Personal book project I'm working on. Story of the "Battle of Hayden's Fury", also known as the "Battle of the Burning Sky" which took place in a nebula between the Terran (including mars, and all human colony) forces and the Tor (human name for the aliens as we are unable to speak their name). Illustration shows the Perry J Douglas engaging a Tor "wishbone" heavy cruiser. An F-302 "Cigar cutter" is in the upper left pursuing two Tor fighters.

In the background, the Charles Napier is engaged with a Tor superheavy.

Although both battles are shown, in reality, the density of the nebula kept visibility down to a minimum and battles were fought nearly blind or in "pockets of clarity."

This is also an early point of engagement before the "game changer."

I was inspired by the old TTA books from the late 70's and wanted to create something with more of that feel than the current trends in Sci Fi to make everything look like a bug.

The illustration is all Photoshop.

Looks cool - lots of neat details. You definitely see the intensity of the action.
