Sci fi/Fantasy image by

just completed for the CGChallenge 'Uplift' Inspired by the Uplift series by David Brin The gist of it all..The light structure in the middle is representative of the Original Alien species that started it all (Progenators).. And how they have cast a long Light (or shadow) across the many generations of Aliens. Their Knowledge, the very basis of many species existence.... The objective of the contest was to depict interaction between human and alien or other sentient species.. The human aspect is not entirely accurate to the novels..The relation of humans (or human like) here was inspired by Brian Aldiss's 'HotHouse' my most enjoyed reading experience i have ever had!!. A reference to the very tall trees with human tribes attached to themSpent just over a week on this i guess.If anybody is interested in the progression stages of the artwork, you can view it here http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=235&t=610245 Thanks very much everybody, take care Marley
