Another page, another attempt at finding a suitable method for drawing starry backgrounds of the galactic core. This one's using GIMP: the Airbrush tool with funky settings for the stars, and the Ink tool for the dark clouds.

What's that, a totem pole in the middle?

You tellin' me you don't recognize The Great Eagle there?

Yeah, I don't really know. In the script and storyboard it was just going to be kind of an antenna in the foreground, but when it came to drawing it that didn't seem satisfying somehow, so it turned into this sort of outpost thingy. With a tower. Maybe there's moat around it that we just can't see in the dark.

I was thinking about how to justify the tower earlier, and uh...no I didn't come up with a great explanation. Oh well I suppose for point-to-point communication around this moon or even into space the higher vantage point the better, but it still seems to be taking things pretty far.

But you can never really have too many phallic symbols in art anyway.

Maybe that's why you call this "hard science-fiction."
