New Mercury by ZwordArts New Mercury by ZwordArts
Around one of the oldest space colonies of humanity, New Mercury is a big asteroid field which is perfect for young pilotes to learn to fly their spaceships. New Mercury is with 7 Moons also one of the biggest colonies of humans. It was colonised only 3035 years a. chr. when the new space gate technology was freshly discovered.


Huh, something new. Worked on it about 5 hours on a size of 4000x2328 in Gimp. Everything is selfmade.
Hope you like it.

this artwork very much follows laws about how lighting would work and its very captivating with the space debris and the nebula catches the eye making it seem as if its a picture from a ship, the planetary artwork is well made and looks realistic from the land masses to the shadows on dark side. the space crafts though blurry look nice after all they would be when moving, and the trails look good based on theory. the planet seems a bit familiar thought, but all in all its appealing to the mind and is visually engaging, so from an honest opinion i love it.
What do you think?

Also the planet in the background bears a striking resemblance to the "Legendary Planet" seen at the end of Halo 3 and during the Halo 4 trailer.

The motion blurs in the foreground are a nice touch, though I'd love to have a clearer image of one of the ships.

Nice stuff. Are you a fan of Alistair Reynolds or Iain Banks? I've read almost everything by both of them.
