The Black Arrow by moonxels The Black Arrow by moonxels
you can view here the BLACK ARROW spaceship accosting the HYBRIS space station for refuel and resupply.
those kind of spaceships are so radioactive because of the extreme conditions and high energetic environments they explore, that they need special docks ...

thanks a lot to ~xprojectd24

Suggester says: "The Black Arrow by *moonxels" showcases his skill as an artist in his phenomenal attention to detail. From the overall feel of the work (colors, composition, etc) to the details (tiny cracks on the hull, small lighting details on the consoles), this piece emanates professionalism and love for the art." ( Suggested by xprojectd24 and Featured by MacRebisz )
In the depths of human society we have always asked ourselves this simple phrase, "what's next?" It could mean what's next for tomorrow, our jobs, even our society itself. Some believe space travel and terraformation could be the future if certain things were to take place in our history. The Black Arrow by *moonxels gives us a brief glimpse into what that possible future could look like and has to be one of the best looking future/sci-fi space pieces I have seen in a long time.

Starting off, the detail placed into every individual element is excellent. From the minuscule details like the buttons on keyboards, scratches in walls, floors and paint, and even the statistics and information on the screens in the main control room, its all a feast for the eyes and the imagination. The massive ship in the background really gives you a genuine sense of scale for the entire ship and really makes you feel smaller in comparison to it. It almost feels like your looking through the eyes of a bridge worker looking over the edge of a platform, watching the captain calculate his next course of action. Lighting usage is equally as stunning and really jumps on display. Everything emanates light realistically and while appearing bright and dominating, does not out balance the overall design of the ship and spacescape.

The Black Arrow is a piece that grasps your attention and does not even have to try to keep it. From the outstanding detail in each and every brush stroke to the excellent lighting and sense of scale, it a truly amazing piece to see. Excellent work. *moonxels.
