August 2009 - Daily Deviations
"the exchange of flowers-color by *begemott"
"London 2063 after midnight" by =Grivetart
It looks so mysterious, cold and spooky because of the missing colors. Imagine a large city without any lights at night. What ever is going on there: it's wrong and dangerous. Do you notice the little banners?
"Warm" by ~oddocean
There is so much emotion in this picture. Are robots allowed to have such feelings? A really well executed image here. You should keep an eye on this artist!!!
"Last day" by ~Chiaotzu
The Suggester said: An interesting piece enriched with a great sense of history and therefore telling a great story in itself for the viewer to interpet. ~Chiaotzu's Last day presents a classically inspiring piece of science fiction art!
Not only "Extreme Condition" but also extreme hard work. And it paid off. The quality of this painting is simply awesome as well as the details are. That's one small step for a watcher, one giant leap for *AdamBurn!!
"First Live Birth" by ~CaraKhan
You can almost hear the bubbling scream!
"Lucid" by ~Burning-Liquid
A clear and well executed picture. Make sure to check out the gallery of this old stager!
"Star Wars portraits:The Droids" by *vividfury
The suggester said:
Everything in this deviant's gallery is absolutely amazing, and it was hard to pick just one work. The best thing about this painting is how realistic the metal looks. Its texture is nice and smooth, plus the reflections are perfect. That and the attention to all the detail is incredible. Both R2D2 and C3P0 look liked they just walked out of the movie.
Be sure to check out the rest of his gallery!
"victim of time" by ~xeNusion
"The Oath" by *yigitkoroglu
May the bear protect him. Words cannot describe the wow-factor of this image.
"Ancient Enemies" by ~tycarey
From beast to beauty and back. I really love the details shown here.
"Briar Patch" by =GlennClovis
Be amazed by the epic sense of scale of this amazing scene & be sure to look at the rest of =tsarye's gallery as well!
"Happy 2109" by *xavor85 is a brilliant image by an amazing artist!
(Early) happy year 2109 everyone!
"Moment of Tranquility" by *Nuukeer
The suggester said:
A beautiful aura of tranquility is indeed felt with a "Moment of Tranquility" by *Nuukeer, showing off a great sense of atmosphere and light, with some stunning details to much. Minimalism of scenery with great depth to delve into.
"Bon Voyage" is a very well detailed rendering by ~ChristianBeyer. Full view is a must!
"Star Wars Revenge of the Sith" by ~DavidRabbitte
An awesome piece of traditional art and a beautiful homage to Star wars. If you are a fan of the series, you should definitely visit the artists gallery!
"rattus fugit" by ~neilakoga
Very innovative sci-fic art and a simply awesome/funny image. I bet you have never seen such a time machine before!
"Fission vortex" by ~Wetbanana
You can almost feel the danger coming from that vortex - Get the hell out of there brave pilot!
Make sure to check out the rest of this talented deviant's gallery full of Terragen 2 masterpieces.
"Distant worlds" by ~Den3221
It's up to you what you want to see here. But what's visible to everybody are the awesome colors and the very nice light. Beautiful traditional art!!!
"Oil shop" by ~Andead
Ahh, I still remember when I used to be a small robot and go to the next oil shop and say: "One can of oil, please!"
"fantasy cover" by *Hamsterfly
When Science Fiction and Fantasy collide, no one knows what will happen next. But one thing is for sure: It will be epic.
Be amazed by this piece of art and make sure to visit the rest of this artist's gallery, too!
A splendid sci-fi piece exhibiting a strong sense of thematic polarity, conceptual depth and compositional interest (as well as beautiful scenery). "Starchasers" by ~Kamikaye displays the elements of a classic scene in its overall aesthetic, alluring colours and epic layout.
"Phobos and Deimos" by ~JimHatama
The two names imply massive power and tremendous might which are conveyed very well in this piece of art, although it has a very calming feeling to it.
Wouldn't that be a nice place to live at?
