Concept Sketch: Modern Firemen

The Story:

Itīs the year 3072. Man has discovered new worlds and has found ways to settle down on other planets, after making life on earth impossible. Inugaja 29, a planet with an athmosphere of extremely toxic gas and ion storms isnīt the best place to be, but the high population forces people to use every space they can get. To avoid contact with this gas they created buildings 300 meters above the ground standing on big high endurable poles. Above this big toxic cloud the athmosphere contains a little bit oxygen that is filtered by Otwo-Facilities and is used to recycle the air in the colony.

Many years after this colony was built near space bases get emergency signals from it. Workers of the colony that have to check the poles and go down to the surface by elevators didnīt return and earthquakes already made two normal buildings and 3 Otwo-Facilities fall.

You are a member of the IES the "Intergalactic Emergency Squad" and your team was called to find out what is going on down there and to save as many people as you can if the problem canīt be solved.

Right now you and your team are above the toxic athmosphere of Inugaja 29 ready to jump down from the IES dropship in your specials suits and jet packs.

Your story description highlights a detailed imagination.

Thanx for your reply!

The idea with the reflection is really good and i think i will do this!
I donīt know where he got shot
was just painting around... the IES members in the ship wonīt have
any wounds.

Thanx again

that IES member looks great, and I agree about putting reflections in the visor to tell more of the story

Hi Josh,

great to see u in
Hey mate, your sketches come along great and your storyline is quite creative ( I like the idea
of the O2 Towers a lot!)!... ,
...your start of modelling looks really promising.... but maybe one little hint: for my taste there's a little bit to less "epic" feeling in your concept ...Hmm.perhaps a bigger view from the platform the soldiers stay with quite a big spacestation in sight...(?)
Keep on flowin,dude!! Lookin' forward to see more of the I.E.S. Troops

Hi Sascha,

thanx for your reply.
Yes you are right... the epic style doesnīt come out
in my concept sketch...
In the background will be much more stuff. There will
be a big evac ship and you will see more and bigger
buildings so i hope it will get more epic.

Sorry guys, had to do some other work today...

Model of the complete IES Member will be online soon!

Concept Sketch: IES Evacuation Ship

This will be a IES Evac Ship in the background.

It can hold up to 120.000 people.
The rotating tubes on each side generate artificial gravitation for itīs passengers. The transport elevator is mounted on a ring, that can also rotate and lift up and down to reach every point on the outer side of the tube.

I think it is epic enough for the theme.....But the idea is epic in itself......The size is not all that matters when epic is thought of.........I like your start on the modeling as well joachim.......Keep it up,you have potential with this,and I wish you the best to get there.......

Only one thing up to now. I'm curious about the horizon line of the toxic planet..

Nice helmet! Keep going!

Hi Andrey,

youīre right...
this horizon line should show, that itīs a sea of clouds,
but the clouds that make this line are so far away, that
they wonīt make such waves...

Thank U and
Greetings from Joachim
