    E.O.W Round 26: Heavens Gate - The Big Vote!
    "20 Years without war!" says the speaker: "This should also have played a role, that humanity can enter space for few bucks." Another voice answers. "Yah, you r right, today is a great day, the star of the first tourist-class spaceship will start in a few seconds!"
    I looked from the monitor to the TV, a large spaceship which was designed in an oldschool style spitted spoke and the red lights began to blink. A countdown began.

    So this is heavens gate, i thought giggling.

    The last task for the dead souls wandering the earth is to find heavens gate. Upon entering the gate all knowledge and the purpose of life is acquired. In life ignorance is bliss but in death complete knowledge of the universe brings about the highest form of serenity.

    E.O.W Round 26: Heavens Gate - The Big Vote!
    After a cataclysmic event certainly caused by human behaviours, all the life seems to have left the city. But there is still shadows which are waiting to take their last path, grumbling their bitterness and judging their ow, mistakes. If you listen carefully you can hear in a last sad breathe: "if only, we had..."

    E.O.W Round 26: Heavens Gate - The Big Vote!
    Millions of souls make the pilgrimage to Heaven's Gate, Nevada. God opens the gates to heaven once a year and He brings the faithful with him to heaven. Upon entering the light, the blasphemers and unrepentant sinners are instantly vaporized.

    The Seven Portals to the Seven Heavans.
    In a mountain range that exists on the edge of the physical plane, where the spiritual touches the tangible universe, stand the gates to the heavans. Seven portals, each a doorway to the realms of the Gods, are said to be the beginning of the soul's final journey. All who wish to be one with the Highest must pass thru a portal, and each portal is meant for different types of beings. A human who is passing on, finding favor with the Ancient Ones, will pass thru "Semilode enlu Gatifee - The Portal of the Third". Seen here to the lower right, The Portal of the Third is decorated with a pattern representing The Prayer Rugs of the Watchers, who keep the portals safe and hidden from the eyes of the Fallen.

    E.O.W Round 26: Heavens Gate - The Big Vote!
    The Gachlican Monks have developed a way to induce portal expansion with highly focussed particle cannons. They've named this phenomena 'opening Heaven's gate', as it leads to an alternate dimension completely untouched by human and alien lifeforms. The monks now offer a tour service to likeminded people, enabling them to experience the wonders of this destination. The cross-dimensional shuttle is loaded, and for no longer than 10 hours the patrons pass through a summoned portal and dock in 'Heaven'. When the alotted time expires, the command centre will reopen the gate.

    This seems to have negligible affect on the environment of both worlds, and strict guidelines have been set up to maintain this situation.

    Following the road of burning embers to the land of fire, is the only path to The Gates of Heaven. This is a journey of the body and mind. where the weak will pray for an quick death but if you can endure the quest. The rewards are unimaginable.

    A dig site in the syrian desert revealed an enormous monolith, made of unusual alloys. After months of research small areas of writing were deciphered to reveal that this was refered to heaven's gate by whoever constructed it. Further reading told of a connection between it and the cygnus x-1 black hole. It has been theorised that such dense material would be necessary in creating a stable shield against radiation types, that could be emitted from a black hole.

    The USI "Iru Loko" ist the most secure and most known prison of Stedtfeld Systems and is located on Iru II-A on an island, underground and most of the building under sea level. Here the most savage beast and the most dangarous beeings are kept, far away from the puplic society, the USI is the only building on the planet. Built from an alloy only known to some scientists who invented it, the only way to enter or exit is the tower that arises overground for about 100 metres. No prisoner or beast ever escaped, no one ever left dead and also because the tower is the only source of daylight it is called "The Heavens Gate" by prisoners and keepers.

    My vote goes to speculart either. The mood, and the lighting and choice of colours are great. And I love the stag.
    J.Mac was close second.

    And I'm glad nobody went for a Star Gate

    Voted for bumskee - something about the subject matter is just so phenomenal. I get a really strong sense of fate, and love how nature melds around the 'gateway'. Simple yet effective. The colour choice is very effective for a pathway to heaven.

    Heavens Gate

    Wow lots of really nice art,

    ~ Bumskee, Cognition.sb, Speculart, J.Mac, spyroteknik, and stewart one all did very nice work and deserve recognition

    But I ended up voting for Tom Garden because his piece really stood out to me, I really liked the feel of it. It seemed really creative and interesting and had what I felt was a more 'heavenly' atmosphere than the others - Nice work Tom!

    finally i thought this day would never come.... heh

    Bumskee got mine for colour, and composition. my mane crit for this one is the path you designed could use more work, it helps make it have space but it also is weak in its design and cause it to flatten alittle bit.

    Cognition.sb, Speculart, spyroteknik, and stewartone are up there in my opinion as well. everyone did a great job i really enjoyed this.

    Wow. Great topic and sweet work from everyone. Had to go with MrBlonde's tho. Its got great mix of emotion, action, and the fact that the gate is etheral than physical. Awesome shot!

    I voted for yAdam because I really liked his style and consistent brush strokes. Where you inspired by Half Life by any chance?

    bumskees was obviously the best technically, but i think it lacked the great ideas of some of the other ones.

    Hey BeamUs, thanks. I think I might have been slightly infuenced by hl2 (the bottom bit of the gate actually looks like a direct copy of those barrier things ) but I had been playing metroid prime 2 the day I did it and I was just trying to design something that could have been in a similar universe...

    Voted for bumskee....

    Dude, I have to disagree. The gentle, naturalistic concept is spot on IMO for the gateway to heaven. To be honest, Bumskee's piece screams concept, WAY over technical accuracy. If you can't feel the emotion from his piece, you really are missing out.
    Sorry to sound like such a fan-boy Bumskee, but honestly man, i love that image.

    Thanks everyone for the nice words AND votes! Thanks kian for sticking up for me, heh, I did think I had more "idea" in there rather than "execution" but everyone is entitled to their opinions I guess. Onto the next EOW...
