Bridge Series I.S.S. Phantasm

Bridge Series I.S.S. Phantasm
SubmitterObsidianMore Photos from Obsidian   CategoryOriginal Characters    Last Update2018/7/4 19:02
Hits95  Comments4    
I did a tone of custom work from screen displays to architecture I even had to create some meshes. Let me know what you think and before you ask...Star trek is always one of my main influences but beyond that ring behind the Captain's chair I used nothing from Star Trek in creating this bridge. I did use some Trek Wannabe stuff though LOL

The Phantasm is a unique prototype ship designed and built by reverse engineering the original SS Lillun A. As such Obsidian was to be asked to test it along with his 4th dimensional interior components. As you may or may not have noticed it is incredibly easy to attach the 4D components to the various ships Obsidian has used. I have therefore decided to explain how these features work along with details about the new ship.

The 4D compartments have a self contained power grid separate from the rest of the ship they are attached to. The transport systems within use magic rather than technology to send and retrieve items and personnel. The internal area of the 4D compartments vary in size but the following are know to be contained inside. Obsidian's personal quarters, starting with The SS Lillun-B the quarters are now a part of the 4D interior and need to be anchored to an exterior wall and door. typically the exterior dimensions need to match the interior dimensions the idea behind this design is to keep from having to redecorate quarters. Cargo bay: The Cargo Bay within the 4D space contains all of Obsidian's personal vehicles and extra equipment as well as his personal armory.  Vault: There is also a Vault that contains older armors and additional "Mission Specific" accessories .
The I.S.S. Phantasm is a Sathari warship prototype. Since Obsidian is the single most active official in the Sathari Empire it was decided that he would test it and it's features. It was a matter of coincidence that the ship would become available after the loss of The  SS LillunB.

The Phantasm boasts a wraparound view screen and strategy table for combat planning and strategic coordinating. This a Astral Cartography setup wherein the captain can view an entire system and map out long range travel as well as see troop movements and ppositions

Weapon Systems;
In addition to standard ship to ship weaponry (360 degree Plasma/Ion emitters, and standard torpedoes x200,) as well as various probes and survey equipment. The I.S.S. Phantasm boasts the following unique armaments:

Twin port and Starboard 360 degree rotating, Phase modified, variable frequency cannons.
These dual barreled cannons are capable of bypassing a ship's shields completely and harming only the crew within. Against an opponent with Phased shielding they can penetrate the shield within 3 shots by tuning into the shield frequency.
Ant-Matter FTL Torpedoes: Standard compliment is 100 however, with the addition of Obsidian's 4D Compartments the payload is increased to an ungodly 2,100 warheads.
Combat drones: The Phantasm is equipped with 14 autonomous combat drones each with an advanced combat AI. The drones are equipped with a series of high yield Plasma cannons and 2 Low Yield Anti-matter warheads each. They have warp capability up to a maximum speed of Lx10 to the tenth power. However their flight time is limited to a maximum of one hour under full use at maximum speed

Main CannonThe greatest weapon aboard the Phantasm and located on its Keel (Belly of the ship), is it's main cannon. Designed as an anti-planet weapon it has a range of one half light year and fires using a Soliton wave beam, allowing the beam itself to travel faster than light speeds. The farther the target is the the more the beam accelerates to it's target. However at just beyond a half light year the beam simply decays rapidly and dissipates. The reason for this is yet unknown.  The damage from the carrier wave is exponentially added to the type of energy it conveys  and can become powerful enough to split a planet in half as in the case of an anti-proton beam.
In this specific case it works as an amplifier with regards to the released energy at impact.

The beam itself can fire any standard energy types and is equipped to fire Plasma, Ion, OOP (Out of Phase), Proton, Anti-Proton, and Disruption. It is feasible to use this  as an interplanetary transporter by coupling it with an EMT transmitter.
The main cannon is proposed for installation in the former planet smasher of the old Empire.

Trinity-Drive: Like the Wraith fighter the Phantasm boasts 3 drive engines all powered from one core: Each drive is a more extreme version of one another.

Warp drives warp space allowing the ship to travel through ripples of distorted space making it appear to move faster than light.
Hyper-drive literally creates a miniature worm hole for the ship to travel through and is faster  than the best warp drives available  although it actually pulls the ship into the 4th dimension.
Space fold drive: creates a micro-thin portal between any two points in the ENTIRE UNIVERSE, although one must have the Galactic Rotation coordinates for both including universe drift coordinates. The farther away the two points are the longer the calculations take even with the  supercomputers aboard the most advanced ships.

