I love RTS games! Especially C&C
It's been a while since I posted any drawings, and I don't have any for you now. I can't promise you that I will in the near future, but I am working on some large scale ones for later. I have done one, but, it's on A1 and I have no idea how to scan it on an A4 scanner, because I don't want to fold it and mess everything up. Any ideas?
However, on a different note, I have something else that might pique your interests. I do have an old game, Star-Wars: Dark Forces, and it seems to be a pre-windows PC game. Can anyone help me verify this? Would I need DOSbox to run it on Windows 7?
Here's a picture that might help:
I forgot to add: if anyone wants to use my work that's original, they can, just inform me and give me credit.
I finally managed to stitch the Firehawk blueprint together, it was not an easy job. I took my time to make the stitching look as good as possible, though if I had spent even more time on it, it would have looked better(probably). Here it is:
This is my most detailed piece of work to date, and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it, even though it was hard at parts. The wingtips are somewhat clipped off, but they didn't justify scanning them as there is very little left off. I concede that it looks disproportionate in places, but I used a different technique to determine the propotions, and it didn't work out quite well, as you can see, and it took me a lot longer than it should have.
This will be my last post till atleast October, as I have shown you almost all I have drawn, and the last one I am still working on, and is a concept of mine that I am developing, so it won't be ready for quite some time. Enjoy these for the time being though!
I managed to scan 3 compound blueprints today, that is, drawn on more than one page. Two of them are my concepts and ideas, while the other one is a blueprint of the Kodiak from Tiberian Twilight that I drew using stock images fom cnc.wikia.com.
I'll start with the Kodiak blueprint, and I won't explain it, since this needs little explanation, and I wouldn't be able to give a sufficient one if asked for it, so hit the link if you want to know more.
This is one of my more detailed blueprints, and one of the later ones I drew. As I drew them, they progressively grew bigger and more detailed. I really love capturing the detail of picture in blueprints on paper. It's fun, but I don't know why.
Next is a concept I created, I think the third or fourth that I ever drew. It was inspired by the V-35 Ox from Tiberium Wars and the Bell Boeing Quad Tiltrotor concept. I call it the Oxstar, but it's just a placeholder for now.
It's what I imagine will be a prototype when people start developing tiltjet aircraft seriously, or maybe a crude slap-together of engines on a cargo plane to make it VTOL for a while or just a badly made VTOL aircraft. But I was learning about aircraft then, and I can confidently say I understand them much better now.
The last one is another VTOL concept, with the placeholder name of AJV-23 "Oshind". I know it sounds dorky, but I couldn't think of anything else, so it's what is for now.
This is, as you've probably already guessed A Hind/Osprey hybrid with a tiltjet twist, but maybe it can be used for cargo. It has a NOTAR configuration with the A-15 Orca's twin tails. I don't fully understand the NOTAR thing, or even if this needs it, but this is my crude understanding of it. This is my most recent concept, and I like it, but it's not paticularly original.(It's a work in progress, so all the details such as weapons are still being worked out.)
So, what do you think of these? Are the placeholder names too horrible? I don't mind "Oxstar" but "Oshind" has to go, and I can't think of anything. Could you people please suggest something? I have only one more blueprint that I may or may not publish tomorrow, and then you probably won't hear much from me afterwards. Please comment. I'll try to appreciate as best as I can.
I uploaded only three of my drawn blueprints yesterday, I had to stitch together another two digitally before I could upload them and scan a third.
First off: A modular wing fighter jet that is configurable inflight according to the pilot's agility needs and it can have upto three vertical stabilisers attached on the ground.
It can have use the wingtips as winglets if needed as well, activated via the cockpit. It has no name, and I can't think of one, so I'm asking you for suggestions. I'm also considering making it VTOL by adding thrust vectoring to its list of features. What do you think?
Second: A plane that would be used as a standard mass produced fighter for general use. That's what I envision it to be. It's for novice pilots that have just been certified to fly combat missions or for general use.
I came up with this in 2009, when I had time in school to draw out my imagination to my heart's content. I don't know what to call it so I'm looking for suggestions.
And last but not least, BOB(Black Ordnance Bomber):
This was one of the first concepts that I drew. I'll leave you to read the description to see what it's for.
So people, what do you think of these? Please leave comments about what you think. I have a blueprint that I drew on altleast 5 sheets of paper of the Tiberian Twilight firehawk. I can't figure out how to scan it effectively with an A4 scanner. Can anyone suggest how I do it?
I feel like haven't contributed much to this site so I decided to contribute what I can do: draw blueprints by hand. I haven't got all the time in the world nor access to software like 3DS max(learning blender is very daunting for me, I like picking stuff up as you go along) so there will be a few demonstrations of my work now and then. I try not to compare myself to other people because I just feel in awe of the people who make models on 3ds max for a hobby. These may not be very good, but I can do them and I am proud of it.
First off, a blueprint of the A-15 orca.
I feel there is no explanation needed for this one on this site. I am a big fan of C&C games.
Secondly, the uber-cool hypersonic fighter from Kane's wrath:
This was called the hypersonic fighter when I first saw it and drew it.
And finally, my own concept(I hope):
I don't have a name for it yet but suggestions are welcome(It's a swarm fighter). See my images page for more details on it.
