Mind Over Machine by AlexRuizArt Mind Over Machine by AlexRuizArt
This is a piece I did for the CGSociety challenge, 'Spectacular'. I always love to try and show scale, and so here, we see our heroin, ever so small at the bottom of the image. But in her I wanted to show confidence, so she can take down that big bad machine!:)

Do you want to be a professional concept artist?

Mind Over Machine by *tarrzan blows my mind with how grand the scale is. That thought came to me while looking at this and it was a pleasure reading the description afterwards, goal achieved with excellence. ( Suggested by Nestalgica and Featured by Aeires )

I'm somewhat scared of what humans will make. We can do this with the world or live in it.
She should aim for the giant glowing thing on it's underside. That seems to be where all doomsday behemoths have a weakness.

Wow that guy is big. He's like a walking city. Or a boss from Final Fantasy.

The monstrous thing is great but I love the detail and textures of the buildings at the bottom almost more.

How interesting, that she's going up against the machine. To me it means society, to others it may mean something different. Either way, I relate to this very much.

Great work, keep it coming!