The magical protections aboard the Lillun have NOT been included as the magics involved seem to be beyond those of mortals  with respect to area of effect, and intensity and have been substituted with inferior mortal magic. The spells include Lie detection, Anti-Teleport, Anti-Invisibility, Pacify, and Hold Fast. for the bridge alone. the various magical inscriptions are written in nano-script and repeated on every wall and plate of the ship. It is important to note that each member of the crew must undergo a "Tuning" ritual to be rendered immune to these spell effects.

It is rare that I make scenery images.  I'm usually buried in characters and what not, but every now and then I reach a point where I make significant breakthroughs. Breakthroughs which take my artistic ability to the next level...this image is one such breakthrough as I couldn't myself,  tell where the 3d ended and the backdrop began. Hopefully you won't either as the techniques I am now perfecting take my comics and my art in general to a whole new level of quality...the changes have been so few but they are significant. This forest is a perfect example. I hope you like it  as much I do and enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed creating it

Ever get the feeling you're being watched? Did you know that scientists believe that the ability is a type of energy? It radiates through solid objects like car windows...I mean, have you ever pulled up to a light and looked over to see someone looking at you? Yeah...what if you wore a suit of armor that absorbs psychic/psionic energy...you might very well lose a powerful instinctive tool...as Obsidian has. There's a reason he's always scanning...he knows this ability is impaired in his armor.Although he's also quite paranoid so he always assumes he's being watched.

Thought an On Demand menu for the format might work...
I thought I was done with these but Ozzy's nitpick on my last one ended up providing inspiration for another. So I went in the other direction this time and rather than making it about the comics on which the media was based, I focused on the media this time (TV toons) rather than the comics from which they were derived. Thanks Ozzy!

Another little idea that turned into an epic voyage of trial and error. To anyone considering drawing the interior of Shado's Moonbase control room, my advice is: don't!

(For those too young or too old to remember, UFO was a 1970's Gerry Anderson live-action TV series.

I'm sure I could have filled this up with just the Marvel movies but I wanted to include others as well. My credits are spread pretty randomly in the Influence Map so I've included a list below more specific to who did each comic although that's a little dicey too as in some instances, I've credited the character's creators while in others, I've credited those whose story got adapted into the films. Not all of these films were great but the comics were and that's what I'm paying tribute to.

So yesterday some guy at Facebook asked a question that made me think of my sci-fi books and that lead me to make an Influence Map with some of the sci-fi books that in some way influenced me.

I also wanted to keep fox-orion original directives so I followed his rule to fill the map.

Keep in mind that the ones presented are NOT all and are not presented in any special order:

The Star Beast by Robert A. Heinlein (1954) - This one is here not only to represent the work of Heinlein but also because it remains to this day among my top 3 books from this author, that I am a huge fan of.

The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge (1981) - I love this author. Her work is among my favourite, this one specially with its sequel The Summer Queen. If you never read any sci-fi before, try this books.

Titan by John Varley (1980) - One of my favourite authors, almost at the level of Heinlein in my book, although diferent styles and writing. And Titan is easily one of his top 3 books.

Dreamsnake by Vonda McIntyre (1979) - I HATE SNAKES! That's a fact, but reading this book almost made me want to have a pet snake... and that says it all.

Brightness Reef by David Brin (1996) - David Brin wrote some of the best books I have in my library. And I could easily choose other book to represent his work here but the Uplift Universe is his top work for me.

The Man in the Maze by Robert Silverberg (1968) - Silverberg is my second favourite sci-fi author and this book is among my top 3 from him.

Azazel by Isaac Azimov (1988) - Azimov is not in my top 3 sci-fi authors but I love his work none the less and Azazel is a funny set of short stories that I can read over and over again and always make me smile. But that might also be because of my dark sense of humor.

The Gameplayers of Zan by M. A. Foster (1977) - This book was only the second sci-fi book I ever read. I was 12 years old at the time and never forgot the how it made me feel.

Dinosaur Planet by  Anne McCaffrey (1978) - I'm a big fan of dinosaur stories... and if you mix some sci-fi along, I'm hooked. Not to mention that I never read a book from Anne McCaffrey I didn't liked.

A Deepness in the Sky by Vernor Vinge (1999)  - When I first read this book I almost gave up... Until I found A Fire Upon the Deep by the same author and gave it a chance. Worth it.

Lensman Series by E.E. "Doc" Smith (1934 - 1948) - The first sci-fi book I ever read was Lord Tedric. It was a gift from my godmother and that ignited my love for sci-fi.
To this days, I still think the Green Lantern Corp was based on the Lensman series by E.E. "Doc" Smith. Change my mind.

Marune: Alastor 933 by Jack Vance (1975) - Jack Vance wrote some great sci-fi stories that I read often but this one is still the one I like best.

