thanks for all the comments! - really appreciate it.
Atmospheria - thanks, maybe you'll have a crit later - there is always place for improvement no?
MorteM - cheers, my dad is a shoe designer so i grew up with shoes and the smell of glue and leather everywhere...
Shamagim - didnt know this book was anticipated. the tentacle ship originally started out as a duct ship. see below.
PoohGee - cheers. glad you like the design..
Salaryman - that means a lot coming from you! big big fan of your work. hope to get to that next level drawing skill of yours.
Bojee - yeah i'll probably end up using it in an environment pic i need to occupy. more like starting from a city scene and occupy it with designs or character that i did. as opposed to making a background for a design i did, know what i mean? the environments are my lead character...
clogik - thanks man, love your book. i like to see books with design sketches. its CA after all.
alright. i went and did some more thumbs on the ship design. i like the tentacle ship sketch but when i did the first thumbs i was thinking of a ship made of ducts and pipes.

and coloring in PS
i like the design, but think i like the colors of that glowing tentacle version better. i did pencils on my lighttable this time and i think i miss the blue pencil line, which kept things a bit more loose.
