Grand Space Opera 2D Entry: Voytek Nowakowski

Voytek Nowakowski has entered the Grand Space Opera 2D.

Challenge Page

Latest Update: Final Image: Final Work



Ok, It is finished. I would have liked to finish earlier, but I have been very busy art directing for a game company at the same time I was doing this painting. I had no computer access at my apartment, and had to travel to work everytime I wanted to work on the Space Opera Challenge. Often I was there very late working on the image. This is my 3rd digital work, done in Photoshop. I haven't used any references - everything is from my imagination.

The recent Tsunami disaster in Asia influenced me to do the water in the background of the image.

This is how I view other galactic civilisations, and I believe that disasters like this will ruin those civilisations as well. After all, human kind is so determined to find life similar to our own. The two characters at the bottom are a hope that somewhere out there, there is a race of beings who can be warned by their guardian angels.

I would like to thank everyone for their positive and constructive comments. Good luck to you all.

I will see you all in this place.

I agree... it defintely stands out on its own and I like the organic touch. The bg has an almost traditional japanese feel. Very nice.

thats a lovely drawing. are you going to include characters/ vehicles in it? maybe you could add lyers in teh middle ground and foreground to create more space, also large things in the foreground. most elements in the drawing seem to have a smallish- medium size feel. consider varying size of teh masses an focal point in the final work/ proceeding milestones.

great work!! good luck!!

That really does look great! Considering the amount of detail you add to your sketches, the final product should be amazing. What kind of battle do you plan on adding?

OHH.. I admire your style, it reflects the traditional oil paintings that show off mystique lighting and warm colors, looks great so far!

I dont really have anything to criticize in this so far- its turning out amazingly! I like the colors you've used, and th scale really seems grand.
I'm not sure what else you'll be doing on it, so I cant say what might need improvement. If you didnt plan on doing it already, you might try darkening some areas to increase the sense of depth.
Thats all for now. Nice work.
