Marooned – Collaboration

As the title suggests, this piece was a collaboration between myself and Brian from Currents of Space.  Some of you have seen his work, but for those who haven’t, check him out. He’s incredible! We’ve been working on this for the better part of the last three weeks. We’ve put a lot of effort into this one and Brian was able to teach me a lot. So a big thank you to Brian and without further ado… Enjoy!

( I recommend full view for this one)

Backstory:

After tracking the strange energy signature for more than a week, the survey team decided it was worth the risk to attempt contact with it. With no documented evidence of aliens, beyond single cell organisms, found anywhere in the cosmos; if they were to discover some sort of intelligent life, there’s no telling the rewards that might be theirs.

Dropping through the upper reaches of the atmosphere, they could see a blue point of light pouring exotic particles into the sky from somewhere in the cloud wrapped mountains. The boson sensor readouts began fluctuating wildly as they drew nearer, and the froth of subatomic particles began to boil in the space around the ship. Suddenly the pilot gasped in terror as he watched all of their flight systems begin to power down with no apparent cause. Frantic, he tried to transfer full control to his manual hydraulic override. Only due to his skill at forestalling the inevitable were they able to successfully crashland their ship on the side of a mountain not far from the alien tower itself.

Now they are stranded with little supplies and not enough food; and the eerie energy put out by the tower is interfering with their long range communication equipment, making a call for help impossible. Marooned on a foreign world with no way home, their only hope of survival is to make their way to the tower and whatever mysteries lay inside.


Witness

An amature astronomer, living in a colony on one of the moons of his home world, looks into the night sky with his telescope only to see one of their other moons being struck by what looks to be some kind of weapon. As he stands there watching the destruction of something that has been there his entire life, thoughts begin screaming in his mind. The thought that is screaming the loudest is, “If this is an attack, how much longer do we have?”

Just something quick I put together (just under two hours). I had an idea for a little story and decided to give it a try. I only spent about an hour and a half on this one so it’s far from perfect but I think it’s still fun. I hope you all enjoy.


Above the Clouds

For those of you who saw my landscape/terraspace post a few days ago, here is the first images from those works in progress. In that previous post I asked the question, should I make a landscape or terraspace. Well, I made both so you can decide which you like better. This is my second attempt at a landscape and my first attempt at a terraspace piece. I really had fun making these so I’ve decided to make a small series of landscapes like these. So, here they are. I hope you enjoy them.


Wings of the Heavens

The primitive inhabitants of the planet we call Medrona look up every day to worship their god Anevay. Where we see just a supernova remnant, the people of Medrona see a giant bird who protects and looks after them.

This is my first time using pretty much every technique used in this image so let me know what you think. Any constructive criticism is welcome. I hope you enjoy.


New Dawn v2.0

I’ve been wanting to play with this image for awhile now and finally got around to it. The original New Dawn has always been my favorite and the idea of making changes to it in order to make it even better was exciting. I’ve had a lot of fun making this one and I’ve put alot of time into it. This little project was far more difficult than I was expecting so it took longer than I wanted. So finally, I’ll stop talking and just show it to you! Here it is, New Dawn v2.0.

Update to “The Alignment”

I made a few small changes to “The Alignment”. I got a few comments on this one telling me that the detail wasn’t quite up to par on parts of it. I agreed and went ahead and made some revisions. I hope you guys like this version.
