Space Exploration Vessel Concept by Colourbrand Space Exploration Vessel Concept by Colourbrand
This was one of my earliest creations - a starship designed to explore the solar system.

The vessel is like the space station from the hit film 2001:A Space Odyssey. The large wheel like section rotates creating gravity and a field to repel cosmic radiation.

Just an experiment in glares and textures.

Enjoy!

This reminds me of several illustrations in the old Usborn Book of the Future...

Nice mood overall btw :)

Really? WOW! Just mucked about with this one.

I try to put a mood into my work - no point looking at something without some sort of feeling.

Thank you very much sir for taking time to look at some of my works - most appreciated :D

May I ask how you do the windows? They contribute a lot to this.

Sure - RGB Blue colour with brush setting on Colour Dodge.

When you do the windows do it with a big brush - say 10 px.

Then go over it with a brush set to half size - gives the impression that there is a light on in a room :)

Hope that helps :D

Thanks. Did a quick sketch with the technique; it looks nice, and saves a lot of time.
