Okay i didn't just slap a symmetrical theme this time (i kinda did). The base was a Vigilance.

Edit: i erased two of my previous posts because they aren't that good.

Who needs Torpedoes when you can have a Torpedrone?

Introducing the New-and-improvised [Insert Luddic Path Name]! Instead of having Fighters to attack enemies with guns, this one destroys them by ramming headfirst into their hulls, resulting in an explosive, well, Explosion!

Generally yes, unless you want to include a missile (such as a torpedo) that would be visible until fired. General guns are typically drawn in, but they don't have to be. They probably shouldn't be drawn in if they are turrets- though this can be tricky to do depending on the weapon sprite size vs the fighter sprite size. Sometimes things have to be "implied underneath", etc.

Alright, thank you.

An ancient Terran design, this design is limited by the of technology of it's time. With the age of space, however, reaching Mach 6 is no longer a dream.

This is based on the Prototype SR-72 (Blackbird's successor), which sadly, hasn't came to fruition.

I like that one. It has a good visual definition of the overall superstructure and layers. I also like the turret layout and shape. Very aesthetically pleasing to me. One confusing thing that stands out, imo, is the armor plates along the edges at the front portion. They seem visually higher than the layer the turret emplacements are set on. A minor thing though.

Overall good job. :)

Thanks! it was my very first drawn-from-scratch ship. I guess the idea was that the armor plates are supposed to be covering the hull, and not the turrets themselves. I'm kinda confused as to how the shading should work. I think it might be best if i visualize the 3D version first.
