Strafe by AdamBurn Strafe by AdamBurn
A speed painting showing a group of futuristic gunship of sorts performing a strafing run on what is most likely a very volatile enemy position, judging by the size of the fireballs they either hit a big fuel refinery or they are using nuclear ammunition.

The image took around 45 minutes.

Enjoy

Hey man, This is perfect.
I am a dubstep producer and was looking for some art to promote my music. I made a song called "Strafe" and this picture came closest to what I was looking for. Is it ok if I use this art? I will put a link to your deviant art page or website on anywhere this image is used I.E. Youtube, Beatport, Facebook etc. If you want ill send you the song so yo can check if its worthy of me using your art or not. hehe

Most of the time yes, I work in B&W then overlay colours then start painting over the top in colour once I have the colours how I want them, I find it hard to start in colour

i like how the middle gunship is in focus while the others are blurred. nice effect. even though the background is reletivly (didnt spell that right) simple it looks very realistic. exellent work.

At first the ships looked somewhat Avatar-inspired. But now it's like a combination of that, and the ships off of Unreal Tournament 2004.


Excellent composition. Gotta love the effects when something explodes. ;D
