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.

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.
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.
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.
i havent create an art for a long time, i had some ideas in head but i guess i am too lazy but i had some time and i wanted to finally create something new, i hope you will like it, especially the cities, they were pain in the ass
Edit : edited shadow, i made this according to this image by nasa www.universetoday.com/wp-conte… it might look strange, but an eclipse really could create that kind of shape
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.
A different attempt this time for a close up planet. I kinda like the result. The picture is available as dual screen wallpaper for widescreen resolution (if you have another setup, just crop it to your liking).
One more collab with my good friend 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 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]
a solar system being destroyed by a gigantic heat shockwave coming from a nearby supernova, burning everything on its path. While some remaning spaceships save the last people from the now doomed home planet.

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!
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!
Originally I wanted to go for a more fantasy like approach and create something with a big fortress. Although you can see parts of the original idea in the setup of the final picture it somewhere along the way took the Scifi route. What we see here is intended to be some kind of holiday resort. A place where people go to have some fun, find peace and enjoy nature a bit. Even though I leave interpreations, about what this place really is, open to the viewer. It’s certainly a nice panorama of nature and technology.
Technically speaking it’s my Vue & Photoshop mixture again. This time though I attacked the creation of mountains with Worldmachine. For the structures I used a bunch of models and reworked them to my needs. Among them a couple of Stonemason objects from DAZ3d.com. These give you a great starting ground for your ideas. I also want to mention *Shue13 who created a model after a concept I did. I used that model for the small flyers, zipping about on the right. I already used that in Foundation - [link] which actually got created after this one here. The bridge objects I mainly created with Vector and the Text Tool in Vue. It may sound strange but hey, it worked. It's sort of the poor mans modeling tool. It's limited yes, but gets certaing things done well. Overall the creation process was tedious but fun.
This pic also made it into last year’s E-On Software Environment Competition finals. Even though it did not win anything, I still think that’s a great thing, and worth to mention.
Hi guys! It's a calm sunrise scene of an Earth-like world and one of the Saturn-like planet's moons! The pic took a lot of time and I focused on it and I struggled with the close up planet a lot actually! It wasn't made by a 3d program and by photoshop! I only used a planet texture to make this and the rest is painting as well ... Ok, that's it and I really hope you like it!
Hey guys! Here's another new work and my mood was for volcanic stuff lately! You can consider it as more like a fantasy one! I started from making the big planet in the middle and it took much time and it was really tiring for me... Anyways, I kept adding, removing and editing during making it. The rest also took much time and I was just focusing on the whole thing! I hope you like this new work XD
Oh hey guys! Sup? I like to present to you this piece ( well actually not just regular piece and actually a wallpaper!) A space scene with a little dark feel and with other stuff going on! Anyways, it took a while to make. I hope you guys like it and if you'll be like "oh this can be for Halloween" then go ahead i would say more in the description, I'm just freaking lazy but again hope ud like it as well!
