Similar Deviations
Organized by Artist
Continuing my foray into a new technique developed by the artist Sparth I began to implement what I had learnt into my normal work flow using a mix of all my usual techniques and I had been inspired by a lot of the Halo 4 concept work that has been released lately.
This one in particular is my own take on a concept piece developed for Halo 4 and it shows several huge forerunner structures piercing layers of clouds, the clouds react to their presence by wrapping around them and climbing the structures. I also added in ship of sorts :ahoy:

This one is a lot more refined than the others and took me around 3-4 hours

A giant glowing orb hovers silently at the core of an alien Dyson sphere, at each of it's poles an array of massive spires seemingly hold the orb in place. What is the orb for and why was an artificial planet built around it? Or was it created there.
The artificial planet holds many mysteries, I wonder where that sun light is coming from, lets go find out.

Inspired by Halo 4 and my own series Telikos Protocol, I have always loved monolithic structures that seemingly go on forever and their simple geometric shape only adds to their scale. I will be doing some more paintings based on this "planet" one being how that sun is generated. Should be interesting.

Enjoy :ahoy:

In the space between planets a huge Fusion reactor was built to satisfy the ever growing need for energy. It creates small stars which it gets energy from, this energy is then transmitted to every world in the system. The power is immense, as new stars are created using a form of laser fusion huge dust clouds swirl and ignite. When the energy form a star is depleted is shrinks and dies in a controlled and harmless way. A convoy of ships approach the station probably to offload supplies and personnel.

This is my entry to the new Luminarium Exhibit themed Energy, always wanted to make a huge machine that makes stars hehe.

Cover page!

sorry this wasnt up yesterday everyone, I had a whole week/weekend's worth of work to do last night. I spent the weekend at the Missouri Writers' Guild's "Just Write" conference. It was AMAZING. For those not aware, I'm writing a novel (join the group #Threadcaster) and I learned so much about craft and promotion... and I might have an agent interested in it too! She told me I need to polish it up first though so I'm going to really put my soul in it for the next few months so I can get it looking really good! I want nothing more than for people to be able to read it and get excited about it (because I'm REALLY exciting about it)

Other news: AnimeSTL is next weekend. This will probably mean another Monday comic next weekend. Any 0051sts coming to the con? I'll be there and you can visit me!

Commission for :iconalpha1ance: as a birthday present for his brother :icontoadking07: whose birthday is today! Happy Birthday Toadking!!!

These two brothers love playing Halo. You can see the look on their faces that they're going to have a great time destroying the Avalanche map... which is the screencap behind them.

Alpha was inspired by a similar commission I did ~AxelHummerwibble [link] for his request. I used the same kind of format but made some different decisions on lighting and such to try and make the two unique, so that Axel's is still very special and I don't want him to feel like I've cheesed him.

Had fun with this, hope you like. :)
I know the lighting in space looks different, I took some artistic liberties.
I just can't sleep peacefully without my daily dose of ambient light!

Every once in a while, Hideyoshi puts a few more hours into his paintings.
Neglectfully, he paints away without proper planning and concept, hiding a boring base in eyecandy detail and colors.
Then he regrets that he did and submits it to DA anyway b̶̶e̶̶c̶̶a̶̶u̶̶s̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶h̶̶e̶̶ ̶̶t̶̶h̶̶i̶̶n̶̶k̶̶s̶̶ ̶̶h̶̶e̶'̶s̶̶ ̶̶c̶̶o̶̶o̶̶l̶̶.̶

the end.

*cough
no 3D base (except for the 3 main buildings), I was struggling with making the boring composition work. There are some scale issues and most of the building design is rather generic.

A quick random speedpaint before bed. I've Tried to achieve some classic 50s sci-fi mood.

Spaceship landing pad in the land of spiky rocks never gets old and it's very relaxing to paint.

Goodnight.

Whew - my first upload in ages! It's been quite busy this year, so I've had very little time to do personal artwork.

This image started as a rough 3D model (created in Lightwave) and I more or less painted over the whole thing by the time I was finished with it.

