In Transit by steve-burg In Transit by steve-burg
The dangers of unplanned artwork... This is a Photoshop scribble that grew and mutated into its present form... :)

Edit: I used some smoke from CG textures for the exhaust - [link]

The rest, I just painted... ;)

I really like the dynamic of the picture, it seems that the front of the main ship has arrived while the rest of the body is still in some kind of distortion movement :p
It's just great :clap:

I like your sketches a lot. Takes me back to the days when I did editorial work for Isaac Asimov's SF Mag and later at Amazing Stories (back in the 80s). I always enjoyed seeing the cover concepts and how they turned into the finished pieces -- all hand-painted back in those days. :)

Thank you - it's good to hear that! :)
I've slowly come to the conclusion that I really prefer the older science fiction - with occasional exceptions, of course.
The desire to steer my own personal art in that direction is very deliberate :nod:
Chalk it up to "reminding myself why I liked this stuff in the first place"! :)

Very nice concept. Reminds me a bit of Vincent di Fate.

Ah, I like his book covers! Probably I was aiming for a John Berkey feel, but Vincent di Fate is in the same neighborhood :)

Really digging this suggestive style you do with repeated variations of basic forms...use much of those custom shapes for this or just brushes?
Reply
:iconsteve-burg:
steve-burg Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2011  Professional Filmographer
This is mostly brushes - and mostly the soft and hard edged round brush. Just lots and lots of layers to build it up! :)

I've kind of gravitated back toward the classic style - deliberately! I like that stuff :D
