Artwork and Banners for Lunatics
Moon Shuttle Model
Animatic model of the Moon Shuttle (LTS). The Lunar Transportation System is the cornerstone of the United States' lunar logistics in 2040, and provides almost 100% of all resupply requirements for bases run by USAF, NASA, and ESA (very much like the role of the US "Space Shuttle" with respect to Low-Earth Orbit in the 1990s. Additionally, many of the components of the ISF colony are LTS-derived (some, like the fuel-cells and tanks are actually refurbished discards).
This is a quick model I designed to use in creating storyboards and animatics. A more detailed and somewhat redesigned model will be created during production which appear in the actual series.
Briefly, the components in the above animation are:
- Service Module (Unmanned)
- Aerobraking Shield
- External Tanks
- Transfer Module (there's more than one type of these, a passenger module is shown).
There is no separate "command module" -- the pilot controls the service module from a dedicated console in the Lander cockpit. There's also a brief turnaround animation of this model.
Model sheets for the colonists (main characters).
Model sheets for personnel at USAF Iridium Station (secondary characters).
Walk-on / Extras / Generic characters.
The "Kazakh Boy" refers to the use in the train scene at the beginning. We'll re-dress this model to make the "Street Interview Boy" and probably any other boys who appear in the pilot. Can't really use an adult model for those.
Coming soon: Generic male and female model sheets. These will be "mix-and-match" style sheets we can use along with proportional stretching to generate various background characters for crowds, and walk-on characters.
