Mirroring the Sky by TaladarkieJJ Mirroring the Sky by TaladarkieJJ
I got the idea from a book about Egypt I was reading.
According to this book there's a theory that the pyramids and the Nile are the mirror image of the sky at ca. 10,500 B.C (Orion's belt & the milky way).

Hope you like it!

This is AMAZING! I'm currently really into space/scifi/huge planets in the sky stuff. You really captured the feeling that's the best in that genre/style.

Thanks for the :+fav: by the way! :D

This is so beautiful!! The desert looks very realistic, yet somehow it looks more... mysterious (? can`t find a good word...) through your awesome use of light and shadow.
And the sky!! :heart: I love all of the different clouds and the planets (moons?) and that lonely twinkling star!
Everything looks very perfect and the piece has a great atmosphere :D Lovely work!!

Being a fan of egypt I like this piece quite a lot. Before I started to focus on photography I had a lot of fun with 3D and digital art in general, and I remember trying to create scenes such as this. Fine peace of work! :)
