Well, I'm finally done my project.

My second compilation of the ships from the R-Type universe. The little notes scattered around explain the back story to the video game, so people that don't know will get the idea behind the whole thing.

Don't forget to check out the gallery for descriptions of every ship shown in this picture: [link]

Hierarcy tree: [link]

Spent +2 months working on this. There are 102 different ships in this picture.

Now, fear my fleet!

Thanks to :iconburning-liquid: and :iconthe-danzor: for the lovely planets.

TO THOSE OF YOU, GOING OFF INTO BATTLE, KNOW THIS. WE STAND HERE TODAY, AT THE DAWN OF A NEW AGE. AN AGE WHERE WE NO LONGER HAVE TO COWER IN FEAR. AN AGE WHERE THE THREAT OF THE BYDO NO LONGER LOOMS LARGE OVER OUR HEADS. SOME OF YOU MAY NOT RETURN FROM THIS MISSION, AND WORSE, SOME OF YOU MAY EVEN FALL TO THE ENEMY. BUT KNOW THIS! FIGHT WELL, AND GIVE THE BYDO HELL. MAY WE ERASE THIS MISTAKE OF MAN'S FROM HISTORY, AND BRING FORTH A NEW AGE FOR HUMANITY!! :salute:

One hundred and....TWO? Is one of the ships there twice? Or is there a hidden 102nd? And I saw almost all the flavor text there....only one level is not represented here it looks like!

;A; It's so beautiful. I can't believe I found someone who made a picture for every single one of the R-Type Final ships.
You are my hero ._.

This is really cool. Your hard work and effort really show off in these cute little ships.

Some suggestions: The ships look a little too bright and "clean". It would be cool to add in some rust or dirt or debris or laser scorch marks on some of them to give them a "battle-weary" kind of look.

Also, the lighting is a bit off. Even though I know you probably meant this to be a sort of chart of ships in your fleet, it would be cool to attune their lighting to the actual planetary light sources that they're near. Maybe something to think about for next time.

Finally, while these planets are cool and all, what you might consider doing is going over to the NASA web site and downloading some of their awesome deep space and planetary images taken of the real things in space. Then incorporating those into your background to give it an awesome sense of realism. All NASA images are for public use since they were paid for by public dollars. Just another suggestion maybe for next time or if you choose to redo this image ever.

Other than those things, this is a really cool chart of ships.

Thanks for the comment.

Some of the ships came out clean, but I eventually realized not all of them are gonna be like that. So, I eventually added scratches and stuff on the rest of the ones I did.

For the lighting, yea I could be more careful on that but I was sorta working as I go. I mostly used gradients on these ships cause I had 102 ships to deal with and I needed a quick method on accomplishing that. Also the fact that I knew this wouldn't attract much attention.
