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

I really dig your work, and this is no exception. However, my eye picks up repetition, and I can tell that the two ships are the same raster, just mirrored. That aside, the mood and atmosphere are awesome, and it was a cool choice to make the planet so close...

Cheers

heavy indeed! the contrasting colors and the verticality rock
for more heaviness I suggest both shuttles head in the same direction (to the left). the fact that they lean towards each other makes it less dynamic imo;

I'm honestly not a huge fan of the ship design, I can't really see whats' going on with them, but the lighting, mood, and background are all great. The real reason I'm commenting is because I think the back story is great and really original - good job. :)
