The Terminal by Shue13 The Terminal by Shue13
It's been a while since I did not make a matte sci-fi scene and here is "The Terminal".
This one is fully inspired by a French artist I discovered in the following book in french (sorry...): [link]
It's Paul Chadeisson I should credit him for the composition and the brushes he kindly shared, check out his website: [link]
Have a look at his gallery, it's really good.

Nevertheless, everything has been fully made by myself, no like for like elements. I added many things, details and textures.

Here are the stocks I used, mostly for the left part of the plant:

Planet texture from the NASA site:

All the rest has been painted or from my own stock.

Hope you guys we'll like it.

Wonderful, subtle and intriguing. You've really captured a very grounded, recognisably 'earthy' sense of industrial enterprise in an otherwise fantastical scene. The restraint you've shown on the shadow-side of the plant is admirable - there's just enough detail to draw the viewer further and further in. The light-wrap around the planet is beautifully executed, the atmospherics lend great depth and draw us past the plant and into the dawn of a new day. Also, the lens-flares are spot on and really help to 'take us there'. It's a slight shame about the JPEG posterization in a couple of areas, but that's JPEG's fault, not yours. I imagine the original is breathtaking. All in all, bravo! And thank you for introducing me to Paul's work - his future-Paris stuff blew my mind!

The sheer magnitude of what must be done to save the Earth and all of humanity and secure our position in the Universe... This concept art inspires a thought concept of design and an image of magnitude.  Its amazing how small yet significant human beings are and their imagination.  And what is possible through technology combined with the human brain.. We truly could secure an infinite existence within the universe, and here we are experiencing the possibility and initial thought of it first hand

I really like the way you suggest the immensity of the structure by leaving it in the darkness ! On the other hand, the level of detail is stunning ! Really a superb scene !

I love the colours and the fact that much of the structure is in shadow, it gives great focus to the landing pad/dock. :)

Beautiful piece, the ample amount of dark structure on the left side gives it a foreboding feel.

Purée elle déchire cette image ! Vraiment excellentissime. Beau boulot de lumière et de détails. Le travail sur les différents plans (à droite notammet) est admirable. Cette image ressort nettement du reste de la galerie. C'est le haut du panier ! ;)
Au fait, tu connais sûrement John Harris. Il peint des visions assez similaires. Si tu connais pas, voilà un petit post de blog que j'avais fait à son sujet : [link]
