Uplift Universe - Image Entry: Dimitrij Marufow


Gerardo and Eric: thanks so much for your comments, my Friends :slight_smile: And I’m very glad you like the story as well.

Yes Gerardo - I think that at our very core - if you cast away all the superficial differences - we’re all basicaly the “one” Being or to put it into other words - we’re apertures through which the Universe can know and inquire about itself.

I think that the most important question in life is “Who are you?” and that is, I think, the true reason why we find aliens so fascinating.

Through them - so we hope - we can better understand who we are and what our place in this world is.

But enough philosophy - I wish you the very best of luck and all the best!



Nice mood there ^^, and I like the story. Great work!


Inspired by Eric Scala I’ve decided to take the time and express my gratitude to all the talented artists who have made this contest so much fun and helped with their ideas, suggestions, comments and critique.

My deepest gratitude and thanks to you all, my dear friends :slight_smile:

This turned out a very nice pic man. Congrats.


Thanks a lot, mate :slight_smile:




I agree, it turned out excellently. There’s a lot I like about this piece but it’s the atmospheric lighting that really makes it in the end. Well done!!


Thank you so much, Simon - it realy means a lot to me :slight_smile:
