I tried a couple of new techniques on this one. First of all the starfield nebulae and gasses in the background were made thanks to a great tutorial I found on you tube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czhJfC1SuU0 I worked with values on this piece, blotting out the general shape of the starship in black then shading the 'light' on. Then I marked the two big zones for the purple and the orange and used gradient maps to apply the colour. The decals were a final touch giving the ship an almost tribal look with the diamon motif. Comments and Critiques are welcome and appreciated.
