Testament of the Majestic BeastSlashTHREE exhibition 12: Steampunk
This is a quite quick matte painting I did as a sequel to "Glampunk Spacepipes". About 8 hours of work and everything done with Photoshop and my Wacom Bamboo.
Story: Steampipelines from Earth to Mars.
Once upon a time the people from Earth found out that mysteriously enough steam is the best element to transport energy.
In order to connect the steam pipelines with outer space humans had to build giant atmosphere emitters to create an artificial atmosphere. The new technology doesn't work as they would like it to. At places where the selfexpanding pipes break through Earth's atmosphere, huge ozone holes cause an incredibly hot and dangerous environment. All life slowly fades away due to too hot machines which produce an unfavourable oxygen content in the air, while anomalous hurricanes and lightning turn the dilemma into an irreversible process.
Thank you guys for all the favs and comments, I appreciate it!
