Heh, that may be in your mind.  What you're probably seeing is the normal perspective, but I don't see any curving!  The style of these ships is pretty nice.
Do you plan to make one beauty render? or animate the ships?

Well, if I'm the only one seeing it, maybe I'm just being too nitpicky. XD I tend to do that with my own works.

Mmm... As for what I intend to do with these ships, all these models are actually assets for a much bigger project I'm working on right now. I'm hoping to create a manga with 2D hand drawn characters and 3D modeled ships and backgrounds, kind of like Macross Frontier. Right now, I'm more focused on getting the star ships done first, but maybe I'll also post the 2D stuff here when I get them done.

The effect you mention is just normal foreshortening, a visual effect caused when the camera is quite close to the model, with a wide angle setting.  It can be reduced by moving the camera further back and increasing the zoom to maintain the correct framing, but I think the effect is a positive one and does not detract from the render at all.  Rather, it lends the image a certain dynamicism, as if the ship is in rapid motion towards the camera, and actually makes it appear larger.

Nice! Still a bit hard to distinguish the features though. I think if you manually textured a little bit of detail/shading into certain areas then it'll make it stand out a lot more, rather than relying on just basic cel-shading. I can see that there's the blade(s), guns, and some of the wings but as I get closer to the body it gets harder to tell what's going on.

Good job though, I don't have much patience for anime-style crafts, myself ;)

OooooOoOOoooh, I like that new one, Looks like it could fly it's way through anything, I like the aerodynamic design on the ships, the way the main... pointy bits point back, gives a greater impression of speed, though I agree that some of the areas do dissapear with block colours, Love the style though!

Here's a much needed update after a long hiatus. I've fixed up my renders, so hopefully they look more eye pleasing. I also have a bunch of new ships too.

***face palm***

I think I overdid it on the 3D renders and blew something up in my laptop.

1) Sometimes the monitor refuses to display anything period and is just green, pink, and black static. Hooked up to an external monitor, it displays everything fine.
2) Sometimes the system comes to an halt, the screen slowly fades to white, all the colours bleed, and blue and red microchip patterns form on the monitor. Nothing works and the only way to escape it is to force a shut down
3) Sometimes the monitor flickers

I'm not sure whether it's a burned out graphics card or a burned out monitor. Case 1 leads to me suspect it's a broken monitor, but I don't understand why that would cause system halts and colour bleeds. Maybe both the monitor and the graphics card are busted?

Alas, how I wish for my own personal render farm...

Hah! I hijacked by brother's laptop AND I AM BACK ONLINE! ^_^

Also, my 2D artist came through and finalized all the character designs. Hope you like them. I obviously didn't draw these, but I think they're awesome. >_<

First two characters:
Kaito Kanzaki, the pilot of the crumbling cargo freighter Blue Bird who through a series of unlucky events accidentally becomes the captain of the prototype warship Sunrider. Our main protagonist.

Sora Kanzaki, Kaito's younger sister.

Next set:
Asaga Okrun, a cheerful princess on the run from her parents, and one of the two main heroines.

Chigara-Bin Ashada, a refugee and a mechanical genius. The second of the two main heroines.
