HW: Wrecks by MK01 HW: Wrecks by MK01
Been wanting to do something like this for quite some time...

Took a few screenshots from various Homeworld ships, arranged them nicely and proceeded to blow two of them up. Yes, damage is fun. Only problem is that they're technically still low-ploy models, so the quality of the ships isn't all that great.
I dunno, something seems missing here. It doesn't look quite how I wanted it to, but I can't quite figure out why. But I'm not going to touch the pic anymore. Maybe next time, huh?

I know the Kushan frigate got blown to pieces, but It must have put up one hell of a fight to take out a carrier and deal visible damage to the Missile Destroyer.

you should put the mothership flying past the wreckage like the end of a battle, like in the opening for homeworld 2

Poor Kushan ... great work!

The problem is clearly the wrecked Kushan ships. :P

Quick thought... Maybe if you add debris and/or a Fighter flyby or two...

Maybe it lacks the ever-present flares from dying ships and "damage-fairies", you know... the things that fly away from the engines outlet when the ship is dying.

The melting metal on the left fighter docking bay isn't as highlightet as the right one, perhaps that aswell?

Also, not for beign bitchy, not at all, I'm trying to help out... noticed that you used various stars over and over again, HW's background wheren't that loaded with stars, but the nebulas are nice, perhaps if you make'em a bit more cloud-ish?

Anyway, VERT nice picture. CYA next time!

WAIT.. wtf, were those in-game models?

Thats a dircet shot, right? or a render of your own.. i dont get it :hmm:

Simply speaking, it's an overpaint of in-game screenshots. The background is completely done by me, as are lighting effects and drop shadows, which the game engine wasn't able to do; the ships were arranged and 'damaged' by me. All in PS.

I know what it is, ships cant just be destroyed and have great big holes out of them without debris man! PUT IN DEBRIS! And a sneaky little kushan cloaked fighter, hiding under the belly of the carrier waiting to follow the taidan

It HAS composition for sure. i loved this image on first sight (on Relic Forums), and immediately saved it to my HD. The victorious Taiidan fleet is continuing it's patrol after annihilating the Kushan carrier group.
i wish i could draw such nice dmg effects and backgrounds in PS, i would do a lot of such images with all those Requiem War models;-)

Mmh, Requiem War Models... *drools*
And be warned: I intend to let the Kushan have their revenge! Or maybe I'll just blow up everyone equally.
Mmh, explosions...

no composition. rearrange the ships until it looks right

Yup, that's probably one of the things that don't feel right.
Maybe next time I could figure out the layout before I take the screenshots, huh?
