You do great work!  But by and long it does seem you have taken DA on by storm with your Size Comparison - Sci Fi Spaceship poster.   Amazing work and a very valuable reference.  As I mentioned in that thread, I am surprised no one thought of doing this on a scale like this before.

BTW, I am German too, but born here in the U.S.  So how are things going over in Deutschland?

We're the island of the lucky ones in a sea of storms, that's how it is right now. There's a number of wars around the corner, but so far nothing spilled over; there's economical upheaval and crisis in Europe, but elsewhere; there's even been substantial wage increases in recent years. Add to that the stabilit of a somewhat dull government (Merkel quite probably has another term ahead, mabe two), and there's not even a viable populist rightist party like Front National, FPÖ or Anel - the only contender, the AfD (Alternative for Germany) is disintegrating, in fact (over support of dubious street protests against migrants).

Nothing indicates this will go on forever (in fact, there's a host of possible catastrophes justa round the corner), but so far, the major draw of this country these days is the weather, which is a lot like the Pacific Northwest, only a bit gloomier.

As for the chart, I was baffled nobody had done this before, either. There's of course Jeff Russel's Starship dimensions, and Dan Carlson's chart - both of them helped me a lot and inspired me to do this - but neither is quite as comprehensive. Actually, this chart started out as me doodling and adding some Warhammer and Star Wars ships to Dan Carlsson's chart, and then kinda grew from there (Halo was next, then Macross aka Robotech, then ... well, it kinda expanded).

Sorry to hear that Germany has been having it's troubles as well.   As you probably know, our economy has not been doing so hot as well.  The trouble is that our country is just farming out too much of the work we normally did here over to China.   Manufacturing had been seeing all time lows as the government here want to shut down any building with a smoke stack.   For the person that wants to create with their hands, it has been tough to make a living here.   What further drives us down is how the medical system is handled here.   Doctors and medical institutions take advantage of insurance companies creating ridiculously high bills.  In the end people still end up paying a good portion of the bill, kind of defeats having insurance in the first place.  This puts people here further in debt, mainly those with a fixed income such as the elderly.  So the doctors and medical facilities here stay rich and everyone else is put in the poor house.  The thing the government really needs to do here in the US is to put a cap on how much doctors can make for starters.   I can go on and on about other issues we have here in the U.S. but I don't want to bore you to death.

Getting back to the interesting stuff, the artwork here on DA:

I saw your chart logging on the other day and I was like, WOW!  The sci-fi world sure needs an information source like this.   It reminded me of the detailed drawings I have seen in the DK publishings.

Yes, I have seen the Warhammer and Star Wars charts you have done, but your latest creation is obviously an 'enhancement' to say the least, covering ships from many stories.    Yes, I have seen the Halo and Mass Effects ships too.  I didn't find the Odyssey nor the ships from Firefly, but I really didn't have a chance to look over the whole thing either.   I found the ships from Farscape.   So all in all your comprehensive ship collection is now becoming and Easter egg hunt.

The Lifeforce alien spaceship is another must to add:

Also, I didn't see the semi circular ships that were in Alien and Prometheus.   Whether or not they will make it into the 'Large Ship Edition' or not would remain to be seen I guess, (and entirely up to you).   But it sure seems that you have garnered quite a bit of interest in your project.

Anyway, you have done a great job with the first one and I can't wait to see the next one you have in the works.  Amazing stuff and really nicely done!

Elite: Dangerous is very new, but sure, I'll try and find images.

Hi wow, that would be great if you can!

I had a quick check on Google and looks like there are quite a few images on there. I also have access to the game so can always get screenshots of the ships directly from the game if that helps?

If I give you an idea for a race or character. Would you do a idea of them for me? I don't care who sees them but I do need a artist rendition of what someone might think they would look like and yours is the coolest so far.

Well, I can try, but I don't have that much time, so it can be a very long wait. Finally got soem time on my hands again, though.
