Planet Earth 3009 by GiuseppeParisi Planet Earth 3009 by GiuseppeParisi
It took me the whole last saturday to paint everything but it was worth it I think.

The original plate comes from a photo I took on the airplane during my flight back to Naples from France. I took this picture from the window I was sitting next to while soaring over the city

That mountain is the Vesuvio, the volcano of Naples, and I thought it might be a great scene for some fantasy painting: so it was!
I tried to imagine the earth in 1000 years from now with the ground beginning to collapse under the core rising temperature, a strong greenhouse effect and the people building new cities inside new mountains came from strong earthquakes of the past. I don't know what the lasers are used for... maybe a way to fix the atmosphere?
I need your help eheh

Hi Giuseppe, I saw a comment you made on one of Radojavor's latest pieces and came to have a look at your gallery.

I really like your style, it's just a shame you don't put up slightly bigger images. 470 pixels in not quite enough to judge all the details, especially in a piece like this one... but that's just my two cents, I understand the need to protect your art.

As for the function of the lasers, there are real world projects to have solar satellites send the collected energy back down to earth via microwave beams. While those would not exactly be visible to the human eye, I would think this is something similar :)
