Commissioned: SlipStream Class by Colourbrand Commissioned: SlipStream Class by Colourbrand

This is another commission for the great :iconshoguneagle: - the Slipstream Class Light Cruiser.


Originally this was going to be the Nebulae Class Medium Cruiser but I did not like the role compared to the design – it looked too fast, speedy, nifty; not the characteristics of a medium class cruiser. So I used the design as a light – and in a way a bridge between light ships like the Comet Class Gunship and heavier vessels in the Alliance’ fleet.


It looked the perfect bridge, and I went with that angle, and :iconshoguneagle: loved it. That made it all worth while.


There are days I have where I feel why bother, that I am not good enough, that it’s all a waste of time; and then someone says great words and it makes it all worth it :)


Cheers sir :D

Very cool :)
Your work always amazes me,  wish I had half the skill you have when it comes to creating an image from a blank canvas.

Thank you sir - but my skills are mediocre compared to your excellent works with CGI - damn stirring stuff - kind that inspires and envies :D

Thank you very much mind :D

What a hot rod! :love: This must be the Harley Davidson of the galaxy, or an ultra modified 1932 Ford Deuce Coupe in space! I am absolutely in LOVE with all that artillery she carries. And that paint job! It looks as though someone had the idea to paint the continents of their planet onto their warship, as a sign of patriotism! Fast, hard-hitting, with a loud hull - that's the ship for me, if I was a star captain. =D

Great work here!

WOW! What a great statement - and that is what I think the commissioner had in mind - that patriotic mad colour scheme! As for the rest of her, yep she is that - a speedy killer with enough armament to make one think twice :D

Thank you my friend for your stirring and epic words :D

Although it is a light cruiser it is well equipped with turrets :) excellent work do love the bridge in special (and the "sensor" behind it
Colourbrand Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thank you sir - that sensor is also the housing for one of two larger laser weapons.

Cheers muchly :D
