Grand Space Opera 3D Entry: Sascha Michael Maerz

Sascha Michael Maerz has entered the Grand Space Opera 3D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Final final


ok, here's the final one which I've uploaded last night.... hope u like it...now it's too late to change ;-)

Edit: Forgot the description.....ooopps:D

Title: ENCOUNTER

The pic above describes the cometogether of two absolutely different species. one species called the Y'rr - warriors from nature, discovered foldpoints to another starsystems. One of them leads to the hegemony of a jellyfish like race called the Car'lumen...caused of their evolution history, they conquer the space only to his natural frontiers (but with knowing the foldpoint technology) and built strong defense systems around their foldpoints...
The moment the Y'rr intrudes the reach of power of the Car'lumen is a moment of surprise, a moment of thread - a moment of silence....the encounter of two of the most powerful species in the galaxy....

best regards+have fun, friends

Yes, your style is special and unique ...and you know there is no style all people like....I'm a fan of yours, you know. Mainly your love for details is absolutely fascinating - and it's a pity, that u don't take part in this actual contest. It would be an enrichment to see your visions about this theme....

...I'm very excited about your opinion about my concept which is coming between friday and sunday. Thank you for your support, my friend

Concept Sketch: Concept



Above you see some concepts for warships of the Y'rr. My favorite is the last:-) I think it looks more aggressive than the other...
...and here's my storyline so far:

Work-Title "THROUGH"

In a future far away from ours, in a place unimaginable further than humans think, lies a planet
called Y'rra, embedded in a strange universe - the Tor'am'en Universe.
With a wild and hostile environment, the inhabitants have to fight for their life. From an early
age most of the species tried to use mechanical techniques to survive. Of all species, the planet
has begotten, only the martial Y'rr arrived the level of intelligence to explore the world and space
around them. Based on their hard life, their mentality is warlike and as soon as possible they began
to expand their territory. They've learned that physical strength can overwhelm menaces from other
species, so - after reaching the level of space technology - they built warships to ambush their
neighbours in their universe rubbing out rivalism. In a time span of 200 years, they rule the room between
their three giant-suns in their system in a range of 80 parsecs (260 lightyears).
The incredible distance was bridged over by a kind of wormhole technology which use so called foldpoints.
These foldpoints were created by magneticfields of a giant-star and can be used for travelling between them.
A disadvantage of this sort of wormholes is that they border the range of jumps between the magnetic
influences. The system in Tor'am'en is an isle system, no entrance from outer space and no exit.
Time goes by and many generations of the Y'rr were grown up and died in the natural circle of life.
Certainly a star has to subject itself the principles of nature. And then a supernova was born as the star
died. After the shock of destruction, the Y'rr looked for their foldpoints, the basement of their might.
Some points were destroyed, but there were some new, too......
The Y'rr scientist decided to send out an exploration fleet to discover the new points and whats behind.
Like their traditional method, certainly warships were sent out, not thinking about that aggression could be
a mistake.

The Car'lumen, a species arisen from intelligent jellyfish, dominated their room since immemorial times.
Their principles of surviving causes on adamant hardness. No mercy for other species, so their domain has no
other races left after their crusade. Because of the same physics the universe works, they know all about
their foldpoints. The difference between the Car'lumen and the Y'rr is that the Car'lumen don't want to expand
more than they need. Based on their history and evolution, the security is the most important thing for them.
They built up their territory with defence systems and awful weapons. The technology of the Car'lumen is based
on organic principles like living spaceships and machines, cultivated only for specific purposes, without any use of
metal or other minerals humans need.

The moment, the Y'rr enter the hegemonia of the Car'lumen and their first contact is a moment of silence, a
moment of threat, a moment of fright...........

This is the moment I want to show.....
