[Map] Hive Scout

I’ve supposed to draw a map of an organic ship for months already, but a few weeks ago I gave it a shot. This was not really in my comfort zone, as I’ve never done anything like this before. This is a saucer shaped ship that has bioluminescent lights pulsating…

[Map] Orca-class light freighter

[Map] Wrecked Spaceship

This is a quick map I did to test the idea of vertically built spaceships and it was kind of inspired by The Expanse tv-series and one of its spaceships.  So, in other words, this map was made hard scifi in mind – no artificial gravity except for rotation or acceleration,…
