Discovery Alone by Andr-Sar Discovery Alone by Andr-Sar
Once again, pathetic fanart in honor of 2001:SO and 2010:TYWMC movie films. Test your monitor settings for max visual experience. :)

Painted from scratch. OpenCanvas (just experimenting) and Photoshop CS3.

More pieces to come. Thank you. Don't forget to full-view.

Hardly "pathetic fan art" :) Really beautifully painted and I like how the rim lighting provides just enough effective definition of Discovery's shape. Both planets are nicely detailed - painterly but fully evocative of the real deal. If I have one quibble it's that the lighting on Io and Discovery does not seem to match Jupiters?

Not pathetic in my opinion. I love both movies.
Nice work, especially on Jupiter's surface :thumbsup:

Awesome "photography".
The 2001 ship definitely has an old fashion design, but your space set is beautiful. The gas giant looks terribly huge. Excellent.

The Discovery looks so fragile against the imposing ancient might of Jupiter. These films, and this image, really conveyed the message that Man has no place being there. It's a great painting that captures the true nature of space; cold, hostile, and mysterious.

Considering your location, i'd have thought you'd be more eager to paint the Leonov :P

I just love your Discovery Alone pic, it is just mind-blowing beyond words. I was just wondering if you have more plans of doing pictures of the Discovery one floating abandoned above Io and Jupiter like this one? Very dramatic looking!

I don't pften see many gas giant planets in space art, but this one really reminds me of jupiter...I can only imagine how huge it would be compared to the smaller planet which kinda looks like Mars.

Beautiful work. You are inpiring me to do something like it. About the planets, Shouldn't the shade be all in one side. I mean jupiter light source is from the left and the moon and the spaceship is from the bottom. Never the less beautiful.

That's an awesome piece of work! It has a beautiful background, and it effectively gets the viewer to focus on the strangely-designed vessel in the shot.
Great work!
