Nice sombre feeling of casual destruction on a vast scale by immensely powerful and nonchalant forces.

:) For me doing 3D art with software like Vue or LightWave it is hard to imagine how an artist could do such an image with Photoshop.
Makes my creations feel cheap.

nah your stuff is really good, I wouldn't know where to start with 3D, so it's just different skills :)

Your answer surprises me. I would not have assumed that this was done because of lack of knowledge of 3D software (in a way) and not because it was the only acceptable way for you as an artist. Makes me rethink the reasons why artists split in creating 3D scenes on one side and painting them (almost) 3D on the other. :)

No problem! The game isn't bad, either, if you got a PS3. I mean, it's Insomniac Games trying to produce their own take on Halo: Combat Evolved, and they slipped in a lot of areas, but, to be fair they did superbly well with the storyline. They used a strong 'Ancient Aliens' kind of plot, with an alternate WWII theme.

'Reminds me of Spore's Space Stage. Man, I've been playing that literally all week. 

Literally. I woke up, started playing, went to sleep, I was still playing.

Yeah, I have, no life. But I was destroying one of the Pink Empire's civilization the other day because they were tangling with my allies. 
I love the little detail on the side of the ship. 'Makes it really look like it's coated with some heavy plates, but it has some weak spots.

And man, you have patience. 7 to 8 hours? In that span of time, I probably would have given up. ood work!

when you're working on an image that's working you tend to enjoy it and the time just flies.

Trust me many images just go straight into the bin...

Agh, I doodle a lot and compile it in to little sketchdumps.

I mean, just because the thing isn't finished doesn't necessarily mean it's AWFUL . . . you know?

  i recently got the 2nd and 3rd games. never even played them before till now. there's just something uniquely satisfying to take down an advanced mechanical alien juggernaut of destruction like a reaper.
