Cradle Super Docks by AdamBurn Cradle Super Docks by AdamBurn
This is the first installment for my little project about a giant civil war, it was mentioned a while back with the submission of the emblem for Paragon.
This image shows a large Paragon fleet of dreadnoughts and support craft moving towards the, under construction, super dock, an artificial planet about 1/4 the size of earth built to be used as a forward base during the war to supply, build and research.
The Paragon flag ship the Agamemnon can be seen under one of the docking arms over the planet, its over a hundred miles long and acts as a command ship, repair and supply ship and a carrier as well as a pretty effect battleship.

I decided to give this image a more real feel to it, a gritty look with low saturation and bright surfaces watching battlestar galactica helped with this style.

trying to get a feel of distance was hard, it always is in space images as there is no distance haze, but I used a similar haze technique to get it working in this image, I think it payed off.

Time: approx 10 hours
Resolution: 4000x3700
DPI: 300

I'm grateful for the lack of starships cluttering up the foreground! On that note is it alright if I use this image as cover art for a fanfiction I'm writing? Nothing cereal of course.
