This mechanical space whale was the main exercise from my Prop Design month (May 2020). I was very excited about tackling both mechanical objects and sci-fi, two things I really like but don’t usually draw. I’m very happy with the concept and the whole process (which you can see here on its entirety) was very fun and rewarding. (There’s a lot to improve, but for being the first spaceship I ever make I think it deserves a pass!)
