Is this only concept? Looks good but if you will add more details this pic will look amazing. The composition is great and I like these flying ships (?) It have really sci-fi appearance and I like it too!
When I look at this I have some ideas to make similar picture...but I don't want to steal a concept..hah I invite you to my Gallery.
With the internet, it's become extremely uncommon to see something really new - on the level of encountering Giger's work, for instance, or Chris Foss or John Berkey, or Syd Mead, or... Maybe less really is more - it certainly seems so to me!
Those guys were kinda like the pebbles dropping in the water. Now all we see are the ripples they left
In all fairness there certainly is some great original talent out there today - and on DA, too. But folks like Frazetta, Mead, Whelan, Berkey, McCall, Nagel, et al were just so ground breaking and really had no or few peers. That and there were fewer avenues for viewing such works. The internet definitely changed the game - I guess for both better and worse. One thing's for sure is that it's easier to get our daily diet of creative visual fuel!
The buildings are custom shapes. Just a bunch of lines and rectangles, really. I made a number of layers, then distorted the whole thing into the perspective you see in the painting. It is very fast to work with these shapes, I've discovered.
The little hovercraft (whatever they are) are just silhouettes with some painted detail to give them form.
Would be nice to see the background ships travelling in different directions and speeds to give them different shapes - as it is they look copied and pasted (I'm not accusing you of anything!) and don't add any interest
