Powerplant by AlexRuizArt Powerplant by AlexRuizArt
**updated version December 2010**

here's something I've done in Painter....now that I'm teaching a class entirely on this program, I've learned how to control it just a little better:) In case you're interested, here's the place in LA where I'm teaching: [link]

Wow... that really is amazing. 'Epic' in its true meaning. The little points of light are what make it come to life. An awesome depiction of science fiction destruction :D

First assosiation, which came into my mind was: Giger meets Cylons.

Great concept. Love the style and the colors are superb.

I'm no where near LA, I'm just outside of Seattle.

I was curious, looking through your impressive gallery- you use such vibrant colors- do you work in colors DURING the creation process, or do you work in black and white and color once you've got your image set? I've always envied the concept artists-I would love to be able to create new alien worlds.

most of the time I start with a very low saturated palette, as colors can build nicely that way...the problem with starting b&w is when
you convert to color, it takes a bit of extra work, so as not to have that 'converted from b&w look'!:)

you can see my video process here: [link]

You know... I would love to see you paint your own version of the Space Jockey 'derelict' ship from ALIEN in this style. For some reason the biorganic with the transparent look would be perfect for Ridley's prequel.

Excuse me sir, but do you know what the name for this style of building architecture is called? (EX: Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Retro)

I'm an artist looking for some aid.

I think the cloud behind the head lookin thingy kinda kills the solidness of the structure.
Still it's a nitpick. Rest is really nice.
