This is an airbrushed painting of a moon/death star hybrid. I am not really that keen on sci-fi but wanted to airbrush a picture of a planet on a canvas. This was done with 3 colours: Black, white and green. I painted the planet first using a sketch as a guide. I painted the green colour first knowing that I only wanted a hint of it to show in the end.
Some masks were used to create the meteor strike area in the top left. When the main body of the planet was done I cut another mask for the planet to be able to paint the background jet black.
I found it quite hard to leave this one in this state. It feels somehow incomplete but didn’t want to overwork it with too many details. The picture is painted on a 50 x 50cm box canvas using acrylic airbrush paint.
