Orbit - Redux by ANTIFAN-REAL Orbit - Redux by ANTIFAN-REAL
This is a little bit of a revisit to an old idea – “Orbit” was originally just me mucking about but became very popular for prints and publishing – however I never really thought that much about it at the time (I was literally just sketching space art as a bit of fun between projects). I loved the idea of the piece so now, 8 years on I've had another stab at it. :)

“A highly advanced race builds an enormous spaceport off the coast of a continent, dwafing the 20km high skyscrapers on the land, the main structure brushing the cloud layers with near 100km diameter docking spurs surrounding it. Built above the main structure, another level that is beyond the atmosphere – allowing craft to dock without braving the weather on the planet”

Painted in Adobe PS CS3
Wacom Intous 3 Tablet
Original res 5k wide
About 20-22 hour work.
I used some great photos of Earth from space as reference for the world.


Book now out :)

The vision in this pic, once more, is absolutely stunning. Gary Tonge is one of the best among today's sci-fi artists (and for a good reason). If you haven't discovered his gallery yet, make sure to catch up some inspiration there! ( Featured by taenaron )

What an image! The clouds are so well rendered, and I just love the city's details.

Cool perspective, it could use some more detailed highlights in the dark/light transitions. The lighting overall seems a bit imbalanced, the dark area should have some more lighting reflections.

This is Incredible!

How much to commission art from you?

I need to illustrate 5 pages in graphic novel format and 1 cover page to pitch a concept.

Thanks,

Andrew
