Joining and Submitting

Anyone can join the group. Join requests will be automatically approved.

Submitting art:

In most gallery folders, sketches will be accepted, if there is a good description of the displayed thing. The description can be included in the image or in the image comments. The focus is on the idea, not primarily the execution of the art.

This particularly applies to the "materials" folder, where you can submit designs for future materials. These materials require a somewhat believable description of the material. It doesn't have to be hard science, but it should be something that a person can accept as a well-thought concept.

Submissions with a dominance of weapons, war machines and fight scenes will not be accepted. This groups has a focus on the peaceful side of future.

The limit should be set to 5 deviations per week, and deviations will be reviewed. If the limit doesn't work as expected, please drop me a note and I'll look into it again. Also, please be patient if it takes a while to review a submission, at times I'm visiting dA only infrequently.
Recently I was designing a spacecraft and the question came up, how to shape the underside of the craft. Originally I had planned a flat surface, to make landings easy,  but I got a suggestion, that some weapon turrets should be there too, not to leave the craft defenceless on that side. My immediate idea was to use retractable turrets, to keep the underside flat but then remembered that in some sci-fi novels ships had no landing gear, but were resting on a sort of force field of force cushion instead.

With that, the shape of the underside is pretty irrelevant, but I'd suspect that the force cushion needs a constant supply of energy, so the whenever there is a problem with that, the ship will crash and take damage, while a physical landing gear has passive safety and will keep the ship in place even at a total power failure.

Ah well, just some random thoughts and finally one more journal entry for the group ;)

You should apply to an architecture contest with this. It reminds me of the protection of a snail shell while still being very futuristic. I like the composition a lot :)
