Nova Praxis - Mars Olympus


Badge Awards

Client: Void Star Studio
Type: Speed painting 8 x 5 inches 6 paintings over 3 days
Medium Photoshop - Painted using the Sparth shape technique

I recently got to work on an exciting savage world kickstarter called Nova Praxis which Andree Wallin provided the initial art for, as far as I know.  I'm no where near his ability, but knowing my work was going to be next to his made me try new things.

My favourite image of the lot and the first time I attempted to use sparth shape technique. There was a building in an architecture now book which involved a spine and tension wires to build multiple layers pushed to the extremes a bit but........ its still got two point fixing with 2/5 overhangs , still doable with tension wire like Zumthors Thermal baths if not expensive but meh. As we used to say - 'Its the engineers problem and Mars gravity is 1/3, yeah completely build-able, 'shut up Carl ':D'

It does look appealing. But I think your imagination of this drawing of yours is far richer compared to your actual output. Nonetheless, you've created something awesome. Keep it up!

Thank you, have a nice day.

This would make for a great scifi book cover. Now I just want to play that game and explore this strange planet.

I love that desert lighting! And that speeder racing away too. It looks like an exciting place, very frontierish.
