My entry for CGTalk challenge "EON:Worlds within worlds". basically it was about creating illustration for featured book "EON".
For me Greg's Bear book is all about finding your way home. Under all of this sci-fi technology future plot is a basic need for everyone to find their own place in life. And so I wanted to capture that emotional message in my picture, don't know if I was successful but i tried :]
This Vertank (Vertical Tank) is named after the Slavic god of beasts. It's the first Mekton featured in "Mekton Mecha Manual Volume One," way back in 1994. It was just lineart in the book, but I colored it in Photoshop recently. (I admit the coloring job isn't all that impressive.) Anyway, this stuff is copyright and everything R. Talsorian Games, no infingement, etc.
BTW, here's a sketch of a heavy weapons variant: [link]
Realized in PS. I tryed to paint the idea of being involved completely in reading, without knowing if the girl is reading or is herself a part of the book... There's a strict connection between the paper and the tree...
Picture made for ImagineFX magazine workshop, issue #34 about painting SciFi Images. Whole tutorial is about how to put story together and how to execute it properly. With screenshots from production and few useful tips :] Hope you gonna like it
Image was done by hand in Photoshop, few references used but nothing significant. Inspired heavy by awesomeness that is Mass Effect
So I've been quite inspired lately to do something other than just creatures and characters (which is what I mainly do during my day job) and work on some environment concepts. AND when I do get to do environment concepts in my day job it always has to have that Greek feel to it. So these are just some personal environment concept paintings I came up with while playing around in a sci-fi world. I had a ton of fun with these.
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.
Another Sci-Fi themed landscape. About 5-6 hours for this one, was struggling in the beginning a lot. I wanted to continue but I decided to call it quits and move on to something more promising hopefully xD Enjoy and thanks for the ongoing support.
This is for #Realm-of-Fantasy's Fantasy Sci-Fi Fusion Contest. ([link]) It took about three hours in Photoshop CS2. This was really fun to make and I discovered all sorts of brushes in the process Should be in Digital Art > Vexel > Fantasy or Digital Art > Vexel > Science Fiction, but I couldn't choose which one. So Miscellaneous it is Widescreen Version: [link] Screenshot: [link] Influenced by [link] which in turn was inspired by [link]
