Passing the Structure by steve-burg Passing the Structure by steve-burg
Two spaceships make a close flyby of a very large structure of unknown origin...

This is a revised, alternate version of "Express Delivery" [link]

There were some things about the earlier image that I was dissatisfied with, so I more or less started over using the basic shapes and silhouettes created the first time around :D

Whoah. Very cool. Did you have a particular concept or inspiration in mind as you were doing this piece?

Is there a name or tutorial for this technique? Because I absolutely love the way it looks and it seems like it allows fairly quick results.

I'm not sure if it has a name. But the use of the custom shapes tool is how I get the crisp appearance of the various areas of color. I'm not sure if there's a tutorial on it or not, but I found it immediately useful once I started experimenting with it! The process for making custom shapes is very similar to making a custom brush, except the "shape" is a vector (a path)so it is high contrast and resolution-independent. Any selection can be turned into a custom shape just as it can be made into a brush - but I usually use the threshold adjustment first to preview how the contrast will finally appear. :)

This is probably one of my favorite of your ship designs.
