New climate-weapon was created. In little bay NAVY and scientist started experiment to control weather. But something goes wrong...
(Vue, 3ds max, Photoshop)
Thanks for watching!
P.S. there is a helicopter in the left bottom corner! And there is a cruiser in the right part of whirlpool. And after a few seconds he'll fall into the hole, hell yeah!

Water manipulation is fascinating, because it's hard to make it look real. This looks very real. Even more impressive is the creation of a maelstrom combined with a waterspout, which intensifies the effect. The inclusion of lightning bolts and flying debris around the waterspout is a great final touch.

The larger the cataclysm, the greater its visual impact. The common practice used here is the presence of large ships as a comparison of size. This has further increased the image's impact, especially with what appears to be a battleship about to be drawn into the maelstrom.

(One question. Is that an Iowa class battleship heading into the maelstrom? If so, it looks somewhat small compared to the carrier nearby, which I presume is a Nimitz class. If not, don't worry about this. It is a general point to remember that when representing actual things, like ships, to have the dimensions correct, otherwise the suspension of disbelief, (that the image can somehow be real) is spoiled).

The image's detail is fantastic. The ships have clear, well defined outlines, down to the aircraft lined up on the carrier's deck. The forest in the background is very well defined, (too many background forests I've seen look like collections of blotchy shapes). The individual trees in the foreground are well-detailed, as is the scientific installation. The stormy sky is a great overall finish, consistent with the mood of an impending catastrophe. I particularly liked the image of the flock of birds appearing to fly towards the calmer east, (sensible creatures leaving as quickly as possible the scene of man's stupidity).

Overall, a very impressive image.

Simply amazing!
I'm not an expert, but i think there is some miss in the devastation. You can make those ships to lead the eye more. It is a cataclysm after all, so why all of them are going into the whirlpool? Maybe make them run away! Except maybe one ship(some madman scientist) which does go to investigate this... Cataclysm!
I would try at least though, to make that ship that IS being sucked into the Whirlpool facing the other direction (trying to run away) like it was caught off-guard and change the angle to like this )/ whirlpool -> ")" ship ->"/" sorry, hope you understand ... basically to create suspension like its going to get sucked in...?! or maybe the ship will escape?! TAM-TAM-TAM!!! You can make the lower left corner and instead of the palm trees - make some houses, maybe try to show some panic?
Also i would increase a bit more the fog on the furthest places of the coast (upper left corner) cause their not your main point and don't really matter much like that important AMAZING water tornado!!!

Bottom line: Great work, I really do like the water and the tornado. great ships and the detail of everything ! Remember, you can Always improve ! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" title="=) (Smile)"/>

I located the image I used offsite here...…

I did not steal anything here nor would I. 

Now that I am aware of the actual creator of the artwork, I have given credit. 

Again, I never claimed at any point the image was my own.

hi. Both of this versions of picture are mine. No problem with credits - i know it's hard sometime to locate author of art. And even worse some one steals art, makes they own watermark, then some one else steals already stolen and then you cant deside who's real creator. Good luck!

At first, before zooming-in, I thought it was a landscape of turbulence. Then, the vortex sweeping up all that was near  —   scary! What imagination,what patience!!!

I absolutely love this art work. It reminds me of a card from magic the gathering "Cyclonic Rift"

In my comparison, I noticed that someone already made a proxy artwork card with your artwork. 

It states "Not for Sale" on the bottom, but they should have given you credit as the artist. "

I'd love to have a playmat of this made. 

Amazing Work.
