When we finally colonize Mars, what kind of buildings will we be able to set up there? Veteran concept artist John Eaves designed some great-looking structures for John Carpenter's underrated film Ghosts Of Mars. That lesbian matriarchy appreciates strong lines.
The crux of the job was architecture and a whole load of props. What you see here on day one is the establishing look of a Martian Mining community. The buildings were to have the look that they were dropped from a mold and have a gritty adobe type finish. John's point on the designs of things was distinguishing different places by the shadows they cast. After showing him many renderings of various buildings this was kind of the conclusion I came up with in how I would draw each structure.
