Interview with Big Bad World Of Concept Art

Eliott Lilly from the Big Bad World Of Concept Art website did an interview with me, it's available in 3 parts here:
Eliott is the author of a book about breaking into the video game concept art field for publisher Design Studio Press, I gave it a read a few months ago and its a great book of tips for students trying to find their way. Check it out here: http://bigbadworldofconceptart.com/buy/

God Robot 1 Defends

"I was just about to put my cup to the wall when the ground shook under my feet, sending me backward onto the dirt. It was as if the building had come to life."

Megastructures 2 Space Elevator

A Space Elevator is a system for transporting cargo from a planet surface to orbit without the need for large rockets. It consists of a cable (tether) that extends out from the planet into space. It is anchored to the surface of the planet, and the other end is anchored to a counterweight (possibly a space station or asteroid) positioned past geostationary orbit. The cable would allow for a vehicle, called a climber, to travel from the ground to space and back again, delivering cargo or people into space. The force of gravity vs the force of outward / upward centrifugal force would result in the cable being held up under tension, and stationary over a single position over the planet. Depending on the gravitational pull of the planet the Space Elevator is anchored to, the cable would have to be made of a material that has a very high strength to weight ratio.
