Overview

Grand Space Opera (GSO) is a stunning showcase of adrenaline-fuelled science fiction digital art.

See astounding art that spans galaxies, and contains action, drama, adventure, excitement, intrigue, romance . . . all the elements that make up a thrilling science fiction fantasy. In addition, this is an invaluable learning tool, as some hand-picked images have "how to" sections, explaining the 3D or 2D methods used.

All of the images in GSO were created for one of Ballistic Media's CG Challenges—the biggest community of digital artists fighting it out in the world's biggest digital art competition. The challenge was set with terms like Megalithic, Gargantuan, and Epic, and those brave enough to accept the challenge delivered in unprecedented numbers. Only the best images were chosen for this invaluable resource, and are shown in Ballistic's renowned high quality format, in which images maintain all their vibrancy and detail from the screen to the page.

This is an extraordinary book. One does not simply glance at it; you will immerse yourself in its majesty, in it "grandness." The content in this book provides a timeless and invaluable learning tool, a mass of inspiration, and a link to a vast global community. Benefit from the decades of learning the showcased artists share in GSO, and for a meager US $39.00 you'd be a little nuts not to have it in your collection—quality has never been so affordable.
