Desert outpost (
7000 x 4600 px )
NOTE: The poster and canvas previews may look a little blurry but the actual physical products look fine.
My first Sci-Fi picture in a long time. In fact the last time I did one was back in 2003 (X2 flight). From 1999 to 2005 I've done so much Sci-Fi work for computer games that I got burned out Sci-Fi wise. I needed a break to recover. Some two years later I'm now slowly getting back on track and plan on doing more Sci-Fi images. |
Working on this piece reminded me how much I enjoy doing Sci-Fi art when not pressured by deadlines and all the other necessary evils associated with working for hire. It's a totally different experience.
Anyway, I wanted to do something not too complex. So I thought of an outpost in a barren landscape with a warm, late evening atmosphere. As you can see the setting is in a dual sun system with two moons, which actually don't pick up much of the sun on the horizon - it looks better that way :) The air vehicles are on a routine patrol flying from outpost to outpost making sure everything is OK. I especially like the mood here. A sunset in a desert environment with a massive, giant structure in the middle of nowhere...

this is my most favourite picture on the internet, will have to buy when i've got the money :)
This gives me an idea for a possible concept for a game like Command And Conquer and yes as Zack Graham suggested, Starcraft. Amazing pic. Keep it up

Ive taken time to look at your sci fi and fantasy artwork and they are truly spectacular. Id be interested to know what has inspired you to do this kind of artwork.
The mood and colors are what make the planets you create truly wonderful.
