Pre-Infinity Spaceships

Before we did Disney Infinity, at Avalanche, we were working on a sequel to the Toy Story 3 Toybox that was based in space with the main characters all working for Star Command. During this time I drew a lot of spaceships---not something I'm particularly good at---but I had a lot of fun anyway.
We were trying to come up with a design that felt like a more massive, starship version of Buzz's spaceship box from the  movies.

I don't remember what I was thinking here.
I had the idea of making the "town" or hub be the spaceship itself---the bottom one here and the rounded ship in the picture below were attempts to pitch this idea. That concept didn't gain any traction. 

I think this was the one they went with. But it has been a while so I can't remember.
A few designs for the bridge of the starship: definitely going for a Star Trek vibe.

Some Zurg ships. I think the whole concept of using a larger ship level was abandoned before I finished doing the interior layout.
This was a revision/caricature of an earlier design by Jason Kim that was used in Toy Story 3.

  2. I like the one right before the first bridge picture. It looks the face of a friendly lioness.
