Relays by AdamBurn Relays by AdamBurn
Right, I'm not too sure what this is well I have an idea but it started out as a fast speed painting messing with custom shapes and kind of got out of hand, I suspect it's hollow and filled with unimaginably complex machinery and stuff that just makes your head pop, like dividing by zero. Anyway it's some kind of alien relay network, what it relays and to where I don't know just yet. I have a few ideas but my brain fries it's self when contemplating them.
Whatever concept I role with it will be rather massive and epic... Like you would expect anything less.

This one took around 3-4 hours and the ships are re-purposed from an older image, it was 5am and I just needed some generic ships to use as scale and movement haha.

Enjoy

Lol I like, that you don't know what it is. I had the same thought when I saw it "I don't know what it is... But I LIKE it!":)

I'm saying that you came up with your own thing rather than use someone else's.

Yet again awesome work! Loving the massive scale of them, is it just me or do they look a tiny bit like the Mass effect relays from that game *cough mass effect cough*?
