Reactors by JamesLedgerConcepts Reactors by JamesLedgerConcepts
The 5th painting I have done for maiagame. This image is not available to buy as it's copyrighted by the client.

maiagame.com/index.php - website

www.pcgamer.com/previews/maia-… - PCgamer

All my usual techniques, painted from scratch in Photoshop, using the vanishing point filter to set up perspective guides.

A very clean required look, so I only used the default hard round and soft round brushes to avoid unwanted textures.

To prevent all that horrid 'color banding' with gradients and subtle tone changes I changed my usual Photoshop bit mode from 8bit to 16bit, which is LOADS better with the 1000's of extra color tones.

That is smooth - this is what a reactor would look like if it was designed by Steve Jobs...

Hey yes, you're right, he would have done that. Should have called the image "iReactors'.
Might have been influenced by the imac I am working on to do my work.
