This one was inspired by one of the best artists ever, Ralph McQuarrie.
I thought it should be at 2D since 70% is photoshop.
I know the composition is not the most fortunate one. The initial sketch had a simple "one point perspective" composition, but I've tried to experiment with something more complex...and failed :)) That's why it's called trial and error. Anyway, I've put too much effort into it to throw it away, so here it is. Max for 3D, Photoshop for painting.
