Aftermath by MatthewJMimnaugh Aftermath by MatthewJMimnaugh
:new: EDIT :new: uploaded the alternate for your viewing pleasure! [link]! Also I just broke 100 :+favs:'s on this! You guys totally rock!

:new: EDIT :new: : Updated the lighting; let me know if you like it. I am not sure how I feel :?


“I don’t think either side won this war, skipper.” ~original (too long) title.

The Story:

Two rival factions were so obsessed with destroying each other that their respective superweapons ended up destroying the planet on which they resided.

The Reason:

So my mates had already expressed an interest in a destroyed world, which gave me a pretty good idea. Then I saw Beyond the Frontier’s Lost Lands competition and I decided to do one to really stretch myself. So for three days I went pretty much nuts on Photoshop, bringing my A-game.

The process:

Started off looking at Voyager’s guide here [link] to get an idea as to what to do, seeing as there are no other destroyed planet tutorials. I am not a speed painter, but the idea got me going.

I also cruised some stocks to get some idea; I used these [link]§ion=&global=1&q=asteroid#/d3czr9, [link]§ion=&global=1&q=asteroid#/dpxgsz, [link]§ion=&q=dead#/d1d9fco, though there were many others that got my attention.

Hope you love it!
