Talk about visual impact and think about space architecture, and Monument by ~JoeJesus could possibly be an artwork which brings imagination into life. 1st runner up in the Science Fiction Wallpaper contest

So, since there were some changes in the rules of the wallpaper sci-fi contest ( [link] ), taenaron ( :icontaenaron: ) allowed us to eventually change our submissions and since my first piece called Aries ( [link] ) wasn't exactly a sci-fi (just a plain spacescape) I decided to use this opportunity to swap that piece for this one, called Monument. Yeah, it's quite 'overWOWed', but hey - you like it that way anyway :D .

In the wall-pack you'll find:
1024x768
1280x960
1440x900
1600x1000
1600x1200
1680x1050
1920x1200

Technical info:
PS CS2, 3DSMAX, Terragen, Mont Blanc panorama stock from [link] (It was manipulated into pieces - you probably won't recognize a thing.)

Space, planets, clouds and landscape done entirely in PS CS2.
10% of the ship and structures were made in 3D SMAX, then heavily adjusted in CS2.
Approxim. 50 hours of work.


Enjoy...

Wow all these people saying it looks like Halo need to get over it... Rings existed BEFORE Halo. The Halo in Halo looked nothing like this. Not to mention Halo was a complete ring in space, not a half buried one on some planet. Halo WAS the 'planet'.

This is such a beautiful work of are. Makes me wish I had a screen with a proper resolution to use it on.
