Defenses by AdamBurn Defenses by AdamBurn
This illustration was to give an idea of the Human ships defenses, they have shields but they are magnetic field shields similar to real world attempts at creating energy shields. The shields are invisible both when active and when hit only the fact that the explosions look different and obviously detonate before hitting the ship can you tell they have shields. The other defense is the flak system, inspired by Battlestar Gallactica the Humans in this game are very slap dash they would rather hurl hundreds of inexpensive projectiles at an area to protect against missile bombardments than spend a lot of money on creating and installing a system that is accurate and more effective. Also for shits and giggles what looks better a single shot gun or a cloud of explosions?

The flak cannon on BSG are one of the inspirations for this scene as well as the flak defence systems in the game hehe, nothing looks better than a wall of explosions

Would I be mistaking by saying that this image has incorporated some screenshots from one of the Battlestar Galactica space battle scenes?

Kinda, the mass of explosions in a few of my images are a mash of screen grabs from BSG and some of my own, the chaotic explosions fests that BSG often show are stunning and its exactly the same sense of chaos we were aiming for in this game.

To be honest, the BSG episodes are a clear cut mix of endless scenes of faces and CG porn.

Hi, all your art is fantastic, and I was just curious, how long does it usually take to make something like this, that has so much detail and work?
