This is another quick experimental sketch using the custom shapes tool in Photoshop. I'd call it a "speed painting" - but the techniques used are a lot more like collage than painting :D

Like a number of my illustrations found here on DA, this is inspired by the colorful and dramatic sci-fi paperback cover art I loved so much when I was growing up.

EDIT: After posting this image, I decided to rework it. The alternate version - "Passing the Structure" - can be found here: [link]

I'm with her, I like the ship - alot, but the background doesn't do it any justice. A good spacescape should do it however.

I might try a different version of the background. It's actually supposed to be a very large structure, but I cropped in on the image and in looking at it now, I think I lost some important details that helped get that across :nod:

I always try and listen to comments - it's sometimes hard for me to see things that other people can see. In this case, I felt like the image fell short, and it was worth a better effort! :nod:
(Sometimes I might just apply what I have learned to new work, but I liked the ship design and wanted to rescue it from being trapped in a flawed painting! :D
