My keyframe submission for the Artstation challenge Grand Space Opera: Light Age! :) It was a fun experience, but I ran out of time on the last keyframes. However, I learned a lot and it was great to see all the creativity and amazing work from other contestants.
Short background story that I wrote to help me brainstorm ideas.
-Humans landing on Alien Planet
-Humans delivering goods to Alien planet
-Aliens showing “city tour” to a few humans
-Aliens giving shelter to humans after Earth destruction
-Aliens and humans building a portal on Exalon to connect Earth and the new planet
I chose the last one and thought it would be interesting if humans met aliens on their planet, formed a friendship, and decided to build a portal that connects directly to earth, and would allow them to travel there faster.
In the year 2099, humanity has achieved multiple outstanding technological innovations. The world has changed, and a group of the brightest scientists, internationally known as “ NUM” has achieved what seemed impossible, a way to enter “lighting wormholes” that can transfer the aircraft into other parts of the universe that was not reachable for humans before. An international team of the best astronauts, scientists, and troops, who have been trained for the mission, travel the newly designed ship by “NUM,” which has been created with new technological innovations. The spacecraft Arka 99 is immense in a size and has a military/defense unit, a garage that holds 2 small spaceships, 4 rovers, living quarters, 2 labs, a space equipment unit, and the main area for meetings. Arka 99 enters the space, travels to the nearest “lighting wormhole.” It launches two of the small aircraft to enter the pathway that pulls them inside, and launches into further parts of the universe, approximately 2000 lightyears away. The small aircraft that is carrying two people, sees a mesmerizing view. They send a contact to the mothership Arka 99, saying that they see a new planet, and ask for further instructions from the team leader. The Arka 99 decides to move the ship into the pathway and try to see if it’s possible to land on the planet. Arka 99 lands on the alien planet. The humans move closer to the aircraft windows and observe the beautiful Exalon landscape. They have landed on a stone structure that resembles a landing area for aircraft. The humans wait but notice a movement of figures outside. Humans leave aircraft and are approached by an alien race that appears to be peaceful.
