Inktober 2020 - Day 15 - Outpost

Inktober day 15 - Today's prompt is "Outpost," and I was kind of stumped at first about what to do. I only really think of two things when I hear the word "outpost": a military facility far away from the main base, or a space station. And given my love of sci-fi, I obviously picked the space station. 🙂 The only problem was...I have no idea how to design a space station. 😳

I tried to come up with something that looked at least somewhat functional, with places for ships of various sizes to dock, a main "body" with several decks for rooms, cargo bays, main thoroughfares with market areas, etc. I even added a biosphere dome at the top for growing food and generating oxygen. My biggest problem, though, was trying to make it *not* look like Deep Space Nine (I mean, it still kinda does, though, to be honest... 🤷‍♀️ ).

I wasn't that excited about this one most of the time I was working on it, but once I finished it, I actually wanted to make a print of it and go over all the green parts and stars with glow-in-the-dark paint (and I may really do that eventually).
