cataclysm-v1 by DerekEmmons cataclysm-v1 by DerekEmmons
Years have passed.... and peace has become a compromise unchallenged by the machines, now that the reserves of humans have depleted and many walked freely among the real world, new systems have been set in place for adapting to life on the surface. Elements of machine have been implanted into many of the "outlanders" that lived on the surface, where they are now neither human nor machine. this society has begun to revolt, feeling that their superior breed should dominate the real world and manifest and control the machine city. Far away from these baron wastelands large enclosed domes have been built on the surface to house the masses of humans that were locked to the matrix since birth. These are cities of humans unable to commit to the understanding of how they played a major roll in the lifesforce of the machines.

The story begins...Outlanders have concluded that these lower form of humans will be the deciding factor in their dominance over the machines. New more destructive machines are thriving like a plague of locusts many miles outside of the main city..powered by ore found in abundance everywhere, seemingly inexhaustable..whereas now they need not rely on the humans as a source of energy________________why should peace be maintained?
Inevitable that the machines have decided to erradicate all life on the planet...neither species as evolved as they have become realize that a new war is on the horizon>one that will once again begin on the surface..

to be continued.

I absolutely love the matrix and I absolutely love this picture.

My favorite place in the trilogy: the real world. I especially adore the machines, with nimble and fluid movement accompanied by a perfect form, but at the same time they carry a menacing visage and become easily horrific when they attack.

This picture represents them perfectly.



Faved =)

I like it - it's very nice work. Allow me to come with some criticism, though?...

You need to do better masks - there's really noticeable jagged edges (aliased), especially in the shapes in the bottom part of the image. If I look at the top 60% of the image, it's superb work - the bottom 40% looks hurried and just plain bad in the parts where the jagged edges really stand out. (bottom left)

Anyhow - take it as it is, contructive criticism. Overall, it's an awesome piece. :)
