Hello  and  Welcome   behind  the  scenes,  and  away  from  the  story  line.  Here  is  the  place  to  see  Works  In  Progress...W.I.P's.  It  was  suggested   to  me,  that  some  might  wish  to see  just  how  these  idea's  and  designs  come  about...So,  here  you  will  find  examples.from  start  to  finish.  So  jump  aboard  the  train  of  thought,  and  take  a  tour  of  the  creative  process!  Sit  could  get  bumpy.

" Sandor's  Ring"  has  gone  the  way  of  the  dinosaur.  The  color  effort  failed.     BUT....THERE'S  A  NEW  PAINTING  IN  THE  WORKS!!!  ( Below ) "Leviathan "  is   on  hold  at  this  point.

Below, The color study, made from the above image. :)



  Above...The  bottom  layer  of  a  new  painting  in  progress. The  good  old  Yamato  ( now  self  lit  for  deep  space  travel ) Add to  this, gun flash  from  turret  #2.  It's  also  a  big canvas...18 X 24.  The  largest  I've  done  in  a  long  time!  As  for  detail...check  out  the  hatch  covers  on  the first  gundeck, or  the  red  light reflecting from  the  turret  directory!


Above,  the  sad  End  of  "Sandor's  Ring"... ( color  was  applied  to  the  turrets, and  got  ugly...Orange to blue add gray )  So, now  the  drawing, a  month long  endevore...will  end  up  gathering  dust  in  the  never to be  finnished  pile.  (  Sometimes,  art  stinks...:)  Oh  well,  Back  to  the  Drawingboard.



Above, A  few  scans, and  an  overall view  of  the  new  Drawing, "Sandor's  Ring"...A  beautiful  "WHAT  MIGHT  HAVE  BEEN"  DRAWING...Too  bad  the  color  got  so  @###%**+%#@  ( messed )  up!  The  drawing  itself  is  wonderful, and  some  pictures  were  taken  of  the  black  and  white.  Maybe  something  good  will  come  of  it,  yet.

.    Below,  a  preview  of  the  next  ship  of  war...The  Monster  that  will  be  christened  "Leviathan."



Above,  the  concept  for  the  beast...(  Mind  you,  it  probibly  will  look  abit  different  when  completed. )   Below,  The  unique  Quad - configured  Ultra - wave    cannons  and  ram  bow  being  schemed.
