-this one is more" HARD SCI-FI"
with a touch of retro style to it
As per usual with many of *moonxels paintings, this one pulls out all the stops to display the many details in the shot. The billowing clouds as they lick the surfaces of the air crafts as the blaze through the skies and the various indentations and markings on their hulls gives a great feeling of both realism and motion as they almost glide across the canvas. The interior of the cockpit is the most eye-catching of it all. The various displays and buttons with simultaneous back lighting gives the look of a real cockpit. The pilot's helmet even shows a great sense of detail with both the texture used on the helmet and even some of the markings on its surface give a great look of use and slight age.
As well done as the presentation of the image is, there are still some things that could be done to perfect it further. Some of the lights on the inside of the cockpit appear to have been blurred slightly more than some of the others and there are some other lights that just appear flat. Unless an illusion of depth-of-field is being created inside of the cockpit, this particular part needs to be modified a bit and cleaned up for consistency.
Aside from the blur in the lights, that barely changes the fact that this is still quite the amazing piece design. With great detail and use of coloring as well as lighting, this is one piece that will feel right at home in your favorites gallery. Good work as always.
This is beautiful.
and it's an illustration so I have to tell a story not painting reality ,otherwise it won't work!
I love this one too,
no really, even the amount of detail in the cockpit
if i may ask, how long did you work on that one?
well I think it was around 2 weeks
not too long compared to my early works...
2 weeks... damn, i think i never spend more than 3 days with a pic, normally only just an evening...
