Voytek Nowakowski has entered the Grand Space Opera 2D.
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.
