Dropship by *raybender Suggester says: "Raybender's art is truly amazing. Fantastic concept, amazing depth and lighting, fabulous works of art!" ( Suggested by archanN and Featured by MacRebisz )
Very creative piece of art. I love your attention to the details in your spacecraft. The platform lighting & lighting from within adds good interest to the spaceship & surrounding area. Your composition really gets the viewers imagination going and creates endless storytelling possibilities.

The haze in the background enhances the mood of your painting. The towers frame your subjects well. Great color usage and overall design elements are fantastic. The only thing that might be changed is that I find the horizontal light just below the left tower to be very distracting and can't quite figure out where where the light source is coming from. Maybe just bringing the brightness down a little might help. My eyes seem to be drawn to it instead of the subjects on the ground.

Overall, a wonderful composition with many fine qualities and lots of impact for the viewer. Well done.

The ship reminds me of the aerial hunter killer from the Terminator movies

I love the amount of detail you put into your work. The way you paint, you are forced to zoom in to find things you didn't see before. The honey comb motif is utilized nicely in the dropship exterior, though it's more noticeable in the glass visor where the cockpit is. And I don't know if It's because I'm hooked on the game, but This looks like its out of Halo wars.
Robonightmare Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011  Student Writer
Nice and threatening, looks like a Siberian prison or something. I also like how the dropship almost looks like it's frowning at you.

I love the colors and the details :D!!!
CanRay Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2011  Professional Writer
Very nicely done, but I can see a problem already...

There isn't a pilot in the jumpseat waiting to get the ship ready to take off at a moment's notice! =P

Other than that, it's a excellent piece of artwork! (The fact that I can notice such a thing proves it!).
Taranis69 Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
stunning work
Magnum117 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011
Fantastic mood you've set in this piece - the dropship itself looks particularly daunting and ominous.

ThePitbullLover Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2010
Wow. I know I'm gonna have a Lego fielday bringing this into 3-D. Very moddy work, and very well done!
Vashra Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2010
Had to pull my brain out of steampunky goodness and go into a more modern frame of mind to appreciate this, but I still like it. My only complaint is that it feels just a bit "flat" to me...I'm not getting the sense that it's a shot of a 3D place if you know what I mean. But's very good.
RolandBoyce Featured By Owner Jul 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Very cool !
apavlides24 Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2010
Extraordinary. Thanks for all that effort.
Zero-Fourteen Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2010
I can only hope to get outcomes like this in the future.
I'm practising to be a concept artist and hopefully run my own studio and work on games and movies and stuff.

What were the exact dimensions of this particular piece?
Destro2k Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
all the sci-fi to me :D
