As part of Scenario Book 1, I wanted to have some internal art in among the various scenarios. One part of it was the shipyard that the Sintillans were using to build more ships, and I didn't want it to be a completely undetailed set of shapes. One problem I do have when it comes… Continue reading Sketches – Sintilla Shipyard Details
The Provider-class freighter was a bit of a logical outgrowth from the smaller Zweireiner-class freighter. The smaller design was based on having the larger 20m^3 containers connected to a central spine, but the containers could also be connected to one another for additional structural strength. So following in on that is the Provider. While the… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Provider Freighter
September has been a bit of a clean-up month, in more ways than one. I've found myself a bit sidetracked into sorting and organizing a pile of older records, sketches, and notes. The genesis of this is the new Sunday Sketch series that I'm doing, as it requires me to scan in my various sketches… Continue reading September 2019 Sitrep

I picked up a set of GURPS Traveller books over the years, mostly as reference texts (and in general GURPS books are very good reference books), and I saw one of these ships as an unnamed escort in one… Continue reading Sketches – Ibizan Ships

Others are just puns on their official name. A few nicknames seem to defy any kind of logic, but just "are" in the same way that… Continue reading You call your ship what?
This sketch was originally inspired by 3d render someone had posted on Artstation (I think) of a tower structure on top of a mountain, with a spaceship flying towards it. Very industrial, very high-tech. The reason I thought this would be found on Nordhausen, in the Dortmund star system, is because it has a rather...… Continue reading Sketches – Dortmund Processing Tower
One of the things I've built up over the years was a pretty big collection of sketches. While I'm the first to admit that I have the art skills of a physics student (spherical cows and all that), I have done a lot of... passable sketches to work out a lot of details in the… Continue reading Coming Soon: Sketch Sunday
