Forsaken Encampment by steve-burg Forsaken Encampment by steve-burg
I made this image in spring of 2008.

This scene was inspired by a Ron Cobb concept painting done for the original "Alien" movie. I modeled the ship based on the design shown in his illustration.

The original concept - dropped from the film - depicted an abandoned military installation on the desolate planet. The base was buried in the ground, with a few small structures visible on the surface. The large shuttle is the most obvious sign of human habitation. (I chose to show more than one of these ships).

This view is a different composition than the original artwork, although I also rendered a view that matched the original painting.

The 3D scene was modeled and rendered in Lightwave 3D. Some textures from CGTextures [link] were blended into the foreground and the sky

It does look like that - I think it's a highlight on the hull (or something). They're definitely stuck well into the nose on the geometry... :D
