  • About me

    What do I do?
    I build sci-fi projects. More specifically, I specialize in warships.



    I'm proud to say all of my spaceships have full interiors and (excessive) exterior detail. I've also built ground vehicles and I dabble in writing lore for my CC faction. In the future, I'll be creating terrain, structures, artwork, and animations. If you want to see my style, check out my posts!

    Commissions
    I do paid commissions for spaceships, vehicles, stations, structures, and Minecraft renders. If you want to make a commission, PM me to start the process.

    You can give me any amount of sources, references, or requirements to follow. I have a commission which is just a replica of a ship from a video game but in my materials, and I have upcoming commissions with a vague sketch and a length. I will endeavour to match any limits, including time deadlines, that you ask.

    At any point you can request changes or suggestions for the next step. Minor changes won't add to cost - major revisions, especially for work in previous stages, will increase the price, although not drastically. Depending on the size of the project I may wait at a stage - on larger builds, I will seek explicit approval before moving on so I don't need to go back and change a lot once the client finally comes online to see the work. Smaller builds I may just save each stage and continue, since it is easier to make late changes.

    You can, of course, cancel at any time. Payment is done after the build is finished, not before, so there is no danger of paying for something you never get or don't want. I look over the project requirements before starting and come up with what I feel is a reasonable price, depending on the complexity, size, and requested detail of the project. Once the build has been finished, you are allowed to propose a different price depending on your satisfaction. If I took far longer than a deadline or the build lacks the quality I have shown myself capable of, you can ask for a lower price; conversely, if I went above and beyond in interpreting your commission in a timely fashion, or you are feeling generous, you can pay a bit more. I try to be reasonable and err on the cheap side for my prices, especially if their are monetary constraints.

    If you're feeling generous, leave a donation- it'll help me release higher quality material, and faster.

      So, varying degrees of bad and good news. Firstly, I was unable to complete all of the revisions I wanted - this is mostly because of finals, which took over my schedule. Apologies for that. Restoring my old projects will become an ongoing endeavour throughout February and March if necessary.

      The next bit of news is a bit more unfortunate. During routine updates on my main computer, something occured and broke the system. I went through extensive troubleshooting, and after much work was reluctantly forced to perform a factory reset. This means I will need to spend the next week reinstalling apps and recovering what I can. Any plans for next month are being put on hiatus. I'll likely have updates as soon as possible.

      Very fortunately, I have backups of much of my work on multiple USBs and on the cloud. This means a good portion of my work isn't lost, but there were some major builds which very likely were destroyed. I still need to carefully go through everything to find out what exactly I have lost, but I'm happy it isn't everything. Hopefully, I can continue my work in short order. If not, you'll hear from me the moment I learn of further complications.

      I got most of my stuff, as far as I can tell. The only major loss was, ironically, something I was thinking of starting over. Not like this, but it works.

      Oh that sucks! A month or so ago I lost my usb drive with all my future projects on it. Hopefully you can recover most or all of your stuff.

      So, time for a wave of updates. This month will follow a more informal schedule, as I have finals. If you missed the announcement, this month will be updates to old content - I'm finally doing the descriptions for my older things, as well as bringing the builds to what I deem an acceptable standard in detail. The upload schedule tab on the upcoming projects widget shows what I am updating, and once projects have been updated they will be marked in this tab. I'd suggest checking the tab every week or so, since some of the projects have changes which I don't think are enough to actually bump the project up. This means that some of the things won't show a notification when they are changed, so consulting the schedule will help catch when things change.

      A few other random things: there is now a scale chart on my channel page showing all of the capital ships I've built, which I'd suggest checking out; I plan on updating the chart every month, and once the next wave of uploads rolls around there will be silhouettes of the projects I'm uploading so you can see the size of what I'm posting. The format of my channel page has changed as well, and I'm working on putting more art onto it.

      Also, doing this on my birthday, because my gift is giving to you guys.

      I'm a BIG fan of your size comparison chart! It looks fantastic!

      Well, as December comes to a close, and the last of my scheduled projects goes live, I've been no less busy planning for the future. I would like to think that this wave of content has been well received - that you guys are happy to get more ships from me after months of inactivity. If so, I have good news; the posts aren't going to stop.

      This December wave has been a trial run for me, in that I established a schedule, publicly advertised the builds I would post and when, and was able to hold myself to the deadlines (more or less) and release everything I had in reserve. This model is something I intend to continue for the foreseeable future. Every month, a few days in, you will get a schedule for the month's uploads, and a wall post detailing my plans forward. Sometimes you may see many new capital ships, sometimes only fighters and support craft, but the idea is there will always be something to look forwards to, one week after the next. I also want to introduce themes to the waves of content - a common type of ship or type of build that features prominently. I am always open to suggestions - to throw a few out, perhaps you would like a infrastructure wave, full of space stations and buildings? Or maybe a civilian wave, with buses and cars and yachts and all those fun things. If these sound intriguing, comment; share your opinion.

      As always, I will continue to improve and put out the highest quality of builds I can. In this spirit, the January wave has already been decided - I will be revamping most, if not all, of my old builds. Some will see only minor changes - others, total exterior redoes and structural modifications. I will of course put out a few new projects, but my focus is bringing my current portfolio to a degree of quality I consider acceptable. After next month, it will only be new content onwards. I hope you all have happy holidays, and are looking forward to 2018!

      I'm stunned with the pace you build and post your spaceship projects. I can only be jealous!
      Best wishes, Skallord ^^

      "For once in my life I'm not missing deadlines." -Skallord, 12-3-17
      So much for that. A bunch of essays and honors work came up, and I have been unable to put out anything for the last ten days. The good news is that I no long have any schoolwork, as winter break is approaching, so I'm getting right back on my upload schedule.

      You'll likely be seeing multiple posts every day up until Christmas to make up for my short absence. Tomorrow I'll see about getting the three or four strike craft left uploaded, and then follow the rest of my schedule. My apologies for the delay.

      For once in my life I'm not missing deadlines. Here's a sneak peak at the December wave of uploads I advertised about a week ago. Keep in mind that these aren't necessarily to scale with each other:

      There may also be a few surprises in store - I have a few small designs I could build quickly and squeeze into my schedule. At the very least however, expect these eleven ships. The first will be going up tomorrow. Check the upload schedule tab for when you will get what.
