Chris Foss (5)
A further selection from British Artist Chris Foss one of the true masters of Sci-Fi Art.
I’ve collected these sample’s together as they best serve to highlight the elements I find most interesting in Chris’s work. IMO these are the ship designs themselves (naturally) the striped and checkered lexicon he adorns these craft with, the simply stunning cloud fields, Aurora and rock formations, but of course most importantly of all – it’s all about the lighting.
A little more about the samples:
Top: This design typifies all of Chris’s aforementioned traits, a bulbous, large vented craft wrapped with industrial zig-zagging descending through a heavenly cloudscape…
Second: A breathtaking alien vista, incredible lighting tricks here, love all the soft glows.
Third: Something of a Gerry Anderson “Thunderbirds” feels here, again it’s all about the markings.
Fourth & Fifth: two different craft designs, one cylindrical the other very geometric, poised at very similar angles – great atmospheric effects (corona/dustclouds).
