Megastructures 7 Star Lifter Design Packet
A star lifter removes mass from a star for either raw materials or to change the nature of the star itself. For example, you may remove mass from the star to collect hydrogen or other elements. Or you could remove mass in order to extend the life of the star, to make the star dimmer, or reduce the chances of a super nova.

Sculpted in Oculus Medium in VR, then exported to 3dsmax and rendered in vray.

The Skagin is a small creature that lives on the moon of a distant planet circling a distant star, during the day they burrow into the soft soil to stay hidden, at night they venture out to scavenge from the carcasses left behind by the day predators.

Inc Oasis Wall 1

"We cautiously made our way closer to the city built in the shadow of the Citadel. What at first appeared insignificant now seemed impenetrable. Tall walls circled the place, and guard towers served as a reminder that you were watched at all times."

I decided that another painting of the Oasis wall was in order, this time with a more dramatic camera angle to show off the perspective and to illustrate the rough sands blown by the winds. All painted in photoshop with the exception of Inc the robot, which was originally a render that I swiped from another painting then painted over to change the pose and lighting.

Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
I've been an artist for as long as I can remember. Raised in Canada on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I began painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into the computer, making 3d graphics and painting in 2d digitally. Professionally, I've created art for animated features, live action, videogames, TV, ride films and album art for companies like Blur Studio, and Pixar, where I currently work as a Technical Director.

Welcome to the Dec Update, probably the final update for the year, but next year we have monthly updates of pictures and behind the scenes info, so expect a lot more stuff to come a lot faster real soon. In the meantime, two last orders of business for 2014.

First, we now have an official Inc facebook page, blog and tumblr...

Please like or follow your prefered site if you want to get all the most up to date info about the project. And please invite others who you think would be interested to follow along as well. I will continue to post some info on my other personal social media pages (soulburn3d Facebook page, soulburn3d twitter, etc), but the majority of the updates will now go on these sites.

And second, our first Inc Teaser Poster is in the gallery. I think it gives a pretty good indication of the tone of the project.

Thanks everyone for all your comments and input in 2014, next year is the team finishing the book and then sending it off to the publisher. I am so excited to get Inc finished and want to get it to you guys as soon as possible. But good things come to those who wait, and I want to make sure that the final product you get is of the highest quality, so a little waiting is going to be necessary. Thanks for the support, see you first thing in 2015!
