This is an edge render of a 3d model of the SpaceX “Starship”. By adding transparency, and running black lines around key features I am able top show the internal structure at the same time as the overall shape. I deliberately went for a poster or diagram style of image, with a very small colour palette, to try and get a more technical feel.
I studied astronomy at University College London, but failed to get my degree. For many years pre-internet, I ran the bulletin board "Starbase 1", which is why you will frequently see me referring to myself as that! I was on the board of the IAAA. I operate exclusively in digital formats using many different software packages. Most often Lightwave 3d, Vue, Gaea, and Affinity Photo. I also enjoy oddball graphics packages like Xenodream, Amberlight, and others.
I'm particularly interested in the early Soviet space program, and I have served as a consultant on that subject. Go to the artist's portfolio
