Homecoming by ILJackson Homecoming by ILJackson
Another hi-rez image for the magazine article. This one is of the survivors of a long range exploration expedition finally making it home to a space station above the icy moon of a gas giant.
This one makes a great wallpaper.

Enjoy and let me know what you think.

I like the way you've lit this. Bright, yet not overwhelming/ garish.

Fantastic! Two things really stand out for me: the light rays and the incredible atmosphere below :)

Inspired slightly by the StarCraft Battlecruiser unit? :)
Just a thought; they look kind of similar to me (though it is a pretty standard design).
Regardless though, it's awesome! I love the quality of the renders and the surfaces therein, but it seems like there is a lot to look at: although the focus is on the expedition ship, the space station and the other ships are quite eye-catching and I'm not sure where to look, as my gaze is constantly shifting.
But like I say, it's a stunning image insofar as the quality and prettiness goes - and I always like space ships. ;D

which ship? The center one? I've never played starcraft. Not a big RTS guy.

Oh, I think that's just the angle in that shot. Here's another view: [link]

It's really based off of a Sangamon-class escort carrier from WWII. [link]

Ah - I didn't realise it had as much variation in the sides as that. =P
I guess, by my ideas, all star ships look the same...
