We were waiting on the concept being near-finished before posting an update and I'm glad to say, it's finally there.
I'll post a few things now, mainly to show what we're going with as our scene's setup and some random things I've done and Dakkon will show his progress on the Aeon's a bit later on in the week.
All the props I show here are all WIP's and are not finished. (Some elements haven't been mesh smoothed, missing pieces, etc).
Here's the concept, based on our story and created by Jared. The idea with this concept is to plan out the composition of one of our beauty renders. Some elements were left out of the concept, as we're going to do those in the scene itself and keep it a bit of a surprise.
Here's a blockin of one of the scenes that Jared pieced together that he used when creating his concept:

Support-arm, highres, 3dsmax viewport screengrab:
Support beam, high res, max viewport screengrab:
Scaffolding, highres, viewport screengrab
Here's an example I put together quickly for how these things may be used to create a 'noisy' background, which is a goal of ours:
Here's the platform that'll be used in both scenes to tell our story, highres & render mesh, viewport screengrab:
