Hail of Bullets by ErikShoemaker Hail of Bullets by ErikShoemaker
Another space apocalypse. I am a dummy! A poor planet shattered by a comet shower, or maybe some extraterrestrial force?
Made in Blender+Photoshop. Hope you like it!

:wow: This is ultra cool! the comet shower is a cool idea! + full hd 1080...the best! Im completing a sci-fi work in 1920x1080 because i love this topic. the shattered effect is very realistic and indeed this could be easily the scene of  some videogame

Thanks a lot mate! 3D was really useful in this work. :D I probably couldn't have painted it that well from scratch. Thanks to the 3D base the work in PS was quite simple as you can see in the animation: orig00.deviantart.net/5661/f/2…

Great steps!
3d help, i know how it is important...but if you know how use it :D and indeed here is used very good
Of course this also reminds  the final effect when in star wars the Death Star destroy some planet.....and indeed you could develop this concept to create something of similar....PErsonally i don't know works where there is an huge battle ship destroying a planet...and around DA is full of images ready or complete or ready to be modified as we want..........and you could fix this lack easily thanks the concept of this work!

I've been so inactive, I don't know how I've missed this! I've always wanted to do something like this. Love how you combined the blue and orange in it. :D

thank you man! The blue and orange is a classic actually. It used to be really popular in manips too, but maybe that was before your time. :D

I wonder what it would be like if such a thing were to happen here? We all have to go eventually.

not my favorite way to go though LOL, you don't even get to witness the spectacle unless you manage to escape to space beforehand.

True but it might be painless and almost instantaneous if it comes from the direction of the sun. A more incredible sight would be to have a rogue gas giant planet swallow up Earth whole. It would be as if the Earth never existed. Have you ever painted such a thing? We would probably be able to see the planet approach but things would get interesting once it bears down on us.

Great job on this one, I personally find it interesting that you left out the part where the comet clashes to focus on the outgoing explosion, something for the viewer's imagination to work out. Also very nice work on the shattering parts...
Seems like you are doing good with Blender too. :D

Haha I guess I am. xD I've done this type of scene a couple of times already so I thought it could use a little twist. Glad it's working! And no I'm not really doing anything more than following boring blender tutorials. :D but I'm slowly getting there eventually.

Rowye Featured By Owner May 7, 2018   Digital Artist
Heehee well, this is not er.. too bad for a tutorial lol. ;) A good way to implement it, at least.
I'm getting into Vue these days, and I still haven't found a tutorial that wasn't boring. xD

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner May 10, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Just to clarify, the tutorial I watched was on how to explode a coffee cup using a blender plugin. So there was at least a little effort involved on my part by applying what I learned to something else. :D
Actually, the blender tutorials aren't that boring at all, it's just the software that is a true nightmare to learn. :D
Vue definitely seems interesting. I know it is great for landscapes, so it might be a good thing to get into to step up your matte paintings. The reason I started studying blender was that I wanted to learn how animations work and blender seems to be a pretty versatile tool overall. But eventually I realized there was a whole new world to learn first before I could get into the business of animating things. :faint:

Oh I was sure you didn't just leave it at the tutorial and a lot more happened in the process. ^.^
But yeah I used to know Blender until 3.0 when they changed the whole interface, I couldn't be arsed to re-learn. :s But probably should some time, free powerful software is to be taken advantage of. :P

I put my money on that, too. ;) Although, I've heard a theory from someone that the sole reason for aliens to come to Earth would be to harvest our resources. It does make sense to me. There would have to be some incentive behind their actions. Just destroying things out of the blue seems unreasonable for advanced civilations...

Thanks so much Dani! I feel like it could be super easy to include 3D in manips, I just have to study it a bit more. It could help with strange poses etc A LOT as well.
