Aftershock by steve-burg Aftershock by steve-burg
Just another quick Photoshop sketch. I guess the image pretty much speaks for itself! :)

Brilliant work, Just looking through your gallery the brush work is so efficient.
I'm putting a portfolio together to send off to FX departments for film companies and was wondering if you had any advice. Where did you start? and who would be the best sort of people to send them to.

I would say it's all a matter of practice - or maybe sheer stubbornness! ;)

You are most welcome Steve.
I have ideas, but when it comes to execution-I flop. I end up with a space yo yo or some kind of cooking device on planet nine pop art.
Maybe I need to stick with kids in costumes or my imaginary tripping floral surprises. :doh:

Well, a lot of people put all their focus on execution, but they don't have too many ideas. If you're motivated to do something because you've got an idea, that means something!
The hardest thing to learn - for me at least - was to kind of let go and "use the Force" (I was very uptight in an earlier time). Once I managed to do that, to my surprise - everything started to look much nicer. :)

Something in this evokes a NASA lifting body to me :)

A lifting body - hmmm, perhaps... but with the flight characteristics of a very large watermelon! :)

Well the HL-10 and 20 didn't look exactly "graceful" ;p

But I love those lifting bodies nonetheless!

I miss the era when we saw all kinds of experimental aircraft. I guess that was the 1950s and 1960s. After that, it slowed to a trickle...

OH! And the Cutlass! How could I forget that one? Man, we just don't make funky planes like we used to...

Yeah, that was a really great time. The XB-70, the Sea Dart, the Skyray, the X-15. It was like we unlocked jet and rocket technology and just couldn't get enough of exploring it! And we took it all for granted, growing up. The Gemini capsule went from napkin drawing to manned launch in about 5 years. Now, we've known we need to replace the shuttle for almost two decades and can't bring a single design to completion. That's why it's a delight to watch what Space-X is doing. They're operating like NASA used to! Innovation and quick turnaround. Maybe NASA's bureaucracy side just grew too unwieldy and became a boat anchor?

It's not just funky airplanes that seem to have dropped by the wayside. There are a LOT of things we (USA, that is) don't do like we used to.

In fact, I'm hard pressed to think of anything we're doing currently that's even remotely uplifting or forward thinking.

Hmmm, is that a hyperspace window I see? Either way, awesome rendition. Jeez, what is it with all the detail, is it usually brush or texture. I should see if I can find some high tech themed ones, they'd be useful for hull designs and architechture.

The detail is actually a buildup of many layers, some transparent, others partly "see-through". It's a constant process of evolving the texture. :)

Another fantastic image.
It gives a lot of envy what you can do with shapes in Photoshop simple ....

Yup, John Berkey. My mistake. I'm amazed at how all these layers end up as a cool looking spaceship. Wow. :D

Its a kind of approach I'm exploring right now - starting with abstract shapes, then "finding" the image gradually :)

Its no better on the eyes looking at a drawing board either, tried the old fallback of architectural detailing and illustration as an "eye rest" from doing as you say staring at monitors too long, think my eyes were actually worse after staring at the barely visible construction lines in 6H pencil than they would have been staring at a couple of 36 inch monitors for an equal period. You can't win lol
