I started with the cockpit, aiming for a different design. As the model got shaped I was using more angular bricks and plates within a close environment to make it sufficiently solid, leaving no room for a longer or sleeker shape. So I went vertical in what eventually looked most like a peculiar bathysphere, which looked fairly nice from the top half.
