Good stuff you are really getting a lot out of the lasso tool.
btw could you please tell me how you did the lens flares in the first one? I am dying to know.

So you created it in AE and then pasted it into photoshop? I was hoping there was a way to do it in PS.

I'm amazed just how much atmosphere you manage to create using only rough shapes and effects. I bet one could produce brilliant storyboards before lunch break using this.
The blurred vessel in Thumbnail #2 is my favorite feature, it adds a lot of depth and perceived detail to the scenery. Also great choice of color, especially for the bottom one. :)

If it was not listed in "conceptual" I would have taken it for a finished minimal piece.

I have to ask for this again, lol if it isnt already out.

A tutorial of your technique, in depth on how you create your stuff.

Things like, What tools you use, how you get the lens flares that you do, what techniques you use for certain things.
And how you get the kind of gradient looking paint on the lasso tooled objects.

I ask this because its very important to myself for making backgrounds, and really breathtaking scenes like you make.

Im trying to make a comic myself, i need to be that reliable artist for scenery.

<_< I demand it, lol

looking good, could use some nebulae in the background in some of the more still ones.

It's more quicker than earlier! Looks like vector graphics..
Чувствуется РУКА, что много рисовал и теперь просто так накидываешь быстро, но качественно концепт.

For me, I'd say 1 and 4 are my favourites, and I'd love to see them expanded on :)

They've all got so much movement though, i love them :D

God damn it now you're at the point where you can just throw in a bunch of ambiguous shapes and gradients and colours and call it awesome and there's nothing we can do about it because... it IS

FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUuuuu-

I'm really fascinated by the way you manage to create such a great atmosphere with so simple shapes, the lighting is as well unique!
Lovable!

The first and the last is quite interesting basically due to the same element, personally I can't decide which of them looks better.. the warm tone and the cold tone are both really good looking.
However the warm tones suits an astroid field better methinks.

The black hole is interesting too, though it don't seem to be particularly big it is however a good composition and the lighting, but it could have had some more elements
I.e more planetary debris or dust building up more of a surrounding presence, since the stars or nebulas wouldn't be visible du to the light from the black hole

Overall great thumbs, but my favs are the first and the last they stand out from the rest.

And keep it up my friend, you've always been an inspiration and your art is pleasing the eyes! =D

I'm no space-art fan, I'm really not, but the one which appeals to me most would be the purple one, searching the wreckage of another ship or installation.

The one with the most interesting composition is the black hole one (orange, spiny vortex of doom).

I can't see any merit to the centre one. The fly-bys are pretty ok, I like the bottom one the most of the two, I'm not sure why that is. This might be the colour, probably is an aspect but I've been thinking for a while that depending on which side a composition faces different sides of the brain are appealed to, if I'm right about that then the content would need to be more logical or whimsical/abstract for the different sides.

Good work here Jama, variety is the spice of life. :highfive: :D

Твои скечи с лассо очень экспериментальны) особенно когда ты как левентеп начинаешь смешивать слои. Получается очень круто хочу уже почитать журнал с твоей статьей))
