Droyne Scout Courier by Rob-Caswell Droyne Scout Courier by Rob-Caswell
This is another part of the piece of the image that was originally part of my composition with a Type-S. This is the finished version of my earlier posted sketchbook WIP  .... thanks to whoever reminded me that I actually did a finished version!!! ;)

Ink on illustration paper.

Don't Droyne scouts look like a SFB Tholian Pinwheel?  That is three isosceles triangles joined together at the base?

What do the flaps o neither side of the cockpit window do?

Well no one had really imaged a Droyne scout when I did this. Maybe the ship shapes you're talking about came in through the Steve Jackson Games products?

Not sure what "flaps" you're talking about... and I'm not sure I'd even remember ;)

Blinders then.

I can't remember if it was in the Gurps or GDW Alien Module that I saw the Droyne scout ... probably the Gurps book.

Another classic design.

Well... it's classic in age, but this is the only time this ship appeared anywhere. It wasn't really an "established" design.

I thought they nailed it above when someone said it looks like a hair-trimmer ;p

Actually like the pencil doodle better. Just comes off with more detail....

...Could I convince you to render that one like this? Or as a fan art bit could I?

Y'know it's funny but I'd forgotten there was any difference between the two? I agree. I like my sketch concept better. I wonder why I changed it? Or maybe I drew the sketch second? I've made my own artistic-archeology puzzle!! ;)

oh!
I recognize that ship! :)
This is just without the smiley! :D
But I am not going to tell you at what the design is reminding me today!

Oh, c'mon! Lay it on me! A hair comb? A pair of tweezers? A bottle opener???

well...
I see some mixture of my epi-lady and a taser. Which makes sense somehow as they both hurt. The one less the one a bit more :)

you've asked for it, right?
:D

Thanks. I wanted to do something that didn't really evoke human design sensibilities.

That's the Secret of the Ancients! They are actually the trimmers of the galactic beard....

"Galactic beard" ... Love the idea, and wonder what it is composed of? :rofl:

This is a great design, Rob. I seem to gravitate towards designs that look biologically based. This particular ship reminds me of a cuttlefish!

Yeah, those curvy bio-shapes can be fun with starships. I always enjoyed designing Aslan ships for that very reason.

I didn't really do many Aslan... at least not that made it to final print.
