I created a picture of a space ship that diverges a lot from science. What word I use to describe this divergence? “Stylized”? “Fictionalized”? As in, “_____________ artist rendering of space ship.” Thanks.
What about if you reorder the words?
Artist rendering of Fictional / Fantasy / Stylised spaceship.
Pick one. It’s not necessarily your rendering that diverges from sciencitic principles. It’s the design of the spaceship. If I understand you right, that is.
Fantastical, but I think I agree with @Wendelius about the word order. “Rendering of a fantastical spaceship.”
High concept, conceptual, transcendental etc
You could also name the style, “Artist rendering of a retro-futuristic spaceship.” Or steampunk/ dieselpunk/ old-west" whatever.
Here is the spaceship:
Is it retro-futuristic? I don’t know.
I dunno what you’re doing with this thing, but maybe imply there’s a story here? “Rendering of the Colony Ship ‘UNN Mary Poppins’” or, “Interstellar Exploration Vessel en route to Cygnus-238” or whatever. The art style itself seems just straight ‘futuristic.’
No, there’s no story. It was intended for GearHead RPG but I didn’t interpret the developer’s description properly.
Artistic interpretation, perhaps?
Yes! Thank you.
That doesn’t imply that the ship’s design diverges from known scientific principles.
It is a start, though.
Fantastical does! Come on, every time someone used it I get a commission!
FYI, it doesn’t have to be a single-word term. Multiple words are okay.
Well then I don’t know why you don’t just go with, “artist’s rendering diverges from established spaceship engineering principles and/or known science”.
That’s good, too. Thanks!
