I have been interested of late in creating imagery representing a future state. I guess this kind of Sc-Fi illustration can be a hard call. How do you visualize a level of technology beyond the present? Like ideas in Sc-Fi writing visual imagery also follows the current thought paradigm inherent in our present. I thought of trying to represent the future as being remarkably human, thus our maiden, but in a an extraordinary setting. Whats happening on the moon is almost incomprehensible or even indistinguishable from a natural event. Thats how I envisage the future to some degree, the technologies we might employ would utilize energies and means that encompass planetary spaces.
Our maiden is also a future human, which by present tenets of popular thought will have integrated biology with technology. She stands in a possible pressurized space, interfacing with information. Its not impossible to imagine today that the modal controls we use to interface with technology will migrate to something approaching a sixth sense.
The image continues to be a work in progress, I tend to never quite finish an image, It can be hard to let it go sometimes. 🙂 So perhaps at some stage in the future I will do some more work to it.
In the Meantime if you like it you can purchase framed prints and posters of it on my RedBubble page.
