Fortress Hand Seven by ukitakumuki Fortress Hand Seven by ukitakumuki
2 hours or so PS CS..

Quick mood setup for a snow outpost that was evacuated after a transport fell from the sky :( This is situated on a low-G world.. that is why snow seems to not really fall, but just form and inch slowly toward the ground.

The layout is similiar to that of Whiskey outpost from the Starship troopers game.. an open top garrison concept.

Mine has towers 'half erected' and a hand-shaped 'living machine' reactor that tunnels its way into the geomound where it can locate minerals or thermals to power the base. My idea of how a 'orga-mecha' base might work..

Alot of cool ppl are now working for HB :) yay.

A3art Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2005
This looks great, excellent atmosphere there, great lighining and colors.. and all that just in two hours?? I just finished my first digital painting and it took me about 9 hours and it isn't even 5% of this quality, if you could see it and give me some tips to have in mind for my future works, it would be an honor, here it is -> [link]

mr-goodbytes Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2005
Amazing. I'm quite impressed with this one, particularly. I like the colouring and the shading, and the flare stuff too ^^.
AND-3 Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2005
I am in truly in awe... 2 hours is unbelieveable. This is the kind of stuff I like and love to learn more about the mindset behind it - Painting, composition and all. Problem is that I don't know where to start let alone know what to do with I have.

Brillant piece.
ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2005  Professional Digital Artist
it was definetely easier during the time when i didn't know as much, alot of of things that were invisible to me just didn't require the concious effort.. i guess i was lucky to not screw it up totally back then.. I would never see this piece the same way again though XD its badly screwed up with regards to value structure :(

Now i definetely take longer, and have a prolonged concious effort to recheck during the painting and visualisation process :)

hakubaikou Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2004
Nice. The bottom right corner's really pleasing to look at. I'm not sure why though, but that segment feels vaguely like.... pie slices of light. (Ugh, that makes no sense. Sorry.)

I really like the lighting a lot on this. Especially the glow effect through the transport. Very nice, and the background setup story adds a lot.

What a unique style.. this is excellent. And to imagine that it only took a couple hours or so.. damn! Bravo. :+fav:
ephigy Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004
buh da ba da taaa... i'm lovin' it.

Fresh as always uki. The thing I like best about this piece is the information in the foreground. It serves to contextualize the image very well, and makes everything feel slightly voyeuristic. Bang-up job.
shocks Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004
i love this one, it has a great setting and great theme. WOnderfully done
statichavoc Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
all of your conceptual art is quite inspirational... not just for me but for others... with the quick 2 hours on this work... i probably couldn't even accomplish the same in 2 days of straight work. much respect for that. great job with this and all your works. Not only that but your description that accompanies your pieces add to it in many ways. Maybe a walkthrough of how you work could be a great addition to the community sir! Just a thought. And what I like about this piece is really the detail of the wreckage vs. the murkiness of the rest of the scene... great job.
ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Professional Digital Artist

:) Thank you
statichavoc Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
forgive me kind sir! p.s. i've been doodling in photoshop trying to at least mimmick your style in the slightest way... and thanks for the link i didn't see it off hand in your gallery!
ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! Do show when you're done man!

Oh and congrats on the newborn!!!!!!11 :) I wish you all the best !
statichavoc Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'll let you know when i have something worthwhile to show! hahaha... any tips on color palette selecting... i can draw and paint decent... just the colors dont play off eachother well! argle! Anywho... thanks for the congrats on the baby... but it's not born yet!!! hehe. Keep kicking ass at the art!
ukitakumuki Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Professional Digital Artist
My palatte is always chosen FIRST for 'believeability' sake. Photoref might be useful once in a while if I feel very.. daunted by a certain selection.

Most of the time.. its hardest to make sense of what you see with your eyes, and how the world sees it thru a Lens( of varying depth) all the way to cross processed film, with its myriad of types etc.

I think therefore.. the most important issue at hand is Values and how on a b/w scale.. just how believable and 'depth'-ful an image is. Colour comes second then :)
statichavoc Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thanks a ton... picking the colors first helped out a TON... i always think form before aesthetics... which seems to be my problem... and i'm too structure when i draw... need to be loose i suppose. you ever on aim? i'd like to see your work at a fullsize - the size you work at so i can see how you get around to doing to much detail with seemingly few strokes! I really appreciate all your help so far... great stuff sir! i'm always in awe.
