The World has Moved On by Sidonie The World has Moved On by Sidonie
A commission for Arcnova of a theoretical future scene in which Arc dies a warrior's death. In this particular image a few seasons have passed since the event took place and nature is reclaiming him. A sad but lovely scene I think. 

During our road trip I read some of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. A running theme in the surreal story is 'and the world has moved on'. I thought it was fitting :)


18.5 hours, Photoshop CS6

Hello:
 As difficult as it is to draw an anthro dragon, it surely can be much harder to draw the skeleton and to make it with such level of plausability.

 The ambience you gave the pic fits perfectly and the colours are great. You did an amazing work :) .

This is a really great piece, and I regret that's all I can say about it.  It's very evocative and tremendously poignant.  Admittedly, it's something that I wish I could see in reality.  In other words, quite interesting.

Wow, this looks awesome! That spear had to have hurt! I must say though, this reminds me a lot of the opening scene from Diablo III

I haven't played either. I just remember the opening scene from watching play-throughs on YouTube. Here is the scene I'm talking about: www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3RPEM…

Mmm yes, games are so expensive!  We're going to be getting the Witcher and the new Fallout game soon :meow:

Yeah, it's not so much the price, it what I'm getting for the price. While Diablo III looks cool, from what I have seen, the gameplay is maybe somewhat marginal. If the price ever comes down, then I might get it!

Oh yeah! I have seen the Witcher series! It looks awesome! I also have admired the new Fallout, even having never played the first 4 Fallouts.

The Witcher looks pretty unreal!  I haven't played Fallout either, but they're actually made by Bethesda and the presentation/trailer looked pretty awesome!

Really?  It was so humid there when I was there!  It has been insanely dry though... Finally it started raining yesterday!  It's really weird, 'cause technically we live in a temperate rainforest :/

In Florida I think they don't have as much of one, in fact their having flooding right now. However, southern Georgia is having a moderate drought right now. Hopefully it will relent in the fall when we typically starting having the rain increase.
