    Ever increasing population created the need for mass transport.

    Along with several hundred other projects, the Boeing 'Divine' was created as part of an artificial revitalisation of the worlds economies beginning in 2017. This 'reboot' of society as it came to be known, redefined the distance which the average person would call local. With a range of 2500 miles on a single charge and a cruise speed of mach .78 the Divine was capable of handling intercontinental routes, however its actual performance niche was that of the revitalisation and replacement of current public transportation for journeys of between 50 and 300 miles. Integral to this was the Divines VTOL capacity which created a support facility/landing facility construction demand in every major city in the western world that chose to avail of it, further increasing local economic revitalisation.

    Like its transcontinental big brother, the 877, The Divine operated with neither human pilot not physical cockpit. While the initial public reaction to a pilot-less vehicle was negative, a sustained media campaign outlining the necessity and superiority of the 'machine pilot' for the new application directed public opinion into a favourable direction

    - example above taken from the July 2023 Time magazine (print edition) and e edition.

    The sealed cockpit less system negated the obvious danger hijacking would always present to piloted public aircraft and allowed for the incredibly dense airspace which resulted from the uptake of the Divine and similar unmanned air vehicles. By 2023 an estimated 6300 Divines were operating within the US in the target short – ultra short range, a number which tripled by 2030.

    Subsonic luxury jetliner; one that emphasized noise isolation, efficiency and class. In this pursuit the double decked plane also possesses two wings, both isolated from vibrations and noise created in the engines. All engines are required for takeoff, however in flight only the front engines are really needed. The rear ones spin at the background level to avoid drag. Passengers enter and exit through the door on the nose, and the pilots viewport is under the nose to provide better takeoff and landing visibility.

    Several notes on this round as usual:

    Again, some nice entries in this round. Not sure if this is because of the extra time I gave or the topic or something else, but I hope you'll keep pushing it

    Some entries didn't make it to poll, either because of it still being a WIP or because it didn't look finished enough.

    Fughi from Yuggoth: Shame you didn't finish it. Despite all our warnings of using a blocky 3d model for a streamlined airplane, I'd have liked to see what you'd come up with.

    Benkashmir: I wasn't sure which one was supposed to be your final entry, but both seem a bit unfinished. If you'd put some more work in your first one it might have made it to poll, but the angle you chose to portray the plane together with the fact that it's a bit blurry and very white made me decide against it.

    thescala: Both designwise and the painting itself are just not there yet. The wings, especially the wingtips, look a bit too blocky to provide enough lift, and the rear wings are even missing (a pretty vital part of most airplanes). As for the drawing itself, work a bit more with value, shadows and color to make the form clearer and stand out from the background more. It also looks too blurry at places, making it hard to read.

    Arttorney: Although it's good to see you out here, I decided not to take yours to poll this time. It might help to use more reference next time, as it looks very much like the stereotype helicopter rather than a special design. Also, the image is rather small...

    Atomatik: Despite the whole discussion in the thread, yours wasn't finished yet

    LANN: Hm the rules don't say you can't do that indeed, but I think you already suspected yours might not make it to poll. The reason here is that while it's a great effort to come up with multiple solutions to one problem, to deliver a 'finished' piece you'll need to make a choice and present that as the final. Since you decided to work on 7 concept sketches, none of them are finished as much as they could have been if you'd worked one out a bit further.

    I really liked how a lot of designs pushed angles that were not about speed, and more about factors that will gain higher importance in reality in the coming years, like noise pollution. And to cut to that chase i voted for Legato because i felt he went 'All in' with his concept, and really pushed it on the noise/vibration element, both to those outside and inside the plane. I love seeing follow through in ideas that way, as i think it can grant a lot of realism which is fairly vital is this situation.

    In terms of rendering i liked dhomochevski and hatama most, for the awesome scale and lighting. But as i said for me its the idea strength, not the render that gets my juice flowing.

    I feel your pain Dekus, I never finished mine. I will probably still finish it for myself though. I love your design. The engines look great. You would have gotten my vote if that counts =)

    unfortunatly i got stuck with my design and than got a lack of time to start again.
    in the last i tried adding like 2 engines on the front , maybe a ring wing around the cockpit and something like ski-flying wings, but it doesn't work as conceptual unit.
    i will try my best in the next round

    voting and critics later

    nice entries everyone!
    I voted for evamonkeyn2, great design!
    I also like Hatama's one, but it seems more an airplane frome the 60'/70' (wich is awesome, but not very in topic)

    voted for evamonkeyn2. best design in my opinion, which is what this challenges are all about, design, not technical rendering skill.

    btw - i liked the big one a lot more than the small one, and he is the reason you got my vote.

    2nd fav for me is mate proof, nice design in terms of aestetichs and alternative energy usage, but its shape abit problematic.

    jim hatama painting is great, and offcourse the rendered finished product is very important too, but the design there seems way too conventional.



    dekus - the rear is great, the overall perspective is way way off.

    Well the thing is, near future was defined if memory serves as up to 50 years. I think that actually gives a pretty big slice of leeway.
