Heavy Metal by supersampled Heavy Metal by supersampled
"The Ashcen was the ceremony that celebrated a Kushauwan Pilot's the 10th Magniacapra engagement.

The event was the acquisition of "war paint" via the low altitude gravitational assist of Ganarhun I in the Ganarhun system.

Ganarhun I was a Metallic Hypergiant who's close proximity to it's star caused it's surface in daylight, to evaporate prior to being blown by the solar wind into interstellar space. As pilots undergoing the Ashcen transgress through the planets ;bleeding' atmosphere, metallic vapour condenses and scars hull plating providing the vessel with unique patterns that distingish the pilot amoungst it's peers."

Synax444's work provided most of the inspiration for this piece.

Still working on nailing the visual style for the CoS universe.

Expect maybe one more image before I return to some heavy duty modelling for several months.

Hope you enjoy
