Ancient Spaceship by RadoJavor Ancient Spaceship by RadoJavor
Second attempt to visualize upcoming movie Prometheus. This time some ending scene when the space jockey race arrived to earth. Their ship is ancient and should look very different and superior to human vessels. My goal was to make a ship similar to the derelict in the first alien movie, just much bigger and different configuration.
Hope you like it and we can now just wait till next summer when the movie will be released.
All done in Photoshop and wacom intuos as usual.


There are two versions of this picture. if you got a older one please delete it, this one is better.

One of the best organic ships I've seen. I've got a trilogy of books that all feature an organic ship on the cover. While there are no plans for a fourth book, I think it would be wise to go ahead an acquire a worthy organic tech rendering just in case, and this piece is magnificient. What's your asking price for using this commercially as a book cover? feel free to e-mail me at literaryfederation@gmail.com

If you wanted to make it look superior to human vessels, than certainly you did it. That thing looks like being milenia old, and no human would now try to make ship look like a dragon. Its superiority is undoubtful and it is the kind of ship that should take off to another planets

I like the concept of ancient space crafts looking ancient, by our standards. The notion is somewhat paradoxical, as they're obviously not made of wood and rocks...
