Space One by AndyFairhurst Space One by AndyFairhurst
I decided to have a go at some space art for the first time and had fun doing this. It is quite a boring scene really as nothing is happening but this is more an experiment to see how it would turn out so I decided not to have space battles or explosions etc.

after researching LOADS of other space art and photography I came across a cool tutorial for making planets which really helped. I just added a few more colours of my own and painted in some clouds. Here it is. [link]


The spaceship is just a random shape that I developed. I have saved a WIP of the ship which I might post.

Anyway I don't think it is that bad for my first space art.

Photoshop CS2
Wacom

textures from CGTextures.com

Thanks for looking

I think your space ship is so real;it's like being there to see it live.

Yes. I wrote a fictional news story about a colony ship being launched into space after I saw it.

WOoooooooooooooooT!

You should watch it.
It's a cartoon movie, done by the guy who did 'The Land Before Time', 'All Dogs Go To Heaven', 'Rocka-Doodle', 'An American Tale' & 'A Trol In Central Park'...and loads more.

Soem of my favourite cartoons actually. He's really good, animator, director and producer (Don Bluth) He did stuff for alot of older Disney stuff too :)

ACE MAN :D
I loooove DON BLUTH's style :D

It's actually..really different to alot of Disney, even though he started there...
but even in those ones, you can see Don's influence in them, even in the art, or the story play, alittle.
