Carnage in the skies by PenUser Carnage in the skies by PenUser
A group of commandos look down on their colleagues handiwork from the side of another carrier that they're about to bring down themselves.

Right, a little technical practice where I tried out some coloring tricks... that's why the pic is a bit messy in composition. Also, I tried out a bit more cyberpunkish style for the characters. Generally this was an experiment piece on many things, so that's why it's not inked or done properly. Just something little for fun, basically.

At first I got the impression they were lying down in the desert at night looking up at a fighter battle. After I read the description though it all made sense and I really love the perspective. Its only confusing when taken out of context. If this was a panel in a comic book (which it definitely deserves to be!) then you'd have no trouble understanding immediately what's going on. Not to mention the "gravity" of the commandos situation;)

All around this is a beautiful, awesome drawing! Don't be surprised if you see me trying to capture that perspective, its really amazing.

Oh, quite so. Like said, I drew the picture itself just for fun- it really had no purpose at all so I used it as a test base for a few effects I don't know how to use properly. For example, the rain is one of those and it's messy as hell... also there's the explosion which actually looks better than I thought it would and then the smoke effects. All conviniently mushed to one picture. Also, the background was a bit too bright, so I actually changed that to a much darker one just now, improved the composition a bit.

But yeah, generally speaking it's not my best stuff.

Aight...Will you be working more on this/do this again?

PenUser Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
No, I don't think I'll do much on this one... there's lot of points that could be better, but it's mainly served it's purpose as a quick exercise for the things I mentioned.

That said, I'll be working on similar pics to get a good grasp on color and lighting effects for the technique I'm using on Photoshop right now. I got two a bit similar ones on the sketchpad, so they'll be ready pretty soon probably. Then there's one bigger infographic/space/scifi pic that I'm doing, too.

So this is a carrier group? And teams of commandoes are bringing them down 1 by 1?

Pretty much. The guys in the pic are on the other side, meaning the reddish-coloured ships around.
