a photo manipulation of this image, a screencap from the video game “Ace Combat: The Belkan War”. This is probably my all time favourite video game.
A tilt-rotor aircraft ive been modeling over the past few weeks. this video shows the ailerons and flaps i just recently added.
Concept designs for a Star Trek hat.
After cosplaying in a Star Trek Voyager style costume, as well as watching a sizable amount of star trek, i began wondering about the lack of hats ever seen in the series. Obviously this was a design choice by the production crew, but i noticed after a while that Starfleet didn’t seem to have almost every conceivable uniform variant possible except for a decent hat (aside from the dress variants seen in the new movies Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013).
After a quick image search on modern military hats, i settled on this design as a simple and practical basis. in Photoshop i have added a coloured stripe around the crown of the hat. the black main colour of the hats, as well as their coloured crowns i believe would suit most 24th century era uniforms nicely, perhaps with the exception of the First Contact uniforms. the gold pin on the hat would have to be modified to suit the rank system, but i think it adds definition, and could house a locater or backup communicator for the personel.
I will probably try making one of these hats to suit my existing cosplay, but i thought this might be a cool design for anyone interested.
Finalized versions of each shirt design. They are available now from Redbubble.
The gradient form the first was removed because it may not turn out well when printed. the second image was adjusted slightly to be less jagged.
A T-shirt design i made for redbubble. Used various references for fonts and images. the first one is the final design, but i though the other two were good iterations on the typographic idea.
the grey background would be transparent in the final export so that the t-shirts can be different colours. so long as the chosen shirt colour is dark then the designs function.

Some sketches ive done up over the past few weeks. I’m most proud of how the various fighter jets came out, even though they were from reference. After scanning them i fiddled with the hue/saturation a little to make them look a bit nicer.
Battlefield 4 made me aware of many more 5th generation fighter jets that are further into production than i knew. there is the F-22 Raptor which is already well into service. we also have the Sukhoi PAK FA prototype T-50 (which i must say looks fabulous and also, from the front on, rather similar to the ADFX-01 Morgan from Ace Combat). and then the rather boxy but still nice looking Chengdu J-20.
I think ive done it, hows this? i dont know how to get them to link
People are starting to tag me in stuff, and since both my URLs are pretty unsearchable (Gold-space jsut brings up shit about gold and Chrome-local stuff about Google Chrome), henceforth i will be tracking the tag “goldie199”
Its my most common gamer ID, so if you want me to see anything pop that into the tags
