Vitalii Ostashenko is a concept artist from Rivne who loves to draw space and spaceships. And Vitalii is a real patriot, so he has a whole series of impressive ships in honor of different cities of Ukraine.
Odesa, Kropyvnytskyi, Ostroh, Kolomyia, Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk… In short, find your city here.
Vitalii does not hide that he is inspired by games in his works, first of all Homeworld. And here is the studio Blackbird Interactive, the same one created by the authors of the original Homeworld and currently working on Homeworld 3, invited Vitaliy Ostashenko to develop a spacecraft design in the colors of the Ukrainian flag.
Blackbird commissioned @Valahor2, a skilled Ukrainian artist, to design this concept ship with the colors of the Ukrainian flag. This ship is a standalone design, not meant to come to any particular game, but to symbolize hope for the future of a free Ukraine.#FanArtFriday pic.twitter.com/2eQALEid59
