Bi-atmospheric concept plane 2 by GDSWorld Bi-atmospheric concept plane 2 by GDSWorld
This bi-atmospheric plane was designed for my university project.

Its a futuristic cargo plane with swept back wings and jet engines.

Brief was to design a believable plane and render it on an existing movie/ game background.

I chose Battlestar Galactica as the background.

The moon belongs to: [link]
Edit: Thanks for all the comments and critiques, I've added some shadow to the near side of the plane. Changed the t-tail and i've also handed this in.

So you can now download the A3 size for full view. ;)

First off, this is a major step up from your usual work, I hope you can continue to push this envelope.

The fuselage looks good, a hefty cargo/passenger liner, not the most luxurious but not a junker either.
The angled tail piece isn't very clean or functional looking, I'd be a fan of horizontal parts, or some flattening out of those angled tips.
The biggest issue though is the main wings, it took me a while to figure out the near wing was not a downward keel (which would still be an interesting asymmetrical design). As it is the pair of wings don't match, nor do they look like they could provide the needed lift to get air borne.
To better meet the requirement of it being a believable design I would follow a more conventional jumbo jet, shuttle, or 'flying wing' type. You can change up their angles, but the amount of wing surface they achieve is what you're going for.
Minor note, the supersonic wave looking effect doesn't look plausible in space, but it's still cool :D

Woow! amazing and stuning effect. It looks as the spacecraft is going to pass over you!
The realism of the space and planet and the detail of each light of the craft makes it look impressive.

What I would recommend you is to put more shades in the back of the machine. That would make it more solid.

You could spread the cloud a little bit more in the upper part and the underside ang give the motor more light power. That would make it earn speed

Also put some more stars and violer colours (for nebulas) in the space would not hurt ^^ whith this effect you would win more detail in the background.

Well... hope i helped you a little bit with this critique.
Keep practicing and you will have breathtaking artworks!

The material strength of those wingtips must need to be astronomical.

no pun intended

True, I definitely need to do more research on these things
Cheers ;)
