Space Dock

Seldom I draw sci-fi art and I admit I'm very picky and selective about it. I have a few hours of downtime at work so might as well be productive and do a practice. My goal in this piece is to show a design that I haven't seen before but within the boundaries of believability. It's a dock and a town built on what's left of a moon where space sailors could hang out. Anyway, I'm happy on how it turned out and thanks to Marcelo and Simon for their constructive comments. Now go back to work.

Wow. That red. I couldn't have chosen a better red for this drawing, really nice contrast that works well and complements the background without taking away from it.

Cool! I'd love to see some of those ships animated flying in and docking! looks great!

I like to challenge myself all the time, or else I would never grow as an artist... professiopnally as well, reason I took a story position @Disney Feature...
Although personally, my challenges are never on the level of this piece..
youre work is genius...thanx for sharing

Armand Serrano said...

David,

Congratulations on the new post at Disney.

Very cool. love the sense of powdery quazar atmosphere you gave it. I wonder if some galactic environmentalist organization is mad that they just gutted a pristine space fragment to make their facility. But space sailors are a lot like space truckers; they really couldn't care less about that junk. I wonder what it looks like inside? A hotel? A warehouse? Truck stop? :) Beautiful, original work, friend.

Armand! Squeak! This is a -beautiful- piece, from the colours to the perspective of it all. It's just the sort of space port one of my characters would dock at/live in. Big hollowed out segment of rock - this is Fringe living at its best, making the best of defense and offense - because if you weren't careful you'd whack against one of those rocky outcrops and wham, there'd go your ship.

And if you didn't -know- there was a city underneath the hollow, you'd just pass straight on by...

This is story material!
