Derelict by AdamBurn Derelict by AdamBurn
An image done as part of a series of images for a game trailer, about 13 in total, this is a scene depicting world burnt by war and a derelict ship floating in a belt of debris.
This image was put in my portfolio and thought I might upload it here also.

It sorta looks like Sajuuk from Homeworld 2. Just wondering but did you get any inspiration from the Homeworld series?

The texture of the planet is gorgeous. However, my favourite part is the dust in the debris. It looks like it could be snow, only the colour of sand.

Is this all done with a tablet? The lighting is terrific. Can see the heat and intensity from the source. It's so textured and the planet has some nice highlighted bits (photos?)

Mostly painted, the ship and background were done using brushes and the polygon lasso tool, the planet is a mix of large photos of textures to make the surface and again more brushes to make explosions

Reminds me awfully of the derelict Reaper in ME2. Inspired by it?

The art, by the way, is pure awesome.

wow, this is amazing work! I love it.

Also, it is strangely similar to the "Derelict Reaper" in Mass Effect 2. I mean, even the name "derelict" is used in Mass Effect, and the setting is almost identical.

The ship you've drawn even LOOKS like a reaper! :la:

Coincidence?... i think not ;D

That's some impressive stuff, love the sense of texture that you have throughout this piece. It just feels really tangible and quite different from so many other space related pictures I have seen. And colours and composition work well, too! If at all, I feel like maybe the explosion on the right side of the artefact should cause a bit of light wrap / bleed over some parts of the artefact's right edge...although stylistically I really like the right side being straight dark :D

Don't get me wrong, the picture is briliant, but the fact that it's not Homeworld at all is unbelievably confusing. I'm not sure what I think about it, I still see Homeworld. If someone remade it into the Homeworld 2 map, you wouldn't find a single man who would question the Homeworld origin of it.
But the picture is beautiful, I'm adding it to my favourites.
