Burning Miranda by gizmodus Burning Miranda by gizmodus
Today is National Day in the country of Mirandopolis.
It's an ancient tradition that all the citizens assemble in the Stadium of Mirandopolis to watch how a huge statue of the patron saint 'Miranda' is burnt.
One says that the flames of Miranda give protection to the whole country. That's why all the families take their candles to the stadium and light them with Miranda's fire.

You should develop your detail, as you've got a very fine feel for space and quite an epic flair. Time to go from great to awesome.

I think that the structure you chose to build around the burning statue makes a perfect backdrop. The mausoleum-like building also references the womb. Death and Birth in one.

The colors are beautiful. And the messy detail (if that is something that can be achieved) gives this sloppy but still amazing style that looks finished and perfected. Its great.

I don't know what burning man is? But I think it's something similar to "Sechseläuten", a tradition from Zurich (where I live). They burn a statue of a man and then depending on how long the fire burns they make predictions if the summer will be sunny or not.

I see. Sorry for no reply for a long time. Burning man is pritty much a huge Rave/Party in the desert in america. They build a man out of all wood and then set him on fire. Its like 2 1/2 stories or something. Ive always wanted to go.

Good luck getting close enough to light the candles without getting a heat stroke :)

You always seem to be able to suggest such immense scale with such a loose style. Great stuff.

nice colour effect. this really gives the feeling of a very big stadium because of the little mini-persons.

I like the story, and how the line of people have those little flames with them on one side of the statue.

I hope that stadium has an opening in the roof! that's a huge amount of oxygen being consumed by fire.
