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.
Right, I'm not too sure what this is well I have an idea but it started out as a fast speed painting messing with custom shapes and kind of got out of hand, I suspect it's hollow and filled with unimaginably complex machinery and stuff that just makes your head pop, like dividing by zero. Anyway it's some kind of alien relay network, what it relays and to where I don't know just yet. I have a few ideas but my brain fries it's self when contemplating them. Whatever concept I role with it will be rather massive and epic... Like you would expect anything less.
This one took around 3-4 hours and the ships are re-purposed from an older image, it was 5am and I just needed some generic ships to use as scale and movement haha.
Now this one I was painting whilst being recorded by some freeware screen recorder called Camstudio. I tested it before hand but upon completion of this painting I stopped the recording to watch it and it was corrupt. Apparently it's buggy as hell so don't expect any vids from me soon until I find some new capture software. Sorry folks. Again inspired by the forerunners from halo.
Hey Everyone, it's been a while since I posted anything but I'd like to thank you for the barrage of messages you've been sending me hah. I've just started a new job as an in house concept artist so i've been swamped with all sorts of stuff so it's good to paint something for myself. Trying to move into more complex architectural shapes, fun fun fun! For those watching the streams - I plan on getting back to them very soon.
I had the extreme privilege to visit a refinery a couple of months ago and with the exceptional authorisation of the Refinery of Grandpuits in France I had this plate, and couldn't resist turning it into a sci-fi matte painting.
I assure you, the visit was just awesome, I know I know a refinery is not the glamourous place ever but it is just another world. You feel like being in a gloomy scene from Blade Runner movie, with steam, pipes everywhere, noise, and oil smells. I went around 35m up the ground just exactly where the two aliens are. Kind of creepy he he...!
Hope you will like it, this is mostly 2D for I pushed further my painting skills. Basically only the main spaceships have been modelled in Zbrush but postworked quite a lot.
Cheers for your favs and comments! Textures and stocks are mine.
Serving XXth Exhibit ADVENTURE Exploring a new planet, the crew arrived around a deserted place where people built hightech buildings to fight against heat and isolation. The crew discovered an amazing land recalling them of a place on Earth called Wadi-Rum in Jordan.
A traditional 2D matte painting made from three different plates shot by my father above the Alps. No spaceships this time but sorts of insects flying around with a dramatic stormy weather coming around. Original plates are mine, clouds are stocks and painting. Buildings are completely painted, no texture at all. No 3D elements as well. Hope you'll like it! Thx for your support. A close-up version will be uploaded shortly. Here is a close-up version, check it out for more details within the picture.
