Amazing BGs man. I think...I think I'm starting to become a little jealous of your awesomeness and consistency XD. Aside from the ramblings of a lesser skilled painter, I have to say that the atmosphere is very enveloped. Everything feels nicely tucked in, your painting style demonstrates that well. The Impressionism is oozing from the horizon, and streaks into the cityscape. The only improving critique I have for this is maybe add in darker shades for the most foreground of objects. Great masterpiece as always!

Kamikaye responds:

Thanks a lot :) Yea, darker details in FG would have been nice, I'll take that into account for the next one !

Awesome! I like how the sun set contrasts the darker blue of the structures and encroaching darkness.

Kamikaye responds:

Thank you :)

I want to touch this picture :)

Kamikaye responds:

Hah thx :)

It was the last chance we had, Our last stronghold before they breached the compound holding the last salvation on planet Harpsudry, Even within these times of advanced warfare the unique honor of waiting until sunrise still holds true even for alien lifeforms, A respite that could save, or destroy us as we know it.

They came in packs, menacing, ugly, and brute, A rememberance of a archaic human characteristics, So much that our drone pilots in the early war had given them their name, The Bushikaze, When we had first discovered the Bushikaze, their ships had such a crude look we had almost mistaken them for early 22nd century probes, There is still speculation that we actually had given them the technology to rapidly advance their abilities before we even had known of another species in the universe. But even so it was clear now, They were out for us, Our planets, our technology, Every human planet has been pillaged by the Bushikaze, save a few left in the undiscovered Gliese and thankfully our homeworld, Earth in Sol. They were after it all.

There was a ship being constructed on every outer world since the first war was lost, and our first worlds fell, Tonight on Harpsudry, the gargantuan freighter nicknamed "The Big Ant" Would be completed, Carrying multiple habitation modules to the constellation Lyra, millions of colonists of Harpsudry were already prepared to begin the docking procedures, Thousands lined outside of each module where holo-cards were scanned and biometrics checked out to confirm DNA...
Rhos was just showing his displayed credentials to a docking guard when a whizzing sound started up behind him, He looked up and his mouth fell open "Awh, Fuck!" Rhos witnessed the de-cloaking of a thousand Bushikaze bombs as they plummeted towards Toryn, The capital city of Harpsudry, Already the Defence deck was buzzing with hundreds of fighters, interceptors and cruiser-class bruisers nicknamed "Dregg's" were taking off, The system was in high alert, the pilots took their naps in their machines of labor and love, and all were thankful.

The payload of choice for Bushikaze was highly-deadly helium-infused lead bombs, They dropped excruciatingly slow through the thick atmosphere, tumbling towards the surface, all while hundreds of Bushikaze fighters descended just below the bombs trajectories, ready too fight....

Wow, you must have been really inspired :D Epic story bro !
