Thirst For Life by AlexRuizArt Thirst For Life by AlexRuizArt
***CLICK ON IMAGE TO SEE BIGGER!**
This is my entry for the Share One Planet competition. All of the animals depicted here are endangered to some degree.

The category I entered was 'Harmony', in which you had to show humans and animals in a peaceful state. I realized this was going to have to be a fantasy piece, because you can't realistically have all these animals around each other with a bloodbath!;)

The children here are representing the 'future kings and queens', rulers who will preserve balance between themselves and animals.

This was a challenging image for sure! And very different from what I usually do, but it definitely bridges the gap between my Simpsons animation background and current positions as a sci-fi/fantasy conceptual artist:)

All done in Photoshop and Painter.

Thanks so much for looking!

Holy mackeral. I found myself struggling to come up with a word to describe this, but "harmony" seems to capture the image better than anything else I can think of. One of the most beautiful images I've ever seen you post, and I've been watching you like five years now. :D Wonderful, wonderful, I love it.

I can't even describe what I feel when I look at this! this is just beautiful/sad/scary/mystical at the same time! its liek the animals are scared or sad and they are flocking to this well out of desperation, like they know something! I wish you luck on the competition. this is beautiful!

That's creepy… I mean, so much colours, so much good feelings in one place. Or maybe I'm just used to your art, but I feel some kind of heavy threat hiding somewhere. Like… I don't know, but it's definitely creepy.

Oh, wow...words can't describe how beautiful this is. Firstly, all the animals are amazingly perfect. Secondly, the lights that stream throughout this piece is just beautiful. It really makes this bloom. And thirdly, I cannot forget the universe in the back, the light like the sun on one side, and the moon and stars on the other. Just a beautiful, beautiful picture. I salute you. :clap:
