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 I´ve 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 that´s for sure.
So last but not least watch it in fullview and become nuts .
WIP´s can be found all in my scrapfolder and you can also watch a short video on Youtube [link]
That´s all. Thanks for looking and everything. Allan
PS: The planet is slightly inspired by the Mars.
Wow it got a Daily Deviation . Thank you very much ~Stevebot-7 and *bloknayrb for suggesting it . And many thanks to^Voyager212 for featuring it.
first of all congratulation man on stunning artwork .I really love that you use star wars as one of my favorite movie as your them for this drawing,and that you spent a lot of time to draw it ...On this drawing the only thing thhat is a little bit bad is a this light in up left corner it seams that you dont put as much efort as in oahter parts and that is that other stuff are apsolutley amazing.I totaly love how you draw destroyer its so detail and weel shaded, stars are aposlutley stuniing to and the planet.my eanglish is little bit bad but you get the point this is one of best drawings that iv seen on devianrt so far and for end I wonna say good work and keep draw like this and make a lot of drawings like this in a future ...<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Smile)"/>
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!
Well I always imagined that the allegiance Initial design was a proof of concept similar to how the Tector during the closing years of the clone wars was for the imperial class. Once the ship was approved eventually a technologically improved variant would come down the road retaining the blistering firepower with the addition of a ventral hangar. A real world example I'm going to use for this would be the changes of the Americans Arleigh Burke-class destroyer. The initial variant only had a landing pad for helo operations but eventually was given a type 2 refit supporting its own dual hangar setup.
did you learn drawing by yourself or you entered an art-school ??
since when you have been drawing ? and what tools did you use to draw this beast ????
hope you answer my questions
