Legacy by AdamBurn Legacy by AdamBurn
A giant glowing orb hovers silently at the core of an alien Dyson sphere, at each of it's poles an array of massive spires seemingly hold the orb in place. What is the orb for and why was an artificial planet built around it? Or was it created there.
The artificial planet holds many mysteries, I wonder where that sun light is coming from, lets go find out.

Inspired by Halo 4 and my own series Telikos Protocol, I have always loved monolithic structures that seemingly go on forever and their simple geometric shape only adds to their scale. I will be doing some more paintings based on this "planet" one being how that sun is generated. Should be interesting.

Enjoy :ahoy:

If I may be allowed to theorize, I believe that the blue orb is not the Dyson Sphere's sun, but an artificial star, with a Dyson Ring surrounding it. The sun in the distance is the true star at the center of the sphere, and this blue star is a stabilizer, to prevent that true sun from moving even the slightest distance, and so to prevent it from burning the civilization within the sphere. Maybe the orb also powers a portal, so that species could go anywhere in the universe and quickly home without even a physical door to the outside of the sphere. Then again, it's all imagination.

I cant even begin to explain how absoultly superb ALL these master-pieces are! My mind is still grasping on the "HOW" you did all these. Ive only been drawing for a few years and I cant even come close to create the lighting and textures and......EVERYTHING like this. Theres a stadium of people cheering somewhere in the world, and they should be cheering for these. Amazing work.

You never fail to impress me. This really captures the grand scale of such structures. BDO's (Big Dumb Objects) and such were always fascinating to me, especially ones with geometric shapes that you have here. Well done.
