The plot of this book reminded me one of russian stories, which was written in 1963 by Strugatski brothers: Hard to be a God. ([link])

There is a book with similar plot, which was written in 1963 by russians writers Strugatsky brothers. Russians have come to this idea first =D

Art is amazing, I like your attention to details!

This is rad, but that heat texture you've used on the jets looks like ass.

don't understand what you mean by "this is rad" and "looks like ass

Sorry, I didn't realise english was your second language.
The art is beautiful, but the texture around the jets to give the impression of heat doesn't look great. I think it would've been better without it.

friggin cool. I'm in love with the ship, would love to see the front of it. Like I'm just in love with the design man, I WANT MORE :eager:. The energy trail the ship leaves behind is spectacular. How did you create it ?

for the trail ship, try to play with the glass and ocean filters in photoshop with several different setting :)
