"Contact"  the Effect of the Machine by steve-burg "Contact"  the Effect of the Machine by steve-burg
Another find in the old archives - from 1996 (long time ago!)

This is a concept painting done for the movie "Contact". It shows the design of a command ship as the vessel is drawn toward the powerful effect generated by the "Machine".

The painting was done in acrylics on Strathmore cold-press illustration board, and measures 9"x16"...

i remember watching it as kid with my family

at first I was lost but now when I remember it, I find it beautiful

nice work!

for a painting that is 17 years old, it still retains that feeling you know

Wow! I'm happy to see a concept about my favorite movie, i grow up with Contact. =D
I love the details and the atmosphere, especially because now knowing the movie i can feel so much what happens in that moment.
For it's great to see another prospective.

Beautiful.
