Apcalypse: Hand in Hand by en-tyrael Apcalypse: Hand in Hand by en-tyrael
Story:

2456 it began: One natural catastrophe after the other...
Our scientists had told us that they will come but we thought till this will happen we would have things, weapons, to stop it! But it wasn't like this:
A comet rain started and the earth was hurt! But we stood there, and watched the drama! No one could split us, no one an nothing, we thought. But suddenly there was this great burning rock, flying towards us.

Hand in Hand we stood there, and watched at our death...

Apcalypse: Hand in Hand

I worked fucking long and hard on this pic, tried to improve my brushings skills, but it isn't easy to brush with a normal mouse. I used photoshop and Cinema4d, and i was strongly inspirated by star wars, so you can see a naboo fighter there, and for the real fans: On a few buildings are shield-generators.

I hope you like this piece, it ' ll not give a print file, couse the brushings aren't detailed enough and i wont sell you shit!
Thx 4 reading

Wow, nice work. I think it'd make a wonderful print, personally, but your artwork, your choice.

I like the small, unmentioned Nebulon-B hidden right next to the center towers, and the TIE Interceptors flying around it.

with so many comments mine is off the front page, which makes me a little more comfortable posting crit for such an amazing piece... i just feel it is a little sharp... and using photoshop or something may tone down the edges... you can see i posted it as a fave so you can guess how much i love it anyway...

it gave a evacutation-ish effect. Since I'm under the idea that those ships are most of the time medical ships. ops I'm turning nerdy agains :D

amazing work,
lovin' the details over there

I really like the ships they look very futuristic but yet very convincing..
I like the motion blur you added.. not very usual .. but cool effect.

those buildings and lights are very cool , great details, cool textures.. very nice..
for some reason the distant city looks rather odd ..
it's very obvious that the lights of the distant city are manually placed pixels..

the clouds look good but they lack some detail I think,
the comets on the other hand are fabulous.. very well done, great details, amazing colours..

great work .. like it a lot :)

the blur on the ships make it look like they are shaking up and down like in an earthquake; other than that it is an incredible piece.

Ok... now this is worth a deep analisys... first of all CONGRATULATIONS! this is a awesome scene.

now for the detailed coment...

great environment here. there are a couple of glitches though.. the comet.. it looks like it was too colour-saturized and the ship's "reactors" could been better lit, if u used gaussian instead of motion and distorted the glow it whould look much better, the blur around the ship's was not necessary cuz it whould look much better if they where a bit crisp, another solution for that was to select transparency on the ships layer and then contract the selection by 2 pixels, inverting it and then adding blur on a 4pixel rate.. that whould make only the outer limit of the ship blur and u could the fade the blur into something almost unseeable but that whould work out much better. the spotlight is a very good idea but it ruins the perspective on it.. if the spotlight was big on the top and smaller on the bottom leaning forwards it whould look much more real than it actually looks. the adding litle guys is a wonderfull idea cuz it gives the scene a whole new dimension and it shows that things are much bigger than they look.. the sky is very good but it's too red.. normally even in sky's so cataclysmic we are used to see the space itself (u added the stars but it's way too red to get a good universal effect on it) adding a litle black clouds or a black gradient layer from top to down should have been a good idea.. after adding the layer u whould be able to delete the down white part off the layer-mask so u got the black effect much better. besides that u should get the colouring a litle better cuz it's showing a litle bit of pixel-saturization on the midle cloud section.. all in all this is a splendurous work and i think that in a couple of months you'll be the next star to shine on the pro gallery's here on DA. congratulations on this and i hope my bitchin will help u on enhancing a couple details you're lacking right now :hug:

Thx for this great analyse!

But at a few point I have to say that's wrong:
The comet is one of the eyecatcher,s so i made a very strong saturation this is really wanted.

The other thing with the spotlights: There's a way how it could work :P : The glowing part is the area where the light of the litttttle spot in the middle gets catched :)

But thanks for this great comment! Im honoured!
