The Awakening by aksu The Awakening by aksu
My latest personal piece, i finally can call finished the whole flying rocks idea :)

It was always meant to go in this direction but I never had the time I needed to invest into detailing it. So please check out the full version so you can see everything.

I also made up some kind of story behind this so I hope you will have some fun discovering what that is.


On the technical side, I started with a Vue render and then added all the details using digital matte painting techniques. Some of the elements are fully painted, including the ships.

I hope you enjoy it!

Various ideas are in my head when I see this image: Strange buildings of a alien civilization, spacecrafts or even more strange. A very homoungus life form awakening of a dream of millions of years.

It's hard to take it all in. The size, the magnitude, all of it is so overwhelming O.o
I can say that I love that this painting is at an angle, it just adds to how alien and different this is to us
