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.

This is so extremely impressive, both structurally as well as artistically, that I really can't say much else than wow. The shading, the texture, everything...its just...wow :)

Actually I got that idea from starwars, some concept art I found by Dylan Cole showed a planet with a huge metal ring around it, this is a similar concept

it does look quite like star wars. I knew I was missing something. but that's irrelevant. I was referring specifically to the symbology in the glowing blue lines on it's surface. They look distinctly like forerunner symbols to me.

Those ship designs remind me so much of Panzer Dragoon's Empire. They have that feel of organic flow with the panel separation on the hull. White and bleached out shade even in space from the sun. Also some lightning to indicate decks and viewpoints is noticeable and I love it. I really made me felt like I’m seeing the next Panzer Dragoon game in space or something from the makers. Fooled me good for a while…keep this up! I want to see how far you’re talent will take you.

I'd say this is one of the best pictures I've seen recently. That haze has paid off, we can see that 'arm' on the far right but not really any detail on it (because of how far we are). Godd work, well done :)
