Excidium
The end of a beautiful day

So what? What if everything is fine or even nearly perfect and then the worst case happens. How to react? Just accept it or try to fight against it?

And no... everything is fine (at least for me. just a bit busy but who isn't) It's just a question I'm asking myself from time to time. I had a lot of dreams in which the world ends (my world). And my brain explores different ways of handling the situation. Sometimes I just gave up. Sometimes I tried to reach the persons I love before the end. Sometimes I just enjoyed the last days of my life and they were beautiful.... peaceful and warm. And sometimes I experienced the feeling of dying. The heaviest dream I can remember was the one where a nuclear bomb detonates above my hometown. I was feeling the fire burning my skin. I don't know how it feels if your skin is burning because I never experienced it in reality. But if it's like in my dream, I never never never want to die this way.

Some deeper thoughts this time, I'm sorry for bothering you. But that's what art is for, isn't it? Expressing feelings.

I hope I'm not the only one having such dreams... that would scare me :D

:bulletred: Back to the picture:
base is one of my panorama shots that can be seen here: [link]
Rest is Photoshop and done with my graphic tablet.

:bulletred: 12000x7500px original (caused by the panorama)
:bulletred: 1,5gb psd before merging :O (I should merge it earlier, I know... but that's the advantage of digital art... to work with layers)

This picture is really mind blowing in nature. I love the otherworldly nature of it, and I love how powerful it is. The planet exploding, I feel like I might as well be watching it from the surface of the planet on the bottom. So the vision is a perfect score.

The originality? I have seen things on this note before, displaying the incredible beauty and power of outer space. But I like what you have done with this one. The colors in this one really bring out the intensity of the situation, and you really look like you put a lot of thought and work into making it perfect.

I am going to do impact first. I love the fireball that is careening down toward the planet. I can just imagine the inhabitants watching the fireball coming toward them, knowing they are going to die, and knowing they can do nothing about it. I am not certain what destroyed the planet. But it really is an amazing portrayal of it.

Technique? I really have nothing to add. The picture of the sun rising or setting in the distance and the planets in the sky and the moon to the right of it, it is really all just incredible. I love it. I am really impressed.
What do you think?

Wow, this is awesome man! :+favlove:
I wonder how many time you spent by doing this masterpiece, I see you mixed some photos for city and photoshoping, but did you used 3D? the lights are pretty acurate.
That orininal size is indeed huge, I suppose if I print it in a resolution of 150dpi it would fit perfectly in my bedroom wall. :omg:

Naw Dreams of such type are of the Norm for those with a greater grasp for "Reality" and beyond its functions, I've also had such dreams and I'm a fighter if there is an Army that would come to destroy everything and every runs I'll grab on of my sword head into battle and do what I can, or a gun depending on the situation. Lovely picture btw

I know what you mean... me, I'm a fighter...
in all my dreams, I always go down fighting... so isn't that a good indication of what I believe? If one has very strong beliefs, preserving them and portraying them is usually the primary instinct.

Anyway, great work, yet again... :+fav:

Happy New Year!
