Progress on the map. Fire away on questions. That way I know what I need to put in the legend. This will eventually be available as a poster for purchase.
Perception-Class 2015 WIP 1 by ChroniclesofMan
Perception-Class 2015 WIP 1
Well it has been a while hasn't it?

Consider this my Magnum Opus of Star Trek. The starship I would want to command and the elements I love (and hopefully you love as well).

I've noticed many of you commenting on my older Perception design I did in 2013/2014. The brief redesign that I ended up stopping. Most comments have been positive but quite a few commented on the nacelles and the pylons (their dislike of them) and after much consideration I had to agree. They didn't fit the design.  So a few days ago I opened up the file and decided to tear it apart. I tweaked, I corrected, I edited, I toyed with, and tested the overall design of the ship. I tried to perfect it as best I could. What you see above is my very best (and very much in the early WIP stages.)

I submitted it in this state for a few reasons. Historically, I like to get feedback. What do people like, what do they not like. What elements do they think could use reconsidering. I don't always take your advice (not out of spite, but merely artistic choice), but I do appreciate it all the same.

Right now I am toying with what I want to do with the windows. I'm curious about your comments there as well as the pylon/nacelle redesign and the overall feel of the ship. I hope you love her as much as I do.

For your consideration/comparison, the old design:…

Still in Business - Just a bit Slower by ChroniclesofMan
Still in Business - Just a bit Slower
You'll forgive the delay in work as of late. I just wanted to reassure my friends and fans that I am still working hard. Just fine tuning my artwork and style for CoM 3.0.

Thanks for the patience.

Construction is underway.
Veridian Destroyer by HandofManos
What is there to say: This is a fabulous design. I could see a wonderful square off between a Veridian Destroyer squadron and an Alliance Renown-Class cruiser coming down to a brutal battle of shattered hulks.

The design is brilliant. A fantastic incorporation of the newer elements in COM 3.0.

The ship looks tough and fast.

The vision of the vertical design is perfectly executed with a unique and fun shape that still looks all the bit a warship and a piece of the CoM universe. Great work as always.

I am especially found of the stripy color scheme. The predominant dark is a great look for the ship. I expect other nations will want to purchase her for use in their fleet!

I am a digital artist. This is my hobby, and I love every minute of it.
So its been a while since I posted anything here. Mostly that has been due to my job. The other part of it was that I was nearing completion on the Chronicles of Man 3.0 Website. After spending lots of time looking for a company to build the site last year, I found one who - despite the ambitiousness of the project - took it on full force. With the site 80% done, I was fairly exited. The community elements had been implemented, a majority of the wiki elements had been implemented, and even the user functionality I wanted was almost completely there. The last element was a my inventory page designed to collect a user's posts into a single section (a supplement to the my nations, my corporations, and my organizations) pages. This section was fairly coding heavy as I understood it as each custom post type which requested required coding. However, it was the last piece other than polishing.  

However, in January the company I was using restructured and no longer provides services to support finishing the site. Instead of demanding them commit to the contract and loose support, I took rights to the site instead and now have the fully constructed site for finalizing. It is built in the wordpress environment with plug-ins like buddy press used to handle the user account and social aspect. However, I am not familiar with wordpress enough to finish the site. That is where I need the help.

Does anyone know any good wordpress developers out there who are familiar with buddy press, coding for wordpress, and could finish the site to help CoM 3.0 take off as I had hoped. Please message me if you know!

CoM 3.1 Ship Redesigns and Re-Detail: After Careful Consideration I've decided I am going to work on some major redesigns and re-details of the ships (superseding the work I've already done). So now its your turn to weigh in on the direction CoM could go 

102 deviants said Futuristic Realism - Ships would have a decidedly advanced look and feel with a focus on ultra-high tech look (Think Mass Effect)
46 deviants said Modern Realism - Ships would have a modern feel, with the technology of today morphed to serve the functions and feel of a futuristic space navy. (Think Wing Commander)
11 deviants said Future-Past Realism - Ships would have a retro-ish feel. Think things like wired phones and manual hand valves (Think Galactica)
9 deviants said Modern Cool - Disregard the technical aspect for tough and modern inspired ships. Hulls would be complicated but advanced with a homage to modern ships.
8 deviants said Futuristic Cool - Disregard the technical aspect of the design for the sake of sleek and epic looking ships. Add giant fins and towers with a high tech feel. (Think Tron)
7 deviants said Something Else...Please Comment.
4 deviants said Future-Past Cool - Disregard the technical aspect for rugged and retro designs that border on the steam-punk-ish.

Thanks mate! Hopefully soon I can get back in the swing of things. Lots of ideas flowing, just getting used to having time again.

no problem your work is truly inspiring both the artwork and the story details you produce everything is top quality. Will definitely keep my eye out for any new work and cant wait for the new site to come out.

Hey, where'd your modular frigate go? It had such nice B5/HALO esthetics!
ChroniclesofMan Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I was going down that road and then veered to the left when I saw a sign for a place I like. Sadly one of things about me posting wins is you get to see my creative process and sometimes that means things get axed.
Misacek01 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2014
I see the current paradigm is winning... :) As I said elsewhere, I think the current direction is great. Sure, part of me would want 'Futuristic Cool', but then again you have to throw any detailed rational incorporation of the technology into the broader universe out the airlock if you do that, which would probably only stunt a potentially great area of development for CoM. Besides, eye-candy ships are a dime a dozen out there, and you can always do a few for the heck of it, outside of CoM, if you feel like it (not that I'm assuming you would; though if I had the skills to draw like this... :) ).
