Our Phantom Skies by ukitakumuki Our Phantom Skies by ukitakumuki
a day in PS CS :o

Done for an A1 poster for my diplomashow... ;_; damn school.

Its recycled and remade material from a scene of my Final Year animation project(solo), Konnimo: Our Phantom Skies...

In this mood shot, I wanted to show the real back-world behind the film, one which was vast and foreboding. The carrier Den Mother is in dry-air dock with a hulking command tower, getting rearmed and repaired automatically. Vertical idea was pushed because I wanted a universal idea of courage and fearlessness -representative of space flight (with a nifty solid fuel rocket). The clouds and acrid gases I hope, add to that effect! :) The vast cityscape below can be seen if u peer closely enough.

I hope diploma show goes well, its been hell thus far, 4 am and I'm still laying out my portfolio [which btw is ghastly] :(

#$@%!^

Looks like it belongs in Half-Life 2 or Dishonored (they both share similar aesthetic design and were drawn-up by the same artist). Fantastic.

This is great! The way the warm light works creates a very nice atmosphere and the text in the middle works really nicely.

Wow... Amazement strikes again... Reminds me a bit of the beginning video sequence from Freelancer, when the ships depart to the new star systems they have a vertical launch system just like this one.

I seriously wonder... Could you have it available for print, and if yes, what would it be likely to cost? I'd really like to see if I can get my eager (but clean) hands on it...
(just read ~morningstar- 's post and your reply... Argl.)

The tall, vertical shape is very Homeworld-esque. The ship is a very cool version of that unique theme. I really love the lighting too; It's some of the best I have seen.

I really want to see your animation now!
