Space Battle Preview by Rahll Space Battle Preview by Rahll
It's been a while since I've uploaded something, but rest assured there'll be a bunch of new stuff soon. This is a small crop of a painting I did of a space battle for a client. I can't show the full thing til the 24th (I think), so mark your calendar... or not, rofl.

I just wanted to throw something out there of it, cause I really had a blast with this piece. Expect some wallpaper versions of the battle, as well as the spacescape by itself.

Take care!

Oh, and before someone calls me out, yeah, I used the classic "Rahll" colors as some people have put it, rofl. It was too perfect for this painting, although I will say it started out far more green, and the original spacescape will probably retain that when I polish it up.

Lol had the exact thought about the colours, but everyone needs a shtick, right? :D

Also. Spoiler: everyone dies.

There's absolutely no reason to be down on yourself for using a certain color palette or anything... looks great from the snippet.

Exciting preview. I love epic space battle scenes as well. Can't wait! I don't see any problem in using your 'classic' colours, it's part of your style, as much as anything else.

How have you been working on this now? Because if I remember your Fb updates on the WIP correctly , judging from the time you uploaded those, til now, that means you are still human. Superhuman maybe, but human.

Can't wait to see what you conjured up :D

Just a couple of weeks actually, but I had some down time on and off in there, and I had to spend a few days modeling the ships as well.

I basically had to break it down into background completion, modeling and lighting the ships, then putting it all together, painting into the ships and finishing it off. All this at roughly 4000x7300 pixels, so it was a lot of work.

You're still human! :3

That does sound like a lot of work though! But it pays of so well. I really liked that first wip with just the planet at the bottom and that city-planet (Moon? Spacestation?) at the top. That really looked serene ^^

On question though:
You say you worked on it on and off? Do you sometimes get that too, when you haven't worked on it for a few days and start in again, that it's kinda hard getting back into the painting?

It depends, sometimes I need a break to clear my mind and come back fresh, especially when I'm getting frustrated or I'm not sure what to do next. Occasionally it's hard to get back into it without the proper motivation, but I find usually all it takes is seeing some other awesome artwork, or layering everything down and messing with it on top for a little bit without the burden of layers, to try and fix what isn't working for me.

Ahh space battle you say, I've been working on a lot of those recently for a game also I look forward to seeing your rendition of one. There simply aren't enough epic space battle paintings these days :ahoy:

Totally agree with you there. I want to try my hand at another, because I had constraints with this as far as design and composition goes, as well as doing a vertical format. I'd love to do my own cinematic format image, I find stuff like this is much more suited to it.
