Artwork WIP and Finished: 188 images
Pages Complete: 57/120 (47% of book done)

Welcome to the Oct Update, we're getting close to the half completed mark! Plenty going on in the land of Inc. First, Chris Stoski has been kicking it into high gear lately, and gotten a bunch of amazing artwork done of the main city. Will feature some of it in the next update. And our main human protagonist is almost complete, just a few final details to finish off, thanks to the super talented Bill Zahn.

I just got back from a trip to Utah to shoot reference photos for the project (ok, it was a vacation as well), but came back with approx 3000 photos that my wife and I shot. We visited Moab, Arches National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Goblin Valley and Canyonlands. Such beautiful landscape, expect to see it influence some of the upcoming work.

Almost finished with the 3 main bad-guy boss robots, expect Modern Transformers meets Goldorak!

In December, the first Inc Teaser Poster! And then we plan basically monthly updates (with artwork) for 2015 till the book is complete. Thanks for watching, next year is the big push to get this project complete and in your hands!
Inc Alien Ship 9 by soulburn3d
Inc Alien Ship 9
Here's an Alien Mothership from "Inc", which was the original inspiration for doing my Epic Starship gumroad video tutorial.

40 min video, $2
(Gumroad, accepts Credit Card only) gum.co/afMc
(FastSpring, accepts Credit Card and Paypal) sites.fastspring.com/soulburns…

This multi-part tutorial discusses designing an epic starship in Photoshop, starting with the silhouette, then moving on to refining the shape, and ending in detailing. While the final results look dimensional, 90% of the work is actually done in 2d in photoshop, achieving 3d looking results with only the most minor 3d work involved. Part 3 focuses on detailing the Upper Level of the ship, and then final tweaks to get the final starship design.

If you haven't bought any of this three parter, you can also buy the Parts 1, 2 and 3 bundle (for $5, $1 off the price of buying the parts separately) here...

Next will be a bit of a gumroad break, and back to some free tutorials for a bit. Thanks everyone for your support!
Designing An Epic Starship Part 2: Detailing The Trench

This multi-part tutorial discusses designing an epic starship in Photoshop, starting with the silhouette, then moving on to refining the shape, and ending in detailing. While the final results look dimensional, 90% of the work is actually done in 2d in photoshop, achieving 3d looking results with only the most minor 3d work involved. Part 2 starts with taking one of the ship designs from part 1, coming up with a story on which to base the function of the ship, refining the shape, and then detailing the trench area.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. Raised in Canada on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I began painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into the computer, making 3d graphics and painting in 2d digitally. Professionally, I've created art for animated features, live action, videogames, TV, ride films and album art for companies like Blur Studio, and Pixar, where I currently work as a Technical Director.

Thank you Neil. You've made a great impact on how I will be doing future ships. 
This was a quick render, but if you could take a peek and pls let me know if I'm heading in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. 
Have a great day.
