Oneill Cylander by TheArtofSaul Oneill Cylander by TheArtofSaul
This painting was really fun freelance project of a sci-fi cityscape floating around on giant panels, had to do a little research on what an Oneill Cylinder was because I never heard of it and I am a huge fan of sci-fi. Love getting lost in these worlds.

did any inspiration from this derive from rendezvous with rama?

This is beautiful.  I think I like your cylinder more than the Bioware's.  The inclusion of artificial lakes and topography is something I always thought was missing from the Citadel.

Because the Citadel IS an Oniell Cylander which is a theorized self sustained massive city that would be rotating for gravity and floating along in space with panels for city along with water etc. An old idea from the 70's and was used in Gundam along with Mass Effect and other sci-fi inspired projects. :]

and that new movie, Elysium

do you think that the Oniell Cylinder is even possible to construct? or is it strictly science fiction
