Battle for Earth

Here is the second sci-fi image in my effort to expand my portfolio with some hard sci-fi images (the first is two posts down). Not a bad first effort at this kind of thing, though, I think that my over dependence on line art gives it more of a comic book feel--not that there is anything wrong with comic book illustration, it's just not what I had envisioned when I started. However, in terms of my goal to pad my portfolio with a hard sci-fi I think it is a success and definitely a departure from most of the sci-fi work I have done in the past, which typically been in the realm where sci-fi overlaps with fantasy. Like this illustration inspired by Edgar Rice Boroughs the Princess of Mars, which is more fantasy then sci-fi.
