Heatwave by ErikShoemaker Heatwave by ErikShoemaker
Outline of the concept: The neighboring planet is 'erupting' (shown by the yellow lava pools) and is sending intense heat towards the futuristic city plane. The dark sphere in between is a wormhole that connects with a distant region in outer space as a way to escape. Wormholes are often used in scifi scenarios as a means to travel large distances in space and time, which implies they are opened up by some advanced civilization at will - and so is this one.

This artwork was made for the week 4 challenge "Aerials" at mattepaint.com. The task was to create an artwork from the pack of stock photos provided by the site for the purpose of the challenge. The Aerials-pack included a number of sky photos and city-skylines that I used to complete this scene. Additional photos I used were purchased from photobash.org. Other stuff was painted, which is a bit more than in my usual works. I also tested a different 'finishing' this time. Hope you like it!

Thank you! This is the highest I have at the moment and 2k is about the most I would be comfortable with to share freely online. :) What size would you want?

I feel you, I'd be the same if I was sharing my work online. It's just that I really like this one !

About the size... well, that's the downside of having a 32" 4k screen : everything looks small under 3840x2160... ^^; It makes browsing Deviant Art pretty frustrating at times (and I'm not talking about your picture, the size is fine, by today's standards).

haha, thanks so much! Glad you like it!
I already have a few DDs, so it probably has to be really mindblowing to be considered at all - but that's fair. :-D
And I did win as well! Admittedly I had only 5 or so contenders, but I was still very happy about it. :lol:

Hi there! Really impressed with this photo, and I was wondering if I could use this as a cover image for one of my songs. I am an aspiring electronic musician, with channels on both the Youtube and Soundcloud platforms. You can access my channels via the links in my bio, or just search the name 'Ronin' on YouTube or Soundcloud. In the song description, I will include links to both your profile here on DeviantArt and to this particular photo. Again, great picture, and thank you for your patience.

Sorry for the late reply, I overlooked this comment for some reason. Usually I'm fine with Youtube as long as credit is given. Thanks for the compliment and good luck with your channel.
