A-group Mining Camp

A setting image for the "A" group's mining camp in the PBP RPG I'm GMing.

The idea for the image was in the back of my head for more than a month, but it took less than "a week" to get it into pixel form. (that's a few minutes per day working on the CG, and then a chunk of hours in Photoshop).

I tried to give the landing craft an impression that it's been through some firey reentries, but I think that part of my painting skill set still needs improvement.

The two Macross vehicles were added partially to round out the image, but mostly to provide a sense of scale. I wasn't planning to add all those cabin lights on the landing ship, but it provides a focal point (to distract from the lousy paint job, ha ha) and adds to the sense of scale, IMHO.

I was planing to add some piles of tailings off the end of the conveyor belt, but I wasn't able to fit it in frame. I didn't want to zoom out any further as that would alter the mood I wanted to instill.

Sadly, after placing the lighting rigs, the opening to the mine shaft kinda disappeared. Ah well...
