Storyboards / pre-visualization: First Character Concept



This is the first concept 'drawing' of the probe. It need to be more flatlined to suite the exploration needs. I already put some remarks on it.

I love a good spherical robot!

I assume (and I may be incorrect) that you're taking the style from Tik-Tok in the Return to Oz film?

I only ask because he's one of my favourite robots & when I saw your thumbnail I immediately thought of him!

Well actually not at first but after some comments from a friend of mine that it looked like Tik-Tok I decided to borrow some elements from it because it's very much steampunk (I hope that it is not againts the challange rules). At first my inspiration comes from the robot Vincent from the movie 'The Black Hole'

Storyboards / pre-visualization: Storyboard 'Last Change On Chaltar'



Storyconcept
'LAST CHANGE ON CHALTAR'

At the end of our universe there is a civilization on the edge of extinction. All of the resources are exhausted and there is no technology to have any kind of recycling. All of the water is polluted and the trees are dying.

Their only hope is to reach the colonies at the deep ends on the moons of Chaltar. Unfortunately there is no contact with these colonies since the ending of the great red dessert war over one hundred years ago.

Now the last hope is to send out the last probes to search these colonies.

Storyboards / pre-visualization: First Spaceship Concept



The concept behind this is that it's been build out of simple shapes. The ship is driven by the sun. The back, that also is the driver, heats up. That heat is transported to the spheres. The spheres contains water. That steam drives the propellor. The lines around the hemisphere are some kind of heat-sinks that prevents overheating.

Work In Progress: Spaceship



Most of the modelling part is done for the spaceship. I review this later because I don't really know how much detail will be left over in movie. Next some more work on the probe.
