Day-break by priteeboy Day-break by priteeboy
This is what happens when God cheaps out on building materials :lol: build the heavens and the damn thing breaks the day the warranty expires :dohtwo: gives an all new meaning to the term Daybreak ;)

Alternatively going to be called the less-creative "The sky has fallen" - this was my single entrant into the Luminarium's recent Exhibit titled "Reverie" - which means "Daydreaming" and on my freqent daydreaming ventures, I sometimes have wondered what it would be like if the sky was a physical, tangible object - I'm sure we all beleived that or similar as kids at some stage :O guess the closest thing I've seen represented well in the media might be The Truman show - but that wasn't on my mind when creating this.

See this and various other good-quality artworks on the Luminariums recent Exhibit Here :omg: please remember all that art is copyrighted by their respective artists!

Technical details time! - Once again, as the movie producers often say - "Vue saved me an incredible amount of time when creating this!" Of course, that's not to say it was created in an afternoon, I still had to model the buildings in Cinema 4D, about half the trees used are custom ones and as usual - various things got a Photoshop makeover to make it just look nicer overall, however this is still more 3D than 2D, so the category is correct ;)

All my artwork remains the copyrighted propery of me, please do not use my art in your own projects or websites unless you get pemrission from me

Heh, this reminds me how, when I was a kid, I thought that if I climbed on a higher block I could touch the sky with my hand. :D And later how chilly I felt when I saw how thin the layer of air was between us and the void space beyond.

I had a similar experiment when I was little, just heading down rather than up. I saw a diagram of the Earth's inner layers and the crust seemed incredibly thin, so I thought it was only a few feet thik before hitting the lava layers - the mantle, one day my parents where digging a hole in the backyard and the hole was only a foot deep and I saw a bright orange layer - in excitement I thought they reached the mantle...It was just orange clay soil in the ground :rofl:

This piece is really good! But for one thing, I need to ask this.

Is that huge chunk of sky already plopped onto the ground, or is it still in the midst of crashing to the ground?

Because it sorta looks like it's being supported by the buildings, or was that the intention from the start?

Other that that, this is really something to shout about! =D

It's has already fallen, though only recently, as bits are still crubling away at the sides. Not sure if the buildings could hold it up, but I imaged the sky being lightweight...perhaps as if it was styrofoam :airborne:

Thanks for faving :)

Most people I've seen who tried to do this have made it seem stale and all together uninteresting. You made it seem so natural like this could actually happen in nature. Brilliant 9.9/10 (I never give perfect scores so 9 might as well be 10 so you got a 10.9 :D. At least for what my citicism is worth. Haha.

:iconpriteeboy:
priteeboy Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Lol, that sounds so much like me in the scoring department :lol: giving 10's only inflates big ego's anyway ;p

Occasionally I've seen similar artworks, though the last was so long ago I barely remember what it looke dlike. I was hoping to give mine a lively and almost childish like ambience to it :airborne:

I just never give 10 because of my art teacher. I sort of adopted his style of grading even though it only was for a semester. He always gave A's but never 100 because he said there's no such thing as the perfect picture. I agreed with it so I took it to heart. :D

Something tells me it could have been more dramatic with a dark, scary mood too - but there's plenty of sci-fi and fantasy artists that goe down that path already - I like my bright, almost humerous interpretations of such things more :XD: glad you like it too! :handshake:
