Monolith by Hideyoshi Monolith by Hideyoshi
Aaah, the weather's too damn hot!! Can't work.

E.O.W - Monolith
PS 7, 2- 2.5 hours, no ref.
did this as a speedpainting demo for a friend.
-----
In 2320 N5S viruses will have taken over mankind and affect carriers of netsphere genes. Victims, called 'drones' will acquire zombie-like behavior and will be drawn to an enormous tower, the Monolith which sends out special microwaves for a yet unknown reason.
An agent, dispached from Toha Heavy Industries will be in position to clear things up...

Citadels crumble now,
Around you they fall,
Beneath the shadow lurks civilization,
Forgotten and old,
But there in the distance,
The monolith stands,
Beneath it many have died,
And for it many did fall


To the drones that slave away,
They live to serve and die the same,
A lie that breeds their truth,
Will forever curse them all

Nice work man! When look at the artwork from the manga, I noticed the "drones" kinda look like Necromorphs from Dead Space.

You should have made the charachter a bit... taller in his silhouette, if you see what i mean, however killy wielding a saber could have been fun though XD
Excellent work, well done!

One popular theory is that Biomega is pre-Noise. (And there for pre-BLAME)

So the Netsphere itself wouldn't yet exist.

As I see it, the Netsphere is a technology that uses electronic information to interface and control matter itself. Much like a digital spirit world, except made completely finite.

I really, really like the use of warm blue here. I don't care about anything else, it's the blue that hooks me and reels me in. That's something that I admire in most of your pieces, your use of primaries and analogous colour compliments. It creates energy, especially in these futuristic scenes.
