Syzygy-class Corvette, Redux
A redo of the original Syzygy. I like it a great deal more.
The TNV
Syzygy, name ship of the class.

Made for Chronicles of Man, ver 3.0, owned by TheChroniclesofMan.

The Syzygy is the smallest ship in the Threshold of Hadrian Navy meant for full on warfare. Though it's cannon armament is not necessarily considerable, it has a sufficient number of light missiles and a Frigate's Electronic Warfare system, allowing it to go toe-to-toe with larger ships.

SPECS NOW AVAILABLE HERE.

Destiny-class Cutter, Redux^2
(I wasn't satisfied with the cockpit of the last one, and after being thoroughly satisfied with work I'm doing on the Syzygy, I decided to make the Destiny more in-line with that work.)
The TNV Harrow, first Destiny-class Cutter to see combat.

Made for Chronicles of Man ver.3.0

I've been working on this for over a month now, bit by bit. Never really fell in love with my original Destiny-class, and with a little more skill and more ideas, I was able to do this recolor/refit.

This is a replacement for the original Destiny, not a "Block II."

This one was largely done off the suggestions and concept art done by of TheChroniclesofMan, aka the artist-formerly-know-as-madeinjapan1988 (with his permission), who owns the Chronicles of Man franchise.

The Destiny-class is a small cutter, designed to patrol local spaces around Threshold of Hadrian  planets as a bottom-tier Ship-of-the-Lance. Armed with two cannons and a small missile complement, it is best used for fending of pirates and criminals.

SPECS NOW AVAILABLE HERE.

Having gotten to see it from the ground up, I can't say that you don't always astound me with your new standards and skill to match. Every detail is meticulous. The design makes the scale almost obvious. The use of color is superb, especially in those areas where colors, though standard, are far less frequent, but still fitting.

Zooming in on your works is always a treat; you never fail to add the tiny things that few would appreciate.

The only complaint I have about the work is that much of it is unnecessarily detailed. While impressive, much of the detail will be lost, and the work could have made the same impact without. Where this becomes an issue is time; you could have made a corvette for Eirangard, likely, in the same time it took you to add all of these other little things. While nice for the piece itself, scaling back on future pieces may be wise when considering time constraints for releasing CoM material - we want to see Eirangardian ships within the decade.

Don't redo this one.
Lambda Luxury Yacht
This was done partially as a commission... but mostly as a joke.
This is why Ryly, one of our fellow CoM founders, doesn't do art.

As a Christmas gift to him, I redid a ship that he drew (in about 30 seconds). I intended for it to look rather 1960's retro (and didn't do near as much detail as I could have.)

So, I'm now back from my last ever deployment (YAY!), and I'll be transferring to Nuclear Power Training Unit, Charleston SC to train new sailors on how to operate nuclear reactors.

Real reason for this post:  I'm planning on a username change! Possibly.

Current options:
Keep Afterskies.
Problem9 (Or ProblemNine, ProblemNyne) (There's some backstory behind it)
TwinDiesel (Also a story)
Pharthan (After my Nationstates Nation, which is what most of my art is for)
or suggest one! If you do, don't make it too focused on the Navy or anything like that. I'd be open to it, but I don't want to go full Joe-Sailor.

Cool, my name on Nationstates is Nonador.

I am currently the member of the region "Commonwealth of Liberty" which is a very active region focused on roleplay. We are currently in the year 1980. Feel free to look us up!

I may do more subs, but as far as designing them for Nationstates, I have little needs of a new sub; maybe an SSK.
