Harbinger by AdamBurn Harbinger by AdamBurn
Part of a commission for a new stand alone table top card game called "The Art", [link] the guy that built this ship is the evil dude at the top. It is called the Harbinger a rather massive hive ship of sorts that uses a rather unique method of propulsion and quite dirty in that it spews out plasma.

Quite a menacing ship with reaver vibes :ahoy:

It kind of looks like a Reaper from Mass Effect.

Half stock half custom brush, use the stock as a base then paint over it to get it to how I want it :ahoy:

The lighting and coloured plasma smoke are truly my favorite parts, they bring a sense of etherealness that is very elegantly achieved, not to mention the dark-armor-metal texture for the ship. Works definitely worth watching

Awesome design. Genuinely alien-looking and the shapes give off a highly agressive outline. Definitely worth a fave!

Great spaceship design :clap:
But the scale of the ship is very difficult to imagine, the dynamic shape suggest more a small fighter ship, not massive hive ship.

Well I guess since there is nothing giving a scale the feeling of size can vary between people =)

Nice! How many layers did it have when finished?

AdamBurn Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
When finished not that many, one for the whole ship, one for overlaying texture and colour, the background, then lighting, and final corrections and tone. I usually merge as I go or else the files get too big to work with but when making the ship it had about 30 layers before merging.

Both a haunting and intimidating sight.....makes it look a bit like ghost ship, though some parts of the ship look to clean for that.....still it would be a fear inspiring sight......

I absolutely love this piece. The asymmetry is unsettling, but the vessel itself is very sleek. I particularly enjoy the effect around the engines, and the description of them as 'dirty' seems very apt.
It certainly looks different from the rest of the art for the card game though!

Really? Aside form it having 2 protruding bits it looks nothing like anything from Mass Effect, sorry but I just don't get where your coming from.
