Astroneer Present Pod
Ben hewer benhewer art test 2

The Present Pod in both its open and closed states.

Made for an art test at System Era games. The prompt was to design a new base module for their game Astroneer that would facilitate asynchronous player interactions. The idea with this design was that it would allow players to launch anonymous gifts into space that would then crash on other planets for other players to find. This was made in a single sitting, about two hours from initial sketches to final render.
