Topic: Inter-Galactic Transport Ship
Secondary Title: Peaceful Planetary People Plopper for Popsicle Pushing Podiatrists
(Courtesy & care of a comatose Cotron)
Nice and generic topic (the second one is optional).
Background: We've reached the stars and now have to transport people through our galaxy and into others - design a ship that does just that.
1. Transports people through the known universe.
2. Inclusion of alliteration will be looked upon highly.
Deadline: Friday 29th September (only 1 week, it's an easy topic, you can do it!)
Away from the office all weekend but managed to get something started last night. Hopefully I can get this finished by the end of the week.
Thought was to design something with some classic lines/styling of a early liner.
The front of the ship is heavy shielding to protect the crew and passengers from the hash radiation as the vessel pushes through hyperspace. A larger emitter array is built into the fore which produces hyperspace fissures that the vessel travels through. The command tower contains the vessels operation controls and communication systems whilst the tower behind contains luxurious cabins and facilities for first class passenger with 2nd and 3rd class lower down in the ship.
27.09.06 - updated with current WIP, not looking as finished as I would like, better knuckle down tonight. Reactors, exhaust ducts and passenger compartment modelled.
Still a WIP unfortunately.

I thought I would try a wip, to embarrass myself into finishing. I thought we were suppose to not use the image tags, but I have not seen or figured out the image manager I read in the sticky. so till I do, its all I got.
The T.O.M. (Terran-Occupant-Manager) Toting Torpedo Tube
was used to flop folks around to the now many habital planets in our neck of the woods. It was named the torpedo tube in reference to its old war counterpart.
dont know why I am bothering after looking at Sogbad's post. But heck, I guess you gotta try and learn.

My first IOW, not very good with machines i have to admit, byt having just started a technical illustration course at uni i need to learn quickly. Thus i present my entry...
hmmm photobucket seems to be broken....the picture will appear eventually.
My english is not the best around, so about the breif, #2, what does including alliteration mean? A quick search in an online dictionary gave me stuff about using words with the same sounds or something alike....
Alliteration is a sentence like:
"Taking tarantulas on the train is terrifying." <-- note the T's
Basically it's the repetitive use of a consonant.
I think I'll join in on this one and make it my first IDW
Hermes, Interstellar Locomotive.
WIP, I WILL finish this time, have the whole Sunday with nothing to do but drink, eat and complete!
Kind of finished!!!
While the rich, famous and good travel between the stars, their every whim catered for aboard fabulously sleek and beautiful starships, most have to do with passage aboard self contained units strapped to a Tramp Interstellar Locomotive. The Locomotive's are operated independently of the units which it pushes across the Universe. Once a route and schedule has been published by the Locomotive company independent agents book a unit of a certain mass to be attached to the Locomotive. These Units can range from large relatively luxurious accommodation, similar in facilities and comfort of a luxury hotel down to basic air tight steel containers with barely enough facilities to keep the occupants alive for the entire trip, indeed many unscrupulous agents simply pack as many passengers as will fit into tiny units not caring about the survivability.
Due to the huge profit's made and the dubious liability issues most locomotives are registered and operated under flags of convenience, the Hermes although owned by a large Asian corporation is registered out of La Plaze, Bolivia.

The gliding Gateliner graces the greater galaxies & gets good gas... mileage. And Stuff.
The commercial gateliners travel continuously between the stars, hitting one rendezvous point per system on their route. Upon rendezvous, one or more shuttle shells may couple aboard for the next major burn, or detach to ferry passengers planetside.

Sogbad. nice, nice, nice. took a look at your site as well, I'm jealous. nice work.
I only live for today, but I'm one day behind.
Thanks very much Dragonspit, I wish I could spend more time doing concept work, it's only through practice that you get better, and I'm to busy doing schedules and art management to get any better
Inter-Galatic Immigrants Investigate Into Infinity
With the advent of trans-galatic exporlation the earth viewed space as a vast ocean and was in a need of a ship capable of both high speed and large volume of passengers. The designers of the GAL-XE sought out to create a vessel based upon those luxury cruises, deep sea submarines and speed boats of years past. The GAL-XE although rather large is higly manuverable due to its streamlined shape, and two front splitters, allowing it to change course within seconds. It is also equipped with three large jet turbine engines. These not being the most technologically advanced, however they out accelerate any modern electromagnet propulsion system, which is crucial if ever encountered with an unforseen black hole.

Affordabe Advanced Aeronautics for Abandonment Abroad
also known as a spacejunk.
These solar-sail powered ships are known to cruise through outerspace selling wares and taking low-paying travellers to their destinations. The ships vary, but the majority are made from old reworked containers.
If you're thinking of travelling in one, get life insurance.

I am going to have to bow out of this one. Time has indeed flown - I'll be back to vote though.
...it's too quiet in here. I hope there will be more art when I check back tomorrow.
I posted my final up above.
I'll close up the thread and post the poll in about 12 hrs (mainly because I have to finish my entry :p ). I should post a new topic before then.
Great work everyone!