Solaris by Stanisław Lem (1961) - When I first found the books from Stanislaw Lem, I thought it was more of the same sci-fi stories I was used to read from british and american authors. Big Mistake!

This challenge is harder than it looks.

I tried not to include the same as I did last time but it was unavoidable and some of them lurked their way into this Influence Map as well.    

Anyways, since my free time to participate is almost none and I really want to make at least one map, I tried to include a wide range of influences.

Still doesn't even cover 1% of them.

Decided to use basic format, but progressive influences, and a wink to Hanna Barbera, who helped shape my sometimes warped sense of humor.
First row is the TV cartoon influences that inspired  my love of comics and Super Heroes.
Second shows the major comics, and specific issues that I have that influenced my original drawing and theme styling.
Third row depicts the major artists that influenced my design style, and
Last row shows my all time favorite artist for humor and exaggerated realism Norman Rockwell, also seen in the background image.
As well as a nod to the two artists that drew my attention to HeroMorph in the first place, and whose work I tried to duplicate when I first began manipulating.  Many others here have helped me develop since then, too, which is why I keep checking in to see what greatness shows up here daily!

I just decided to throw in my major influences in both life and my art...

The major influences start with Walter Elias Disney, Jim Henson, and Stan Lee. I've lived my life through a lot of their inspiration.

Todd Mcfarlane and John Byrne got me interested in drawing and art.

Then a few others that have inspired me over my many years.

Emerson Davis was once an ordinary man, and archaeologist by profession and a veteran soldier he was content to live his life in pursuit of ancient Egyptian ruins.  He was utterly fascinated by the beings of the Egyptian pantheon and after defending a dig site which was later discovered to be a former temple of the goddess Bast, he was approached by the Goddess Herself...in person no less.  He was offered to opportunity to learn about the Egyptian gods firsthand as Bast's Scion. The offer was too good to turn down so he accepted. Bast has bestowed him great powers and the name "The Great Mau" the cat king.  Mau possesses abilities  inherent to all cats, Strength, Agility, Night vision, enhanced senses, and the ability to communicate with and command cats.  Mau's armor is divine in nature and repairs itself each sunrise.  Mau goes where Bast commands and defends her (and the other god's of Egypt when asked) temples on whatever world they may be. Mau has a few loyal followers on every world where cats exist even on Katara, and Heigara...he Cannot command sentient cats but he can "Enthrall" them.  Mau dares not abuse his power as what the gods give they can surely take away.  Mau is a deadly hand to hand fighter and his claws are considered highly magical for purposes of what they can affect.  Mau has many weapons at his disposal both convention and not-so-conventional.  He is familiar with P.R.I.D.E. and their leader Panterra and is not impressed with man's genetic dabbling, although secretly he is envious of the power they possess as it, to some degree, dwarfs his own.  he is friendly towards them enough so that there is no ill will. Panterra and the others have a great respect for both Mau and bast though they bend their knee to neither.

I figured this one would be an easy one to do and it was but once again, I feel like I've left out more than I've included! A couple of crossover artists here: Eisner started Spirit in the newspapers and later went to comics while Gil Kane started in comics before doing Star Hawks. Some of these others were big influences on some great comic artists, like Raymond's influence on Al Williamson, Foster's on Frank Frazetta and Caniff's on Jim Aparo.

So I decided to try something a little different this time around. Rather than using the template, I decided to break the mold and step out from the grid. I focused on a single major influence on me for this influence map.
Sure, Jack Kirby probably would have been the obvious choice, the artistic giant who practically built the house of Marvel single handedly. But instead, I went with Steve Ditko, focusing on some of the characters he had a hand in creating. I always thought Ditko was remarkably unique and innovative in his comics style. Everybody was trying to be Kirby back in the 60's but nobody could even figure out how to imitate Ditko. So in the spirit of Ditko, I tried a quirkier approach here
It's all about Ditko heroes and art in my influence map:
Top: Spider-man, Blue Beetle, Dr. Strange
Middle: The Question, Captain Atom, The Creeper, Mr. A
(Ditko Self Portrait)
Bottom: Shade the Changing Man, Stalker, Squirrel Girl.
(Background from Dr. Strange)
There's plenty of other oddball Ditko characters like the Hawk and the Dove, Destructor, Speedball, Static, Killjoy and the Mocker but I just didn't have room for all of them!
There is one Ditko design that is an absolute classic that most of you are very familiar with but didn't know it was his. Although Jack Kirby was the creator of Iron Man, that original suit was big and bulky. Iron Man's classic red and gold suit that remained largely unchanged for years... yup, Ditko did that too.
