Homecoming by OmeN2501 Homecoming by OmeN2501
My entry for CGTalk challenge "EON:Worlds within worlds". basically it was about creating illustration for featured book "EON".
For me Greg's Bear book is all about finding your way home. Under all of this sci-fi technology future plot is a basic need for everyone to find their own place in life. And so I wanted to capture that emotional message in my picture, don't know if I was successful but i tried :]

Photoshop and a little bit of 3d studio ;]

Hope you like it

You succeeded I believe. Massive ship, engines, two well crafted humans, you did a great job.

I always listen to the soundtrack Davy Jones when looking at this. Perfect song for this.

Wow it really does capture an emotion of the end of a journey and the start of another. Great work.

I just finished reading Eon and Eternity not very long ago, and they are up there very high on my list of favorite books. I was so happy to find an illustration for it, particularly one as fantastic as this. I'm more of a literature person myself, so I can't offer much in the way of thoughts on the artwork. But I can certainly say that the feeling you convey through the movement and expressions really do justice to the feeling of homesickness that permeates the stories. (Not sure if you have read Eternity, but this picture actually echoed with me even more for that book than with Eon.) Thank you so much for doing this.

(If I had the money I would happily commission you for cover work for my novel. I will begin saving up now.)
