Reflect the Storm by Ron1649 Reflect the Storm by Ron1649
"Away from the light of the sun
away I find what is really me." - In Flames


I've started this one quite a long time ago (on 27th of January), then lost my inpiration, was inspired again a week ago and finished it. Started as a practice, grew to a larger project. i don't know exactly how long it took, somewhere between two to four weeks. made with Photoshop CS2 and cinema 4d (asteroids, spaceship).
Inspired by Homeworld (actually Homeworld historical and technical briefing) - colors, galaxy/nebula shape - and "In Flames - Reflect the storm" - concept.
and i should say that you better full-view it. thanks.

some tech stuff

well, a lil trick with brushing evertything with high zoom in black 'n' white and then balancing colors. blue for shadows, red/yellow for highlights. one of my favourite color schemes.
and yeah, it's a video game, of course. i just love that trilogy.
