End of the Cycle by ErikShoemaker End of the Cycle by ErikShoemaker
Do you remember me? I finally changed my username. Hint: I used to have a 1987 :)

Everyone who played the latest Mass Effect game will obviously see the inspiration here. I don't want to start just another debate about the game, I do think it was pretty epic despite the slightly disappointing ending.

This image is part of Slashthree's rolling exhibition "World Exhibition III". A new concept with biweekly installments. The first installment has only six pieces, but they're all pretty amazing I think. O.O Check it out here: [link]

The scene is based on a photo I took in New York. It's the view from the Empire State Building at Downtown Manhattan. Most ofthe other elements are painted with the exception of the huge harvesters in the distance, which are modified models from ~dmaland.

I really like this piece though I think you may want to carry a bit of the orange into the closes foreground some of the closest buildings are lacking the same tone as the rest of the city from the sunset.

Das sieht aus wie ein Kollektorenschiff bzw ein Reaper XD

ist tatsächlich an einen Reaper angelehnt^^
Heißt es im Deutschen wirklich "Kollektorenschiff?" :XD: ich hoffe ja nicht, hab die ME-Reihe nur auf Englisch gespielt..

jap es heißt wirklich Kollektorenschiff bzw Schiff der Kollektoren. Wie heißts denn im englischen? o.o

und? wie hasst du das Ende von ME 3 gefunden? XDDD

ErikShoemaker Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
naja allzu schwer war es nicht; man muss ja nur die Beschreibung lesen, um zu wissen, dass es ME-inspiriert ist. ;-)
Ich fand es gar ncht so schlecht. Gestört hat mich nur, dass sich alle Varianten so stark geähnelt haben, und die vorherigen Entscheidungen im Prinzip alle sinnlos waren.
Es heißt im Englischen eigentlich genauso. :D Im Deutschen klingt es nur irgendwie nicht so cool. Ich dachte erst Kollektorenschiff wäre die deutsche Übersetzung vom Reaper.

I've been in Manhattan for a week and I think it was pretty amazing. Of course, only if you go to the nice places and keep away from the dark alleys. After a while the crowds of people and the constant noise can become quite stressful as well. And it was extremely expensive too. But still, it was a great experience (for one week) :D
