While playing No Man’s Sky I've been turning my favorite screenshots from the game into classic sci fi novel covers. I've made three so far: Ascendant Eden, The Satellite Sun, and The Scavenger of Eden.
@TandyQ the $1.25 is possibly the best part but seriously you absolutely aced the style and you used the screenshots perfectly
@TandyQ Honestly, pretending I'm playing inside book covers is my favorite thing of playing this game
@TandyQ SO Good. IIRC these classic sci fi book covers were inspiration for the artstyle of the game in the first place. So, mission accomplished, I'd say?
@nocksock Yes, exactly! Hearing that inspired me to make these, actually. I wanted to bring it full circle.
@TandyQ it’s actually awsome how well NMS works for screenshots and photoart?
As a digital painter I’ve been using my screenshots as landscape drawing references for example.
@Doggo Yeah, absolutely! There’s something about how the procedural generator makes such unique worlds that really works for this sort of thing. Using them as reference for landscapes is an awesome use as well!
@TandyQ but these look really awsome! They’re v good screenshots and work very well for the covers used :3
@TandyQ Dear people who think NMS is unthinkable to like, it's pretty. There's other shit but it's pretty
@TandyQ Awesome cover. I read this at first as 'Crimson Divide' and when I realized I made a mistake I thought to myself -- this is a good name too. But it sound more 1980s fiction than 1960s and 1970s.
@TandyQ Damn, these are fantastic! Really reminds me of the pulpy paperback books my town library used to offer.
