It looks amazing! Fanart of Childhood's End is very rare...

Circa 1953. Take that, both V and ID4. Darned copycats.

Arthur Clarke fanart is not something one expects to see here, and finding this was a real treat. :D Beautiful rendering of the scene!

(While I really like the expanded, novel version, I like the original short story even more because there was more punch to the ending - ie. where Stormgren catches a fleeting glimpse of Karellen - ... if that makes any sense).

Cool! I like your style, and it's very well applied to this novel. Nice work.

Wow... thats great! And I would have to agree that Independence Day did indeed borrow from Childhood's End.

I've never read that book but I'll be sure to look into it. This is a great picture, and makes me very interested in it.

I love Arthur C. Clarke!! I think he is working with SETI@home project now :D. This is a great work :nod:.

Seeing as the book came out some 20 plus years prior to the release of Independence Day, I think its safe to think that one borrowed from the other.
Glad you like it :D
