Grand Space Opera 3D Entry: Robert Nyström

Robert Nyström has entered the Grand Space Opera 3D.

Latest Update: Concept Sketch: dummy


This is the dummy of what it will look like. Could use some pointers on how to make the armada look grand by posing the ships

Concept Sketch: The Sacrifice



Maby I'm in over my head, entering both challanges, but since I'm not entering expecting to win anything, I'm guessing the learning experience will be rewarding enough.

So, This is a piece I will call "The Sacrifice". It's a tale of the small induvidual that changed the future for an entire galaxy.
After many years of war between two species, the Mifras and the Vuntarians, a suggestion was made to put the first born child of each of the rulers in an escapepod and send them into the sun as a sacrifice and an end to the war that had ravaged the two planets. The rulers on Mifra and Vuntaria agreed to do this and peace spread thru the galaxy. Niether species would ever forget the names of Bis Mar de Fuug and Liz Donii, the daughters who willingly gave their lives to bring peace to the galaxy, thus becoming the mothers of all.

Ok, so I started reading the FAQ (Recommend it, really) and realised that it's suppose to be epic on a large scale. As in, cities, armies, worlds, etc. Not individuals. To save my original concept I will add a bunch of large spaceships, standing in "salut" in honour of the brave daughters, Bis Mar de Fuug and Liz Donii. Probably wont have time to do that today. In effect the pod with the women will be considerably smaller in the new concept.

Concept Sketch: Whale Layout



This will be the main ship in the armada that will honour the daughters. The other ship will be the Crawler.

Hey Zem! I like the idea of 'The Sacrifice' and I think the fleet in the scene will give it that epic touch. Also like the ship designs, esp. the 'Whale' side view.

As they are different species, it would be interesting to see significantly different designs for each of the sides.

I'm sure sketch group has been good practise for us

More of a floating city then a ship the Mifra Osiris Class Ship can carry a population of 50 000, some of which never will leave the ship during their entire life span of 170 years

Concept Sketch: Concept Daughters



A simple sketch to determin what type of clothing the women will have. I thought I make the cermonial gowns different for them, as the spaceships don't look the same. Two different cultures if you will.

You're really pounding along there zem! Nice clean designs.

I like the concepts of the daughters, especially the costume design on the left.

Thanks erilaz.
Yeah, it's a bit of a bulk post. I wanted the daughters clothes to look really old so I borrowed some design traits from human old age, medievel and a sort of ancient egytian. The cermonial gown is of course something that comes from an old tradition with both the Mifras and the Vuntarinas, but will still be reflected in the spaceship design. Did I succeed? Which daughter belong to which ship? Do you know, or do you need a lifeline?

The aquatic animal look of the ships is a great idea, will you add some others ?
