SDJ - Landing Dock by ElsaKroese SDJ - Landing Dock by ElsaKroese
A little speedy for the Speedy du Jour by the DA-Speedpaint group.
I refused to do something Sci-fi because the topic (Landing platform) was sort of pushing in that direction and stubborn head that I am...well u know the rest of the story.

Little less than an hour spend on this one. The most of the structure is made in Alchemy (yay :D), background and some cleaning up done in photoshop.

Mew :D

This appeals to the idea of steam-punk to me as it is like in the days long since gone, but still the idea of technology along the road not taken. as instead of a real airship loo, a Zeppelin could be put in the place of in this screen and still look good. I think this is nice as the silhouette to the landing base, it is simple yet effective in concept, well done. :)

Looking at this piece brings me the elusive nostalgic joy that we all love so much but tend to pretend we don't.
Do you have that in a slightly better resolution? I'd LOVE to have that one as my wallpaper.

This reminds me of a mix between Escaflowne and Howl's Moving Castle, with a touch of Final Fantasy. But at the same time, it's all your own. I love this.

how do you get a paint effect like that on photoshop?

I try to use looser brush strokes and don't cover them all up by blending them away completely. Also try to use some texture brushes here and there. I wouldn't say this is the best example. maybe this helps? [link]

very nice! The one small critique I have is that the ship looks very large next to the buildings and landing pad- is the ship supposed to be in the foreground? Other than that I really like the design of both the ship and the buildings! Nice light too!
