Somewhere in space, there was a very advanced race called "Travellers" that even reached the space.
In their system was only one planet and it had one moon. But the exploration of space brought also some negative things. They found even more advanced race than they are. They races made an nonaggression pact but our second race has turned traitor and almost defeated Traveller race on planet.
But what they didn't know about was the fact that Travellers also colonised their moon and then developed the moon shield ,superweapon and interstellar drive drawing energy from the core.
Then they rached homeworld of the traitor race and now they are using their superweapon to take vengeance on them.

The rest can you see on the image ;)

First - I'm glad you removed that terrible 3D ship.
It's obvious this is probably the best piece you've done so far. Although - nothing is perfect. I'll get back to it later, first - the highlights.
This piece has that beautiful classic SA feeling (except it's not hand made). At first glance I wouldn't even recognize all the other 3D aspects. Original sci-fi idea only supports this classical mood when all the Space Art artists were not influenced by science and their imagination had no boundaries.
Color mood is laso one of the highlights - no big contrast, but calm, soft colors that don't distract from details.
There are just 2 things that concern me a bit - the first one you already know - it's that composition - not really wrong, but a bit messed up. Too much objects together on small space. Space needs to breathe..'s vast and silent - your is just.. ..crowded. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" title=":D (Big Grin)" />
The other problem is with the overal "plastic" feel when I look a bit closer. Not a really big deal, but I must mention it. Probably caused by that 3D machinery.
Anyway - a good piece in right time. That's the way to go!

It's also the opinion. I was also very surprised I won. Judges probably liked an idea or dunno. I know of the messed perspective etc. but I did this work in my 16 :D

An amazing andcreative work! BRAVO!

It's a classic story of hubris. It's probably more likely that the two species evolved from a similar original lifeform to account for their relative closeness of advancement. Really great work!
Just keep on traveling...

Probably know what do you think - the asteroid by the text and its reflection. You're right looks like heart but it wasn't planned and i noticed that once when you told it to me ;) (on my own art :D). Thank you for comment
