A quick concept study for a civilian transport vessel. A bit of background fluff, as a typical example of the vessel lands on the prime world, Tarsen, acting capital for the trans-galactic Utopia of Mankind.

:.Tarsen FC, Orbital shuttle Nidenmo, you are clear on landing vector Zed120 Yott32:


:.Nidenmo, Tarsen FC .Copy that, final approach 300 meters off the glide now .Wonderful weather werren havin':

:.Yea, blame the xenoforming stations for that one .Someone decided to finaly increase atmospheric depth:

:.Is like soup out there FC, the floods are having trouble with it:

:.Best get used to it Nidenmo, in a cycle werren having a three kilometer increase in breathable gasses:

:.Solid Copy .Landing now:

Hey D..Your art as always is fantastic...Lemmie help you with your radio garb...

Real world ATC states who they are talking to first, then who they are then what they want...for example, Denver center would call American 101 like such..."American 101, Denver Center, contact Kansas City Center on 135 point 26."

A vector is an assigned heading. ATC does this for traffic and weather avoidance and for distance separation or putting traffic into the lineup for landing. Headings are given in compass degrees and altitude changes in thousands and hundredths. So in your example it might sound like:

ATC: Orbital Shuttle Nidenmo, Tarsen Flight Control, descend and maintain two thousand five hundred and turn left heading 120 to join the final approach course. Cleared for the RNAV approach to pad 6. Contact the tower now on 118 point 7."

Shuttle: Nindemo is cleared to join the final on 120 and call the tower now on eighteen seven, so long...........Tarsen Tower, shuttle Nidemo with you on the RNAV pad six approach."

ATC: "Nidemo, Tarsen tower, cleared to land pad six, traffic at your 2 0'clock, an ore shuttle at 3000 ft descending to one thousand one hundred ft, niner miles. Traffic has you in sight and will remain clear of your approach. Welcome home!"

Shuttle: "Nidemo cleared to land pad six...tell Loola to have our table ready at the Last Flight Pub!"

Yea, my own radio chatter is based on one ATC guy in my shop, and our own usage of radios....but i was out of the USAF for a few months at the time of posting this image (1 SOCMS EWAR Heavies). XD

I mostly tried to keep it short, for the sake of brevity. Not many people read descriptions, on this website thing.
Thanks for the correction, though!

Zed, and Yot actually just refer to 'Z' and 'Y' on a Cartesian coordinate system. The air traffic controller is giving him a landing vector to come in along.

Heh, I'll get around to drawing environments when I actually have the motivation for them. The heavy industrialized areas that this scene would require take a lot out of me, and I don't want to just upload crap. I love you guys too much for that.

yeah, i understood that you meant with "vector" a landing direction, the whole string was just too encoded. Learned something new. Im more the skyrim-player than a home world guy with sexy paralyze laser-gun. Ah! =)

And no, i meant natural environments , without technical installations. This would complete your skills and be a nice "break" pause to explore some planets, maybe add some installations later, else things get pretty hard. I remember you drew much more scenes in the past - i still like them - tho, they were all spaceship environments.

I actually did draw the planet where the Nidenmo craft lands, a while back. It never got too far, because I got my account suspended a day after posting, and I sort of lost motivation.

Also, I did this one too. Not a single hint of construction in sight.

Yea, it's a nice break to draw landscapes, but its really hard to get motivated to start these images, much less finish them.

'lol' is generally a shorthand way of saying you're laughing. I was just curious as what you thought was funny.

Excellent stuff as always - I love this very much - love the detailing, (especially the neon purple - mwah!).

The writing is excellent.

Just wish there was a backdrop to this - aside that - superb! :D

The arcs are from the non-Newtonian drive arrays. It's sort of their distinctive effect of disregarding laws of motion. v__v

Maybe some day. The fog is pretty thick on that planet now. Damn planetary engineering projects, why do you need so much atmosphere.

Unlimited acceleration does have an appeal. Shame the squishy humans inside can't stand all those gees. If only we could remove the weak link.

Down with humans! The rise of the maschinenkorp is now!

Thanks! Gotta love Homeworld for getting people aware that you can have more than steel grey in a scifi setting.

Thanks! The blocky functional aesthetic of that movies art direction presses all my buttons. Greg Broadmore, David Meng and Leri Greer create such stunning designs.
