This is my interpretation of a heavy-lift spacecraft that would be used around asteroids and dwarf planets to aid in large scale construction projects.
The inspiration for this project comes from a combination of real life crawler cranes, real life spacecraft such as the ISS, and near future science fiction like The Expanse.
For the model, I'm using a rougher, more free-form modeling style that allows me to iterate on ideas much faster than if I was creating every part with subdivision and all-quads - I'm treating Blender almost like a CAD software while modeling, and making use of bevel modifiers to give roundness to edges. This results in topology that isn't appropriate for most cinematic or game applications, but works well for these still renders.
