This is a sketch I created back in mid 2017 for a poster to a sequel of a game prototype called Hellstar that I developed and released during my time at university.
The game is a shoot-em-up seen from top-down perspective and is inspired by shoot-em-up action games from the 90’s.
I still dream about making Hellstar II a reality from time to time, and I have a lot of fun wrestling with ideas on how to bring this game to life.

The spacecraft depicted on the poster represents the player’s spacecraft.
It is a highly specialized spacecraft capable of traveling and engaging in combat in space as well as in the stratosphere.
