Base '24' - Lava Empire by Grimdar Base '24' - Lava Empire by Grimdar
"An old, wise man once told me: 'What happens when a planet has completely used every single resource available?' There is a civilization out there which uses lava as a source of life and energy, allowing it to flow as blood flows through the body. This energy has twisted the beings to unnatural forms, slowly mutating their bodies. Horns have started growing out of their heads and wicked, black tails grow from the rear. These creatures, young man, used to be called demons."

Matte Painting
Photoshop CS 2 - 4680x1950 pixels original

And I thought I was the only one who thought that lava could be used as a potential energy source. Good concept and a really nice picture to match.

Your pictures always make me wonder what you were thinking about when you dreamt it up Grimdar. This one especially. Where is it? Why lava? Are there 23+ other bases?

Now thats a good question. Most of the time, I leave the story open to make the viewer ponder. The more unique it is.. the more the viewer gazes into the image to figure out the background. In this case, it's a civilization in a galaxy similar to the one in my other Matte painting called "Mountain Base".. or it's true name "Base 23". I'm basically creating a series of 3 paintings of 3 different bases across this galaxy to show the viewer the diversity, technology and climate of the planets in this galaxy. Hope that made sense :) I've got one more base to go to finish the series
