Apocalypse, please by axian Apocalypse, please by axian
So anyway this is my entry into the inspirations contest...obviously.

For inspiration, I used the work of Ryan Church ([link])

Why? For no better reason than that I like his work. It tends to be quite dramatic and that`s the quality I wanted to capture. I also wanted to create a sense of scale, of epic conflict, in the airspace above this city.

In the end I`m pretty happy with how this turned out. Took about 8~10 hours, Painter 6.1

Amazing! However all those wings are going to give these planes a hell of a lot of drag.

This is one awesome picture for sure and i am really surprised that you only recieved less than 300 views. I really dig your choice of colour and composition. And the Ryan Church style colour is really awesome too.

just out of my curiosity. Have you played a space game called "Freespace" before? It is hte greatest space flight game ever made and one of your fighter crafts kinda resembles to the Pegasus stealth fighter used by the Terrans.

Wow. It's a little blurry, and while there is a whole bunch of action in some places, some places are left almost empty. But I like it, very much indeed. :)

Damn. Daaaaaaamn. Now I gotta look at this Ryan Church fellow's work too. But you did great on getting that dramatic quality.
