If you're still looking, we have some spaceships at https://kickassrenderstock.com/collections/air-and-space

Nice stuff there. I wish I could write fast enough to become a repeat customer. :)

I license 3D models from cgtrader, pose them in Blender, render them with lighting and new textures, etc, and then put them in front of a background image or ten.

There's some really great stuff there, but I noticed they seem to allow users to sell unlicensed (I assume) models of recognizable pop-culture ships (Star Wars, Gallactica, etc). So this makes me worry that any ship I bought could conceivably be an unlicensed ship I just don't happen to be familiar with. The second that goes up on Amazon though, someone will point it out.

No concerns there in your usage?

Hi All.

I'm looking for illustrations of space ships for use in cover art. Vectors or images are preferred. I'm finding there's an extremely limited selection on most of the stock photo sites.

If you have any resources, stores, or sites you can point me to, I'd be grateful. If push comes to shove I can learn how to use Blender and build out some models, but I'd rather purchase something premade if I can.

At this point, I'm not looking to hire an illustrator to paint a custom cover. I just need ships! :)

Thanks!

Wonder

I learned Blender in order to get what I wanted. The results were awesome but the learning curve to get there was significant.

Thanks, friends. I appreciate the pointers!

I did see a book cover recently with the ship from Space 1999 on the front. Someone must have got that from a stock site not knowing where it came from.

I still have a couple of open slots in February!

I get mine from

and
https://www.dreamstime.com/

Both have a good selection, but I always google the image to see if it's been used by another publisher... Some images end up being used many times.
