Prometheus by RadoJavor Prometheus by RadoJavor
This is my fourth and last painting inspired by Prometheus movie, requested by avp galaxy. The painting was done before the trailer got released and this was my vision of the ship. You can now see how close (or far) my guess was to the actual ship design from the film.
The scene shows some ancient orbital dockyards near a Space Jockey planet, this is the first encounter of the human explorers with alien technology.

Let me know any comments or critics.

All done in photoshop + wacom in couple of evenings.

OK, this is my first time writing a critique, so here goes:

Overall, this is a stunning piece. The compsition, the colours, the lighting and the design all work perfectly to create this visually... well, amazing piece.

Vision: It's very well presented, and the theme and idea are very obviously shown. You can't really go wrong when looking at this - it's very clear.

Originality: Although the idea is obvious, the brilliant balance of this piece shines through - the idea in itself is not entirely obvious - yes, it's a fan picture of a spaceship. But that doesn't really sum up the awesomeness of this picture. I think the fact that this comes from an interpretation, a vision of the artist's own idea of the ship, before it was even shown, is really quite original. Not only that, but the resemblance to the actual ship is, whilst not exactly the same, rather similar, and while maintaining style and originality, really fits in with the Alien series, as does the setting it's in.

Technique: Well. The first thing is, this is beautiful. Even though this is almost a monochrome piece, the shades are all so beautifully balanced, giving a sense of colour to the whole piece. The detail of everything; the ship, the sky, the background, really shows the effort put in. Every single line is there for a purpose and add to it.

Impact: Well, even from the thumbnail, this stood out immediately to me. Partly because of the name, I admit, but also because the colours were so different from the pictures around it. The deep, rich, subdued blues with the light streaming in from the right stood out and immediately hit me with a feeling of almost tense, yet relaxed excitement.
The ship itself stands out from the background, yet also blends in with it (due to the colouring, I think), giving it a lot of feeling; camouflaged, solitary, a sense of fighting alone,perhaps? I don't even know whatword sums it up; I just know that this picture makes me go: WOW. :)
What do you think?

The only thing I see wrong with this ship is it looks unable to land on a planet.

Very well done. The details of the ship, and even the background look great. Though the design kinda reminds me of a ship out of the Halo series. But overall, great job
