April 2009 - Daily Deviations
"Imperial Gravity Defiers" by ~sketchboook
On the one hand it looks funny, on the other one it looks scary. Nevertheless it is a very well painted scene. Make sure to check out the rest of his gallery as well. It is full of inspirational speedpainting.
"SPACE ANALOGY" by =EldarZakirov is truly a remarkable artwork. With purely alien elements this piece is filled with an exotic and mesmerising array of scenery - and its abstract and surreal sense beckons the viewers interest. It is, as equally so as it is interesting, just as beautiful in form and rendition.
"Sons of Orion" by `ukitakumuki
The future sure looks terrifiying, when humankind has to harvest extraterrestrial species for its own needs.
"Commander" by ~thegryph shows a very well painted scene with great light and a lot of nice details. Make sure to check out her other paintings as well!
"Nowhere to go" by ~kouki1
Do you feel the warm breeze coming from the still active engines? If not, just enjoy the sight. The image contains an awesome perspective and also has the right amount of details. If you are looking for some other cool renderings, you should check out the rest of her gallery as well!
"Rescue" by !designnrg
After five years on dA, this picture definately deserves more attention. The awesome contrast, the starting ships and the burning buildings make this picture extraordinary. Make sure to check out the rest of his amazing gallery.
Imagine a future when space is a rare good... what would it looks like? Buildings and towers from one horizon to another? Only possibility to go to work is to go by shuttle? "City Towers" by ~aksu is a high-quality picture that gives you a little foretaste of upcoming times.
"D e s o l a t i o n" by ~mancombseapgood
Depth Energy Space Orbiting Light Action Terra Impact Outlying Naturalness
"Heaven 2.0" by !viag
So this is what heaven looks like in the future..
"The hope" dies last. ~Diversebeing really knows how to display the feeling of loneliness. Just the dog and a beautiful sunset remain in the life of the man. Keep an eye on this upcoming artist!
"Children of Fire" by ~frenic shows a lovely executed matte-painting of extra-terrestrial life. It could be straight out of a science-fiction movie. If you like this picture, you're going to love the rest of his gallery!
"Robo Wrath" by ~likaspapaya
Everyone who does not think that way has to be smashed!
"Gleaming Streams" by ~Lyridae shows a well developed image with strong impact and amazing details. In the neighbourhood of such asteroids you need a planetary shield to survive.
"Valley" by =Grivetart
By just looking at this piece you will be drawn into the wonderful world created by this artist.
It's easy to read how the kid in this piece must feel, as the viewer probably feels the same.
"V I A" by ~DemosthenesVoice
Very Innovative Art by emosthenesVoice here. The combination of real elements with the fictional/fantasy aspects is awesome. Make sure to check out his very vibrant gallery!
"Sin" by *yigitkoroglu
This piece of art embodies great vision and excellent excecution. The perfect harmony between fantasy and science fiction is what makes this work so special.
Make sure to visit the rest of the artist's gallery as well!
"Do Robots Dream"? by `Fredy3D
Because if they do, I'd like to dream their dream with them.
"Beautiful Damnation" by ~dylanxedge shows a real nice classical composition with a very surprising central element.
Future "Transportation" might be a problem in big cities. Just imagine the sight of a large carrier passing by your penthouse window. Wouldn't it be amazing? ~frankhong did a very great job on this image and the rest of his awesome gallery looks alike.
