I love this piece. It reminds me of one of the best creepy scenes in Homeworld. And a sense of mystery to this painting just adds to the level of AWESOMENESS. The detailing in the armor paneling on the ruins must have been hell. It looks perfect...
Very cool Thanks for letting me know you were doing this piece! Off the top of my head, I'd echo Nemonus' comment--the wreckage looks a little "thin". Perhaps some more broken linear elements to suggest the framework beneath the skin?
Really cool scene, i like how you wrote maelstrom on your disinegrating ship. It looks like it would feel like you were putting your hands in pudding on the little wreckage-y fallen parts, like they'd been so melted and destroyed they lost form. I really like this whole scene.
Good. The holes ripped in the Maelstron look a little thin, as if they've only had to go through one layer to be at space again. Otherwise, though, great job, excellent sense of scale as always. I could see you as a video game concept designer.
Thanks for the crit, Nemonus. I understand what you mean and it was done intentionally to really sell the idea that this ship has been absolutely gutted by something. There's only a shell left of what was once (probably) a great ship.
