Drawing-a-day :: Ringworld

Image of a ring obital or ringworld.

Drawing-a-day supposedly featuring an Orbital as in Iain M. Banks’ Culture novels, as seen from many kilometres above. Obviously the artist is out of practice!


My assessment: not legible; poorly executed tonal work. I need to do more observations of landscapes.

Idea for future illustration: it would be cool to do an image similar to this, but showing the dark-side of the Orbital/Ringworld in the foreground lit up by city lights, with the length of the orbital stretching out to view the distant side glowing in day-light.
