A.R.K. Starship

To the stars! 

The 8-hour space station to save humanity

So I must say, I was relatively disappointed when the boss announced that he was no longer going to direct a movie based on the evacuation of earth to a ginormous space station-come-starship orbiting the planet.

A let down to say the least, but now I had a pretty neat example of what I could make in 8 hours or so!

Without further adieu, I present to you some images of my "Ark" Space Station.

It consists of around 500 thousand polygons.

I wasn't explicitly told to detail everything (I'm sure in the long run it's probably not a good idea), but these little details help to tie everything together.

Here's a quick texture of the solar panels on board the Ark.

Above: The Ark's gyro machines.

Below: The engines of the Ark. 

I'll try not to make these too long. Thanks for viewing.


  1. I was looking for maintenance of the power plant. Fortunately i find this blog post............ .. Solar Panel

  2. Wow! Wish I could afford to license that. It would be perfect for Gahye's Hope, the ark from my novel Orphans of the Void. That's the only piece I don't have for the cover illustration...
