The only thing keeping me from +favvin this thing is the background isn't complete. The scanlines ruin it for me. If it was mine I would have done the starfield throughout the image. Good work though with the render and brushwork.
this is pretty intense! i really like it. i wonder where the whole mangled (but at the same time shiny smooth geometrical mangled) metal with intense light rays etc. idea came from. it's cert. spawned a lotta lotta slick artwork!
the bar of texture along the back is nice too. reminds me of two things: 1) the milky way 2) shining lights in the ocean reflecting off little bits (plankton, grit etc.)
