06.03.23 - SHIPS IN SCIENCE FICTION STORYTELLING

Updated: Jun 6, 2023

Today we are going to look at technology. The Scavengers Elite is first and foremost a science fiction story (the more correct term would be space opera, but that's another story for another day.) and a super hero story second. Today's sketch of the day is a close up exterior view of a Beldron jump shuttle. Sitting in the cockpit is the Princess Arannis Rann. These names don't mean much to you now, but the important thing here is that things have to look right. So this is a good guy ship. There are no hard and fast rules that we have here except for one, well two things.

  1. The good guy ships and the bad guy ships must both be recognizable fairly quickly.

  2. The two kinds of ships should be easy to discriminate.

What this means is that the audience should be able to look at one of our ships and know within a few seconds what kind of ship it is, good or bad. This helps to avoid confusion during large space battles and so on and so forth.

Here is today's sketch of the day.
