lol I'm so clever it's ridicilous... some ship dodging missiles. Or missiles dodging a ship? A longer speedpaint tho, maybe around 4 hours or so. Seems like I'm getting slower,, maybe just getting older
I had time to make one more before client work kicked in, so happy! It's so much fun to do some personal stuff once in a while, especially when getting so much positive feedback from you guys. It makes it 10 times as funny!! I'm really glad you liked my D9 tribute!
Prolly spent around 4-5 hours on it, photoshop cs3. This guy has been playing some grab ass with his robot buddies at the office.
Remnants of a scout platoon are deperately fighting their way out of an encircling
enemy when one scout rider sees their drop ship coming to their rescue.
I was sketching ideas and ended up with this. Note nearest scout is pointing up
at ship with right hand.
I got permission to post my storyline art that I did for a game called Söldner X 2: Final Prototype. developed by Sidequest Studios in Germany. These are the edited versions (not my final ones which looked pretty different for some of these) that appear in the game for the Playstation 3. This ship design was provided as a 3D model by the studio which I simply composited and rendered in this scene. Most of them are a mix of 2D and 3D elements.
The 2999, Mankind has come so far in the last 1000, learnt so much and changed, living in peace on Mars and in huge space stations. Their technology turned towards a cleaner future to preserve the planet they now called home, terraforming technology meant Mars fast became a place of salvation during the worst climate turn Earth ever had in the late 2100's. Mankinds constant use of fosil fuels and strip mining finally caught up with them, the Earth was changed far beyond repair no matter how much they changed, instead of fighting a losing battle to save Earth with their early terraforming technology they decided to leave the planet to its fate and a mass exodus was started, huge station held many millions, many more moved onto the Martian surface, too many where lost to the Earths hostile state. Now at the dawn of a new millenium the changed people decided to celebrate this monumental time by sending their latest technological marvel to Earth, a fleet consisting of 5 huge monolithic ships, together they formed the Genesis Rising fleet, a Terraforming fleet using advanced terraforming technology beyond anything mankind could have imagined. Their mission, retake Earth, a process taking 7 days, turning the planet from a hostile, dusty, lifeless world into a new eden, a beacon of hope, a monument to mankinds will. A new dawn has arrived, Genesis has arrived. -------------------------------------------------------
New image for the new Luminarium exhibit "GENESIS" a different looser style was used for this image, all painted using custom bruses and my usual collection of textures and some cloud photos.
Part of a commission for a game I am working on, cant say much other than I can show you this and 2 other images that I am to do each depicting real world aircraft, the other images I can not show you as they will be top secret until the game is wither launched or details released.
This is an image showing the great Chinook troop transport coming in for a fats tactical drop firing off a few rounds, set in a desert lots of dust is thrown up.
Under no circumstances are you to use this image for any purpose.
Whats this? no stars, no planets..... no space, is this really an image by me? Well yes, Ive been practicing with matte painting for a while in my own time and this is an image I decided to do after I thought I had practiced enough. Due to the resolution of the image, 7000x4000, A lot of the elements had to be hand painted to keep up the image quality. The main cloud formation was done using some 50 cloud images and some hand painted areas. The ground again is mostly photos, the shard is all hand painted as are the jets and the red and blue cloud areas and lightning. The planes where especially hard, I had referance photos of the planes which I used to get the shape and used as a referance to get the details right.
This is basically a concept for a movie idea I had based on my last image, Shards, the concept is what would happen if they came to earth, kinda War of the Worlds meets The Day After Tomorrow, I will do some more matte paintings based around this concept over time. The cloud is based around a super cell and the bottom is based around volcanic pyroclastic flows.
Anyway enough chit chat go look for yourself
