Planetary Test Render
This is for my upcoming project. I needed to have a planet as a render for a cover image, and it took me a few days to get the right planetary surface texture get output, and then I had to spend some more time building the scene properly in Blender. Got to learn a few new tricks like Fresnel coloring, and using nodes for various material processes (which was also pretty interesting and is a welcome additional tool in the kit).

Hunter Wilson
Second in a chain of images done in support of my deWulf Universe! Done by the wonderful  blu3dawn14.deviantart.com/, this picture features Hunter (Analagous to Captain) Wilson, of the dWS Hauptmann.

We have him in two seperate uniform styles as seen in the deWulf navy. Common across both uniforms are the Navy badge on the left shoulder, and his unit badge on the right shoulder. Nametag is always found on the left breast, and on the light dress suit he has his main qualification badges on his right breast. The two qualification badges are for Navigation and Laser Gunnery respectively. The blue flashing and highlighting on his worksuit and skinsuit indicate his status as part of the command crew.

The dWS Hauptmann is the lead class of a new plasma cannon armed destroyer, and as such specializations for her weapons have not yet been worked out (as of the time of this photo). Hunter Wilson thus carried over his Laser Gunnery badge when he was promoted from Junior Hunter (XO) of the dWS Liese Meitner, a Hawking-Class Light Cruiser. 


On the left is the light dress uniform, a rather classical suit and tie. This uniform is often seen at dress occasions and general usage planetside. This uniform is NOT recommended for use aboard ship or station due to its multiple loose bits of clothing and complete inability to protect against vaccum. Even so, most Hunters tend to wear it as the bridge is usually one of the last compartments on the ship to lose pressure, and the loss of the bridge is generally followed quickly afterwards by the loss of the ship. 

To the right is the skinsuit. This is a suit designed for short to middling length work in vaccum. These suits are produced to a rough template, but are usually custom-fit to make them comfortable for longer term use. Fully sealed from neck downwards, most crewmembers take a while to get used to how their tails have to be curled in to a pouch in the lower back. Early experiments in having a "third leg" for the tail proved to be one of those good ideas that didn't quite work, as fitting a tail backwards into the suit took far too long and always proved to be unwieldy. The helmet includes a built in communications system and resperator. Storage vacoules in the suit store waste and provide an hour of air independent of hookups to other systems. The helmet also has a built in HUD that can interface with most tools, making repairs and maintenence easier by relaying the readouts in a clear, easy to read format. A Hunter's suit contains additional command links, allowing functional (if basic) command of the ship even with the failure of the preferred command consoles. This photo also shows the Extended Endurance pack. Attached to the back, the EE pack provides additional life and power support, dramatically extending the survability of the wearer.

Engineer Linden
First in a chain of images done in support of my deWulf Universe! Done by the wonderful  blu3dawn14.deviantart.com/, this picture features Able Spaceman (rank name provisional) Linden, of the dWS Hauptmann.

We have him in three seperate uniform styles as seen in the deWulf navy. Common across all three uniforms are the Navy badge on the left shoulder, and his unit badge on the right shoulder. Nametag is always found on the left breast, and on the light dress and worksuit he has his main qualification badges on his right breast. The three qualification badges are for Electrical Engineering, Communication Systems, and Mechanical Engineering respectively. The purple flashing and highlighting on his worksuit and skinsuit indicate his status as part of the engineering crew.

On the left is the light dress uniform, a rather classical suit and tie. This uniform is often seen at dress occasions and general usage planetside. This uniform is NOT recommended for use aboard ship or station due to its multiple loose bits of clothing and complete inability to protect against vaccum.

In the center is the worksuit, standard uniform while in space. It is a much more form fitting bit of clothing, and indicates his department (purple for engineering), as well as still retaining his certification badges. In an emergency, engineer Linden can put on "boots and bubble", a generic set of mittens that seal at the wrists, footcovers that seal at the ankle, and an unwieldy bubble helmet that seals down at the neck (the tail gets pinched at the base to try and protect the wearer). While this provides SOME protection against vaccum, it's intended only to protect the wearer long enough to get to pressurized compartments. 

Finally, to the right is the skinsuit. This is a suit designed for short to middling length work in vaccum. These suits are produced to a rough template, but are usually custom-fit to make them comfortable for longer term use. Fully sealed from neck downwards, most crewmembers take a while to get used to how their tails have to be curled in to a pouch in the lower back. Early experiments in having a "third leg" for the tail proved to be one of those good ideas that didn't quite work, as fitting a tail backwards into the suit took far too long and always proved to be unwieldy.

Just updating the journal on the front page. It's been a long while, but I'm working to get things back up and running. More to follow soon! (I hope!)

Honestly, I think you do better Honor Harrington covers than David Mattingly. His are good, and the've gotten better, but I think yours are "Right". They just somehow feel Better. Both more that they make reference to the characters and events, and somehow have the right weight to them all. If I could, i'd happily reprint my covers and replace them with yours :D

I just wish you got to do the two from the older David Weber Stars at War omnibus release from a few years back :D
