First off, very cool image, and thanks again for taking my tutorial and running with it. I love the rounded corners on your secondary s...





An asteroid mining robot, the dig is designed to land on an asteroid in swarms and scrape the surface with its strong paws. Since many asteroids are basically large piles of rubble, and opposed to solid rock, removing material from the surface is actually quite easy. The disturbed surface material will then be caught in large nets for transport to a refinement facility.

Spider Walker Robot 6
The Spider Walker MK 6, affectionately known as "The Pup", was a Mars military tracker robot. Its head carried sensors of every sort, from telescopic cameras to radar to infrared sensors to footfall detection. It's job was to pursue its target, pinpoint their exact location, then call in a strike team to capture or kill. It also contained a self destruct mode if the strike team couldn't arrive in time, and there was danger of the target escaping. While its large head was excellent for holding all of the tracking equipment, it was also one of its major design flaws, since it made the robot somewhat unbalanced, and a strong blow to the head could lead to it tipping over. Spindly legs allowed it to move fast over a variety of terrain, but didn't help the balance problems.
Thusolan Teardrop Craft
The Thusolans are a species of intelligent liquid dwelling lifeforms, each creature is almost microscopic, but together they form hive minds capable of incredible computational power and limited telepathy. Their spacecraft are basically giant bottles of liquid, each filled with enough Thusolans to form a local hive, these teardrop craft traverse the galaxy in search of raw materials for their interstellar projects.
Heart Of The Giant: Ganymede Freighter Aphelion 1
Ganymede Freighter Aphelion is a transport ship that hauls raw materials between installations on the moons of Jupiter. In the future, mining crews melt giant sink holes in Ganymede's icy crust down to the salt water oceans below, a little like ice fishing in the arctic. The ocean is used as a source of propellant for deep space exploration ships. Freighter Aphelion travels between the moons in space, and then lands on the Ganymede Ocean where it converts to an amphibious vehicle, glides along the water to the port, and receives its cargo. Inspired by Star Wars ships, submarines and tug boats, after an initial sketch, this image was painted digitally over a few simple 3d blocks.
Moon Mining Transport
A hopper transport for mining on the moons of Jupiter, rare minerals are excavated from underground and above ground sites, then transported to launch areas in preparation for their journeys off world for processing. Painted in Photoshop over some simple 3d boxes.

Neil Blevins
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.

Today's the day, last day before "The Story of Inc" Kickstarter ends. It's been a wild ride, and we thank everyone for participating. It's almost certain we're going to stay funded (baring some crazy calamity), so now the last day isn't about rushing to reach some monetary goal, the last day is about you and the book. We have worked hard to make the best book we know how. Something with a compelling story and great artwork. And we want as many people as possible to enjoy it.

So if you're still on the fence, consider one final time getting a copy of the book. If you love scifi stories. If you love robots and stark alien landscapes. Aliens and giant alien monolithic starships. And if you want a strong emotional story about a true odd couple that are both trying to find meaning in a crazy world. The book is $20 + shipping, and should be in your hands right before the Christmas holidays. We hope you'll join us on our final day, and again, thanks for watching, pledging and/or sharing this project.…
