I haven't made a single classic space scene in 2011, even though I have my roots in space art. So here you go.
The main motivation for this work was to practice angles and perspective and it took a lot longer than expected.
To complete this image I made use of several different techniques: While the station in the foreground is mainly painted with addition of a few textures ([link]
and cgtextures.com), the resource for the people in it is stock photography ([link] [link] [link]
). To render the planet and the spaceship the 3D functions of Photoshop came in handy. The ship model in the mid-planes is based on one of ~dmaland
's renders ([link]
) and edited with the usual addition of textures and effects. Thanks a lot!
