"After the destruction of a large metheor a planet is bombarded by thousands of "small" fragments. The pretty far advanced inhabitants desperately try to deal with this problem. But even while the remainings of the asteroid approach slowly they are numerous and hard to destroy without creating more debrie."
I hope that made some sence Once again a contest piece. Terraspace, a big theme with even more freedom to create whatever you want. In this piece i created a few planets with terragen2 (yes all planets are terragen 2 in this one). Added some 3d elements and blended it all with some photoshop flavour. I made this one in 1920x1200 especially for those that have large monitors. it makes a good background
I'd love to take credit for the entire piece but the spaceships are not mine. I found those on [link] So credit for those go to their creators wich can be found in the startrek and star wars sections.
It was fun creating this piece. For the first time in a long long time i felt like i was doing something i didn't do before. I love tg2, it enables you to create stunning scenes. So everyone that hasn't tried it, YOU SHOULD CHECK IT OUT!!!! Well that's all from me. Tnx for watching, i hope you like it
You've met the girl of your dreams. It wasn't just a fling. Things are going well. You talk about living together. Then she wants you to meet her folks and before you know it, you are on the other side of the galaxy...
Finally finished. Not enough time to do a better job of layouts, so this will have to do. Hopefully the detail isn't all lost at this scale.
The Minmatar Ballista was basically created as a long range rail gun, capable of snatching small asteroids from their orbit and flinging them across solar systems at a fraction of light speed. Not useful against fighters, but extremely effective against objects in stationary orbits, as long as the right vectors were calculated. If they wished, the Minmatar could toss rocks at planet-side targets of opportunity and effectively annihilate ground-based resistance in the blink of an eye.
The ship, however, is not well shielded and extremely slow, requiring most of its guts to be used for powering the massive electromagnetic rings and then dumping the immense heat generated by firing the projectiles. Its only ammunition is found in asteroid belts and reloading entails essentially moving on top of another rock and initiating a long firing sequence. Suffice it to say, rate of fire is low. But destructive.
Creative commanders have been known to also use the Ballista's mass driving capabilities to toss smaller ships across the system at high speed in order to put stealth ships behind enemy lines or small corvettes or fighters into the middle of a fray, quickly. Those ships better have made sure their inertial dampeners were on-line, however, otherwise the incredible g-forces would turn the pilots and crew into unidentifiable stains on the wall.
The mighty and towering Earthturner. Seldom does it surface from the center of the earth, but when it is disturbed it erupts from its slumber, obliterating anything on the land above. Its origins are unknown, although it is said the Earthturner was created by the Land itself when it was young to act as its guardian.
I am currently working on a Water colossus for the RIFT Create a Colossus contest (I think it will be about a week before I finish it 5/26/11). But since this piece seems to please the crowd, I've decided to enter The Earthturner in the contest as well! Wish the Earthturner luck (lest ye be destroyed by its power)!
Edit: My second entry, Eagreed the Tide Keeper, is here-
The Sibyl is a project I am currently starting development on where the end product with actually be a written novel. I do not want to give very much away, but I can tell you these are the four main characters (Aron, Tahlia, Tzalmon, and Darrach). This is a book about prophecy, corrupt politics, and of course, destined love. This Project is going to really tax my patience. Writing a book, let alone a book series, is not easy. However, since I teach character development at the Art Institute and I am a graduate student currently (I am only 24 people), this is something I am passionate about. I want to show people that creating with purpose gives so much more meaning to a work more than just designing to design.
This is character art for the book. Beyond writing it I am doing a series of character art and the book cover.
