Hi guys here`s my DWIV entry for the GGS-team.
Since the Norms were pushed back entirely to their cities, they reinitiated an old nature magic. It enables them to eliminate their foes already far in the heartland. Since this magic demands the sacrifice of a newborn human being, it was forbidden ages ago and disappeared into oblivion. Only the great despair that came with the beginning of the Fourth Dominance War gave reason to revive the disputed magic.
"Cyclamen" Race: Norm Class: Clericon Right after birth, the newborn child must be poisoned with a cyclamen and left in a magical stone circle on a hill in the heartland. After some months, nature takes posession of the child and grants him tremendous power – the power of nature and life. Part animal, part human, part plant, the cyclamen grows out of the soil. A single glance is enough to transform the life energy of the attacker into nature’s energy.
I hope you enjoy ....

Here`s my Newborn aka ..bring something to life-challenge entry..
"The marvelous creations of Vcitor Bodin"
Really good stuff. That cyclamen piece is really tripping.
I agree with Mr M, you truely deserve more feedback.
These are excellent, the lighting and mood are done perfectly.
Yeah, your right. Post more, i command you .
wow that is awesome man !
Here is some older stuff.. I posted them from a whilw in this forum in seperate threads. I think it`s a better idea to put them all in a same thread. I hope that`s ok...
1. "The control of nature"
2. "Project 2017"
Project 2017 was an urban planning program concerned with the redevelopment of asian slum districts.
An enormous urban growth lead to increasing ground prices around the megacities. The government regarded the slums sprawling in those areas with increasing resentment. It intitatet Project 2017. In order to gain space, the slum dwellings were piled up one ontop another. Fearing dropping values of the new won construction spaces, the slums were surrounded by a façade of residential buildings. The "conclaves" had come into being.
Outside, the construction zones were littered with skyscrapers, expensive apartment estates and shopping malls. By and by, also the conclaves were overbuilt. The former slums disappeared into oblivion.
Also when the world economy collapsed more than one hundred years later, nobody could remember the run-down and underdeveloped parts of the megacity. Nor their obscure economic system, which has symbiotically kept alive the city and, interconnected with which, the whole world.
But the slum dwellers have survived. Buried deep beneath the urban undergrowth, they have found new means of existence. Today, they almost live like they did a century ago. Only have the neon lights over their heads become their heaven, the ventilators their suns, solely shedding light onto this long forgotten civilisation.
Among others, i was inspired by the word "conclave" in Neal Sephensons book " Diamond Age"
3." The forgotten lecagy of Gustav Eiffel"
I will posting here more often, in a week or two I have finally some time for personal stuff!
So, cya CAs

Oh I' ve seen this underground city before and it' s as amazing as the first time I reaaly like your images . The cyclamen character is great and remind me of mononoke Hime forest god
Wow! Incredible work. Your knowledge of colour is superb to say the least.
I'd really love to use one of your paintings as a desktop wallpaper in our office. Permission to do that?
grüezi michael, wie häsch?
das sind echt hammer bilder, farbe, style, alles passt wie fuscht ufs aug.
müend mal wieder skype, adiö!
The cyclamen is creepy as hell. Id put him in a pot and mount him up on a tower and beam that magic out like a laser.
I thought The Diamond Age was good too. I like imagining the diamond-fibre mechanical horse that folds down into a light carry case.
killer stuff man, you got my vote for the newborn competition. (unless there's something i haven't seen yet that blows YOU away. haha)
anyway, i love your work. everything on your website is so unique... your ideas are so surreal... beautiful... very inspirational.
your work takes me to another world.
thanks man! appreciate it!
.. thanks means a lot to me!
here the Chow#176 enty.
This week we're taking a leaf from Venice and 17th/18th century europe, and holding a masquerade ball!
You are all invited, but remember, you must come in costume, complete with mask!
The rules this week are simple. This is a self-portrait round, where you will be portraying yourself in costume for the event. Masks are a requirement, but that does not mean you have to wear them - you can be holding them, have them off to the side if you want to show the face as well, etc."
You really did a good job! Fantastic attention to detail and colour handling.
