Commissioned: Shadowdancer by Colourbrand Commissioned: Shadowdancer by Colourbrand
This is the NCCS Shadowdancer, a vessel that plays a major role in :iconshuichiboy:: universe.

The young man wanted the design brought to life - and here it is :)

The vessel is an explorer, transporter and a fighter if need be.

Comments and feedback most welcome :)

Magnificent!   I love the atrium dome and I can imagine it being a very pleasant living and relaxation area for the crew.    I imagine it with hydroponic plants growing for food to provide fresh produce for long exploration missions.

It is rather inspiring...  kinda makes you want to have one of your own...

Thank you sir - it is what the commissioner wanted - something practical but spaceous - to make the vessel feel more than just a ship.

I am glad you have those feelings sir - :) means a lot that the art has some impact :D

Hee hee. You called me "young man." I'm probably way older than most people on dA.  =P

The ship doesn't play a major role... yet. Now that the current story is closing in on the end, new ones are taking shape in my head. I'm going to keep this up until I die.  :) It'll be fun to play with the new ship!

Neat! Somehow reminds me more of a Cruise ship than a explorer vessel. Ship Emote 

.... I think People transporter counts in this case, doesn't it? :D (Big Grin)

I have a thing for ocean liners, from the Brittania in the mid-1800s all the way up to the Queen Mary 2. I wanted a design to reflect that.  :)

It's still an exploration vessel though. The humans in my story have not lost their thrill and awe of space travel, and their ships, passenger or otherwise, reflect that.  :)

A beautiful design, i especially like the nacelles and the raised section, which i guess is the bridge.
