231: TAKE FLIGHT BRAVE AXELAY by crybringer 231: TAKE FLIGHT BRAVE AXELAY by crybringer
Some Photoshop practice with my tablet... making a convincing depth of field effect is hard, so I'm afraid this looks a bit flat and amateurish... but the colors bring the ship out a bit, I think.

It's been a few years, but Yep, I still play it on my Wii.

I can't seem to beat my old score on hard mode.

That rocks so hard. I love Axelay, and it's wicked to see some art of it that ISN'T from the box. Kudos my friend, I'd pay for a print of this.

Ohmigodohmigodohmigod!

SOMEONE ELSE WHO BELIEVES IN THE BEAUTY THAT IS AXELAY! Sorry for the caps, I just could not help it, the button had to stay down because somehow that expresses my joy for this picture.

Seriously, I love that game hardcore, even managed to get the secret message from arcade mode something about Axelay 2 that never came out. But yeah uhm.

You certainly did that game and ship itself justice man, I absolutely love this. And through this picture, you are now absolutely my favorite artist on Deviant Art, hands down.

Thank you for making a gamer nerd like me happy. =']

I remember my grandfather used to take photos from his gliders, even when you're IN the air, perceiving depth in the air or the clouds is difficult without a wide shot.

that was the only konami shooter to have the patented 'warp-scroll' (tm) effect where the world just kind of rolled at you from the top of the screen. :lol:

*3* I've always wanted to draw a space opera comic..I actually tried to in the 8th grade. Haha. Let's not talk about that.

The only thing I can't do is the tech stuff..like ships. I envy you, sir!!

Maybe less vibrant clouds, like a slight haze or diffusion of colors back there would help? Y'know, kinda to make it seem 'out of focus' a little...? Or something. Just a thought. Lovvin the works as usual. =]
