The fallen empire by Skema9 The fallen empire by Skema9
Fallen, yet standing
Calm, but out of control
nature has brought it back to life
with a heart, a story and soul

it's brigther than ever, here in the dark
it's full of life, it's torn apart
drags you in, to keep you out
cold wind, clear and loud

So beautiful, could make you cry
imagen this place, before it died
makes you shutter, shuts your mouth
fallen, yet standing proud

In The fallen empire by ~Skema9, brilliant use of many stock images coupled with skillful blending and incredible lighting create tell the story of something mighty that has fallen but is perhaps someday to rise again. ( Suggested by kuschelirmel and Featured by Aeirmid )

You did this on a wacom bamboo? Im thinking about getting a bamboo or maybe an intuos. Still cant decide. What would you suggest ?

Surley intuos is a better choice for a digital painter, now there's the new model of the wacoom tablet, so i really don't know how they are.
Personally i chose the bamboo because was cheaper and because i just use painting to add details to the piece, mainly i use a lot of photo stock.
So, depends everything by your needs, if you are a painter, probably intuos is far better :)
