Cities in the sky by PenUser Cities in the sky by PenUser
High above the dunes of Meyer's Waystation, a terraforming colony, the AISC Deepspace Horizon releases a few Overseer-class light carriers from its drydock for planetary defense before continuing on to its next destination...

Hello!

Here's a little something I've had in the works for some time now since I wasn't sure if it is even worth finishing. Decided to finish it anyway even if it was just to practice painting backgrounds. ^^;

In the picture we have the AISC Deepspace Horizon, a massive carrier/bombardment platform deployed by the military conglomerate Ares Enterprises. Central in the pic is the large rotating section which houses drydocks, shuttle docking ports and all the equipment a massive invasion army would need. You can actually spot a few shuttles leaving dock just left of the section- the little white specks against the red sands below. The shuttles themselves are not small, so maybe that gives some estimate of the scale of things here, hence "Cities in the sky".

More info on the ship design:

Of course all this scifi-jargon is related to my ongoing comic project, Requiem, of which you can see many page samples and such in my gallery.

Enjoy! :)

Very cool, really like the use of the gradient for simple highlighting and definition!

I've wondered if astronauts get a fear of heights while spacewalking... probably not though.

Thanks! :)

Something like that, maybe around 90 yards in lenght or so. Like the title says... cities in the sky.

Thank you! :)

The rent is sky high, but you can't argue the view is great.

Indeed. Though the "rent" for most on board is their military service contract... but those views will be well worth it!

Thanks! :D

No ei se kai ihan- vähän kyllä harmittaa etten tätä tussatessa käyttänyt enemmän viivoitinta...

Kiitti! :)
