Mars Spaceport by JonHrubesch Mars Spaceport by JonHrubesch
I used Google SketchUp for the large ship in the distance, the ship framing the picture and the boxes. Then I painted over everything on photoshop 7.0 with a wacom tablet. The time spent on this painting was ridiculous but it was a fun challenge.

Breathtaking. Perfect mix in styles between realism and comic book IMHO.

Ha ha! Thanks! I used reference for the girl's pose changing it a little bit. A form-fitting suit always helps. But NASA has been experimenting with form-fitted space suits to make it easier for the astronauts to move around - kind of like the new Prometheus movie.
I doubt they would wear high-heals though. :shrug:

This is stunning ! I like the Mars Color Look and the Astronauts Uniform-Suits. I remembered movies like Total Recall and something else.
Great inspiration for my own Spaceport for Action figures too.

Thanks. I think it does have an old school kind of feel to it. I have to say I learned a lot by working on it. I learned not to bother adding detail that can not be seen and I should plan a composition early in the process. I ended up painting things that I later had to discard. Believe it or not the girl was never in the original and the main character siting on the box was the more static posed astronaut that is now positioned on the right side of the image. There are a lot of issues with this painting but I feel that I've learned a little and improved a little.
