    Perhaps, my comment should be for another thread, so I'll understand if it's removed. Anyhow, I have to agree with MIKECORRIERO, there needs to be more variety. And, I'm not talking about more variety in sci-fi or fantasy. I know this site is heavily geared towards those genres, but it would be beneficial to have more themes that are historical based. For instance, pirates, cowboys, czars, etc. (not: space pirates, space cowboys...) Or, have themes that excercise particular techniques and methods. For example themes that require 3 point perspective, specific palettes (monotone, analogous, complimentary, etc.), tonalaties (high-key, middle-key, low-key)..the list goes on.


    just my 2 cents.

    I'd like to see themes and methods combined, like cowboys in monotone, or what not. I agree that it feels like a lot of times the topic is either too open ended or too cliche.

    Another cent added to Danielh68's.

    Nice scrubbin but theres a minute detail that might cause a problem. Because its in space, a vacuum type device wouldnt work (how do you suck in nothing?).
    So i guess the ship just has to ram the debris
    Either that or you could say it has a gravity drive which simulates gravity to pull trash in. Oh the simplicity of fiction

    Okay, am I the only one reminded of that really cheesy old science fiction show "Quark"? With the space garbage scow that went around "eating" things?

    Finished the color version, replaced the black and white with it. All told, this was about two hours from concept to what you see here.

    Based it on a more bio-technological idea... sort of a cross between a Farscape Leviathan and a Baleen Whale. I figure if the ship is going to be gathering up junk and garbage, it might as well just eat the stuff and use it as some form of raw material or what-have-you if at all possible, right?

    unfortunatley the trash men of the future also work for the government as they are trained to be spies and do the 'dirty work'.
    And these aren't space trash men, they are space waste consultants, they pick the trash up, where it is dropped into the incinerator and expelled as tiny space particals.

    Yiako, digin' the expressions.
    Whisping leaves break the air as lost souls sleep unaware. Colors and sounds thrive and sway under a blind cover of mud and clay
