Once again thx for kind comments and downloading the ships guys.
Wonder what's next. :D
A preview then
I haven't got far into this set yet, did a little last night and now just begun work on them again, but its going very quickly, so maybe tonight, but probably tomorrow night.
Here is the interesting method I'm using to create them. First I went to family8 the blue and yellow ships used by the Haakonish in the default theme. I then took the eraser to each ship that was 150px or bigger through the whole set and erased about half of the ship, creating interesting new shapes. Because using the eraser brush with the mouse is a wobbly affair I cut them in half and flipped them so the ships won't turn out wonky, so this will be a symmetrical set again. Now I'm sticking those shapes together to make ships There was a colour change thrown in too.
The ships are the same colour as the skin of the race that flies them I had planned on making them less high tech looking, but, due to the method I'm using to make them they actually look quite sleek. But its turned out okay, annoying little wasps flying annoying little waspy ships
We have a Capital or Cruiser (probably Cruiser because the image size might be a bit small for a Cap), and the bomber and fighter, which were originally the frigate and escort, but they looked a bit weird in the game, the ships looked a bit too big for wings like that.
