Numereji 2421 - concept art
A few months ago, The Brothers Brick announced a collaborative community display at Brickcon 2011: Numereji 2421, a colony and spaceport town built around the wreck of the starship in which the colony founders crashed.
Andrew honored me by asking me to build an "anchor" piece for the display: a big chunk of the wreck itself, out of which the colony has grown. We've been brainstorming backstory and design themes since then, and while it isn't yet complete enough to post a decent WIP photo, I wanted to share this image.
I sketched this on my iPad early in the brainstorming process, trying to get a feel for where I wanted to go. The surrounding buildings and such are just there for context--the 96x96 centerpiece will be these two large segments of the larger colony ship's hull.
