Moon Base by JonHrubesch Moon Base by JonHrubesch
Painted with a Wacom tablet on Photoshop CS3. Used Google Sketchup to built the 3D environment. My original sketch was much simpler. I guess I just got too involved in the 3D build and ended up creating a much larger painting. This was a lot of work and to be honest I feel like it ended up becoming a little too busy.

I will work on a simpler painting next time.

I used [link] for my reference for the anchor woman.

Thanks everyone! It was a nice surprise to find that Moon Base had been given a daily deviation.

Bloody hell, it's absolutely fantastic, would it have been too busy to put Earth in the background?

Thanks!

Ha ha.  I have to admit this was not as ambitious when I started the original sketch.  It was only going to be some military guys hanging in one of those circular seating areas with large windows over looking the moon's surface.  I feel like I should still do that original sketch the way I had intended.  Then I could add the Earth into it too.  This image has gotten a lot of attention so I'm happy for that but I still feel like I should do the painting as I had actually envisioned it.

Hmmm, this is how I would picture a Rapture in space. (Bioshock)

The fact that this is Tranquility Base has absolutely nothing to do with Tranquility Lane in Fallout, right? o.O

I'm just referring to the location on the Moon. That's all.

Man, those people don't seem worried at all that they're about to get hit by a solar flare. I guess they got some powerful shielding protecting 'em, eh?

I figure they must store their water in tanks above the building. But I would hope they don't run low. Ha ha!

I've heard water can protect against a solar flare but I'm not sure how safe they would be.

Sounds fun. If this was a real place though, I would probably be too afraid to make the trip. I'm sure I wouldn't be able to afford it anyway. Ha ha!
