Pillars of life by AdamBurn Pillars of life by AdamBurn
Based on the piece Pillars of Hope this is basically a similar system of planets thrown far from their original home due to a collosal super nova. They survive now thanks to the pillars of life that emit a regenerative radiation that sustains life on the planet.
Coupled with the giant habitat towers these planets are full with life.

Used that nebula piece I made and made it better, added some more aspects like a super nova remnant and a contrasting coloure, unfortunately due to a photoshop cock up I was unable to work on the nebula further as the PSD file became corupt for some unknown reason, fortunately I was able to open the file in illustrator but only as a flat image.

Anywho Im actually happy with how it turned out, a soft and rather calm piece.

Enjoy

Does look really peacefull, the rays falling down on the front and leaving a kinda peacefull darker region on the bottom seem to give it that sort of 'god ray' quality.

Maybe its just me but you seem to have started to include more ambient, far away stars in the background.

It's vewy purdy!

This is pretty sleak. I like the way you used that nebula and it looks a bit better now indeed with a filled "negative" space hehe.

Wadup with that glow on the big planet there? the upper side of it.

Neat piece man, it's cuul :thumbsup:!'

I saw this and thought "Hasn't this already been submitted?" :D


Neat work, I'm always surprised by the weird, alien feel of many of your pieces - its something I don't think anyone on DA has or will be able to imitate to anywhere near as high a degree of quality as you can. Great details as usual, but I've noticed alot of your pieces nearly always have a really epic, powerful light source. Something dim might be interesting :)
