Star Crusade - part 1 by OmeN2501 Star Crusade - part 1 by OmeN2501
Another book cover - first part from the series

Target was to create mixed sifi - fantasy picture to correspond with the story told in the book

Background is kinda mattepainting, few NASA photo used - character and ship cockpit made by hand with Wacom Intuos and Photoshop

Hope you like it

I love it. Was it ever used? I haven't seen it on any books.

Beautiful work on the chain maille.  I also love the bodice, but the neckpiece seems a bit... fanciful to me.  Belts and leather and the sword are keepers, though.  Well done on the clothing, and the character fits them nicely, being the kind Captain and fierce warrior she appears to be.

Your tech is gorgeous and the world in the background is very well put together.

Excellent work, sir.

I found this picture ages ago, then lost it because I forgot to favourite! By happy chance I found it on a youtube video!
Hey, my old comment is just down there... why can I still see it? That was two years ago! This piece of work deserves so much more appreciation!

I absolutely LOVE this image. What's so funny is I look just like this drawing and I don't even know the artist. I'd love to purchase a copy of this image autographed by the artist to hang on my wall and the rights to us it on my avatar on my webpage.

Let's talk!

Amazing 3D art talent! Your drawings add that visual 3D depth that works well. Rich in colors and lighting...I like many of your graphics.

That... is AWESOME.

When you said "character and ship cockpit made by hand"
you mean there was no 3d used for this?
It's really hard to tell because of such amazing detail.

The decoration on her outfit is gorgeous.

I love how everything looks so natural, as if lady musketeers are a common sight on intergalactic spaceships.

Daaaaamn. Any book with cover art this totally AWESOME HAS to be a good read! *looks it up on Watersone's website*

Yay! A heroine who isn't scantily clad in what amounts to little more than three strategically placed bits of duct tape!
Your work is so incredible... I think I have to hate you for how brilliant you are! :D

Truly awe-inspiring work.

PRAISE THE GODS, someone else who despises those piss-poor excuses for suits of armour as much as I do :D Long live practical clothing on heroines!

I love the combination of futuristic stuff and the old clothing+weapon, gives an interesting atmosphere.
And the background is gorgeous. And the cockpit design is beautiful, balanced and yet strong, amazing concept :) The soft blue glow looks just great, love it.

This art is so good I want to go read the book. Can you give us a link to help us find it?

That is so well done that if you look not so carefully you can think that it is a photo. Hair, lips and eyes are so real. But in all your works I noticed that you have problems with noses. Everything is perfect on your works but noses are quite strange.
Linnae Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2009
Wonderful picture! Awesome background.
The detail on the outfit is great, as is the outfit.
And I love swords and spaceships!

Very beautiful! :heart:
Great realisation :clap:

I love how every one of your characters has a unique face. A lot of artists tend to draw the same face structures over and over with slight differences, but yours are all quite different which adds to the realism. She is my favourite, I think. :)

Your goal was very nicely achieved!

Sci-Fi fantasy set in space with a woman in appropriate armor = Frelling awesome.

Something about women in armor just says awesome and sexy at the same time.
