Flight to Wayland by Angelstorm-82 Flight to Wayland by Angelstorm-82
The WIPīs are over now! Finally! This is the final drawing of my Imperial Star Destroyer (Allegiance class) :D. This drawing took me almost 2 months of hard work. I donīt know how long in hours, sorry. I used several references to make this drawing come alive. As first the amazing Star Destroyer [link] originally created by Ansel Hsiao (Fractialsponge). I used also a reference of him for the Imperial shuttle [link]

As first I started with the Destroyer and I thought I would get nuts drawing this beast. But later I decided that the Destroyer itself would look boring and so I added some planets and a Nebula. My last add was the huge planet in front (Wayland). I got the idea to all this as I remembered one of my favorite novels from Star Wars EU. The Thrawn trilogy ;). Who knows the novels and - or the comics will know what Iīve drawn here ;).

The drawing itself is 1/3 larger than A2 (my biggest since over 3 years) and all is done entirely in graphite. The starfield was created with some kind of white gel pen.

I hope you like how this one turned out. I really like it thatīs for sure.
So last but not least watch it in fullview and become nuts :evillaugh: :).

WIPīs can be found all in my scrapfolder and you can also watch a short video on Youtube [link]

Thatīs all. Thanks for looking and everything. Allan

PS: The planet is slightly inspired by the Mars.

Wow it got a Daily Deviation :wow::faint:. Thank you very much ~Stevebot-7 and *bloknayrb for suggesting it :). And many thanks to^Voyager212 for featuring it.

Daily Deviation

Flight to Wayland by *SilentDeath007 Suggester says: "More than just being technically impressive, the amount of dedication required in crafting this is truly amazing. His gallery is full of other equally impressive works that deserve a look." Also suggested by *bloknayrb ( Suggested by Stevebot-7 and Featured by MacRebisz )
:iconscifiwarships:
Hi Silentdeath007. First let me congratulate you on a truely stunning piece of art. If I had the funds I'd buy it of you. How you've captured the depth and feel of space is quite stunning. I also want to comment on the way you've played with the light. These thing you master perfectly. I do think though, that you should have been more aggressive with the shadows. If they were darker the ship would jump much more out of the paper. I realise that the soft shadows are so because you want to show the immense detailing, but if you hid some of it in hard shadow and instead put some lights/windows in the darkest parts I think this would truely stand out. Also it seems to me that the perspective is off. The right side of the superstructure is way longer than it should be, and the angle of the bow is a little wrong. The choice of angle shows real courage though, because getting perspective right with such shallow angles is quite hard. I also want to comment on the composition which I think is very good. There is perfect balance in the picture. I look forward to seeing more of your work, well done!

The Chimaera.

Grand Admiral Thrawn is a fantastic character, and C'boath a good one. 

Fantastic series, and wonderful art. Well done.

(Curiosity question, have you read the two part sequel?)

I hope Ansel Hsiao will give us models for the Defender-class Assault Carrier, the Majestic-class heavy Cruiser, and the Warrior-class Gunship.

Also I hope he redesigns the Liberator-class Cruiser, the Dauntless-class Heavy Cruiser, and Bulwark-class Battle Cruiser.

Star Destroyers have such a strange and hard-to-capture geometry to them, I'm a tad envious of your success in doing so!  And Allegiance class, too.  You don't see too many of them around, do you?  Especially not in this level of detail!

A stunning piece of intricate artwork! I really like how you rendered the entire scene. I have a few critiques if you don't mind. 1, The Star Destroyer itself is just an amazing piece of art that it doesn't need the smaller ships around it. 2, The large planet on the right is a bit too bright which is contrasting with he Star Destroyer, it's as if the ship is wedged into the planet. Less contrast on the planet and a bit more subdued in brightness would pop the Star Destroyer out much better and it would throw the planet a further back. I did a quick mock up of what I mean. Otherwise, I love it!
