i think you should begin 40k based on your art-work and avatar, i say that you would like it. you seem as a chaos type'a guy from your demon pictures, with a little bit of ork or imperial guard. They are very artistic and easy to customize.
ANYWAYS, thanks for reading about it. it helps spread the world and make it less un-popular.
Wow, I've seen the concepts of the units for the game and your maps you've been working on and I'm curious, when does this game come out? if you have even gotten that far that is, I was also wondering will it be based for both land and orbital/space battles kinda like Starwars Empire at war but extremely much better? and my last question is, where might I find out more information about this game in english? Sorry I'm just a major big fan in RTS games.
There is not much information in the web even in Russian (the developers are russians). The game is planed for the beginning/middle of next year. It will be based only on orbital battles. For more info you will have to wait some more
Awesome work! Great colors and shape to the neb! .....but why does everyone use nebulae as light sources?!? did you know nebulae are so dim, that even if we were standing in the middle of one, you still couldn't see it! they simply don't put out enough light (in many cases they put out NO light at all, they just reflect light from nearby stars or even block the star's light) I mean it's one thing to have a nebula in the same pic as a planet or star, you could look at it like it is some sort of trick of the camera (like combining different shutter speeds into one image, sort of an extreme HDRI) but showing a nebula as bright enough to influence the shading on a planet is just not correct....Ok, ok sorry - enough rant It's a small detail in a great work; so don't let my rant get you down
Yes I know that. But if I go for realism I might as well stop doing space art. The thing is that I am not a fan of planets and so on. I usually put them for composition and depth. I am more of a Hubble nebulae images fan. I like them and I don't really give a crap about realism. I paint my imagination. But if you prefer you can say that the nebulae I paint are just large star forming regions so that the light doesn't confuse anyone
That's OK with me, if you're taking a bit of artistic license It's just that i see a lot of people doing that, and I have my suspicions that most don't realize it's impossible.
IMO there is no problem with realism and art mixing together (many of the best space artists -Bonestell, Garlick, Bergeron, Dixon to name a few- are very realistic).... to me there is nothing wrong with including a planet and nebula in the same image as long as the planet is realistically lit by a star (which doesn't have to be on screen either)
Anyway I apologize if my rant came off as negative or anything like that just had to get that off my chest, keep up the great work
Yes, of course there is no problem with mixing art and realism but it just doesn't fit well into my head. I rarely like pieces like those. That is why I paint whatever my imagination brings into my head. I understand your need to get that off your chest and it didn't came negative.
Is there supposed to be a blurred border around this? I can notice a vertical "bar" on the right side that suddenly gets blurrier, but not so much on the left
Anyway, ignoring that - the nebula looks great! kinda like a mix between how they look from fara away and how they look up close (since it never feels the same with real ones even if it's the same nebula, closer they look like paintings, far away they're much more crisp )
