Topic: Probe Arriving at Gliese System suggested by xbert
This week's theme will focus on a celestial/space environment where a probing aircraft or a general vessel is seen arriving at Gliese, a planet system surrounding a red dwarf. I figure it's been awhile since the EOW has went intergalactic. Strap in!
Please post your finals in the "Final Burning" thread which will be set up before the deadline.
Maybe I misunderstood the topic, does the "celestial environment" means like a planet environment too, or it could be only something in space?
Anyway, here's my really quick sketch. If it't not relevant to the topic, I'll try new one.
Flame_Unquenchable : liking those colors. i would go crazy with stars in the background/atmosphere.
so after a sleepless night and countless wasted hours trying to do simple functions in zbrush like hard surface shape rendering, which seems impossible.
i switched to a different program, with some basic knowledge i did this in less than an hour.
basically copying my previous design. . . . . .
Last week I found a really cool planet making tutorial on 3dtotal http://www.3dtotal.com/index_tutoria...splay=2&id=547 and thought i'd apply the technique here and see what I could come up with. It feels like a cheat but people use textures and brushes all the time, so as a secondary element / base to work on, it could be useful. What do you think?
Really basic spaceshit. I just felt like I had to get all the normal stuff out of my head as I haven't done any space scenes before. Not sure if I'll continue this one but figured I'd upload it anyway. Really quick wip.

Hey! This will be my first EOW, and I am loving all the wips! It's so inspiring to see all the awesome art in this place!
So here is my wip, and so far it's just the background. I'll bring a ship into the picture tomorrow. Any critique or advise is so appreciated!
Any critique is very welcome! I am here to learn! Thank you!

Lionsketch, I like your idea - it seems to have an "exploring" vibe to it, which is good with this contest. I don't know exactly what makes it feel that way - maybe the fact that we are looking out on this (currently) desolate landscape, and the probe is moving INTO it?
