Eden Rising by AdamBurn Eden Rising by AdamBurn
The 2999, Mankind has come so far in the last 1000, learnt so much and changed, living in peace on Mars and in huge space stations. Their technology turned towards a cleaner future to preserve the planet they now called home, terraforming technology meant Mars fast became a place of salvation during the worst climate turn Earth ever had in the late 2100's. Mankinds constant use of fosil fuels and strip mining finally caught up with them, the Earth was changed far beyond repair no matter how much they changed, instead of fighting a losing battle to save Earth with their early terraforming technology they decided to leave the planet to its fate and a mass exodus was started, huge station held many millions, many more moved onto the Martian surface, too many where lost to the Earths hostile state.
Now at the dawn of a new millenium the changed people decided to celebrate this monumental time by sending their latest technological marvel to Earth, a fleet consisting of 5 huge monolithic ships, together they formed the Genesis Rising fleet, a Terraforming fleet using advanced terraforming technology beyond anything mankind could have imagined. Their mission, retake Earth, a process taking 7 days, turning the planet from a hostile, dusty, lifeless world into a new eden, a beacon of hope, a monument to mankinds will. A new dawn has arrived, Genesis has arrived.

New image for the new Luminarium exhibit "GENESIS" a different looser style was used for this image, all painted using custom bruses and my usual collection of textures and some cloud photos.
