The Day We Left Earth by 88grzes The Day We Left Earth by 88grzes

About 2 months ago I heard about this contest. I decided to participate. So I take
3th place on IT'S ART Challenge
"The Day We Left Earth"

"We humans have lived on earth for too long. Perhaps we made a mistake or did not take care of our planet, and now, we have no choice but to leave the earth. This is the beginning of a new era and we must remember our mistakes while we rebuild humanity."

Hope You like it! :)

this feels like something similar to mine. the humans leaving earth after they realized what they have done and in my head,the animals are just as smart as humans.the humans leave and vow to never return,much to the earth's pain,


in my head,the earthquakes,stunamis,tornadoes and other natural disasters are really the earth...crying out in pain.the animals take the huamns' leaving very hard,they want to help them understand that they can rebuild but the humans are too heart-broken to listen and leave earth.


the ending's happy,because the animals were able to bring the humans back to the earth after hearing their pleas and desire to help them. thus the earth enters an era of peace and unity

Great title for a suggestive image. I love the pose--it suggests someone standing where I am, holding a futuristic camera.

there is one russian song about motives and the meaning of that masterpiece
it's named - The grass near our homes ... here it's words

The earth in the illuminator, the earth in the illuminator,
The earth in the illuminator is visible...
The way a son would miss his mother, the way a son would miss his mother,
We miss the earth - there is no other.

And the stars even so, the stars even so
Are getting closer but remain as cold.
And just like in the time of eclipse, just like in the time of eclipse,
We seek the light and dream earthly dreams.

And dream we not of the thundorous spaceport,
Not of this icy azure,
We're dreaming of the grass outside our homes,
The green, green grass.

And fly we like orbits,
Through untouched paths,
Embroiding the space with meteors.
The risk and bravery are justified,
The music of the space
Is sipping into our formal chat.

In dim smoke,
The earth in the illuminator -
Sun-set mingled with sun-rise.
The son is missing his mother, missing his mother,
And the mother is waiting for her son,
And so is the earth.

And dream we not of the thundorous spaceport,
Not of this icy azure,
We're dreaming of the grass outside our homes,
The green, green grass.

And dream we not of the thundorous spaceport,
Not of this icy azure,
We're dreaming of the grass outside our homes,
The green, green grass.

We're leaving together
But still it's farewell
And maybe we'll come back
To earth, who can tell

I guess there is no one to blame
We're leaving ground(leaving ground)
Will things ever be the same again
It's a final countdown

The final countdown

We're heading for Venus
And still we stand tall
'Cause maybe they've seen us
And welcome us all

With so many light years to go
And thing to be found
I'm sure that we'll all miss her so
It's the final countdown

The final countdown

It's the final countdown

We're leaving together

The final countdown

We'll all miss her so

It's the final countdown

I love this so much. It is absolutely beautiful. I love the emotion of the character. The background is so detailed and the colors work so well. It's amazing!

If you don't mind me asking do you use a tablet? And if so what kind?

I love her face, so dramatic
BatTech Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013
It looks like something out of the Eclipse Phase RPG books (that's a compliment -- their art is very high quality too). It might be worthwhile to drop them a note ( and have them keep you in mind for future work, or just add you to their list of player resources.

PWNERGUY1000 Featured By Owner May 28, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
that is very sad, having to leave earth forever, it was our home planet for a little while, but now only shame and awful memories remain. and we might die of :alien:'s before we get a chance to rebuild.
Eltrueno Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
At least we shall know that the earth will rebuild itself without our destructive behavior.
And, perhaps, harbor a new sentient species in the future...

this was my inspiration to write my story Immortal Breath. They're still on Earth, but this image just got me thinking about this stuff.

Thank you, O wonderful person, for making this piece. :D
