Our sun, and our system, being really unlucky when something that shouldn't have happened really happened. A black hole spawned some 10-thousand kilometres from the sun, first to go were the planets closest to the sun. After this the gravitation started pulling our earth closer and closer.

Its an interesting concept, do you have time to finish it? Come on, try!

...A few moments later we knew project "Gravity" was successful... but the security measures taken were obviously not enough to shield the experiment from the rest of the world...
Project "Gravity" involved the creation of a extremely small-sized black hole to expand our knowledge about their properties/abilities and maybe find ways to utilize them.
The experiment - after the theoretical side had been taken care of - was conducted in space. This to eliminate the constants of atmoshpere and gravity (partially) and in case of a meltdown as the one which occured when the first working fusion reactor - (after running for 50 years malfunctioned for a to-this-day uknown reason and exploded on a quite large scale). Some distance between the satellites closest and farthest from Earth (but still circling around it, mind you). Now, if the experiment would explode or implode, the effects on Earth would be almost nil.
So after all parts required had been sent to space, the assembly could begin. This procedure was followed by viewers all over the planet (since it was all shown on a special channel). We who had worked with the project were all ecstatic at what secrets we might soon uncover.
And three months later, the last night before the start we acted like children on the night before christmas, filled with anticipation...
..."Good luck!" we said to the scientist before the experiment was initiated by the press of a button...
all monitors go blank ...
sound is replaced by a silence...
and now i see it ... before me,
the black hole...
but ... i'm not looking at the monitors ... i'm looking out the window of our office ...
at that little beautiful black spot above the horizon but below the sun ... "look" is the
only word i can say to my collegues ... and a few moments later as surprised faces turn towards that same little spot which bends and distorts the very light around it ...
Panic ...
but we all stand still and watch the scenario playing before us ... we know we can't escape ... we watch, and marvel at the darkness that consumes the greatest achievements of mankind ...

I wrote this background story so i'll have a easier time getting the feeling for the pic right. And i will probably change it a bit, so comments and critiques would be greatly appreciated!

@Jose Pardo: Yes! I'll try! :D

Errmm... i decided to add a wider FOV since the other one felt a bit thin... and i might be able to show the interior of the building "we" are currently in...
Gogogo, C&C!

Nice story.. I cant imagine the panic i would feel in a situation like it!

You better paint like crazy if you want to finish this in time! Snabba! Dont wanna stress you or anything :p..

Lycka till!

Aaah! I don't know what to do with the breaking building with the red lines!
I think it's wrong in perspective, but i don't know if i should fix it or not, cause for some reason i like the way it looks... :/

Help please!

Looks ok to me.. Dont get hung up on getting the perspective perfect by the pixel! The red line you've drawn only show a building standing up in a very simple one point perspective.. but this one is falling therefore the perspective of the other buildings doesnt apply to it in the same way.. I think the current perspective of the falling building works just fine, though im no expert. :/

Tip: Dont worry too much about making the perspective perfect, get on with coloring! :) As long as there isnt any perspective issues that disturbes the image you should be fine..

Lalalala, i've realized that this is a pretty stupid idea after all, but i'm still gonna finish it anyway... errmmm... finish it as far as i can... (because ppl might die from lack of oxygen or die from the vacuum as the black hole absorbs the atmosphere before actually being crushed in by it)
Anyhow i did as you said Niklas and just went on, (after thinking and procrastinating too much) the tower stays the same, and i've started to add details. (Even though the picture as a whole isn't completely blocked in.)
I resized the sun, added the tree, threw down some colors to the sky and added details to the debris. Oh, and i FLIPPED the picture!

I = an IDIOT...

12-05-2005, 12:11 AM (

Woohooo! I ain't gonna finish in time! I flipped the image back, added two more trees some colors and highlights on the street and messed a bit with the sky.
To begin with, i haven't been very active in talking to other ppl and giving critiques... second, i accidentally saved the file in a 72 Dpi format... third, i... am... the... MASTER at procrastinating...
Still, I'll go as far as i can with this pic, then start on something new...
