Star of Arabia by Abiogenisis Star of Arabia by Abiogenisis
Completed in the closing decade of the 21st century, the Star of Arabia was a joint project of the Arab League and conceived as the most exclusive and technologically advanced tourist destination in the world.

Construction was handled primarily by Chinese and private US contractors, who had access to the heavy lift vehicles necessary to carry the vast components into low orbit. Once built, the internal nuclear power systems were installed to circumvent the need for aesthetically unsightly solar arrays.

This artwork was commissioned by Australian Geographic and featured in their July/August edition.

Nice! I still have a bunch of the mags from the 80s, so it was an honor to be in one :)

Beautiful clean artwork and fantastic design.  Any tips for keeping this clean?  Did you mock up in 3D?

I didnt mock this up in 3D, though I often do for mechanical objects like this.

I keep it clean by using huge image sizes, and doing the final details zoomed right in close.

really cool designs, and it's nice to see used a more original "faction" than the usual "west-usa / east-russia-china" :P I want a sci-fi scenario with Switzerland as a major space force! :D (or Italy, but that is really too much sci-fi xD)
