this space ship illustrations are for an card game. these are the first designs and represent the "dark force" - fighter,bomber and striker.
drone,battleship and behemot and the designs for 4 more "forces"are supposed to follow.
i´m having tons of fun painting these- i just love all things sci-fi !
its also a good excuse to geek up and do "real life-field-studies" in my favorite space-game, eve online
i´m trying to create my own original designs- and of course i don´t use the game-images as reference but as an great ilustrator once said " we can´t stand outside a man and paint him well.We´ve got to be that man."- but since eve lacks an first person view of the action i had to look for an game where i could sit inside an space-ship, and "be that man"
- and i found it ! its called "black prophecy" - an free (!) online space action game- the graphics are most amazing- also the game-play,and after some hours of playing i truly felt like an experienced space-ship pilot !
highly recommended !
