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 !

An excellent ship.  Do you have any more views of her than the two?  Is there a site where we can see the original concept art?

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 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?

O-Kay. nice line and shading, like the details (even the background shadows) and the photo style-but It looks like a Gas guzzler.

This is wicked. I love it when scifi models are placed into real scenes. If the shadows of the CGI model were a little darker due to the bright daylight if would be icing on the cake. Good work.

The first thing I noticed about this was how 70s it looked. It has something of a Star Wars aesthetic about it, like a Star Destroyer's little cousin. :p

Either way, it's great work, both in terms of design and your modelmaking abilities! :meow:

Thanks man , actually the "Freedom" concept illustration was initially first created in the early seventies before Star Wars it was for a failed TV pilot series , by Simon Atkinson he was the creator of the hand dawn illustrations for the plans of the space ship Odyssey in the movie 2001 Space Odyssey.I brought his "Freedom" vision into the 3D realm.He is quite happy with the outcome .

This work is impeccably brilliant. It left me looking at it in my watchlist wondering if it was a physical model or superb CG work. Amazingly, it is the latter. Your skill is far from being in the range of the common CG crafter. You're headed for leaps and bounds that the cutting edge workers in this artistic field has reached. That is if not even higher. The detailing of the spacecraft is just remarkably stunning. As good as the work on actual movies and shows. My apology for being heavy with the use of words, here.

Fav'd, as you should know.

As long as you use the talent here for inspiration rather than competition, then you're doing it right. So, definitely know that. As well as know that you are upper echelon bound. Tis truth I type. Definitely, you're welcome for honesty.
