Another Traditional Tuesday upload! My first assignment on the project was to design the Pod in which Kal El escapes the destruction of Krypton as a baby. This one had the additional complication of doubling as the spaceship Clark uses to return to Krypton at the end of the movie. (wait... didn't he just say "Destruction of Krypton...?") So part of the assignment was making something convertible, essentially fixed with a removable "baby seat." Production Designer Owen Patterson had a clear idea of a chrome teardrop for the ship, so I started with that as a loose direction on which to build so as not to evoke the design from "Flight of the Navigator." Ultimately Owen had me strip anything extraneous from the silhouette, leaving us with the pure uninterrupted shape of the final design.
