Inc Logo
A little blast from the past. Before we chose our final logo for "The Story Of Inc" book project, a lot of logos were tested and discussed with the team. Here's a bunch of Logos that didn't quite make it.
Megastructures 12 Nicoll Dyson Laser
Speculative Fiction Reviewer James Davis Nicoll first proposed the Nicoll-Dyson Laser as a weapon where the satellites of a Dyson swarm surrounding a sun act as a phased array laser emitter capable of delivering their energy to a planet-sized target at a range of millions of light years.

The laser could do anything from wiping out the atmosphere on the target planet to cracking the planet in half depending on the focus of the beam (a collimated beam would be the diameter of the Dyson sphere used to generate it, whereas a focused beam could be more concentrated). Other factors that could effect the beam’s intensity include the size and energy output of the sun surrounded by the Dyson Swarm, the efficiency of the swarm’s solar energy conversion, and the amount of time the laser was pointed at the target planet.
Inc Coral Desert Wandering 15 Rough
Landis and Inc trying find shelter before the final rays of sun sink below the horizon. Continuing to refine my more painterly style.
Inc God Robot 2 Final Battle 1 B
Inc and Landis are unprepared for the wrath of the second guardian. This is a good example of an image designed for a book, where the middle of the image is left mostly blank so that the painting would work well on a 2 page spread.

Eden Habitat 2
Experiment 2 showing potential designs for "Eden Habitat", merging architecture and nature into a future utopia. This island has been built up into a futuristic castle of sorts, a giant ant hill with people and apartments on the outside, and an interior geofront for industrial purposes. Decided to go with a semi cloudy day, the sunlit with cloud shadows look is always difficult to do, hopefully I managed to make it feel natural.


ArtOfSoulburn's Profile Picture
Neil Blevins
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
United States
My name is Neil Blevins, and I've been an artist as long as I can remember. Raised on a healthy dose of scifi and fantasy films, books, and videogames, I started off painting and drawing traditionally, and then got into computer graphics while living in my hometown of Pointe Claire, in Quebec, Canada. After getting a BFA in Design Art at Concordia University, I moved to California to work in the entertainment field at companies such as Blur Studio, Pixar, and my own freelance studio Soulburn Studios, creating concept design and production art for video games, animated and live action films, commercials, TV, and ride films. I have worked on projects such as The Incredibles, Wall-e, Up, The Good Dinosaur, and many others. I primarily focus on alien environments, futuristic robots, and scifi vehicles, but have created art and designs for a broad range of genres and subjects. I also make narrative art books, create digital art tools and write art related lessons and tutorials to give back to the community who's been so gracious at helping me get to where I am today. I currently work at Monolith Productions in the Seattle area.

I'm very interested in your megastructures work,will you make some artwork of the construction of the megastructures?
ArtOfSoulburn Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Glad you like them. Do you mean stuff like blueprints? That's a distinct possibility, for the book there is likely to be a few more diagrams.
michael432 Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2018
Not just the blueprints,but also the construction site.
ArtOfSoulburn Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Ah ok. I have a few paintings showing their construction (mostly the dyson sphere stuff), so stay tuned!

Fantastic gallery. Makes me think of The Expanse series
Keep up the great work
