So i guess we have Clyne along with Abrams to blame for the 'Narada' design, which is definately "bad a$$" but looks nothing like a 24th c. Romulan ship aesthetically.
IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE A CLASSIC ROMULAN SHIP. IT IS A PROTOTYPE HYBRID.

I'm really getting tired of explaining this.

The bridge filename makes me think: Academy simulator (Which was a redress of the Kelvin's bridge)

He does nice work, very beautiful. I would certainly like to have one of those Narada pics to hang on my wall. I looked at his other stuff too, the WOTW art is amazing.

Was there evidence of an NX saucer in the actual film? the shot was too quick for me to see.
The Excelsior class(Enterprise B) is still around during TNG. It's used to ferry the Admirals around mostly.

It's an administration ship now.

Until needed in battle as we have seen. So I assume if its good enough for that then its good enough for many other things. Staying closer to home instead of exploring the outer reaches to be sure. Who knows what kind of TNG refits any of them got. AFAIK we have never seen one.

Uhm, he said that the final product doesn't look as cool AS THE CONCEPT ART.

I have to roll my eyes at the point of view that if somebody is using a computer that it some how isn't the same as actual art. There was a time when photography wasn't considered art and now look where we are.

If you're using something to be expressive and imaginative... it's probably art, and don't even try to take that away from the people that spend hours, days, weeks or even months working on images such as these.

Get your respect cap on.

I really have to stifle the feeling not to call it real art or painting. It is incredible work. THe computer is the ultimate tool.

I'm truly baffled by your constant, ignorant need to denigrate digital painting as if it requires less skill and practice than any other form of painting. It suggests a real lack of comprehension of what constitutes artwork.

For putting an NX hull in the debris field, he's my new hero.
