Unearthing Architecture

After completing the Leoptiofis Oracle, I thought it would be a good idea to go with something different and design a space ship. I see I haven't posted any of the work I did on that, and there's no time like now to amend that, so here's the preliminaries, thumbnails based on sensing organs, from an eyeball and tongue to the inner ear and olfactory sensors:

I dug up some environment thumbnails I started a couple of months ago, of a temple on top of a floating island, part of the Leoptiofis project, half of which are in the following image. I added more thumbnails to see if I can come up with more ideas, picked a favorite and fixed some of the perspective (which still needs work) and threw some colors on it.

Going to keep working on it.
As usual, I have also continued doing a speed paint everyday, here are some of my favorites from the last time I posted:
