Calm Horizons

Hi!

Just finished a fan-illustration from Stephen R. Donaldson's book This Day All Gods Die : The Gap Into Ruin. (He's my favorite author, since the 70's). In his series, the Amnion are a hostile race, which build weird, organic ships. It's an amazing, if slightly dark, series I highly recommend.



This painting is of the UMCP shuttle, carrying Warden Dios approaching the Amnion defensive Calm Horizons.



Acrylic on hardboard, 18"x23"

Re: Calm Horizons

The contrast with the ship really emphasises the sense of scale, and you managed to give the Amnion structure and almost organic quality, like an interstellar wasp's nest.

Re: Calm Horizons

Wonderful artwork, the two distinct styles of ships are great!
The colors are wonderful.
I really love book recommendations also, so thanks for that too!
