I like this page looks. It almost has an abstract look to it. You can make video games? I tried using torque game engine to make a video game I came up with but the learning curve was too high.

If you want further space adventures, then checkout my video game.
Here is the link to download the Executable. It is virus free and will not hurt your computer.

Good luck you f*cking space cadets.

They are dumb fucks. They probally like abstract art...yuck...or even worse anima. If they are too stupid to see the difficulty in making a piture like this work...photographs or not...they are not worth listening to.

"full page comic style"
What do you think about traditional comic layouts versus 1-painting-per-page layouts?

I thought I would post the original page of paintings, which was created using a traditional box sequence page layout.

I'm sure this helps to communicate narrative events in a more digestible format, but the purpose of the style I have been using (1-painting-per-page), is to attempt better engrossment / emersion into the the visual/graphic experience, with wide-screen paintings, like a slide show movie.

Thanks! I studied actual manufacturing robot arms, and a bit of oil-platforms. After I get the forms laid out and shaded, then I needed to develop the sparse composition. So, I made it on an elevated platform, and then the oil-platform shapes, and then experimenting, and then finally I cheat. I cheat by layering texture photos. The texture photos are photos of like jet engines and car engines, etc. I rework some detail based on happy accidents with the texture photos. I posted this painting on and they all told be to go back to drawing cubes and spheres, and stick figures.
