For Fans By Fans: Andromeda Silhouette

The winners have been announced in For Fans By Fans‘s Mass Effect N7 Day challenge, and Andromeda Silhouette by Lazare Gvimradze is my favorite of the bunch. It’s a strong use of the art-inside-a-silhouette concept, made especially interesting because of how accurately the character’s face is shown in the structure of the clouds. I like that while the top of the piece tries hard to make the silhouette come to life, the bottom half does the opposite and allows the landscape scene to take the lead. This choice allows both inside and outside to have equal importance, and emphasizes the height of the scenery. That exaggerated height is perfect for a design about space exploration, and it feels very right to see both the beauty of the planetary landscape and the distant moon in the same moment, far away and yet both within your sights.

Printed artists at For Fans By Fans earn a commission per sale of their design.
