Lander by steve-burg Lander by steve-burg
I routinely have a few images floating around on my hard drive that I am never satisfied with. I keep tinkering with them a little here, a little there.

I've been fiddling around with this one long enough - so time to post! :)

(Edit: I made a minor adjustment to the background and re-posted the image)

You are on a level I dream to one day be. Technically, how were the rocks made? Did you use photo as a texture or did you paint it digitally? Its captivating. The ship is by my standards extremely well done. I like the texture and the structure of it.

Thanks very much :)
This is entirely painted in Photoshop. The rocks were built up from a number of layers. Actually, the ship was too, come to think of it.
I tend to rough things out very quickly, and the painting looks very abstract at that point. Then I start adding details, and this can be time consuming. I work on multiple layers, so I can vary the transparency. For something like the rocks, I use some custom brushes to give them the very granular look.
It's pretty much just a lot of trial and error until the image starts to feel complete. Sometimes the hardest thing is to know when to stop working on something! :D

You are a really good painter. I like your work. So you rough out a form and then detail it? That sounds like a technique I can start to learn.

You have an appealing style. It would be of great advantage in my short "Asassin".

Really fantastic design - I think the only problem is that the placement and perspective on the ship doesn't make complete sense.

I love the detail in this one very cool! are they exploring? or did some one need to go to the bathroom on the way to their destination? "Damn it all why didn't you go when we were at Alpha Station?!?!?!?" ;-)

My eye always tracks to your "leetle guys". Their details and poses always seem so natural and detailed... like they're standing in front of an abstract and admiring it :)

Thats an amazing design you have here, very compact quite obvious it uses some form of direct lift technology to land as neatly as that. A real stunning image, perfect thing to wake up to :)

Nice job sir. There seems to be almost a mist type thing happening behind the left side of the ship, it doesn't quite look right. I feel like it needs to be darker in that area. Everything else looks amazing. Keep it up mane.
