This image portrays an exodus of a civilization. Could be ours someday... There is a feeling of peace and the sunset represents hope of a new beginning. Regarding the spaceships, there is an analogy with fish both in their design and in the way they are grouped together as in a school of fish.
This image was done for a Portuguese forum contest whose theme was "Grand Space". It was done in Photoshop with a little help from 3dsmax (spaceship mock ups) and took me about 20 hours to complete. No photos or photo-based brushes were used as it was one of the contest rules.
Here are a couple of details and the painting process:

thats really cool, except it a tad unbalanced on the right side
Beautiful image mate. Very nice lighting.
minor crit on the ships tho, i think the functionality of them couldve been developed a bit more.
Other than that, great I also loved your walkthroughs on 3dtotal
Your landscapes are amazing.
thechalkie - thanks...and you may be right. I tried to balance the sunset with the nearer spaceship.
Kian - thanks...sometimes you get to a point where you just want to finish the piece, so probably the spaceships got less detail
JoanathanS - great...I'm glad you think so
dkounios - it's always great when someone uses your work as desktop. Thank-you very much.
JoaoCaetano - muito obrigado
I love the emotion of the piece, and how it could be decomposed in simple shapes. Cool stuff...!
Very sick!!! Can you post the 3d max template you used?
Life is a long lesson in humility.
