Outer Docks by aiRaGe Outer Docks by aiRaGe
An android/human- dude is enjoying the beautiful, fantastic view as an transporter ship starts to a long journey into space.
The 'planet ring' is some kind of an city, built around an planet.

Finally some 'real' Space art from me. Having some free days now, i finally had the time to finish this work i started months ago. Around 40hours went into this piece, the result is a mixture of textures (planets only), a little bit of Photomanipulation and a lot of paint. I know, perspective is a 'little' screwed and the painting isn't my best, but i'm quite satisfied with the outcome :nod:
Your feedback of any kind is highly appreciated. Thanks for viewing and maybe having a closer look :)

Very amazing work. I love the details in the planets and the design of the space station. The station looks like it has a bit of Babylon 5 architecture in it, although I can't quite place why. A nice piece indeed.

This was very inspiring.
I found this piece on another site and tracked it back here.
Really got me going this morning and I had to write about it.

Thanks so much for the inspiration.
Incredible work.

Hi There! :wave:
You have just earned yourself an O.D.D.(oibyrd's daily devs)feature :winner:! congrats! :clap:!
TODAYS THEME - Science Fiction Special
ODDS (oibyrd's daily deviations) are to honor the sometimes overlooked artists of dA that I personally think deserve some exposure and also, to introduce the more popular artists to the new/overlooked deviants. I prefer to showcase ALL artwork that I love (and that includes popular artists with a fair amount of traffic to their work) in order to create a non-biased feature of the talent on dA. Please click the link below to see your work featured and to view other featured artists . If you prefer not to be a featured artist, just send me a note and I will remove you from the list. Cheers! Sandi xoxo :heart:

Beautiful detail. I love the atmosphere, it looks realistic. Another thing I really like here is the realistic quality of the stars in the distance. And also you made a cool looking glow in the right that looks like a galaxy. Awesome work!
