My favourute old scifi painter from '80 is Chris Foss.
This is a remake one of his paints.
I know, the original Foss's picture is better, but I am not a great artist as Foss. :)

Hey, thatīs great! :buttrock:

I always loved those Chris Foss images... too bad this kind of visual was never really used on a great motion picture.

The only thing I would say is, maybe the nose texture is a little off (or, maybe, itīs the compression of the image).

Anyway, loved your work. How did you create the textures?

Thank you.
Painted texture are only on the upper part of the vehicle, painted in Photoshop.

Nice!

My only crit is that in the original picture the machine has a bit more angular design. But very impressive!

Very very nice but I think the noise in the background (the air mostly) might be a bit overdone.

:) Yes, the noise is strong.
But I want to make the noise of the original picture. But I now think, this noise is only on the photo of the painting. :)))

I like this better than the original painting. Outstanding job.
Thanks for the foss link. I'd love to see what you could do with some more contemporary sci-fi illustrators work. Stephan Youll has some good stuff too. No site but he does have a book out. take a look.
