Horseshoe Laser Pistol
I don't often design weapons, but I saw a piece of luggage on an airplane whose handle reminded me of the laser pistols from the black hole, and so the Horseshoe Laser Pistol was born.
Ship Jumper Logo
A bunch of variations I explored before deciding on the final ship Jumper Logo (I picked #11)
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.

Landis and Inc trying find shelter before the final rays of sun sink below the horizon. Continuing to refine my more painterly style.


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.
