A thread in which I turn warships into anime girls
Using magical tools called hands and my magic wand called "pen", I have decided to turn space ships into cute anime girls, Kantai Collection style.

So far I've only drawn up Orion-tan. Next up is Lucifer-chan.



(This one ended slipper than usual, due to me drawing part of it on a train and part of it in a completely sleep deprived state. I'll try to make the next ones look better)

Re: A thread in which I turn warships into anime girls
The perspective is slopply executed , and as result the proportions seem all wrong.
Your use of shading is crude, so that in effect it exaggerates the flat nature of the image rather than generate an illusion of depth. /Exaggeration for effect

... but what do I know? - Keep at it and we'll see where you arrive eventually. :yes:

Once I finish big Lucy and the Hatsheput, I could look into humanising some strikecraft too. Some ships like Ursa or Manticore make for some easy designs.

It'd be more interesting to do those with "the male form", I think

Certainly it would provide a look beyond the pure exercise of skill...

Basically it's a thread where I post humanised versions of various FS2 warships. Something along the lines of Kantai Collection (a Japanese game where old WW2 warships are resurrected as anime girls). The girl in the OP is literally just the Orion if the Orion were an anime girl instead of the warship. There are some similarities visible between the ship and the person (namely the carrier deck she's carrying on her arm, and the turret.)

That sounds like a show that's particular popular in Korea and China. :drevil:

Enioch introduced me to this concept in his thread where he played a warship game, and spiced it up with narrative fiction and pictures of, among other things, anime girls representing battleships. Here:

http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=92847.0

As for the thread itself though, while I have nothing against the concept, I don't think it really fits Freespace, because the ships, at least the Terran ones, are named after some of this lot:



Figures from Greek mythology. And the Vasudans are Egyptian equivalents. Not sure about Shivans. It seems if you were going to do this it would be better to meld ship design and the figure they were named after.

Re: A thread in which I turn warships into anime girls
Yesssss..... but I do intend to keep the mythology out of this, more or less, and focus on purely humanising the ship design itself instead, as is done in Kantai Collection, which I based this thread idea off of. At the end of the day, it's anime girls, I don't think everything needs to be super accurate anyways.

(and do remember the description of the arts & talents board, it doesn't have to fully be FS related)

Well most of the FS ships have mythological names. But most of them have been interpreted in countless ways (just think about Orion), so a FS-Anime original thing would be better IMO.
