Picon Size Comparison

The Picon is a legendary ship of the Terraxian race, built to haul huge amounts of cargo to and from their ever-hungrier homeworld. It’s made to haul entire an planet-worth of resources, so, as you’d expect, other ships are dwarfed in comparison. Save that big one at the bottom there… that one defies a word to describe it’s size. But what is it? Maybe in a future drawing…

This blocky, asymmetrical design has actually seemed to stick (not so much for the other ships being referenced there). Something about it feels just right – and makes a good style reference for other types of Terraxian designs. (Bonus – can you notice what I did wrong in showing the different angles? I went years without noticing myself…! Augh…!)
