Dying Earth by daekazu Dying Earth by daekazu
Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconteanah:, :iconvinegar: and :iconmaudt:!

For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.

This week's topic is ~maudt's idea: Dying Earth. Exploring the motifs of death, decay and the ecological disaster that is the state of our planet.


My first idea.
Final effect is a bit different. Firstly I wanted kill the Earth by pollution. But... I wanted also some action, so... :fuzzydemon:

SAI + a bit of PS CS + Volito2.
+ references!

This is so amazing! :) It's beautiful. :tears: There's so much emotion in her eyes. I love the idea, and the way you've made it look like the earth is a dress, like it's alive and afraid. :love:

The irony here is that humanity would try to protect Earth whit its most deadliest bombs ever created in history. It's kinda amusing actually to think that Nuclear power would became the possible savior of our race, home and very existence of all living things on this planet.
