Are You Receiving? by Rahll Are You Receiving? by Rahll
Been doing a lot of commission work lately, and I needed to do something quick and relaxing to help loosen me up again.

Probably took around 3 or 4 hours, minus some little tweaks when I was done. I wish I had done it higher res, but then I probably would've spent more time than I can spare on it.

I've always had a soft spot for good space art, but this is really only my second time trying my hand at it. I'm developing some decent techniques, but one of these days, I'm going to give it a solid go and really spend some time on one.

Anyway, hope you like it!

I'd imagine this to be pretty similar to the aftermath of a Star Wars space battle!

Great work, absolutely perfect!

Do you completely use standard brushes, or do you use special brushes? If you do, could you please put them up for download? Thank you if you do ;)

I love sci-fi and stuff that has to do with space, so this (to me and possibly everyone else) is true-ly epic.. I can't believe you did this in 3-4 hours!

Tehe, once again going through your gallery, finding things I didn't notice before.

Only 4 hours...wowy! I would have loved to see that come into being in RL, just to see how such realism can be achieved in such a short time.

Anyway, the sense of depth and scale is just amazing here!

at the rate we are going with putting satelitte's in orbit around the Earth, I would say that that is the way we are heading.
