

Titan -A is indeed extremely powerful (especially since I added 2 even larger caliber KEW triple turrets to its Ventral-Bow and Dorsal-bow surfaces), and is capable in a duel of outgunning a Worldstar...or our campaign's does...its faster, more heavily gun-armed, and carries almost enough fighters to make a difference in defense versus a Worldstars Horde of craft...

I guess if I had both figures I would keep my Titan-A as a BB super heavy gun variant Flag-Battlestar, and designate the B as the super Flag-Battlestar-carrier, variant and give it no additional heavy KEW or missiles...a role for both models....Frak may have to buy one...sistership to my Zeus...

The Colony yeah I am trying to kitbash one of those...Worldstar is just cool...great figure...

whadda ya hear?

I mainly do customs and mods, I did one partially original, and one completely chop job style design, I have yet to see another ship that can inspire me to do a second chop job design.

as to programs, some here use gimp, some, ultimate paint, others use mspaint, me I use paint.net, I find the precision it affords to be a literal godsend.

the main factor in choosing a program is to pick one you feel the most comfortable with.

hope this helps.
