Megastructures Update #2 Feb 2020

Welcome to the second official Megastructure Book Project Update! For those new to the project, Megastructures will be a visual encyclopedia of scifi megastructures, everything from orbiting space habitats to solar system spanning stellar engineering projects. Each structure will include a scientific explanation, followed by paintings and diagrams that bring the concept to life.

The project is going well, with a lot of progress since we last spoke. The goal is to have all the artwork done by the end of 2020, and focusing on publishing it the following year.

In November, 43% of the artwork was completed. 3 months later, we are now at 62% done! In those 3 months, we now have finished art for the Polyhadral Habitat, the Orbital Ring, the Discworld, the Topopolis, the Space Farm and the Hoopworld. 18 structures to go!

We've also added 6 guest artists to the list, who will contribute 10 structures. Will give you a list of these artists in the coming months.

No art sneak peak this month, want to hold back the art until we get closer to the end of the project. But I'm excited to show some new work, as well as the awesome work of the guest artist contributors. Thanks for following along, we're really excited about getting this book complete!
