New image from the graphic novel Telikos Protocol, visit the Facebook page to find out more: [link]

Whilst working on one of the pages this image stood out as being too awesome to keep under wraps until issue one is released, so we decided to throw it out there.
It shows two of the orbital rail gun platforms that orbit Earth used to safe guard it from asteroids, they are very big and very powerful. Enjoy :)

The latest illustration for the MMORTS game Novus Aeterno. Having spent the last month or 2 working on ship concepts and skins it was nice to break loose and paint another huge space battle. Since we have new models for just about everything now it made sense to paint an updated image.
The foreground ships consist of some Dreadnoughts (the tall big things) a few Battleships (Smaller vertical ships with an angled lower section) 2 Basilisk Capitol ships (the 2 giant things in the top left and bottom right corners) and a Laminar Capitol ship (the large ship just above the massive explosion firing off a lot of rounds)

That big explosion was caused by a rather well placed shot by the top left Basilisk right down the barrel of an enemy Basilisk, the resulting explosion was pretty big. The other Capitol ship in the right lower corner was quite lucky compared, a distant Manticore Capitol ship, which is a huge prototype laser cannon with engines, just grazed the ships sides, melting away layers of hull and ripping the shield.

Enjoy :ahoy:

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:

Condamned to exhile, a population completely left the earth to live inside a giant metal orb from their own conception and technologies. A new extra-nation in orbit rose, able to control their own artificial planet they live into.

This is another version of my previous 'The Terminal' artwork but this time in 3D and much more developed.

This is also my humble entry to Ballistic Exposť 10. Btw you can join me on CGsociety and CGtalk @ [link] , I would be glad to have you in my network over there too...

This is another terrain I designed with Vue 9, spaceships modelled with 3DSmax, and all postwork done in Photoshop CS3 to make everything more lively, realistic and full of details.

No hidden Jedi this time guys, dont waste your time ah ah but quite a lot of little things, lights and stuff here and there.

I had lots of fun doing it and should pass onto something different next time!!

Thx for faving and commenting this piece.
Your support means a lot to me.

:horns: to all my metal buddies!!!

It's been a while since I did not make a matte sci-fi scene and here is "The Terminal".
This one is fully inspired by a French artist I discovered in the following book in french (sorry...): [link]
It's Paul Chadeisson I should credit him for the composition and the brushes he kindly shared, check out his website: [link]
Have a look at his gallery, it's really good.

Nevertheless, everything has been fully made by myself, no like for like elements. I added many things, details and textures.

Here are the stocks I used, mostly for the left part of the plant:

All the rest has been painted or from my own stock.

Hope you guys we'll like it.

Nothing special this time. Just a classical scene like my older image "The Ring" only with a different attempt for the ring this time. Not planned as wallpaper this time but it is included as little extra to the premium content download. The download contains 20 HD wallpaper + Windows 7 themefile.

I hope you enjoy it!

This is a remake of the first part of my little "Future Earth Series". Looking on the old image forced me to try a new version that is more up to my today's standards. The old image can be seen here:

This one could be seen as a sister project to my 'From Here I Can Almost See The Stars'. I basically used the same city scene, along with a few changes. Originally the picture was created to work out some material, I could use for chapters on a German workshop DVD (more info), I got invited to do. The energy spheres and ship engine trails for example. I previously used energy spheres, as a detail in my work, and really liked how it turned out. On the other hand I wanted to experiment with a darker toned atmosphere. Work with harder contrasts. Which turned out rather good in this picture.

You could say it's another generic scifi cityscape scene. Nonetheless I hope the lighting and perspective is at least something that stands out in this one. As usual I used Vue to create a base of operation. Several separated renders helped me to get in all the elements I wanted. A lot of Photoshop then helped to get in the details, that make this picture look alive.

It does look like a place you can easily get lost in. And our guy there is probably thinking the same. But I'm sure he knows his ways around this place.

