Far Beyond: Scavengers by JoeyJazz Far Beyond: Scavengers by JoeyJazz
FAR BEYOND
---------------
Chapter I: Scavengers

And so we had finally found her. Hidden just on the other side of the Rufus debris field*. Argo, the capital ship of the Thessalian army - their jewel. Thessalians would have been wiped out much earlier without her - their uprising against the Central System Alliance lasted for 10 years and this battle vessel shot down more than 50 CSA battleships, countless fighters and some say that it even destroyed one Star Dreadnaught - a flying fortress.
Lost for more than 300 years - she seemed as she was just waiting for us to get looted. What we didn't know, though, was the reason, why it was 'hidden' in this forgotten dying system. I wish we'd never discovered it...

*Rufus was one of the 3 moons orbiting a planet Sinia14 - the closest one to the dying sun in the system D-11-08. It was deystroyed by the gravitational forces of the sun and the planet about 800 years ago. The remnants are called the 'Rufus debris field'.

Vivid colors - thats the mark of my 'Far Beyond' series. Don't worry - it won't be my major theme for my next space art pieces but every once in a while you'll experience a new chapter.

EDIT: Not SO vivid :D

so inspiring. just looking at this takes me away to a lonely solar system. the crushing emptiness surrounding. 
the colours really do a good job of conveying the age of the system. really great

Looks like you took a snapshot out the window of a ship rather than it being fantasy...

^^ Epic! In every meaning of the word!

I like the simplicity of it and the way you don't use generic dark space colors to paint a picture set in the void. You also did a good job demonstrating how small the main characters are in the grand scheme of things.

I love this one for iths great atmosphere. It draws you right into the scene - as if you were sitting on one of those asteroids watching those ships and the sun. Beautiful. Instant-faved it when I first saw this. :)

I think the thrusters should be really dark if not black. I mean, now it looks like they're more hot than a sun :)

I love the warm feel to it, the soft glow, and the over all rather calming atmosphere it gives. not too sure about some of the asteroids though, some look a bit off

Very nice, and a very natural-looking Sun too. Most are tempted to go overboard with shiny bits and lots of flares, but one looks more like a real photo with some of the light filtered out 8-)
