Gah! These Blassty images need a lot of clean up! They say nothing worthwhile is easy but some of these images are too much. I spent a long time today cleaning up 5 line art images of the Blassty itself. Gray background removal, rotating, contrast correction, fuzzy halo removal... This is not one of my easier projects.
One of the interesting things I'm noting is most of the Blassty mechs have cockpits and separate "cruise cabins" with air locks. It seems pilots scoot back from the cockpit to a cramped cabin for long space flights. I wish I could read more about it.
If you don't like the news then go make some of your own.
