Aristarchus concept by NikolayAsparuhov Aristarchus concept by NikolayAsparuhov
So I recently watched Oblivion and really liked the Bubbleship and the concept work of Daniel Simon, so I wanted to make a vehicle design of my own, that is inspired by it.I also really like using the sphere as a fundamental form when it comes to sci-fi.
These are some quickly done drawings that helped me clarify the overall design and basically show the general proportions, silhouette and stance of the vehicle.Later on I will probably do a detailed painting of the vehicle, using this concept.

Very cool, I think I may have a og at creating this in 3d if you don't mind.

It is well thought and well presented... Anybody created a model after this?

Thank you :) Yes, actually someone did make a 3d model from this recently and it turned out really cool. Sadly I don't have any online gallery of this person.

Oblivion was an awesome movie! I really like how you incorporated aspects of the spider and of the scorpion. Well done. This is awesome.

wow how matrix like vehicle or very spider like. can that think climb walls or just walk/skitter over the floor?

I suppose hard terrain won't be a problem for it.I doubt that it could climb a 90 degrees angle wall, cause that would be silly, but something less steep for sure.

Ground pressure looks like it might be an issue, in addition to stability and weight distribution. Considering that you have a relatively efficient flight propulsion system, you could probably get away with plain old landing gear...

(If I were to do something like this, it would probably look more like an attack helicopter's forward section on four stubby legs, with a drone garage/attachment point on it, and possibly stub wings to mount weapons or utility pods on.)

Yes well I also thought that weight distribution could be an issue while on the ground, so that's why I decided that the engines that are on the back of the cockpit, could work as suspensors to balance out the weight.Also I don't know if it's very clear, but the only thing that can fly is the cockpit (sphere).Basically if it is on the ground and has to fly off, the engine section rearranges it's position and the cockpit detaches from the leg/engine section.
Obviously this is a very hard thing to design and there are probably tons of mechanical flaws.I could probably do 3-4 more of these concept sheets and not have most of the things figured out.

Hmm. You might also end up with a more teardrop-shaped hull and fighter jet-style bubble canopy, with the legs retracting into the fuselage in flight. The drone would just be payload. This would leave you with two things that do their respective jobs well and are more flexible within their roles. The VTOL pod could handle anything that fit into its payload compartment and thus be used for a variety of tasks with little modification, and the drone could be deployed using other systems. On the other hand, I don't think that would fit the desired aesthetic too well, so it's up to you.
