BlizzardFest Challenge -- Terran Raven

Hi there, I am new here but when I saw, there is a Blizzard Art Challenge, I immediately had to start a thread.
I am super excited and would love to start away right now, so I hope I will get some sleep tonight.^^

The Terran Raven was the first thing that came into my mind and I think one should never get stuck on his very first idea.
But who cares, it's one of my all time favorite spaceship designs on one hand, and on the other I love that you never see the pilot's face in the game, which in combination with his robot voice adds some real mystery to that character -- well at least it does for me.
So maybe it could really be interesting to design a mischievous and cunning pilot, who does not fear fidgety asteroid fields and tricky maneuvers in his scary awesome raven. I mean, if I get it done well enough, it could become the millennium falcon on crack (and without the dog).

Okay, good night everyone and have fun!

Day one: Infection

Today at work I was thinking about my Raven pilot and his story background.

My first idea was having him as one of Mira Han's mercenaries who got abandoned by the troops during a Zerg attack and now is lost in space. Everyone thinks he is dead.
My second idea was that he could be a killer chasing the woman he loves through time and space. She is his ~client~ at the same time. Pretty cheesy, ha?
My girlfriend then came up with idea I immediately fell in love with: the Raven is infested. I think that is going to be it! Still got to figure out details..

I did some sketches today to get familiar with the basic design of the Raven. I realized that the ship contains shapes I never use for my own designs...

Great start, I think the infested idea is nice as you can get some nice contrast between the organic and the hardsurfaces. ^__^
