This Photoshop sketch is inspired by the wildly complex environments done in digital media by professional SF illustrators. Specifically the work of this artist, Alex Ruiz, who really takes advantage of all the neat stuff Photoshop lets you do. I am not anywhere near the skill level of Ruiz, but I can hope to be at some point in the future.
In this scene, a techno-mage drifts through a place of vast ruins, sustained by his telekinetic bubble platform. I would like one of these bubble platforms for myself. They don't go very fast but they are super for touring above ground or in difficult environments.
Photoshop, 10" x 7", January 14, 2011, about five hours of work.
