EPIC SCI-FI ART (imagineFX tutorial) by moonxels EPIC SCI-FI ART (imagineFX tutorial) by moonxels
I can finally show my latest art done for IMAGINEFX magazine issue 83 special SCIFI art!
"paint sci-fi art on anEPIC SCALE"
it goes with a full tutorial as well

People ask me a lot about "how do I do it?"
so here is an answer for you!

there's a ton of work in this one , so be sure to get it!
you might learn a thing or two with the video that I recorded of my process in the included DVD...not to mention some custom brushes...
(if you get the digital copy ,I'm not sure you'll get those extras )

you can buy the issue there: (EDIT: sorry sold out!)

there's also an amazing video of what's in this issue here:

EDIT: you still can find the digital version here: [link]

a little background story for all scifi story lovers out there:

"this ship is leaving for a dangerous journey deeper into a strange nebula , where some alien activity were detected 10 years ago...this ship was specially build for that mission...
it's called "BEHEMOTH" and was build to face any dangerous radiations or danger it could encounter..."

First of all I'm a lover of Science Fiction, I can bet that you have seen a lot of Sci-fi movies or tv series, also read some books like Asimov o Bradbury ones, and you have captured incredibly the essence of an impressive battleship with a squadron escorting it.

In terms of color and light, I think that a less bright background, just a little bit, would have made the elements like the ship and the other ones in the right side to be more highlighted so a better sight could be achieved.

The nebula or star cluster you represented in the background and the front color of the middle ship start to blend a little bit, maybe when printed, it will darken a little bit and will be seen a lot better I think

Speaking of originality, I think your work is really good, awsome to be honest, not a lot of people achieve these kind of details, I think you have a little Battlestar Galactica influence for the small fighters, they look like the Viper ones, and that was something I loved because I'm a fan of that TV series.

The background structure in the left is just awsome and for the excellent depth you gave it, it really looks massive, not something to take lightly if I were there.

Well, these were some humble words from a Sci-fi and art fan, congratulations for your work my friend, keep doing this always!

wooo awesome
es una pintura increiblee!
me encanta siendote franco, la nave me recuerda un pquitin a l pillar of automm pero de resto esta increible en verdad
debo decir que la imagen es genial pero me gustari asaber mas del contexto que estas usando, quiero decir, se que es Sci-Fi y todo pero, me que da la duda de " hacia donde se dirige? que hay alli de fondo ?
somos artistas y en mi opinion aveces es bueno tener una contexto, las obras no son hermosas solo porque si, igual no lo hiciste solo porque si, me encanta y quisiera saber mas sobre tus obras

I love it!!!!!!!!!

yeah, I was hoping he'd poofed for good myself. I was just going over some old tumblr posts I made and got to the one I made about their art theft and thought "eh, why not check their account..." and saw more stolen stuff. not near as much as there was before I used tumblr to try and get most of it taken down (since I needed help from people who knew Japanese because of how much was stolen from pixiv), but still they've uploaded stuff as recently as late February so I figured it's time to do what I can again. which means just contacting the people they stole from since they blocked me from commenting (otherwise I could leave links to the originals in the comments as well).
