Space Siege Concepts/Ship Design

Here's a couple of pieces I can show from the last project I was on - Space Siege. The ship is called the I.S.C.S. Armstrong and as you can tell from the scale of the Eiffel tower, it's huge! This is a ship designed to be a deep space colonization ship.

I had in mind that a person could be born and die on this ship without ever stepping foot on a planet surface. The atrium centered at the 'eye' of the ship could hold the Eiffel Tower inside it. I have some concepts rendered of those too that I will post later when I'm allowed.

Thanks Bill. Yeah the idea would be analogous to a pier extended off the back of the ship that freighters could load and unload passengers/resources without having to risk collisions with the main ship. The gantry could tow them inside but ships would not vector into the Armstrong via their own power. Once connected to the gantry they are at the mercy of the port authority.
