The Refinery by hoevelkamp The Refinery by hoevelkamp
The Refinery

This is the last run. The reservoirs are empty. Three tanker full of finest fuel. After this the fleet has to seek elsewhere. The Refinery is dead. Dead and empty. Left to rot in hard vacuum. Without the mining ships there's nothing left to do for the Refinery. Without raw materials the Refinery has lost all its worth. Maybe the scavengers will come and take it apart for metals, maybe not.

Done for the #Psycho-Logics contest.

Enjoy!

Vielen Dank. Ich glaube der obere Vordergrund wirkt etwas flach wegen des Blickwinkels und des dichten Schattens in dem Bereich. Ich war am Ende etwas "Betriebsblind" schätze ich. :D

Guess nothing lasts forever, it would be quite eerie if humans disovered an old and long-abandoned structure like this that wasn't ours :paranoid: I love how the small star clusters came out :toocool:

Hi Matthew. Don't know if you read about their contest, I thought it's a good theme and setting, so this picture came pretty naturally to me. To find an alien artifact, a life long dream. :D Thanks a lot.

Vielen Dank. :) Ich konzentrier mich jetzt erst mal ein wenig auf 3dsmax und das modellieren von Raumschiffen und so. Mein größtes Problem in dem Bereich ist das texturieren, aber da komm ich auch noch hinter. :D
