I lost count but I have worked about 40 hours on this, took me about a week or so. I made this using GIMP 2.6 and Photoshop CS2. I painted the ships and planet in GIMP and the rest was done in Photoshop CS2.
Now the Planet in the background is Planet Delta home to the good guys and there ship is the fighter class ship in the lower corner, there ships are always in blue since they think that is a colour that symbolizes: 'Pure'. The other ship belongs to the bad guys, they are the Heltain who came from Planet Helta, Planet Deltas next door planet. The Heltas ship in the top corner is a capital class ship. Now you're wondering why one fighter is going up against that huge ship, well the Deltas fighters are more then they appear to be.
