Interstellar Queen Departure by Colourbrand Interstellar Queen Departure by Colourbrand
An Interstellar Queen Starliner leaves Earth in the early hours of the day after the Alphan President’s meeting with the Terran Trade Authority. Escorting the ship are two Stingrays, Alpha’s most feared interceptors. Despite the commercial traffic going on, all are oblivious to the departure of the leader of Earth’s ally.

This ship is from again one of the most influential space operas of my childhood – the TTA. I liked the Interstellar Queen but the design was not that grand nor did it make sense; I modified it to give the feel of a proper space liner. The Interceptors were easy to do. The garish colours are staple fashions of the Alphan race who paint their ships in unusual patterns and taints.

My favourite part is the backdrop – saw a magnificent sunset or rise online, downloaded the colours and went from there. The lights were an experiment that went right, and the background ships are a real joy to me.

Please let me know what you think 

Enjoy!

I took a look at the classic version of this ship, and I can see what you meant about it lacking grandeur and a sensible design. I don't know much about TTA, but your rendition is definitely my favorite, giving the Interstellar Queen a beauty and grace befitting of a monarch, while still retaining her canon design. Much thanks and compliments sir! :)

Thank you for such great and kind words :D

They mean a lot :D

As for the TTA, think World War Two in space but no force BS or Luke Skywalker.

I wanted to make the ship look elegant, better than the crate concept that was around at the time.

I am glad it made you feel this way :D!

Cheers my friend :)

No problem friend! I really like the stuff your doing, and I hope more's to come! Not many even recognize alot of these classic SciFi themes, so I feel glad you are carrying the legacy with your fantastic artworks. ;)

If I remember correctly, your rendition of the Interstellar Queen was the first object of interest that caught my attention right away, of the other ships in your gallery. After all, I'm very fond of beautiful starships. Plus, as a bird lover, this ship suited my taste perfectly, due to her resemblance of a swan in flight. :D

Once again, thanks for your helpful and informative replies to my questions as well, I've learned quite a bit!

A cheers back to you too, friend! :)
