Armed and dangerous, the UNSC Strident-class Heavy Frigate is a nod to the standard frigate design, but with some serious armour!
About this creation
The UNSC Strident-Class Heavy Frigate. I didn't at first realize this was still considered a frigate class ship, but upon studying the design I noticed the similarities, and the differences. Armoured and armed to the teeth, this beast still allows for support of larger capital ships and destroyers while optioning to assist ground based operations and troop deployments. My picture above I have explored adding more shadows as per the local sun, as well as running lights with the name of the ship on the side (I called her the Eye of the Medusa). You see the Medusa approaching orbit over New Harmony in that picture, but I would like comments and feedback in comparison to my previous style of leaving the ship fairly unaltered in the background shots (see the pic below, after the covenant have visited the planet...). Enjoy!
And once again, please compare the styles of how I photoshopped the background and ship in the two images from this post and tell me which you like better!
