A blustered man stands planted and looks to the sky. Behind the glowing moon his mind pours fourth visions of radiating clouds, swirling with colour and promising new life to the stars growing within that will soon twinkle and illuminate their surroundings. Thick belts of asteroids and galaxies churn their way through the depths of space surrounded by magestic planets grasping onto their children while they hover suspended by forces unimaginable. Through all these fantasies the man is reminded of his own insignificance and wonders if ever he will escape the bonds holding him in his place.
Ive poured 2 weeks into this piece and its really nice to see it completed. It started with and idea that I threw into concept stages and carried right through to this finished product that I am really happy with. Working alot with my colour schematic, lighting and overall communicational theories and practices. No resources used...yes I did make the house -.- Used a huge amount of different programs and techniques...from photo maniping myself in to the piece to digitally painting the nebula to modelling the house...not much else to say but except I really hope you pick up the feel and enjoy as much as I do.
Programs: Photoshop 7.0
3D Studio Max 4.0
Vue D'esprit 4 Pro
(My digital Cam..Oympus c-60)
Time Estimation: 30 hours
**edit**It seemed almost everyone took note of the compositional barriers produced by the 50% sized version I threw up...this is a vast project with many elements and at that size the composition appeared to "cluttered". Therefore this is a ~2/3s size and is quite a bit bigger. I think now the different elements can truly be appreciated (with alot of scrolling -.-) ..Id love to hear your feedback now!
**UPDATE**Prints now are now up on DA, as you can see I got myself a prints account finally, if any of you are interested and have any issues with prices feel more than welcome to mention them to me. Also thank you all for the heaps of comments you've left for me, all I can say is Im glad that you all enjoyed it so much, in the future feel free however to leave any critiques at all that you have, all it does is help me see what needs improving. Keep at it all and get all the expression and enjoyment out of art that it has to offer

The heavens and earth meet. Reverie by ~genocide-54 combines a vast array of technique. If you like a sci-fi or rendered scene the combination of both as seen here will turn your head. (
Absolutely one The Best work i've seen on DeviantArt truly a masterpiece.. so detailed, so mesmeric, so Powerful.. Astonishingly Beautiful.. Love, Love, Love it. Bravo.. particularly the setting captivated me
wow. that's really beautiful. is as if you can just split the picture across the middle horizontally...then it's too different pictures! the colours are amazing and work really well against the black the background. it's got to be a fave! xxx
wow, this piece is really amazing, not only the many techniques and programs you used here, but the amount of detail...I like especially the space art part, your planets are extremely well textured and detailed, yet soft...the starfield is dense, yet depthful and the nebulas work fine too.
the house and the man looking upwards are a nice and unusual touch too....but: my biggest critique is that the image is just too overloaded with elements...as if you wanted to throw every possible thing into one image...I think it would have been better without the mountains and the asteroids...it would give more space to the eyes.
well, a few other small critiques: first, I think the mountains lack a bit of contrast, they look rather dull, and the mountains, the man and the render look a little smudged in...a thing I'd usually try to avoid in such cases, hard edges look more realistic
ah, and yeah, the clouds... hm, I think they shouldn't not be blended in this way, despite the fact that they are actually just frozen water, clouds aren't really see-through, but totally opaque... thus modes like soft light usually don't work too good. I personally like to blend in my colours by setting them to multiply and masking out what I don't need.
the house is nicely done, and with a good bump, and I like the ice on the windows... it might be a little sharper, but it's ok.
well, I hope you don't mind my critiques, it remains a great piece of art
I can't really see anything in this that I don't like or don't think works. it's all incredibly detailed and very enjoyable to look at. amazing and very impressive work on this. my favourite part is the bottom half, below the planets, it just has such a real feeling to it, that silver moonlight lighting up the snowy world. I love that, it's my favourite thing about winter, looking out my bedroom window on a full moon night with no clouds. this captures that feeling beautifully, the wondering and imagining. great job!
This is just so heart-breakingly amazing. It captured my attention the moment I saw it. The overall execution of your concept is just excellent. Great Composition and I love the use of colour here and how you have done the nebula and worked with textures. Youve done well to make use of a variety of tools.
Overall the thing I love most is its 3D, how youve added a human element and the way you have worked with light (Painting with Light is something I am very much interested in). What does bring it to life is having that figure there enveloped by Mother Earth and contemplating Father Sky (hey Im Native American -- thats how I see things *grins*) and all that lies beyond...In this moment he knows there is more that is even greater than himself...
