Here we see an ad for Egata Mining.  Egata Mining is one of the largest corporations in Clement Sector and is based at Marlowe (Cascadia 0708).  Their system defense fleet is one of many covered in Gypsy Knights Games'  upcoming Wendy's Guide to the Fleets of Cascadia Subsector which will be released in PDF on March 17.

Art seen here by Bradley Warnes.  The Egata Mining logo was created by Stephanie McAlea.

And don't forget that this weekend is the last weekend for DTRPG's GM's Day Sale.  30% off all of our PDF products this weekend!  http://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse/pub/ ... ghts-Games

Here we see a recruiting poster for the Cascadian Naval Service.  Cascadia has one of most powerful fleets in the Cascadia Subsector of Clement Sector.  Many fear that they are planning an expansionist policy as they build up their navy and send out the Cascadia Colonization Authority out into Dawn Subsector (which they call Lancaster Subsector after Cascadia founding father James Lancaster). 

Lancaster's corporate colors were yellow and green.  Those colors continue to be popular among the people who live in the colony he helped establish.  His love for those colors, his dedication to the failed nation of Cascadia, and his outrageous style continue to live on in the hearts of the Cascadian populace.

The Cascadian Naval Service is only one of several navies covered in Gypsy Knights Games' newest product "Wendy's Guide to the Fleets of Cascadia Subsector".  The newest Wendy's Guide will be available in PDF on March 17.

Here we see the CNS Samuel Eliot Morrison, an Alfred Thayer Mahan-class Heavy Destroyer, approaching the gas giant Pioltello in the Bicocca system (Dawn 0404).  The Cascadian Navy occasionally sends elements of the fleet into the Dawn Subsector (which they refer to as the Lancaster Subsector).

The Alfred Thayer Mahan-class is covered in Wendy's Guide to the Fleets of Cascadia Subsector which will be released in PDF on March 17.  Art seen here by Ian Stead. 

Eschewing the traditional ship classifications has long been a hallmark of the Cascadian Naval Service so it is no surprise that the heaviest warships of the fleet are classified as heavy destroyers rather than a light cruiser.

The Alfred Thayer Mahan-class design departs somewhat from the light cruiser role of providing a heavy hitting anchor to the destroyers that form the squadron it is flagship to. Early design specifications released to this organization and to the general public generated spirited discussion in regards to why the Cascadian Navy, normally focused on lighter and more tactically flexible warships, had embarked on a program to construct larger warships.

The Alfred Thayer Mahan has a one thousand eight hundred displacement tonne standard hull, which though not designed for planetary landings, can do so if required. Fuel scoops and fuel purifiers are included to allow for scooping fuel from gas giants, though again it is unlikely this would ever be a routine operation.

The heavy destroyer’s dorsal and ventral mounted main armament consists of six fifty tonne fusion gun bays and two fifty tonne railgun bays divided evenly. Each of the bay turrets can retract into their bay under an armored cover.

Nice illustration. What software was used to render it?

I have to be honest and say that I have no idea. The pictures in the thread were done by three different artists who do work for our company (Stephanie McAlea, Ian Stead, and Bradley Warnes). I have the feeling that they all use different methods.

No problem. And to be specific, I was referring to the most recent image. I like the way the starship image is kind of in between the look of a technical drawing illustration and an attempt at photorealism.

That's one by Ian Stead, if that helps at all.
