The Concept!

THE CONCEPT.....Definitely set in an alternative Universe where alas a Planet/Planets are being blown to hell...and our little fighters are retreating through either a gateway/wormhole or a tear in space brought on by the forces who are wreaking havoc on said planets....definitely a lot more to come....rapid fire so to time for bed!!! cheers

Planet one cropped.......more planets to finish then will start working them into a composition

Coloring WIP: Planet two....burnt toast

More of a blue and cool type planet.....thought I'd set it alight for contrast and drama....added a few ship trails to show flight off and away from the planet

Great concepts! The colouring on the planet looks very nice. I like the mood lighting, colours, and sense of "grand" you are conveying in this piece. Good luck

Love the planet. Where are the ships going?

It looks great. I really like the planet, the color and fire are nice. Also your spaceship sketch.
No critics.
