A concept piece I did using ArtRage3 based on a rough sketch. Scout cruiser brought down on some distant planet, with a faint nod to Peter Elson's work.
I took it further than I should, but fortunately ArtRage is horrible at blending, so it provides a natural stopping point. Not happy about the background, but first time in ArtRage, so there was a bit of a learning curve as to what it can do well. Now that I have Painter, I may revisit it at some future point. Anyway, comments are always appreciated. Cheers!
