In my spare time, I have been working on this small spaceship. The idea was to create Low Gravity Utility Vehicle – designed to do different work (maintenance, survey and surface crew support) in low gravity environments – like on moons and asteroids. The ship has excellent maneuverability thanks to 6 variable vector thrusters and integrated high power Em-Drive for extra lift.

The ship is designed to be operated in different conditions – including tight spaces between rocks, like in asteroid mining operations. It has protective frame for the cockpit and external bumpers. The cockpit has excellent visibility due to large windows.

Main tools used for this are Blender for modeling, animation and rendering, Substance Painter for texturing and Fusion for compositing.

At the end I decided to create a small AD for interplanetary mining corporation.
