Artwork Description

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 them

Ahh Marley, you're art is so unique you give your subjects an other worldly quality so rarely seen elsewhere. If I was dishing out Editor's picks you and Uwe would have had quite a few by now, but unfortunately you're just have to settle for my admiration and respect for your artwork.

You finished it, and nice job too! What I like about your pictures is that they often appear totally alien, almost like dreams. Good luck in the contest.

Art at its best.
