Different is good

This new ship by Leigh Holcombe (Worker201) is good evidence of that. The shape is very unusual for a space craft (or pretty much anything else). While I love to see color on a space ship, the complete absence here gives an interesting effect. We’re forced to focus on the unconventional shape of this craft, as there is no color to distract the eye.

This creation makes me think of Bruce Lowell, who told me that he often prototypes his creations in gray, to work out the shape. He then builds them again in color, to get things just right. I’d be curious to see what Leigh could produce with a colored version of this ship.
