Topic: Salvage (Space)Ship
The Stratar2983 was the main workhorse of the InterGalaxial Salvage Union. Small and powerful, it could carry back to home base chunks of almost anything non-radioactive; anything from fighter skirmish rubble to bits of metal-rich asteroids. The small main body housed the crew, pilots and engineers and provided sanitary and sleeping quarters in addition to the flight deck, while the salvage pens, well, held salvage and varied in size. Unfortuately, these ships are going out of the workforce as they get more and more unfixable dents and mechanical breakdowns. A proper replacement has yet to be produced.
Inspiration and Information:

I like the topic pixie trix.. off to space again. =o)
I always thought the way these challenges gave you the chance to choose how the product or design finds a way to do stuff yourself is pretty cool. Maybe instead of doing the draw the shiniest thing you can give a task and show how to deal with a problem instead? I think it might draw some more people into it. Usually i don't upload stuff i do from this, but I'm not doing this because its too tight.
Drew a few sketches for what it might look like..
JellevdVegt: Thanks for the catch. Now fixed.
Arfan: I'm not sure I'm completely getting all of what you're saying so hang on as I try and sort it out. Are you suggesting that perhaps proposing a probelm that requires a ID solution rather than a breif of specs or storyline? I really like that and I hadn't thougt of that! And am I correct when I say you aren't participating in this round because it's a bit too limiting? Either way, thank you very much for the feedback.
Benza: Some strong sketches going on!
would love to participate but at the moment im far to busy with applications to schools. Have to take a leap of absence with ca for a while im afraid.
never uploaded anything before. i hope this thing works... be gentle...
(ps how do i make THIS STUPID THING SMALLER???!!!)
think I got here for you Bray
Bray: Save two files- a working file that is full size a smaller one for online. You can change the images size then check how large it is by douple clicking the zoom tool in Ps. About 600-800 pixels a side is a good size.
thanks benza. im new to the wilds of painter and have yet to navigate its labarinthine nonsense
I drew a quick sketch yesterday and finished today, it was fun to see how my little salvage "bug" get form
I like your design Malaveldt, it has a sort of cool grasshopper/insect quality to it. The perspective looks a little off to me tho in places, you might want to look at that. Benza, like your sketches too, some very nice shapes there!
