Another book cover for "Fabryka Slow" , second part of this image [link] . I was trying to create post apocalyptic mood without destroyed-city-in-the-middle-of-desert look, because I did it already and I don't like to repeat myself Dunno if I succeed thou... you will be the judge
"It was the third year of Dominons War, and we were all tired. So when we left our warp bubble 2 Megaklicks from 47 Ursae Majoris C, we didn't waste our time. MI's reports looked promising: the target planet was inahbited by civilization apparently on quite low tech level. You know, no space fleet or orbital defence stations, no nuke-powered battle platforms, poor Mom Earth-worshipping dum-arses...
Agricultural society, I mean.
It was almost too good to be true.
At 2040 hours Commander commenced attack on their biggest city. Heavy Colonial Fleet Battlegroup: 40 shuttles with infantry, 12 CAS squadrons, 4 carriers, a dozens of support vessels. Commander thought she was smart, cause MI folks told her the farmers down below would have some kind of religious festival that night. Well, they had. And our visit really pissed them off.
53 minutes later, our last Kiev class carrier hit the ground and exploded. 75% of our close air support crafts were also destroyed, and lucky survivors had to pull back. But the worst thing was, it took just three people to wipe out our troops. We dubbed them 'priests' afterwards, cause of - you know, divine powers they used against us or something - but we haven't really grasp their position and role in the farmers' society.
Yeah, divine powers. Don't laugh. One pilot rescued by Medivac boys told us how his plane was ripped in half by flying girl. Other reports mentioned her and her friends, hovering over our carrier - just before it's armour was penetrated and cooling system damaged by, as we were told, meteor shower that came from nowhere!
That night we've learned our lesson. I learned it pretty well... ."

This litte story shows you pretty much wats going on on that picture I did it for CGTalk chalange Spectacular.
Dont let your eyes fool you - thats no angel. When aliens decided to invade us - they knew what they are doing. They came as holy createures to rain panic among our troops. And they succeeded. Picture is showing one of the first battles that took place in Israel. Angelic squads literally wiped out first response teams. With bioactvie liquid armour and plasma nanofibers our troops were no match for them. And so prophecy came true... the end of days from heaven... has come...
To be honest I finished that piece few days ago but i was fixing little things every now and then and finally said - thats it. So here it is. Hope you enjoy it ;]

Another book cover for Polish publisher "Fabryka Slow" And yeah adding quotes to an image is a bit corny but I like It. I usually have one song that I listen the most during picture painting and I though its kinda cool to mention it as in my head its completing the image
Another book cover for publisher "Fabryka Slow", something Blade Runner inspired. Background is kinda mattepainting, characters thou are made from scratch. Few references used, nothing significant thou
