Nice. Do the wings flap? 'Cause that would be badass.

I just have a couple of nitpicks. You have some banding going on in the wings (particularly the larger wings), and the nose cone, to a lesser extent. Also, the nose could be divided or something, for lack of a better word, and made a little more interesting. I couldn't resist doing an edit, but since I've posted a bunch in the last 24 hours without getting consent, I thought I'd check with you before putting it up.

Sorry, made a whole new ship upgrade.
Thought it was worth posting a new post for.

There's the edit. The nose is a bit way  overdone, but as an example, it probably still works.

Spaceships with dragon wings... throw in some robot strippers and you're golden.

I thought there was something a bit "off" on the wings of the middle 'upgrade', in that they look sort of dead, or paralyzed. the position of them also sorta makes the ships look rather off balance. Here i *think* i've given them a little life and tried to give them a bit more of an agressive posture:



I really like the style, color choice and the overall concept though, and i'd like to see where you're going with these.

I dont like the wings on the final form at all. i'm working on editing them now, with an exmplanation as to why.

Thanks for pointing out that I was missing the third wing bone.  :-[

Now this may very well be totally *not* what you're going for, because this is a more (Though not completely, by any stretch.) anatomicaly correct *bat* wing.
it's quick and dirty, iknow. but it gets the point across.
Think about bone structure:



As it stands (the unedited wing) it looks as though the flapping motion would cause a giant 'parachuting' effect because of the largeness of the skin between the outer and middle wingbones - imageint ath in motion; it just seems like it would be uncomfortable for the poor ship :\

Your wing structure is great compared to mine.
I was going for something a little more alien then batty.

Well, if you're going down *that* route it would probably make more sense, to make each bone move independently of the others, like this:
even though there are no 'bones' in this example, it's just to better illustrate the effect it would have.
