Battlefield, Dragos Jieanu (2D)

Title: Battlefield
Name: Dragos Jieanu
Country: Romania
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop

This one was inspired by one of the best artists ever, Ralph McQuarrie.
I thought it should be at 2D since 70% is photoshop.
I know the composition is not the most fortunate one. The initial sketch had a simple "one point perspective" composition, but I've tried to experiment with something more complex...and failed :)) That's why it's called trial and error. Anyway, I've put too much effort into it to throw it away, so here it is. Max for 3D, Photoshop for painting.

Superb! You certainly achieved a McQuarrie-esque look, well done. I love the way that everywhere I look, there is something happening. I also really like the way we're seeing from the perspective of inside another craft. If I had to give any critique, I'd say that perhaps there is a little too much blue overall - perhaps if the planet had been a slightly warmer tone, it would have made an interesting contrast and would also have helped to bring additional focus to the ship in the middle, but what you've done looks great anyway.

You do really, really superb work and this is a fantastic new addition to an already fabulous portfolio.

You have achieved a terrific sense of scale with this image.
Absolutelly fantastic and deserving of an award, in my opinion.

Glad you didn't 'throw it away' :-)
Abolutely stunning image and composition, also the color scheme looks like some of the older sci-fi paintings, unlike Leigh I find the blueish tone perfect.

I looks like sci fi book cover which means you've captured the mood very good. I can imagine the amount of work, starting with the planet background, the space station and the ships. As a huge sci fi fan i will tell - Bravo.
