Love it.  This gives me some ideas for the setting of a story/novel that's been brewing in my mind.

Happy to hear that :-)
My works are intended to be filled with the watcher's fantasy indeed... just a starting word from which everyone can build his own story :-)

Wow. Not only is this an excellent execution of art, but it sends chills down my spine to think what this image means; what transhuman conflict or war would've resulted in such a desolate metropolis. One of my favorite pieces ever! Stupendous job!!!

Stunning detail in every single image and I'm in awe with how effective the simple fractals provoke worlds of their own. Outstanding!

The thing in the Middle looks like a broken Railway. Really nice.

Questa mi piace in maniera particolare perche' qui si nasconde molto il "tecnico" e salta fuori lì"artista". Voglio dire che in un fumetto di fantascienza nessuno si domanderebbe se questo e' un frattale e come e' fatto....Secondo me molto bravo qui!!! mi piaci ai massimi livelli !!!!

Grazie Doriano, che bel commento!
Non sai quante volte sono tentato di postarli in sci-fi o categorie simili... poi magari qualcuno si lamenta perché sono frattali...
In effetti non riuscirei a riprodurne nemmeno uno, se non per le forme; il lavoro in Photoshop su colori e luci è diverso per ognuno, e lungo e impossibile da ricordare ;-)

Comunque credo che quest'ultimo sia davvero speciale. In mano a me finirebbe invariabilmente per essere "rovinato" e popolato da alieni o da astronavi vaganti ma e' bello gia' cosi' e non ha bisogno di altro. Qualora ti lasciassi tentare dai "malvagi-evil-manipoulators" anche solo per curiosita' su un tuo futuro lavoro siamo qui....pronti a metterti enterprises, pianeti e laser...ah ah - si vede che facevo videogames!

A very well made piece. Could you explain your reasoning as to why you consider it a failure
Reply
:iconvidom:
Vidom Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The decaying city is the image of the failure, not my try to depict it :-)

Main idea of transhumanism is using technology to limit aging in people and make them live indefinitely, but I believe that death and fast switching between generations is what made us evolve.
Take an amoeba, if you keep cutting it in 2 it always survives (the part with the nucleus does); it's practically immortal! Yet it never evolved in millions of years, even if its genome is a hundred of times larger than human's one :-)
That's why I believe no such technology could work on a biological level, even if perfectly working :D

And thanks! :-)
