Cryo-Chambers 1080 by GarretAJ Cryo-Chambers 1080 by GarretAJ
Ancient history lesson 3: The Sleepers

I created this image for The Mandate Kickstarter. Take a look www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

The barcodes and sterile light tubes convey that the sleepers will be tended to by machines, while the angles and construction style practically scream "far flung future". These are good and reflect the feel of the Mandate.

However, the vision is somewhat conflicted, I couldn't tell whether this was to be on a starship or in an underground facility without looking at the Kickstarter videos. The story says starship, with mankind fleeing from a dying earth in desperation, but the display conflicts with that vision. The hallway is incredibly long and without much segmentation. At the same time, it is very wide, which speaks to comfort of accessibility for the squishies, but the walls lack stairs for them to actually access the upper pods themselves.

I understand that the display is meant to convey "large populations fleeing through space in cryosleep" and segmenting the hold with airlocks or squeezing the hallway together would make it difficult to present.

Conflict between theme and presentation aside, the piece speaks to the presented game style, that of a space opera of massive scope, quite well.

This could the population of a deep space survey ship or something...or perhaps even the barracks of a space warship. Nice lightning effects, really conveys the silent atmosphere in the depths of the Cryo Chambers...
