Earth 2210 by the-danzor Earth 2210 by the-danzor
Earth 2210

The year is 2210 on the planet earth; global warming which appeared to the planets inhabitants as something small and nothing to worry about, has taken a turn for the worse. Great clouds spanning thousands of miles are now bringing forward the next ice age. Countries, Races, Genders and Age are thrown out the window, all that matters are the people within your town or city community, coming together to collect resources and to survive anyway possible.

What used to be law and order has now turned into whoever has the needed resources of the communities is now in charge, although some communities have still some form of law and order, others are not so fortunate, the human race must now overcome their next great challenge, but I wonder how we will turn out once the ice has gone.

About The Scene

A quick space scene between jobs, i wished to relax and go for something closer to home this time.

I found this scene today and liked it enough to write a short critique. Though the concept and composition isn't really original, it's executed well enough to stand out among other similar works.

What really stand out is the quality of the planet itself. The texture of the planet has a very high level of detail and variation, and you can surely believe this to be our home planet. The actual planet texture is accentuated by a very detailed, nicely modelled, and well shadowed cloud layer with both smooth and crisp edges. The haze in-between the clouds really lift the background story of an accelerated global warming.

Another great aspect of this picture is the atmospheric glow, it has some nice variations to it that makes it almost look like auroras at pools - a suggestion would be to enhance that effect even further.

The star scape looks nice too, perhaps not very exciting, rather eerie and calm. On the other hand our night sky here on earth is rather relaxing, so guess it suits the theme just fine. Also makes it good as a wallpaper, since large parts of the image is rather void of distraction.

One thing I would say is rather distracting is the title of the piece as it's placed now. I often prefer pieces without titles on the canvas, or where the titles are written on the border, or where they're well blended in with the piece itself. In this case it sits right where your icons would be were you to use it as a wallpaper. This is a very minor issue though.

All in all a beautiful and relaxing piece of work that'd sit nicely on anyone's desktop.

Ill fucking rise and be the new leader and send out armies of the strongest men to slaughter nearby neighborhoods and rape them of their necessities and resources. Then throw them out to our pack of dogs for food.

People will fear me and my power till the ice age passes and a new time dawns upon the race of the human beings.


I like my story >D

I'm probably wrong but Global warming? shouldn't that be global cooling if your supposed result is an ice age?

Awesome picture, shame about the idea behind it lol.

No, i took the theory of a recent article i read about climate change and the approaching next ice age, decieded to slam them into one. the fictional story behind it, is mostly a theory and probably a wrong one but its a widly debated topic and thus making it an intresting topic for a piece.

Look up global warming, its effects and theorys and you will see for yourself.

I was purely commenting on your use of the words "global" warming in context of an ice age.

Rubbish the media are almost entirely pro global warming.

The idea behind the peice was to show mans battle with nature, to much to decline any major technology upgrades in the past 200 years.

Erm, yeah?
It does make sense.
Have you heard of our planet's natural cycle?
The Ice Ages is Earth's 'normal' weather.
The heat we're experiencing now is building towards the Ice Age.

It makes perfect sense.

its apparent you havent read as nuch as I have on this. this cooling trend started in the late 60's thge global warming scam was revealed asd a hoax , at least as far as I am concerned, and the 30k scientists that filed suit against al gore agree.

I didn't say anything about Global Warming, and whether it was a scam or not. For Global Warming, I couldn't care less. It's a natural thing that happens in the Earth's cycle. Sure with carbon emissions we're helping the Earth get hotter, but eventually we'll fall back into an Ice Age.

It's apparent you haven't looked at research that dates before the 60s.
