Close encounters of the first kind by JJcanvas Close encounters of the first kind by JJcanvas
Another quick piece for fun and experimentation.

Now I'm not saying that it's aliens, but....

Oh! It refers to the "Hard to be a God" Soviet sci-fi by Strugatsky brothers, right?

My Greetings Blinck,

Could I possibly get your permission to use this amazing art from your gallery in my article about a card deck at hearthitup.com?

Best Regards Konrad,

I like how you put your idea together by adding horses, spears, space ships and those old fashion warriors in a desert looking area.

I've been reading a ton of Brandon Sanderson's books, nad when I first saw the mix of old and new, I really did think that a Shard had come to those rider's world, and they were all subsequently doomed because of it.  DOOOOOOMED.

Finally I found it again! This is such an interesting concept and I love the texture and the formation of the rocks. The 'fleet' is well made too!

Agreed! Having ancient Romans invaded by aliens would make a far more interesting film than another modern day alien invasion of New York. ;)

Totally worth seeing... if they ever film one. =D Generally speaking, the concept of an alien invasion in a different time period is always interesting; in my eyes at least. Everyone else thinks it turn out like 'Cowboys vs Alien' :iconyoyorealysadplz:

I honestly wonder, how the Romans will perceive something like this though...

Nope, not aliens, it is just the Galactic Imperium come to claim its rightful tribute.  Which is delivered entirely in space potatoes, much to the Imperium's chagrin, as they all went bad on the hyperspace jaunt back to home base. ;) Great painting, I love how the space fleet looms out of the clouds over a landscape of weird rock formations shrouded in mist... gives the art a sense of mystery.  Great work on the mounted warriors, too!