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. Iím still undecided if we have a morning or evening scene in this pic. Thatís what I leave to the viewers. Yes the scene is artistically nothing entirely new but I think it just looks sort of soothing.

Technically itís 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 couldnít 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 wasnít 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 itís 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 Luminariumís 17th artpack release ĎIlluminate IVí. 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!

What we have here is a picture that I would consider a quickie. A mashup of my earlier Scifi cityscape pictures. It still took a while to get it done but the general composition was set very early on and kept throughout the making. Normally I tend to sometimes drastically change elements of a picture even within the making. Always depending on how good things work out. Sometimes you have to work out things and look at them, to fully understand if something in a picture works or not. Had not to do this hassle for this one. Instead I did a lot of finetuning, especially in the front parts. The city I kept rather basic without investing too much time and detail on it. Just wanted to keep the background more rough. Slammed some textures and lights on it. Does the job and creates enough depth for what I wanted. Something that works really nice here is the sense of business/goings ons that a city like this would generate I think.

Technically it's, as usual, Vue to create me a base picture to work on. In Photoshop I added quite a load of textures and made them fit somewhat nicely within the scene. I added masses of lights to suggest even more detail. The lights required some time to place them good in the scene. Then I tried to add a little more depth with some atmospheric glow and haze. Overall it works good enough for what I had in mind for the picture.

The docked ship in front was originally a concept drawing I did a while ago. My french Luminarium colleague Sebastien Hue managed to create a nice 3d model from my rough drawing. I did manipulate and overpaint the ship quite a bit for this scene to fit in good enough. But anyway, a big thanks to him! Pay him a visit here. You'll see some variations of that ship in future works soon, that's for sure.

One more collab with my good friend :iconskillzombie:
I enjoyed so much working this piece out. It brought me back to my first steps on space art.

This was the starting point for me: [link]
So as you can see :iconskillzombie: made that awesome render, and I did all the rest: planets, color, contrast, brightness, the sun, the clouds, asteroids, all the trees, and shore rocks.

I used these stocks from Resurgere for the clouds: [link] [link]

Hope you like it! :D

:omfg:!!!!!:bulletred:PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS IMAGE TO SEE MOST OF ITS DETAIL:bulletred:!!!!!:omfg:


update (11/06/12): one of my fellow deviants alerted me to a flaw to the top left of my image. the nebula had a sharp cut off in it. so i opened the psd file and manually brushed in some more nebula to remove the cut off. i also brightened the nebula and added a colour layer over the entire image to help everything blend nicely. so sorry about that.


LISTENING TO THIS TRANCE [link] + VIEWING THIS SPACE SCAPE = EPICNESS!!!:omfg: (i did not make the trance, but kudos to its creator!)

hello everyone!:) so i'm sorry for having to make you guys wait, but i'm sure this makes up for it! my 5,000 pageviews special, more like 5,100 pageviews, but no biggy, i always deliver my work when it is needed!;) so thank you to all my fellow deviants, followers and friends for all your support comments, favs, etc.!:) without you guys, i would have never made it this far! so thank you again!:D
_____________________________________________________________

i call this work, Corundum! well, it should really be called blue-corundum, which is actually sapphire, but the tones aren't deep enough.
enough off that and more about the scene! :

its definately one of my more fantasy works!:)
larger moons that are placed more randomly!:omfg: not common in my works!
large star illuminating the nebula!:D oh, and i tried a new star brush too, to make my stars look more like the ones commonly seen in space art! looks better too!:D
a little meteor shower on the nearby moon.;)
moon and planet with city lights. :omfg:

so yeah, i really tried to make it look more unique and sci-fi amongst my other works, which are more science oriented. the scene is a little monotone though. it could probably also use a little more contrast. maybe even a little more features could also be included. but other than that, its definately a greater improvement from most of my previous works, mainly that its more sci-fi!:) and also that it looks better! i also love the angle, really suits it, don't you think?;)

_____________________________________________________________________________________

comments and critiques are always welcomed and appreciated! and again thank you for all your support!:D
