    HMS Indomitable ONNI Recognition Guide

    Well I'll be, a better resolution Break Away view of her than I currently have on my person. Always a pleasant sight. Much appreciated on posting that, Formidable. That showcases what I strive for. To get to the point where I can give my own works a 3 dimensional feel.
  2. Good day my fellow Captains. Once again it is my pleasure to present to you another entry into my ONNI Recognition Manual. This time around I decided to feature the Tier VIII Premium Carrier, HMS Indomitable (92). Having done a BB and a CB for the first 2 entries I wanted to test my developing skills by having a go at drawing a CV. I have tweaked the format a bit further this time around as well. Compliments to everyones continued input I do believe this is the best looking work yet. And as always, further input is more than welcome. For those curious on the delay of this entry. I wont lie, my OCD flared up quite often in this course of this production. And got me hosed when I was making sections to be symmetrical like a numpty haha That, and I went out of my way to design a set of Sea Hornets to sit on her deck. Just didn't feel correct having a Carrier without Planes sitting on her deck. Besides, I find they give a much needed sense of scale. Adding to the perspective. As an aside, a fact that has been pointed out time and again to me when I had teased Indomitable prior; For those who enjoy Azur Lane, this is the closest ship you have to Lusty in WoWs. *Heavy sigh And as Prim calls her, 'busty lusty' due to the larger hangar space and air wing. Now! For a bit of fluff: -SUPPLEMENTAL- LAID DOWN: 10 NOVEMBER 1937 LAUNCHED: 26 MARCH 1940 SISTERS IN CLASS: ILLUSTRIOUS, FORMIDABLE, VICTORIOUS ORIGINAL AIRCRAFT COMPLEMENT: 22 HAWKER SEA HURRICANE MKIIC, 12 MARTLET MKII(F4F GRUMMAN WILDCAT), 16 FAIREY ALBACORE CREW COMPLEMENT: 1,392 DISTINGUISHING FEATURES: ASYMMETRICAL TEAR DROP PLAN SMOKESTACK AND ISLAND 2 PAIRS OF PILL BOX DUAL PURPOSE SECONDARY BATTERY MOUNTS ON EACH BOW AND QUARTER DESIGNED TO OPERATE 48 AIRCRAFT COMPARED TO HER SISTER SHIPS 36 HAS A RAISED FLIGHT DECK COMPARED TO HER SISTERS. FACILITATING AN ADDITIONAL HANGAR PLACED ABOVE THE ORIGINAL.
  3. Greetings my fellow Captains. It is my pleasure to present you with the 2nd project I have completed as part of my continued ONNI Recognition Manual. This page featuring the Tier IX Cruiser IJN Azuma (formally Tier X). And I do believe this entry will be close to, if not the, format I will be making use of from here on in. Of which, I would like to thank all those that gave feedback and criticisms. The suggestions of adding a top down view makes for a far better perspective of the ship. In addition to providing a pleasant challenge that was darn worth it. I have also changed to something close to the suggested Courier font. Both of these additions giving this work a more authentic look. I will admit my initial want to create one entry for the ONNI guide each month was a mite ambitious. Especially having a collective 5 months of experience drawing in vector under my belt haha In reality, adding the top down view may be taking these back to 10 in a year due to the added load. With that said, I am still learning the intricacies of Inkscape. So things may pick up the pace with the more knowledge I gain. As a side note I had planned on having this completed 2 days ago. Then the recent devblog post announced some changes to the Azuma. This changed her armor model for one. As you can imagine that required some further editing haha To bookend matters; If you fancied catching updates on my progress for future ONNI guide entries feel free to hop on over to the Numpty Navy Discord - https://discord.gg/EJ4YMM4 *Keep things laid back and civil* Updates are posted in the onni-teaser channel.

    SMS Viribus Unitis Recognition Guide

    Admittedly that is one of the reasons I decided on ONNI vs ONI. Gotta love quirky typos in the original ONI files. Figured I'd explain the use of ONNI here since it triggered a mate of mine to no end when I showed this to him for the first time haha
  5. Good day my fellow captains. Today I would like to share with you a project I have been working on over the past 3 months; A facsimile ONI Identification guide featuring the upcoming Tier IV BB SMS Viribus Unitis. I tried mixing aspects of official recognition guides w in game stats. And potentially make tweaks/additions in the document for future works. I created this while learning Vector using Inkscape on my own in my spare time. And I have to say, learning/working in vector is worlds easier than doing line art in raster. It is my want to get one or two of these done for each new set of Work In Progress ships released in WoWs. Mostly due to the fact that making this has been very therapeutic. In addition I figure if everyone enjoys these even half as much as I do making them, I look forward to posting them here on the forums for your viewing pleasure. As an aside the 'ONNI' tag I used is intentional. For those that do not know, ONI stands for Office of Naval Intelligence. ONNI (Office of Numpty Naval Intelligence) hearkens back to my Silent Hunter III days. In where myself and my cohorts named our group the Numpty Navy when we had gaming sessions together haha Which I now use as the title for the folks I play/stream shooty boats with. To bookend to all of this, future works will be even cleaner. As I has mentioned I am very new to vector art. Heck, since producing this work I have learned a fair bit more about alignment tools alone. So input/criticism is most certainly welcome. One doesn't get better at a craft without it. That said, keep your eyes out for the Tier X Azuma. I took a liking to her and plan on making one of these for her next.

    US Alaska Stream

    Curious to see how the current 'Work in Progress' US Alaska plays? I will be streaming her over on my twitch channel for the next few days during the Late Night billing: https://www.twitch.tv/starshield_na Swing on by, lay back, have a chat, and watch the show. The company is most certainly welcomed. *As always, if gravely voices aren't your thing this wont be your cup of proverbial tea. This bloke is no Mickey Mouse.
