    Oh nice topic! Just a question - what is 2543CE? Does that just mean it's set deep in future on mars?

    Cheers , hope there is good amount of entries like the last round.

    2543 year ...CE stands for "Common Era" Im not sure why that date is significant if it is

    Regarding 2543CE, I wanted "far" future date to allow significant technological and religious development.
    Consider, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.", a quote from Arthur C. Clarke.
    Maybe, the Buddhist found a monolith on Mars? Or would a first century Christian recognize modern Christianity.
    Think about the symbols, ideas, metaphors and how they may evolve in a different context.

    My last entry was kinda Marcy, I'm trying to learn more about Mars to get fresh idea for this one.

    I watched the launch of the NASA shuttle video yesterday and it totally flipped my perception of spaceship design. I recommend searching for something like that.

    Attachment 324989

    i spent a year in japan for grad school. in my free time, i studied woodcarving under a traditional woodcarver who carved buddhist statues and Noh masks. this brings back all kinds of memories for me. the bronze daibutsu in kamakura, the head of kannon-sama on the side of the mountain, huge 3-story tall wooden Nio statues, and another daibutsu in Nara at Todaiji.

    my first post

    hello all
    this is my first post ever in a forum...so well here it goes. I dont think it ll change much till the deadline, i d like to spend a little time on the IDW to hehe.

    By 2500 science as merged its knowledge with those of religions to discover that religious symbolism was in fact blueprints for advancement of the human race. One of the things this new comprehension brought to light was that by use of mathematical geometry on a large scale and mass meditation could have tremendous effect on environement.
    There began the quest to meditational teraforming on Mars. The meditation temple channels the energy, transforming it into a self contained atmosphere super biosphere style.
    The Khor Wa temple is one of many on mars, together in a year or so the entire planet will be ready to support life.
    We thank the hundreds who volonteered to meditate for this grand adventure.

    Good day to you
    when people stop critiquing its because they stopped caring

    Verrrrry sweet stuff folks!
    Welcome maks44, nice entry! I think you should crop the lower area or move the content of the pic down, the upper half is way more interesting, the lower half seems to empty.
    And ccsears, apart from the cool wip, i envy you so damn much for your japan-year.....aaargh!!

    I think i´ll participate here too, let´s what i can pull off the next days...

    EOW 82 A Buddhist Temple, 2543CE, Mars

    ccsears - I always forget about Japan's relation to Buddhism, thanks for the reminder. The sketch looks great.

    maks444 - welcome, I'm relatively new as well. Nice interpretation, the cropping of the top gives me a strange vibe.

    fog - good for you, the Mars of 2543CE may be a sister to Earth. I'm reminded of the Buddhist temple in the movie, Serenity.

    Lucky Munky - very nice, looking forward to the final.

    shardana - I think the composition would be better with the top of the dome visible. When I look at yours, I wonder as to why monks would build a traditional structure when they would have to enclose it within a dome. Was there a time when the dome was not needed? Was Mars terra-formed? did it fail? <- this is the approach I decided on.


    I just realized much mine reminds me of Amateria.

    Red face

    This is my first post , its the first sketch. I still have to ink it and paint it digitally but the concept wont be modified.
    Its a buddhist temple at Cape Verde - Mars. I thought of the location because of a picture taken by a Nasa Rover i once saw.
    I hope you like it

    EOW 82 Entry--ccsears

    This is my final entry. i'm not going to have time to tweak all the details that i want. some of the textures (like the sand) aren't showing up because i was working at triple this resolution.

    anyway, no excuses.

    the idea is simple, a levitating roof over a daibutsu. i felt that the only way to balance a red landscape at this saturation was to balance it with a complementary blue-green. creates a nice focus. if i had thought of a better camera angle, i probably could have included a temple gate, some calligraphy carved in stone, etc.
