Flight to Wayland by Angelstorm-82 Flight to Wayland by Angelstorm-82
The WIPīs are over now! Finally! This is the final drawing of my Imperial Star Destroyer (Allegiance class) :D. This drawing took me almost 2 months of hard work. I donīt know how long in hours, sorry. I used several references to make this drawing come alive. As first the amazing Star Destroyer [link] originally created by Ansel Hsiao (Fractialsponge). I used also a reference of him for the Imperial shuttle [link]

As first I started with the Destroyer and I thought I would get nuts drawing this beast. But later I decided that the Destroyer itself would look boring and so I added some planets and a Nebula. My last add was the huge planet in front (Wayland). I got the idea to all this as I remembered one of my favorite novels from Star Wars EU. The Thrawn trilogy ;). Who knows the novels and - or the comics will know what Iīve drawn here ;).

The drawing itself is 1/3 larger than A2 (my biggest since over 3 years) and all is done entirely in graphite. The starfield was created with some kind of white gel pen.

I hope you like how this one turned out. I really like it thatīs for sure.
So last but not least watch it in fullview and become nuts :evillaugh: :).

WIPīs can be found all in my scrapfolder and you can also watch a short video on Youtube [link]

Thatīs all. Thanks for looking and everything. Allan

PS: The planet is slightly inspired by the Mars.

Daily Deviation

Flight to Wayland by *SilentDeath007 Suggester says: "More than just being technically impressive, the amount of dedication required in crafting this is truly amazing. His gallery is full of other equally impressive works that deserve a look." Also suggested by *bloknayrb ( Suggested by Stevebot-7 and Featured by MacRebisz )
Hi Silentdeath007. First let me congratulate you on a truely stunning piece of art. If I had the funds I'd buy it of you. How you've captured the depth and feel of space is quite stunning. I also want to comment on the way you've played with the light. These thing you master perfectly. I do think though, that you should have been more aggressive with the shadows. If they were darker the ship would jump much more out of the paper. I realise that the soft shadows are so because you want to show the immense detailing, but if you hid some of it in hard shadow and instead put some lights/windows in the darkest parts I think this would truely stand out. Also it seems to me that the perspective is off. The right side of the superstructure is way longer than it should be, and the angle of the bow is a little wrong. The choice of angle shows real courage though, because getting perspective right with such shallow angles is quite hard. I also want to comment on the composition which I think is very good. There is perfect balance in the picture. I look forward to seeing more of your work, well done!

Holy samolians!!! Excellent work!!!
Very detailed and impressive. Looks like a real photo snapped from another ship!
Congratulations on your amazing talent-I wish I could draw like this. My work generally takes about 2 months as well-but that's to a large degree because of work.

Oznerol-1516 Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's so perfect and stunning, is magnificent, impresive... Basicaly it how an artwork should look. The amount of detail and dedication is something to behold. Your technique cannot be better and the theme for the artwork is superbly chosen. Fractalsponge's design are detailed and complex as hell so you diserve more credit and recognition, for the masive difficulty this drawing has. And also set in Thrawn's Trilogy! What could be better!
Thanks for doing artworks like this, was a pleasure to see something so complex and beautiful as this drawing is.

(Just create a tag for recognize your work: the deviant's url is not aesthetic. I want to do my wallpaper, and I and see the type of details)
Ragerancher Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012
This is amazing. The only thing in particular I want to point out though is it looks to me as if the front of the destroyer is twisted in relation to the back, so looking form the front backwards, the front is twisted clockwise.