The planet - orbiting an orphan star adrift in the intergalactic void - is named in honor of a friend and fellow artist. :)

I used some Hubble images as the basis for the distant galaxies:

This is a piece of early concept art for a game project called "Tiberium". It started as a 3D render of a concept model I had developed of the large structures. I did a fair amount of 2D paint work to add the atmosphere and detail the environment.

The aircraft are also 3D design study models.

I worked on this project for several years as Art Director, and sadly the project was canceled when we were well into full production. It's a shame, because it's one of the coolest projects I've been fortunate enough to have an opportunity to work on. ***sigh***

Well, at least I can always look at the artwork :)

I wanted to develop a sequence of images depicting different stages in the Future History of an “Arcology” – defined as a complete city/habitat contained inside a single immense structure.

This seemed like a suitable theme to indulge in my long standing fascination with colossal scale and epic futurism.

The time is indeterminate, but let’s says it’s at least 1000 years from now. Here we see the city at its zenith, home to tens of millions. The whole thing is contained within a single immense dome 70 km in diameter. If necessary the dome can be sealed to protect it against threats from the outer world.

This is the first in a series of images that were originally created for the book “Concept Design II”, about 6 years ago now…

The entire scene was created in Lightwave 3D, with textures painted in Photoshop. The 3D render was modified in Photoshop to produce the final image.

The other images in this sequence will follow in short order :)

For a long time now I have a certain image in my head that I still/yet have to make. The picture we have here brought me a little closer to the image I have in my head. The pic I have in mind is something with a giant huge space port/dock structure. And yes, other artists already have made very awesome attempts on that. But hey, I want my own super cool space port! =D

What we have here is indeed a cool space port kind of thing and I really honestly like the result of my attempt here. I really had some fun playing with the colours. I wanted to go for colours I rarely used so far. So this pic will make a nice addition to my portfolio. I’m still undecided if we have a morning or evening scene in this pic. That’s what I leave to the viewers. Yes the scene is artistically nothing entirely new but I think it just looks sort of soothing.

Technically it’s heavy Vue work again. It started, like so often, playing around with objects and atmospheres. Originally I was thinking about creating a space scene. Then I had this great atmosphere that reacted so nicely with my objects that I couldn’t resist to make it another Scifi cityscape. The rendering happened in various steps again. First the city. Then the clouds. And last but not least the flying little ships. Throughout the Photoshop phase I continued rendering out smaller parts to replace some others I wasn’t to happy with. I still love the Multipass options in Vue. This makes it rather easy to exchange elements.

In Photoshop then happened the compositing of all the different elements Vue gave me with it’s renders. A lot of fixing, texturing and overpainting happened in the next stage. The atmosphere got some pushes too. The final result then really became a moody Scifi scene that allows the viewer to dive into.

This picture is also part of The Luminarium’s 17th artpack release ‘Illuminate IV’. Some pretty amazing and inspiring work there. Info can be found here: [link]

I really had some fun with this one and hope you people dig the view as much as I do!

“Looking down into this mess of a city it looks almost peaceful. A symbol of how far mankind came the last 500 years. All the magic we are able to do now and take for granted. All these amazing achievements. But we’re sill looking for the things we’ve always been looking for. Peace, hope, new goals and a better life.”

This one was part of a short tutorial that is in the current issue of the Advanced Photoshop. It was quite a tight deadline so I used the plate I had from my "Hadley's Hope" project in 2010. In general it's a pretty rough pic. No time for too much detail. Nonetheless it looks not bad I think.

Anyway... the tutorial is about how to insert/replace a sky and make it complement the picture itself. This pic here was my personal approach with more photo/manipulation happening. The mag requested a little more painting so the pic here isn't exactly the one in the mag. More info can be found here: [link] and [link]

Update 081211: Due to print requests I added a print. It's now available.

A massive chamber located at the center and core of the Forerunner constructed Onyx. It served as the only entrance to the Onyx Shield World via a slipspace rift which is only active for a short while after an array firing event.

I doubt this piece is the accurate representation from the book, Ghosts of Onyx. But what the heck, I had fun doing this piece.

More personal work in reference to Halo. A scene showing a Forerunner vessel exiting the inner portal into the interior of a Shield World.

2 hours work. A mix of matte painting, usual speed painting and lassoing techniques. Gotta admit lassoing does makes things more easier.
