"Oh, that's interesting," I said aloud after reading the comments below about how big this ship is supposed to be. "I didn't see that the ring houses an ENVIRONMENT. Cool!"

Yes, I think aloud, and I also tend to write like how I speak. I'm weird that way (among others).

Nifty composition, and cool title/concept!

Ja-ja! This is one big-arse ship, for sure!!!

Tau Ceti, eh?  Searching for Duran Duran, are we?

Everyone ends up at Tau Ceti, eventually. It's like Harvard Square ;) And if you haven't been there, trust me.... you will :lol:

This is a fantastic picture. How big is the colony ship?
RobCaswell's avatar
BIG! I'm guessing almost a mile long? At least half a mile.

I really like the spaceship design and the general composition of the piece with all these circular shape.
It's really an excellent picture, all my congratulations :la:

Wonderful image sir!  It leaves me to wonder two things about it, neither of which are relevant unless there is a back story involved.  First, is this grand vessel using an ion drive for main propulsion, and second, is she a generation ship?  Just wondering...
RobCaswell's avatar
I doubt she's using an ion drive. Not for interstellar travel. And I don't think she's a generation ship, but she IS long duration (years).

impressive color choice. Who says space exploration required drab colors? 
RobCaswell's avatar
Not I! I'm of the Bob McCall school of SF art. Space is a bright and colorful place ;)
PatternSeeker86's avatar
Bob McCall certainly made the NASA space program epic and beautiful with his great work. Brilliant in so many ways. Keep up the great work!
That's exceedingly cool.

Tau Ceti, eh? Legacy of Heorot/Beowulf's Children, perchance?
