Decided to take a little break from client work and make something for this Diablo contest. If I would've had more time I might have done something a bit more elaborate. But due to lack of time I decided to do a pretty simple portrait thing. Thanks for looking! ♥
So after getting much helpful critique and looking over the image some more I went about reworking it, this was the outcome, I saw the new star trek movie and that actually helped a lot with revising the lighting a bit and adding more distinct lens flares haha.
So basically its a big alien ship firing onto a planet and making a huge shock wave that disintegrates most things in its path like poor hospital ships evacuating the planet bellow, it also erases the planets surface turning it into a desolate ball of rock. The idea is that the aliens go around and "save" planets from the civilisations living on them, they decide if the race is exploiting its resources and harming the planet by doing so then if they are they wipe the slate clean and let the planet start a new. Kind of a more violent version of The Day The Earth Stood Still.
This was an illustration I did for a Blizzard contest earlier this year. I'm not real big on fanart so I tried to really make it my own and tone down the iconic Blizzard style and go for something more natural and cinematic.
I'm a huge fan of RE series and played the 5th game to death! So I took on this challenge of creating an illustration of the RE movie's executioner about to sandwich this character I created. I wished I had more time though haha, didn't realize the deadline was today.
I started this last week and I probably spent 25-30+ hours on it. Intuos 4, photoshop cs4
