Concept Art - Docking bay planet side

I've been reading 'The Dispossessed' by Ursula K. Le Guin and I was reminded why I love Science Fiction so much. I remember reading C.S. Lewis' 'Out of the Silent Planet', the first few pages were really amazing. I remember thinking that Lewis' description of the unknown plant as pure magic, it was a place unlike our own. The gravity, plant forms and how things interacted on the planet were completely different to other Science fiction I had read. It was conceptual, creative and original. Another book that gave me that same sensation of consciousness outside myself was 'Dune' by Frank Herbert. He created outside the norm and established a solid and believable place with almost everything so different from our own reality. 'The Dispossessed' is taking me to that same happy place, familiar yet strange.

This concept art is a quick delve into some thumbnails I had done previously. I wanted the ships to be unconventional, just exploring things visually really, this will form part of the library for the project and be part of my ideation process.
