CONCEPTUAL MODELLING
 
ESCHER
For my 3rd year major project, I designed the interior of a spaceship from the book 'Dark Orbit'.

To get an idea of what I wanted the inside to look like, I firstly designed the exterior so that I could transfer the same style to the inside.

For inspiration I used the 'Alien' franchise as well as the 'Halo' franchise as the starting points for this model as I like their individual styles and felt (at the time) that they would suit the period of time that the book was set in.

RE-DESIGNED ESCHER
After sitting on the original design for a bit, I eventually decided that the design wasn’t quite what I was after.

I wanted a more futuristic look as well as a bulkier aesthetic, making it look like it could withstand the asteroid fields and debris in space.

For inspiration I looked at more futuristic sources such as games like 'Mass Effect' and 'EVE' online, as well as TV series like 'Battlestar Galactica' and 'Star Trek'.

Some research into films like 'Star Wars' and 'Sunshine', and some surfing through Pinterest, and this is the design I came up with.

MECH
As side projects, I enjoy creating models from junk or other model kits and bashing the two together.

For one such project, I decided to create a remote controlled military vehicle, the sort of thing you would see in 'Terminator' or 'Edge of Tomorrow'. I looked at the artist Jakub Rózalski, as his pieces always have great shape and would give me a starting point on the stance of the Mech.

After a little research and concept art surfing, I decided to go for the four legged crab-like stance, and to mount a cannon to the top, turning it into an artillery piece. Big bulky front legs protect it from any frontal fire and long shock absorbing rear legs act as a giant suspension system.

RACER
For this project, I wanted to design a near future racer.

Looking at pod racing from 'Star Wars' and an old TV show called 'Oban Star Racers', I decided to design a small, single pilot craft that would be highly agile and fast.

I loved the idea that these racers would be put together from old plane parts and junk, mixed with the technology that the pilots would have available to them.

So, I came up with the idea of making this particular racer have a hot rod-esque feel, with an exposed engine fan and visible cables.
