    I picture it as a sacred place in some small world where the Gods first created Man (in a fantasy/mythological setting).

    Cradle of Life

    On the desolate planet of Chor, there exists a grand temple, a place of magnificence and wonder, which draws thousands of pilgrims from all corners of the galaxy to its majestic halls.
    It is said to have been constructed by a long extinct alien race, who left behind an entirely self sufficient building, which produces life giving air and water.

    Scientists have discovered that the building is entirely self powered, although the source of this power is at the present time unknown, but one thing is certain, the longetivity of this power source cannot be underestimated.
    Even 20,000 years after its construction, its power has not diminished, scholars are quick to point out that if ever this power were to vanish, life as we know it would cease to be.

    E.O.W Round 19: Cradle of Life - THE BIG VOTE!
    The world couldn't sustain the fallout in the aftermath of a 4th world war. Mankind, never reaching its technology cap, has all but destroyed itself. Only the small percentage of people who were able to get deep underground survived, and only in the last decade have any of them started to surface again, with hopes to rebuild. In the middle of what was once a warzone, and before that a crouded city, are the remains of a nursery. Sun rays piercing dark clouds shine on a flower that somehow has managed to grow. To those who see it, it represents the beginning of a new world. It has been decided that this is the spot civilization will rebuild from.

    Y3k, new virus has spread after endless nuclear wars between countries, known to disfunction human reproductive system. The virus spread quickly, countries started introducing AIS (Artificial Insemination Scheme), implementing facilities through out the cities.

    Bored with the violent creations of the other Gods, Volcanos, tempests, mountains leaping from the earth, Gaia sought solitude and a quiet Valley to create something a little more intricate, smaller but more complicated.....

    wow we didnt end up with many entries this time. and I thought it was such a cool topic.

    Lohan, interesting style you have. I like the colors, I think if you strengthened your linework, the piece would be a lot better. Yup, same colors and same scene, tighter lines and I think it would be great. Close second.

    Tyranx, your piece is great. Unfortunately, there is nothing about it that relates to the topic. With no description, I just see a nicely rendered sci-fi painting.

    Jakkas, you're crazy. What a great and hilarious idea! I would have never thought of that, you kill me man. I don't remember if you said it, but I get the feeling you never really meant for it to be a contender. My apologies if I am wrong.

    Bumskee that is a great rendering as well. Even with the description though, not really getting the topic from it. I think with that description a render of the interior would have been more appropriate. Just my opinion.

    Chaosrocks, I like how the scene now incorporates Gaia. It looks better than it originally did. I have scene some of your other watercolor paintings, and I think you have great colors in your pieces. I also think you would benefit by tightening up the drawing before getting to the color. Still, you get my vote this round for creatively depicting the topic. Gaia won me over.

    Voted for bumskee. I liked the interpretation of the brief, it's different and unexpected.

    Runner up was ChaosRocks... you hit on what I thought "Cradle of Life" was; more-so than others.

    Tyranx.... amazing again. But I agree with Artiphats about the concept. I'll still be studying your painting for hours though.

    Great work all, really different things this time...

    Whoops I forgot a description, silly me.

    Tyranx and Bumskee - both entries are well done - atmosphere, rendering and lights. Couldn’t vote for both of them so finally voted for Tyranx.

    Artiphats--Thanks you made my day.

    I too was dissappointed, I was hoping for more entries as I thought this was a great and open ended topic allowing for lots of interpretation
