I headed up the environment design team at Image Engine for the Elysium Project. The core team members on the design effort were myself, Mitchell Stuart, Ravi Bansal and Ron Turner.
I contributed design direction, keyart, keyframe paintovers and blocking layout models.
The image to the left is the Syd Mead Study for Elysium, and to the right is one of his early studies for NASA from the 1970's. It was these two images that formed the base for the ring designs.
