Another painting that started as a vague idea.
I wanted to have a few soldiers manning a laser turret or tower, shooting at alien spaceships attacking their city.

Painted in little over an evening, no reference used, 2-3 layers.

Ask for permission before using this image for any reason.

Photoshop and wacom intuos 3 tablet.

Ironically, those ships look a lot like "the Merchantman" from Star Citizen; one that is designed for commerce and peaceful negotiations.

nice work! but is it just me or does the black ship look like the great fox from the starfox video games? if you don't know, it's okay.

Now that You mention it, yes!
It does have some kind of resemblance to the pointed
spaceship in the old Super nintendo/N64 Starfox game :D

Very cool! Love the black spaceshipts and the sense that this is a snapshot, that it'll start moving when I look away. You've got an awesome gallery.
