Illustrations and diagrams

For the second book in the Astronomicon series, I am attempting to develop a new and hopefully useful skill. As well as creating and writing the story, I am going to also going to create suitable diagrams, possibly to be used as illustrations within the book, but more likely to serve as decorations and useful diagrams for this website.

View Across Fish farm - Europa Mining FacilityAs you can see, it is very early days yet, but hopefully I will be able to model some of the key locations within the book and provide a whole new experience for visitors to this website. The diagram above is a view across an underground habitat serving a mining facility on Europa (one of the Galilean moons around Jupiter). The habitat is designed to be mostly self-sufficient, producing its own food and power, whilst protecting the miners living there from the high radiation levels present on the surface.
