One day humans will leave the earth to live in an other place. Where?... perhaps in a spaceship like that... why not!!

Looks good. Interesting idea. To elaborate a little: What if that was the town hall type area, and individual homes where floating all around it? Maybe they could attatch when they wanted to hit the town. Everybody would be responsible for their own space, and could access the community space to breathe a little fresh tree-air, and interact with the other folks. . . or do their job (whatever that is). Just my thoughts. Take 'em or leave 'em.
Spaceship with an ecosystem. Interesting idea, and since it is still in the concept stage you have alot of room to play. I think this is a nice direction to go.

Totally agree with Foot .... very nice sketch!!
I will suggest adding some sort of planet (not earth) maybe something similar to mars :D at the bottom of the scene.
Very good concept :D looking forward to see the models :D

Another concept of spaceship where human civilisation could live in. with several little ones (rescue ships) who escape from the big carrier (mother ship). well that remind me 'homeworld'.

Thanks for all,
Steen : Interresting, But it's an hard work for me, many things to do, and someone thought about that before, i think.
ARSA : Planet added ... :thumbsup:
emonimo / Foot : Thanks for your replies. Put a link for your thread in signature.

I like your sketches.
maybe try to put more thought to why ppl will end up living there.
Because they travel to colonize other planets?
Their homeworld was destroyed?
mmm... I think it would look better at the botom, like only showing part of it, instead of the whole thing (almost the whole thing)but still looking good :D
10-22-2004, 08:06 PM
Looking good but I think it needs to be much bigger. If I had anti gravity as standard, I'd have forests growing in all directions but I wouldn't have so much glass, I mean why go outside the ship to look at the trees?

really cool work, looking forward to a finished version. quite impressive as well :)
Great idea DaVee!
Tell me something, is it going to have some lights inside the spaceship?
Or the ship will follow the sun path?
this is getting interesting. :)

Wow! Your sketching style puts mine to shame! Great sketches!
I really like the first one. Especially the ship's size. The smallness of it adds a point of interest.
Perhaps hundreds of these lined up in orbit around a star? That might be an interesting premise. Can't for the life of me imagine why it would be that way, but just kicking ideas around.
Man... really nice sketches... I've got to work on my style. :)

DaVee, I really like the idea of the spaceborne arcology -- a bit like what Harlan Ellison and Ed Bryant came up with for the old Canadian series, The Starlost. Look forward to seeing how you manage the modeling portion of this!
10-23-2004, 09:38 AM
Great concepts! Good luck. Can't wait to see the models :)
10-23-2004, 09:42 AM
This idea has a lot of potential... the contrast between cold black space and a huge cosy greenhouse roaming the void... very interesting indeed :thumbsup:
10-23-2004, 10:07 AM
Very nice Davee.......................This has a chance of being a beautiful piece,lots of potential,and a very nice concept to get you there.......all the best,and I am looking forward to your progress............:arteest:
10-23-2004, 10:52 AM
nice work glad to see you again here
good luck friend
10-23-2004, 04:21 PM
Wow a lot of potential there :thumbsup: REally interesting concept. Can't wait to see the 3D out of it. I'll stay tunned.

superlayer : This ship wasn't made to colonize other planets, cause it's a really big city where all humans can cope to all situations, and have a quiet life as soon as it's possible.
ARSA : I'm going to make an other sketch with more détails and improves.
stoat : you don't have to go to exterior to see trees there's an acces to go into, glasses is just to give light for trees.
SnoK : no artificial light for trees when we can have starlight. yes the ship can follow starlight, but you know all trees shall keep a rhythm of night and day.
Viridian : That's an idea, very good. but i have to find a way now. Make one hundred little ships, or just a big one. I don't know what to do... Which one i'll choose?
nuclearman : I don't know the serie 'STARLOST', but i'mm going to find some example on the web.
Thanks for all, and for all your support i appreciate it. :)
10-23-2004, 06:23 PM
as the others said, these concept sketches have huge potential! make it huge and epic, and you might just have my vote! And that includes over my own submission!. :thumbsup:
10-23-2004, 07:14 PM
I love this concept, something very unique and original... sure it will be a wonderful work!
I'll be waiting!!! :bounce:

David, here's a link to a site with some good pics of Douglas Trumball's ship designs for The Starlost:
The detail work on Trumball's work is just phenomenal, though I much prefer the more streamlined nature of the design you've posted.

An idea as to why there could be hundreds of ships containing plants, is the building of a Dyson sphere. The idea is to take all of the debris of a solar system, including the planets, and create a hollow sphere round its star. Its spin would give pseudo gravity. Where Venus is in orbit would be a number of giant oblongs, these would cast shadows onto the Dyson sphere to create night time. Larry Niven's Ring World is a less complete version of the idea. Engineering on a cosmic scale. Astronomers are keeping an eye out for their signatures, which would be in the infra red.

Great stuff :thumbsup:
10-24-2004, 08:42 PM
Love the idea for this. Cool. I just had a random thought, I keep wanting to see more of the interior of the motherhsip jungle madness and thought it might be cool if your shot was in the jungle with all the spaceship structral metal, supports etc, exposed so you knew you were in a man made/natural environment that looked fantastically awesome, and the camera was positioned so you could see through this environment out to the space scene with ships and maybe even some of this motherships exterior coming into frame to reinforce your idea. The details could be rediculous. Sorry for the blab but the image jumped in my head. Use it or loose..I'll be lingering here to see what develops.
Thanks for clarifications, but i´m still with a doubt. (i know it can be a idiot thing)
Do the stars have enough light to feed the plants? I´ve never thought about it.
10-26-2004, 07:16 PM
looks great ! go for it ..... and keep update !:thumbsup:
and about the light, don't worry , u can always use fluorescent lights .... :)
I'm still waiting :shrug:
I really want to see this concept evolve :applause:

Hi, your concept is incredible, it remainds me an image of John Berker one of my favorites, I think you could take a look of his work, it will helps you a lot. Here is an amazing image of him http://wallpaper.microchiot.com/i/wpp_800/4/9/John_berkey_2.jpg
I am working whit cities in the space too, and thats why your forum calls my attention, but I'm working in a diferent way, I create this towers that are conencted each other, and are floating in the space. You should take a look of my work and give me your opinion. www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=184160&highlight=andres+paredes (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=184160&highlight=andres+paredes)
Hope find you soon, and good luck.

Yes snakeFarlow, i saw the image you linked, and That's right my spaceship have something alike his one. (Well... his image is just better than mine obviouly).
Wooww! I have to find time to continue this challenge.
nuclearman : I saw an episode of starlost, that's funny. that remind me space1999... a bit.
SnoK : You know, where my spaceship is, there is always ... always SUPERSTARs!! with highlight that none ever seen in space. I think that will settle the problem. :)
( Fluorescent light that's an idea, painkiller)
Thanks for all your topics.
I'm still waiting for the sketch and for you to continue such a great concept :(
