Freedom Concept by Palantion Freedom Concept by Palantion
Original concept sketch was created in the 1970s from Simon Atkinson a well know designer illustrator from the UK one of the actual designers of the hand drawn designs of the space ship the "Discovery " from the movie and novel "2001 Space Odyssey" and "Blake 7". Simon gave me special permission to recreate his concept model called "Freedom" from paper to CGI with my own flair , i believe the concept was for a proposed
TV pilot in the 70s that never aired . Zoom on in for the detail.
Thanks for stopping by . Michael

Below is a link of a rear view clay render of the model , i wish i could have incorporated it into a scene !

Nice one!

Perhaps it could be connected to some larger & heavier cargo container?
Looks powerful anyways!

Wonderful art and concept. You could imagine NASA in a few hundred years with some ship like that. You did a fantastic job.

VERY COOL! you could write stories about a ship like that!

I would call the ship FREERUNNER!
and it would be a fast cargo runner that is always running into
problems from the cargo or the passengers it is carrying!

what do u say i try and write a store store and use your pic as the cover!

drop me a line if you think thats cool

I really like this ship design. Looks like a workable prototype. Great job.

I absolutely love this design! I am curious though as to what that is on the bottom of the ship. It looks like it could be a weapon, but I'm guessing it has something to do with the engines?
