Along with the rover there was a brief for a flying vehicle that would be able to transport peeps from low orbit to the surface. It was to be a pretty classic dropship type thang. Oops I mean thing!
I started with these pencil sketches...
...then painted up some quick variations based on the director's notes and selects.
Another round of feedback and a bit more development.
Ruairi drew over a couple and I painted back into 'em resulting in these^
One last variant I worked up that I kinda liked.
I'm not sure what it ended up looking like in the film, this stuff might have all been binned for all I know. Was fun to draw though!
