Here is the design for a starship design that my main character is tasked to complete whilst on a journey towards a weeks holiday. I took reference from my other images such as the patterns and symbols.and used them in this image. I created a theory and basis behind these circles and lines and why they are in a lot of my sketches. Here is the passage explaining what the symbols mean, ‘
When I was growing up with my parent’s’ he began to say, ‘I was always so fascinated by the designs on my bedroom wall, they were so fluid, so majestic in their forms, I wanted to know where they came from. One day whilst my dad took me to the edge of the city, I looked up at the decaying monuments that stood tall and noticed that they bared the same markings as my wallpaper. So I asked my dad what they meant. He told me that many years ago, before the cities, there was an old race of people living on this planet, these symbols and markings represented words and letters so that different tribes could distinguish themselves from each other. As I grew older, I noticed that the same markings began to appear on my tail, my father told me that these indicated my name and the names of my family before me. I have been fascinated my them ever since and asked my dad for books so I could learn what the symbols meant for myself. This all stopped when I went to live with my uncle, but my love for these markings never stopped. That is the basis for the design of my starship; I wanted to incorporate these traditional symbols with modern technology. I wanted to put my heritage and new love of buildings into this design and feel that I have achieved that’
I used photoshop and collage for this image.
