Post-Ecopoiesis by KaiSaunders Post-Ecopoiesis by KaiSaunders
Ecopoiesis: The establishment of an artificially assembled, self-sustaining ecosystem on a previously lifeless planet.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Done for the Luminarium's 18th exhibit, Gaia, which can be seen here: [link]

Really enjoyed working on this one, and had a lot of very useful help and advice from the guys at the Luminarium, hope you enjoy!

Awesome, love those colors. And I have to ask. Are those guys like actual people exploring that planet? Cause on the first sight I thought those were like giants walking through those plains. Correct me if I'm wrong. :P

Ha, I see. My second guess was right then. :P
Maybe it are those rocks in the foreground with this foggy surface on those rocks where they're standing on.. it kind of creates deph and gives this me that feel, for me it seems like they would be standing on a rock further away.

Hope I wrote that halfways understandable!

You dont have to, leaves room to interpret it for people themselves, right? :D For me those are like cyber giants now.
Keep up the great work! :)

These green terraces are beautifully crafted. And I appreciate your reference to Ecopoiesis. You get that concept from the Mars trilogy, don't you ?
Maybe you'll be interested in having a look at my Mars blog : [link]

I found your work on The Luminarium. I've just joined the collective. Haven't participated yet.

This one is really interesting. Here we have these obviously futuristic figures still being able to enjoy a raw landscape as it is :) The "shiny" look is unusual too, almost like the stones are polished, or maybe it just finished raining :D
