Starfury by steve-burg Starfury by steve-burg
Wow! This really is "Ancient History" :lol: !!!

These are some concept sketches that I did for a television series - "Babylon 5" - in the early 1990s. I worked very closely with my friend Ron Thornton, who crafted the final version of the ship in 3D.

They show some of the development process for a featured "space fighter" design. The top drawing shows an early version, while the final approved sketch is shown at the bottom.

These drawings were done with Prismacolor pencil on a pad of 9" x 12" drafting vellum.

At that time, traditional drawings like this were really the only means available for doing concept art. I continue to make daily use of those skills, although now it is more for my own design process and is not usually presented to clients.

Some people have expressed an interest in seeing some of this work, so here it is ;)
