A collaboration with *fmacmanus For Depthcore: Obsolete

At the mercy of their own creation, the machines, the only way out of this misery for humanity is a wormhole into a parallel and hopefully peaceful universe.


This piece will be part of an exhibition which will take place on July 19 in NYC. You can get more info about the exhibition here: [link]

excellent work bro! only thing is i looked at the step by step process and i was really loving the levitating rocks in the foreground but the final kinda made the rocks hidden and not very noticeable...that made me sad :tears:

I can see the final version is a little bit too dark so the rocks go unnoticed.. hmm.. adjust your screen! :P

The sky looks really nice - as do all the elements in the piece on its own. Can't help but noticing a difference of style in the piece though. The "machine structure" looks somewhat detached from the sky and the foreground. Might be due to the colaboratary (is that even a word?) difficulties in a work like this... It's a small thing that disturbs me from fully enjoying what else is a beautiful piece. That said, it's still a terrific work of art :)

it's a real challenge to combine 3D elements with photography, so that's most likely the reason why it feels off. :/ I am not a huge fan of my postwork here anyway, but I think it might have helped if I blurred and textured the model slightly. Maybe I'll do that sometime in the future. Thanks for the comment ;)
