Lunar Mining by TobiasRoetsch Lunar Mining by TobiasRoetsch
In the time of vanishing resources on Earth a gold rush has started on the moon. Elevators are transporting the materials into space from where it is shipped back to Earth.

First of all: great composition. Love all the little details you find when you take a bit longer to look at everything. It looks very realistic but still shows that it's not just a picture but a work with a lot of effort put in it.

Vision: Love the idea behind it. Without the description it's still easy to assume that it's about lifts on the moon and obviously something on the moon that grabs our attention/creates a reason to go there as mankind.

Originality: Okay so the work in itself isn't like the móst original, looking to just the moon and earth in one picture, as seen from a spacecraft. But the story behind it and the extra little details put in to it make for something that isn't just a 'space'-deviation. You take the moon, which is 'empty' usually, but add something which gives it a whole new purpose and feeling to it.

Technique: Everything is well composed. There aren't parts where there is too much going on. The border of the window around it creates some calm environment to ease out all the other things there are to see. The focus is obviously on the big lift, and after that on the gold veins, which give the whole image a darker, more exciting feeling. I love the colors of the space on the background, really subtile and it blends earth well towards the background. This together with the black border make the moon really stand out well. Only thing I'm not sure about is the size of earth, which should be a lot smaller when viewed from beyond the moon but that doesn't really matter.

Impact: I'm a sucker for most kinds of space-related art and this really gets my imagination going. I love what there is to see, it's well composed and grabs my attention. The dark side of the moon is put in a spot where it triggers some dark, ominous feelings for me like what else could people run into when going to those gold veins? Danger? Aliens? Who knows.

I'm in no way professional enough to really validate my critique but I hope it helps!

This feels like a pretty realistic rendition of a moon colony, especially with it being mostly carved into the ground rather than built up on it (avoiding radiation and all)
