Arrival by ANTIFAN-REAL Arrival by ANTIFAN-REAL
An arriving transport slows down as it reaches it's destination; an enormous space city orbiting a distant planet.

Another fairly old piece, one of the last I painted with a mouse. This was an experiment in bringing multiple mediums together.


Drawn in PS 7 - Simple block created for station, planetscape drawn from photo ref, arriving craft scanned in pencil sketch that was then painted up. Original res 6250x1800

Love your art.   I find it to be inspirational.  I wonder, how many hours did it take to produce this kind of art?

I really like this. The warm colours of the planet are inviting; the gradual thinning of the atmosphere into space is convincing; the details in the ship and the floating city are very crisp and well-done. The starry background is also very convincing; thanks for sharing!

You painted this with a mouse? I guess the legend of the digital painter who used a mouse is true, after all. Anyway, good job on the space city- this is really a great painting.

Hi, I made some songs and I was going to put them on youtube. And I’m making a slideshows of artwork for the songs for people to look at when they listen to the music so it’s not so boring. Can I use this picture in the slideshow if I give the internet address to go to your picture of if I gave the link to go to this picture from youtube?

incredible piece, i was wondering if you could tell me how you created such a convincing star field in the background, did u use custom brushes or some form of the noise filter and clone stamp? The piece is beautifully brushes, the planet looks cloudy and very convincing, but my favorite thing is the use of lighting which is very dynamic. Incredible for something thats mouse drawn, tablet drawn or drawn at all!
