Tantalus-Arrives Desk by Drell-7 Tantalus-Arrives Desk by Drell-7
Padawanmage asked if I could do a version of Tantalus arrives that would be suitable for the desktop. Here it is!
Here's the description from the original:

The Nuclear-pulse powered starship Tantalus has settled into orbit around one of the large gas giants orbiting HV2887. The human crew has revived, and are preparing to begin processing one of the smaller moons for raw materials. The mined ores and volitiles will be used to assemble the architecture necessary to lay down the first colony on the Earth-like world orbiting farther out from the sun.

Done in Lightwave 10, with additional work in Photoshop, Illustrator and Vue Studio. Thanks for looking!

Yeah, Once I got into this version, I think it really turned out better than the original!

I love the lighting on this pic.  It's by far some of the most realistic space art I've ever seen, but embracing a kind of sci-fi vessel that could be built given the money and resources.

This is great work.

Do you do commissions?

Thank you! I really try, especially with non-space opera stuff, to try to think it through. I'm not taking commissions at this time, as I'm at work on a large-scale project of my own.

Okay.  I've written a couple of game modules for Traveller, a sci-fi RPG, and am looking to self publish this year.  I'll need some cover art done if you're available when the time comes.
