A lost concept when Im learning with the tablet. No much, only stuff floating around... I think my final piece need a planet with rings, but I digress...
More to come (hope so...)

if i didn't know for what was made this image i could think that it's some kind of modern art stuff :)
anyway, i think, (don't know how to say it in english) ...that the composition of these blots/spots is good ;) waiting for the rest!

Is true its just some debriss floating but, reminds me a some kind of structure devasted, well maybe I can use it for the main composition... I really dont k. why I put this in frist place, considering is an image ive done time ago... Im a lazy man.

During this 10 Days or so, Ive been thinking about this contest every day.
Yesterday I asked myself: What is this contest all about?: Space Opera.

Space opera is a genre witch includes fights, passion, space, planets, to boldly go where no man has go before, etc. How I can put ALL of those things in just one image?
Early, Im thinking in some great battle scene in Saturn or something like that, but Im realizing those things just no works. A space battle can be epic, but just a battle is not space opera. Or it is?. A Lot of people in this contest is concentrating to do an overwhelming ilustration of SOME thing about the space opera, but maybe they are wrong with the contest...

Space Opera NEED to have all of the characteristics of the Space Opera, to BE an Space Opera piece. How I can put this all in only one composition? And today, watching a talk-show, I have the idea.

Ill do a movie poster about a fictionally sci-fi movie.

Its simple, Its so simple Its stupid, Easy to recognize for people, Since Space Opera its a movie thing, you need a movie poster for it. Its orginal because I dont see something like this in other posts, CAN contain ALL of the requisites of the space opera, and, in a single look, you can say: "Its Space Opera". Or: "WTF".
So Im decided, a movie poster Its my choice.

The Whole Creature: A4 at 600px/in.
4961 x 7016.

...And since Im good enought drawing characters, more than stuff, Its a valid idea for me :P .

PS. Sorry for the Engrish. Im not resposible for harmed-eyes when u read the above paragraphs.
