Planetary Defense by soulburn3d Planetary Defense by soulburn3d
Had some bad health problems these past 3 months, I'm so happy to be well enough to actually get excited about making my own art again. While I didn't mean to, the image shares a similar theme and composition to my Swirling Sands image, so you may consider this a sequel. Modeled / shaded in max, rendered in Brazil, photoshop for the atmosphere and then a bunch of painting on top to add all the details.

Trade Federation Lucrehulk-Class Core Ships is what this picture reminds me of.

Hehe, my inspiration was from the original Empire Strikes back, which I'm sure inspired those ships :)

Looks like they could be on the planet Dune! The technology has the look of the Dune universe.

Reminds me of the Trade Fed coreships and the vessel from Dr Who ep "City of Death".

Terrifyingly brilliant!

BTW - hope you are on the mend :D

Never seen that one, will have to ask my wife, she's a dr who fan :) Glad you like it. And yes, I'm generally doing better, but the illness has become somewhat chronic, so I just have to be careful to not enrage it again.

Excellent idea and well done. Not sure those little legs can handle the recoil of those big guns mind:)

soulburn3d Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Hehe, ya, good point. If I do another one I'll make sure to make thicker more powerful legs. Thanks for the crit!

Not a crit really, just a thought.

If the guns are laser powered they won´t have any recoil anyway I think, light doesn´t make recoil otherwise the sun would be flying all over the place:)

soulburn3d Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Hehe. Well, regardless of what type of ammo they use, the guns are a little top heavy even just sitting there, so looking back at it, I probably should have made the base a little more heavy duty looking. But you can't think of everything, you just have to make the note and try and remember it on your next project :)

They could have drill like things underneath which anchor them to the ground when they shoot.

Nice work! I like the "creature" look of the landing feet! :clap:
Can the ships walk a bit too? :?
I have wanted to do some spherical spaceships, but you beat me to it! :rofl:
Well done! :D

soulburn3d Featured By Owner Jul 30, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Yup, they can shuffle around to reconfigure themselves on the ground to whatever formation helps with the defense. Glad you like em, and please do make some spherical spaceships, would love to see em.
