Now a loooong list of thanks :) First of all many thanks goes to *TixoL because his collab with =thiagochackal gave me an idea of this . Don't know how you did that, but thanks :XD: Hope you'll finish that collab soon xD). Next thanks goes to everyone at #spaceart chat, thank you for your support guys! I owe you one (or two) :ahoy:!

Amazing piece!!! Color, sense of scale, light and depth... Awesome!!! The Buddha detailed on the side of the ship is way cool and when zoomed in to see that i really got a further sense of scale when saw the detail of the hanger bay... Man, that ship is huge!!! The first thing that caught my eye was the shape of the mining vessel and how it resembled the Sulaco... Sure this isn't a Weyland Industries project in disguise???

Has a great "Homeworld" vibe, with its more vertical orientation and thruster glow. Love it!

I can honestly say the first thing that went through my mind when I saw this, (Besides HOLY CRAP!!) was the picture of Makaan's Flagship in Homeworld 2.

This is nonetheless, incredible.
I think I'll stare at it a few more minutes.

Yeah, it's obviously inspired by Homeworld 2, but I didn't want to just rip any particular ship from the game, that's why I designed my own one :D

Indeed.

It seems a lot of the space artists here on DA are fans of Homeworld.
Though personally, I don't see how you could play the games and NOT become a fan of them.
