All the diluted colors made me think these were concept art for a current-gen FPS.

Thanks submitter, now I have a geek-boner at work

That giant spider again, huh?

I've wondered just what audience Syfy is catering to these days.  This blog answers that question: someone with a really bland aesthetic sense.

My hopes of more Cowboy Bebop has been destroyed

See you Space Cowboy.

Erm, what the hell was that? Lots of confusing atmospheric raytracing with some lazer guns is my tentative guess.

Space cowboy?  I wasn't ready for that.

I got a big Robotech vibe from most of the cityscapes.

The construction of a Dyson Sphere one was my fav.

Close, those look like concept panels for the defunct 40K live action movie. Gave him some creative license on the Space Marines and Terminator armours.

You know that SyFy is developing a miniseries version, right? It could go either BSG or Sharknado. It is too soon to tell.

And the sad thing is that the first thing the new owner will probably do is remove it all.

Now I just thought of Homeworld.

I like to think about what the reaction would be if someone put this kind of art on a sci-fi book back in the fifties.  Also what kind of art would invoke those same feelings for us if the future sent us some of their art.

That didn't do anything for me, though Subby's headline at first had me wondering if this was a Space Dandy thread.

/undecided where I fall on that show

Ironically I have a bunch of science fiction art from the sixties my grandfather used in his books and lectures when he was working at NASA, and it was all really hopeful, "united mankind" golden age of exploration type stuff. The future was happy, hopeful, and bright.

BSG went Sharknado there at the end.

How are any of the pictures dystopian? None of the pictures present themselves as utopias with an underlying and fundamental falsehood.

You usually post good stuff. I know the internet and its citizen journalists have abused the word dystopia, but I would think here at Fark, people would use it correctly.
