The Power of Tomorrow by jcbarquet The Power of Tomorrow by jcbarquet
Done for Desktopography 2012. Click on the link to see the collection of nature wallpapers! You can also download several different wallpaper sizes of this piece.

The image shows this idea I had about some big spaceships that use lava as their fuel or source of power. So every time they run out of gas, they have to travel to a volcanic area, drain some volcanoes and fill their tanks!

Painted in Photoshop with an Intuos tablet.

Fantastic job! I love the way the colors interact with the image and how it almost looks like it's taken with a camera. The way it looks like it was taken from a different planet with the mountains and volcanoes. Fantastic job, the detail of the picture is stunning and should be a work to inspire tons of people and their on artwork. Congratulations, keep drawing and good luck in your future works. This is worthy of a daily deviation and this artist should be followed by all. I look forward to what you have to offer in the future!

This is wonderful.

The tilted perspective and enormous scale lends to the juxtaposition of the structures and the figure. The lines and piping of the ships seem looks alternately sleek and utilitarian, a nice combination.

I like the colours you chose, as well as the faded look of the more distant structure. The colour depth and contrast is wonderfully dramatic, even though the scene is static(?).

The flocks of birds are a good touch and help set the scene, as do the planets looming in the sky.

In all, an excellent idea that you captured beautifully!

Just my two-cents!
Thank you for sharing this!

Absolutely beautiful painting. The contrast between the serene nature in the foreground and how mankind is busy destroying it in the background works great, and in combination with the tilted angle of the painting it also manages to get across the feeling of distress and impending doom, which the girl must be feeling, really well (because it symbolizes how her entire world is changing/shifting literally and figuratively)

Well in some cases of the game there are large mechanical structures. Some cases in the game you are on a lower planet that views in the sky the "cocoon planet"

Love it regardless :P
