That one's really nice!
Reminds me of Prometheus ... that's the assymetry I guess.
And those red lights on the bridge are really intimidating!

Excuse me, sorry for asking, but what does "kitbashing" mean?

You take parts from many different ships and stitch them together into a new one.

One more I did quickly today, I thought of it to be a transport.
Edit: Cruiser siced transport since it's smaller than an Atlas.
Some lore already: Homeworld of the crab people is Southpark!

Yay! Finally finished work ... like 2 hours ago xD
Here's what I did since then, hope you like it.
A revision of my transport, much happier with it and the second one is the same just with cargo attached.

Interesting, where do you take parts for kitbashing?

I'm not sure if I should tell anybody what I use for kitbashing.
Isn't it obvious?

Orange looks way better but I need to draw some shadows between those bubbles to make them look better ...

You need to rework that, in terms of light; the light sources are all wrong.  Part of the "fun" of trying to use kitbashed art like that.

Thanks for the advice, I think so too.
Looks flat and that bubble sack is completely wrong.
I haven't been into details with this one yet but some better shadows/lights would be nice indeed.

The light source in SS is on top and slightly in front of the ship, right? I think I've read that somewhere in a guide ...

Edit: I hope my years of experience in painting miniatures will help with getting those shadows right ...
Oh I forgot, do you think the one without cargo looks weird too? Some areas look right but I think it has some lighting issues as well.

Yup.

Getting that corrected is going to be tricky; it'd almost be easier to just do it from scratch, at least if you're really keen on that oil-painted look.

I wish I could something like this from scratch ...

I'm just fooling around with some parts here.

Let's see how far I can get this, got some nice ideas for weapons and decorative animated stuff.
However how do you think is the ship design in general?
Should I continue like this or do you feel alien space crustacians/insects should look different?

The design ideas are great :)  Realizing them is a little hard, if you're not working from scratch.  I probably should do another one of those "speed-paint" tutorials concerning biological stuff; that's actually pretty easy to do if you're reasonably good with airbrush.

Tried a quickie "bio-ship / space-tentacle-monster" from scratch, just fooling around with stuff.  I like the one on the right, myself.  I think it still needs some lights, though; feels a little bit off-scale atm.
