Last Line of Defence by omi-kun Last Line of Defence by omi-kun
It's really too late. But I imagine they would scramble every thing they have, even if a handful of interceptors Won't change the course of the Hiigaran battle.

I really want to fix the sky, the figures, and add some visible light fixtures and loading equipment.But I've hit my limit on how long I spend on one painting before my efficiency drops through the floor and I start pulling my hair out.

Took about 5-7 hours broken over 3 sitting. Done on PS CS3 I liberal use of color dodge and horrible techniques. C & C welcome.

edit> Fixed a couple of things, mainly the lighting, composition, and background. Took about 2-3 hours, slowly pecking away at it. Hope you like the new engine color dodge :D

Yeha this works alot better now.

Small crit, id say that the city is a little too sharp, and is stealing a bit more focus than you intended. Its a fine balancing trick isnt it...

Awesome, I love the added details. The background actually feels real, I really like how the the sunlight is being reflected from that building... It also looks like and overcast cloud is blocking the light to a certain point giving it a nice cool day feel. Pretty great!! :D

-This- looks great! I love the look of the ships in upper orbit!

The only other problem I have is not seeing any stabilizing boosters. That is to say: how does this thing sit on the ground? I see no wheels, or legs like the 'Millennium Falcon' has. If it is hovering, what is giving it lift. If it -is- on the ground, then the shadows on the ground under it are too soft.

Keep up the great work. I like seeing these things evolve.

Yeah it just hovers... nyvek also mentioned it in a chat. Man I guess I'll have to revise it again. I'm thinking wheels but that doesn't sound very sophisticated...

Sweet, did you use your paper model for reference?

Kind of wonder what it would look like with the engines lit.

Haha yeah I did. Had to glue on couple of pieces back on before I could use it as a reference. I was going to light the engines but... didn't want to paint another light source...

I'm working on an update of it, so I might add that in as well.

I just meant to make the image wider to the right hand side.

Paintover.

Hmm nice work man.

I think the main thing that is hurting this is the composition. Everything about the image is making me want to look out the doors and see some epic sky with stuff happening, but that space is cutoff leaving the image feeling very lacking. So i think that this would benefit from a much wider horizontal composition. Well imo anyways :).

Keep it up.

Hmm I am not well versed in composition. What do you mean a 'wider horizontal composition'? I did want to work more on the sky, you can sort of see the final battle with the two motherships in orbit, but I didn't think it should be the main focus.

Thank Talros! I think I abused the color dodge tool a bit too much though, heh.

Ah, you sound like me when I talk about my art. The extra time is a bit much when you're working, but it pays off.

I like this one. Conveys a nice sense of action, though I'd do a little blurring around the people, as they do look a bit stagnant as they are. Very good work! :)
