Finally Launching!



Eeep! It has holes as big as a house. It looks quite incomplete. There are lotsa mistakes and flaws. But I had to kick it out! It was a creative thrombosis! I have a few ideas for some other paintings - but I didn't want to start anything until I had this painting done. And it was dragging on and ooon and ooooon! So I finished it - not as I would have liked it to be - but I don't want this to be the last piece I'll ever do.

I hope you like it nevertheless as it is - there is quite a bit of work in it. I made the first sketch for it over two years ago if I remember correctly. Still stuck in my creative black hole, I was already happy to get a sketch out. That I actually completed it, is a bit of a triumph for me - you know why if you've read this blog's profile.

I probably will make a 'making of' if anyone is interested. Please let me know.

And now, to bed with me - up way past my bedtime! See you soon! Cheers :)

I love it, man! I would also love to see a making-of, 'cause I really liked the one you did of the soldiers-on-alien-planet (another painting I really liked). Keep it up!

P.S.: Hi, Peter :)

I think this a stunning peice.

Don't worry about scientific innacuracy or whether this craft could fly or not, it's impressive regardless.

Personally I like the small Jet plane, real nice design. I'd love to see some renders of the rest of it if that's possible.

Been through your blog and seen a vast hole where the comments hould be (guilty) but your work is very impressive and I shall be following it, well done.

Even when you consider it unfinished. it can inspire and feed the soul.

This is a great piece. I really love the dynamic of the ship and the people walking around in the launch bay.

I look forward to seeing more.

Awesome work Peter!

I would like to see the making of as well.

BTW, I got to your blog through the conceptships.blogspot.com website.

I wouldn't have given a second thought to missing details, the whole thing just took me to a mental flight.
