The Somnaran Sail's main purpose is to spread life, which includes replicating itself on other worlds. The ship drops Somnapods onto other planets- these pods then analyze & repurpose the planet's resources and use them to replicate itself into a new vessel. 
Here we see a scene where Humanity encounters a Somnapod for the first time.
Somnaran Sail

The Somnaran Sail was first discovered by Earth scientists when it entered the Orion Nebula. It was instantly classified as a threat, but soon showed that it's main purpose was to create and spread life throughout the galaxy.

The solar sail itself absorbs light through chloroplast cells embedded in the sails skin. This energy then spreads itself throughout the vessel using the complex vein-like structure until it has been distributed evenly.


Another piece from the Western story 'Descend' - Our hero confronts the last bandit left after the massacre, proposing to make a deal in exchange for information... but will the bandit fight or comply?

Inflatable Dump Truck 02B
First keyframe for the inflatable dump truck, next one coming soon to show it's function when it's fully loaded! 
Was really fun to sculpt this.. Oculus Medium was used for most of the sculpting, then was taken into Cinema for final sculpt and rendered in Octane. Wheels done in 3D Coat, and a paintover in Photoshop. Many more vehicles in the works, hoping to share soon!
