Liberator by manmonkee Liberator by manmonkee
 Saw some of the new Blakes 7 reboot designs and the horror of them inspired me to have another go at sketching a Liberator.

I love what you have done with it! The Liberator should always be a design that is out there and pleasing to the eye. I'd like to know what you think of my Liberator revamp as there's some awesome ones around the web?

To be honest I really like your one, I think we've gone the same route, every other one I've seen just buggers about with little bits and pieces and doesn't address the Liberators main problem. It didn't look alien enough, great shape but the elements were just a bit rocket like. I think your ones a little inelegant from the side, my first thought is the main body being a tiny bit longer would give it the sleekness it needs,  it looks just beautiful from the front though , alien and hauntingly mysterious. I think I like your one best of all I've seen, I haven't really been impressed by any of the Liberators I've seen, They've just moved the elements around and played with the wings, Librarian-bots got an interesting design but too industrial for my liking.

Well, I was trying to make it look as though it was formed from giant industrial crystals, so I suppose that was inevitable. I essentially wanted to make it look vicious and like a knife cutting through space.

I really like what you've done with the power-core on this design, and the tracery/circuit design on the pods is lovely. I've always thought it was fun to play up the hint of 'flying castle' in the Liberator and there's a pleasing bit of wizard's tower you've got in the lines.

Nice looking London too. Not quite sure what to think of the Pursuit Ship, but it is a splendid contrast to Liberator, as I always think they should be.

I know what you mean about the castle in space, ,  the Liberator and the Pursuit ships are just tubes (Turrets)  in space, the Liberators a cool tube but a tube all the same, the shapes great but It should look wonderously  alien and freaking crazy. The Pursuit ships a red tube with wings,,,, I suspect Matt Irvine designed it to use a glut of Washing up liquid bottles he had and thats what I think of that,,,, Hence my squarish one, not so much a final idea, more of a F you Mr Irvine :).
