Excellent Banshee Fan Art Sets Waypoint for Wild Blue Yonder Update ID

We recently mentioned that there was some cool stuff over at DeviantArt, but that was an understatement! Overseer has put together this fantastic wallpaper image of a Banshee squadron moving in tight formation towards an asteroid belt. The scene appears to be lit by an Scylla-style anomaly in space. Gorgeous! Let Overseer know what you think here!
I loved the games (played them all) and the movie was awesome in my books as well. So this was kind of overdue.

There is not really a story to this; just a Banshee fighter wing on patrol and approaching a gravity well (or maybe a jump point into the unknown...).

  • Background: Textured environment (starfield), plus digital painting. My work. Thank you Google Earth for the planet/moon textures.
  • Meshes: Banshee fighter by Alan Hart.
  • Composition: Scene and lighting setup in LW, final composition in PS, including all FX.
  • Original size: 4750x2250, cropped, including frame with a record breaking (for me) 157 layers and a 1.9GB PSD file!

Banshees Dot the Entire Landscape Update ID

The Banshee has been a fan favorite fighter since it first graced the cover of The Price of Freedom. Ever since first being imported to the Prophecy/Secret Ops Vision Engine way back in 1998, it's been featured prominently in fan mods of games such as Homeworld 2, Starlancer, Freespace 2, X3 and Empire at War. It's also starred in a number of gorgeous physical projects. For starters, you can build a Banshee out of paper thanks to Thunderchild and PĂ©ricles. Astro Commander made a fabulous Banshee mini, Herr Koos made a medium size model and elend even built a large Banshee that's fit to be a museum piece. It's got quite a following!
