Asteroid Mining Vessel

Quick concept playing with the idea of an Asteroid mining vessel. These titanic structures encapsulate an Asteroid, allowing for the controlled demolition and mining of precious metals, while containing the resources in a securely controlled environment.

I created this quick pill-shaped structure using ZBrush Poly-Modeling Brush in order to play with Blender Modifiers, then keyshot textures and opacity maps.
