__________________________________________

LET ME MAKE SOMETHING CLEAR - I have NEVER played Starcraft 2 nor have I EVER previously seen an image that is similar to this. If you checkout my entire gallery, I produce work that is of my own imagination. I have nothing to hide which is why I fully link to every stock I use. I searched for space ships and this is one of a few ships that caught my eye. Doesn't matter what ship, I could have picked from a dozen. The concept of this piece is the IMPORTANT message. 'that Earth was not aware' - this is all I had in mind when creating and that is all. If I had not used a SC2 ship, none of this 'drama' would be present. It's an insult that a few people are masquerading and accusing me outright.

I have also been made aware that this is the 'back' of the ship. To me, as someone unaware of the ship details itself, looks like the back of it to me. That's how I intended it and that's how it appears. So thanks for pointing it out anyway.

______________________________________________

We are not alone. Sooner or later, an invasion will happen.

A medium-sized project but only because I did not want to make this OTT. Kept simple in the end.

EDIT: MASSIVE thank-you to both =Infinite705 and ^casperium for featuring this piece - lots of love to both of you :) <3

Critique by TheWriterMirage Dec 13, 2010, 4:53:44 PM
Saw it in critiqueable, so i had to write a critique ;P

First of all, this is real good, I like this wallpapers pack so much. The colors, lights and contrast are perfect, and the space usage is really good.

However, a few things:

:bulletgreen:Again, there's a slight repeat in stars pattern (if it's a normal viewer it's highly unlikely they might notice it, but i thought i'd mention it.) look above the earth, there's a small collection of stars that keep repeating themselves, a big and a shiny star with a small and a bit dim star, this is mostly happening due to brush dynamics option. (if it's a pre-made BG, ignore this section.)

:bulletblue: The blue glow on the ship's engine, why is it on one side only? I don't know if this is intentional or not, but it's kinda giving it an odd feeling, almost as if the left side is going to explode, or warp.

other than that, I'd say perfect :clap:

First of all, great piece of art!

As a Starcraft 2 player this looks like the Earth is defending itself from an invasion as the Battlecruiser is firing its Yamato Cannon (Yes you've probably heard this many times). It's interesting trying to imagine the front of the ship as the reverse. It's like one of those pictures where it's possible to see two distinct images in one. At the end of the day I just couldn't see the 'front' as the 'back' as you did but it really made me think nonetheless. It's pretty amazing how two people can interpret the same image in an entirely different way and it makes me wonder what hidden interpretations are in all the pictures I have seen and will continue to see over the years...

Fantastic work here. And yes, I'm a SC2 fan ;-), but I think this looks great. Haters will hate.

Also, strictly speaking, the 'rear' of the ship is facing earth (if you consider it to be a Terran Battlecruiser from SC2) and it's flying away. Looks like it's firing it's main cannon. Not trying to nitpick, just an FYI. Either way, I get what you were trying to say. Still like it.

This is now my laptop wallpaper.

No problem! Also, if anything, your "ignorance" made for a freakin' awesome piece of artwork, even if people don't get the meaning. So at least there's that.

Keep up the great work!

Hey man, it doesnt matter what other people think. Anyway I like your piece and that youve kept most of the ship as a dark shape and made it pop with the lights and one section over planet. Cool.

Beautiful! Love the concept too. I just I have one tiny gripe, and yes I read that you haven't played SC so its ok but, that battlecruiser is in reverse!

But since you're not going for something in the SC continuty I guesse its ok.

Fav'd.

Whoa!, Awesome view, love the light and colors, doesn't look that much like the star-craft 2 ship, considering the SC 2 ship looks like a flatter version of the Klingon Negh'Var cruiser from star trek(who's copying who?lol,:D)
Great design anyways-FAVED!

It's a terran (human) battlecruiser. So "Earth was not aware" doesn't apply if you created this thinking that the spaceship was representative of an invasion.
Secondly, the ship is currently facing away from the planet, so again, not representative of an invasion.

yes, the technical details are incorrect but from when I saw the render, it looked like the back of the ship. thanks anyway

Let me guess. The UED is leaving/returning (which I doubt cause they were killed) Earth or is this just something you came up with? This is a cool piece right here.

Looks amazing and wonderful but it sounds to me like you may be acting a bit too defensive on this... "issue" some people seem to have, you mention working from your imagination but you decided to search for ship images? It's not what some what call using your imagination.

Also although it looks gorgeous it seems to me the ship is flying towards the planet... except it's backwards...

when you're receiving notes accusing you straight up outside of this, yeah it gets a little annoying. if people remained constructive as some people have, I have remained positive back. a few bad fish have caused me to do this. thanks. I did not realise this was the back of the ship :o
