Earth 2049 - The End

:bulletred: All wallpapers also are available at! :bulletred:

Last picture of the series. Not a new concept but I wanted to give it a new try/look. This is also my entry for the latest theluminarium artpack that can be found here

The year was chosen randomly. So if you prefer 2012 instead of 2049... try to ignore my title :D

This happened so many times in the history of the formation of the earth. A video sequence from an episode of The Miracle Planet, suggested that about five time a planatesimal sized 500 kilometers in diameter hit earth along with others at varying size and mass. Each of these objects created a crater a thousand miles wide, and we're followed by a sanitation event. Quite literally the surface of the earth was melted, all of the land rock in the upper crust, the oceans, snow and ice, even the salt on the bottom of the oceans were vaporized and a sea of lava left in its place. The vapor became part of the atmosphere and remained suspended for eons until the earth finally cooled enough for the water vapor to rain out. This took more time as rain drops, some the size of medicine balls heat the still hot surface and instantly turned to steam. Eventually, all the materials that had been vaporized, including the rock, was settled out of the atmosphere and once again the land and waters were divided. Even so, after all of these impacts some life survived in the form of extream thermophiles. These helped to revitalize the life cycle of the earth. Of course, when Theia (the mother of the Moon goddess Selene) a Mars sized hypothetical planet, which is believed to have collided with the Earth, thus creating possibly two moon's, which merged, forming the present moon. To be honest your image is quite thrilling and scary as Hell. However, unless it is much larger than it looks, I doubt it would destroy the earth, creating a sanitizing level event, absolutely. Even in its horrifying, and spectacular presentation it still gives me chills at the thought of it actually happening to my beautiful earth. No doubt the outcome you were looking for? Best of luck in your future endeavors. Cheers.

I would love the power to destroy space and time

Holy mother of Armageddons, spectacular!

I think it would be really cool if we could see some more land through the clouds, as of right now. It looks a bit weird with all those clouds so thick together.

And I think you could've detailed the nearest fireballs that are falling down, with fragments of flames and debris coming from them, and not just the tiny particles, but something bigger.
The fireballs that are in the far back, could've been blurred a tiny bit too, as they look to sharp.

And some sweet touches with the spaceman helmet and the rocket coming down, they really add a sense of life in this scene, and they add a lot to the scene.
This picture really got the "Wow" factor to it, great work and quite epic.

Thanks a lot for your critique :) To be honest, I never thought about showing more land besides the hole. Good point!

We have all seen Armageddon, surely. But in that one, the Earth came out on top. Im sure that if we didn't, The End would have happened. While the apocalyptic vision is by no means original, Im pretty sure that the way we might view such an event taking place is always changing and this is the top of the pile.

The impact, visually and quite literally, is extraordinary. The Asteroid is huge and the explosion it makes is done in great detail. It bursts the Earths crust as if it were a balloon, the sky recoils. Very striking. The execution is, as per usual, wonderful, with all the interesting details that give it realism, like the shuttle and space helmet.

The only thing I question would be the conical shape. It makes the asteroid seem like it was aimed there, like a bullet from a large cosmic gun. On the other hand, it's more frightening to think that, with that kind of impact, the asteroid could drill the Earth into two!

This is possibly the closest anyone can get to an apocalypse without getting killed, and even then the detail is deadly! Wonderful work, ^taenaron, can't wait for more!

Looking at the "asteroid", I kind of wonder if it isn't really too large for that title. Is there an astrophysical title for an asteroid as large as many planetary moons?. At any rate, it would sure destroy life as we know it, but something would survive. (It always does!)
TobiasRoetsch's avatar
Hehe thank you :) After some weeks now I also think that it would have been cool to improve the shape. On the other hand: an asteroid of this size is spherical or conical (or at least not hard edges ;) )

An utterly fantastic piece. The contrast between the blue glow of the earth and the fiery red of the meteor (? - let's call it that regardless) is really astounding. The detail that ^taenaron has gone into is truly inspiring.

All the tiny details, such as the little spaceship to the left make this piece easy to stare at and enjoy. The clarity is another factor that makes it so beautiful. Although the concept isn't exceptionally unique, ^taenaron has given it a new look in his wonderful style.

Overall, a fantastic way to end the series. I cannot wait to see more from this artist!

The planet surface and atmosphere (in the 'distance&#039<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" /> really looks good. the fissures that are forcing out (to direct left and upper right) are formed really well, showing a good thought process behind it's creation. The impact itself is spectacular as is the 'bowl' forming around it from the the pressure wave.

However, some of the area around the asteroid doesn't quite look right.

The helmet is an interesting touch, though almost out of place, maybe if it was scaled smaller it would do better.

Over all, it's an excellent piece, and does a great job to complete the series.

Thanks for your critique. The helmet was a huge discussion at Luminarium Artgroup. Some said: larger! Some said: smaller!

I'm satisfied with its size now ;)

I did a helmet to Fit DAZ|Studios M3 and had similar issues with getting size right.

echt verdammt gut, schöne Idee... ABER, der große asterioid hat find ich zu wenig details im gegensatz zu den wolken hinten...
Lichtstimmung und farben sind echt gut <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" title=":-) (Smile)" /> Denoch hätte mehr details den ganzen mehr realismus gemacht... Könntest natürlich auch weiter hin weniger details machen, dann würde das ganze auch wieder stimmen... 100 Wörter zusammen zu kriegen ist nicht sehr einfach xD Allein weil eigentlich nicht soviel zu kritisieren gibt an dem Bild bis auf die details.. daher denke ich mal hat der Spam noch dazu beigetragen das ich die 100 wörter zusammen bekomme <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" title=":-) (Smile)" />

<img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" title=":-) (Smile)" />

Hab dich doch ganz dolle lieb mein Schatz

So, 105 Wörter zusammen
TobiasRoetsch's avatar
Hehe danke dir ;) Hab ne ganze Weile an dem Bild gearbeitet. Aber ich denke ich werde in Zukunft nochmal die Zeit und Muse finden, das ganze zu überarbeiten. 100% zufrieden bin ich nämlich auch nicht. Und je länger ich drauf guck, desto mehr stört mich :D

ich glaube, das geht jedem so :-P

Also erstmal will ich hoffen dass dein Datum nicht ganz hinhaut. xD

Okay..., also was mir aufjedenfall aufgefallen ist, ist der Helm
links der dem Bild den perfekten Touch gibt, allerdings würde
mir dazu nochn zerstörtes Raumschiff gefallen, welches die
Scenerie die du mit dem Helm darstellen willst abrunden würde.

Dazu bin ich von dem Einschlag total begeistert..., mega detaliert
mit der in dem Einschlag selber zerstörten Landschaft. Kommt gut über.

Der Metoerschleier allerdings mag mir nich so Recht gefallen,
scheint bissle... gezeichnet, passt meiner Meinung nach nicht
so Recht ins Allgemeinbild.

Die Erde könnte bissle mehr Farbe gebrauchen, also kräftiger
und sättiger das ganze um die Athmosphere herum.

Und sonst... wie immer, klasse Work. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)" />

LG; Para

Danke dir für die Kritik :) Das Schiff das zum Helm gehören könnte stürzt hinten neben dem Asteroiden ab ;) Sehr klein, aber das wollten die andern so :)
mike-hege's avatar
da is auch was dran... eyecatcher theorie...
ZuluSplitter's avatar
naja, mag sein :-)
Aber mehr Farbe sollte nicht in den Plani... liegt einfach daran das das "Wichtigste" an dem Bild der Einschlag ist...
