Useless ? Not at all ! The comments of the steps were as much inspiring as the show of the pictures itself (or even more than the pictures). Also, your "for 1 image there is 20 sketches" is so true ^^ Anyway, ending with such a final product out of this simple first skecth is an amazing thing !
it is freakin awesome it helped me alot as far as learning how to make my own style ships an the steps i need to take in progress to get the full details and lighting correctly i know this is the steps for your ship but it has inspired me and helped me to learn the errors i made with my own designs an how i can fix them...
Great tutorial, straight to my favourites and then downlaoded for later use. Well done! I find your story quite captivating also... I seem to be in the 'middle' of your story... I have just got off the video games and have now dussted off the 2 year old bamboo tablet and started in digital art but am currently terrrible. Anyway, you are just amazing!
As good as the final piece is, I actually really like Step 4 as an image. The vague shape of the ringed planet in the distant mist bearing down on the spacecraft is a really evocative and mysterious idea, I think. A good setup for a space horror/psychological thriller.
