Leaving Iscandar by Aeires Leaving Iscandar by Aeires
Space ship Yamato from the Star Blazers series. Long before there was Akira, and even before Robotech and Macross there was Star Blazers [link] . The first episode was based off the movie Space Battleship Yamato which was received so well it spawned a television series. The movies plot was in the future one of earths enemies had radiation bombed the planet from deep space. The Yamato was sent on a rescue mission to Iscandar to retrieve the Cosmo DNA, a cure for the radiation. They had to travel hundreds of light years and back in a years time before the earth had become radiated beyond recovery. Using a newly developed Wave Motion Engine, they could jump across vast distances but the engine required tremendous power so they had to use it sparingly. The output of the engine could also be used to fire the Wave Motion Cannon, seen at the front of the ship. A weapon of tremendous power, it had the ability to destroy small moons.

First time trying this type of artwork so there is a lot of learning and experience needed but I'm happy with the results.

I love space battleship Yamato! I didn't like the English dub (starblazers) all that much becuse they cut so much out of the original show and changed the entire feel of it. Anyway love the picture, good job :)

It was one of my all time favorite shows when I was a kid. Rumor has it that they were pondering a live action remake, now that would be worth paying 8 bucks a ticket just to see how well they did on it. I think you did great on this one. Love that ship.

That would be cool, especially with todays fill technology. I watched this all the time when I was a kid, even own the original japanese movie (way better). Also a big fan of Captain Herlock, the ship influence sucks me in every time.
