Sailing The Desert by Gate-To-Nowhere Sailing The Desert by Gate-To-Nowhere
Now something surreal :)

Done in Photoshop and Terragen. I used a terragen-render for the dunes but the most part is done in Photoshop.

Resolutions:
1024x768
1280x960
1440x900

-------


Wow, it became DD totay! Thanky so much!! :) That is a nice birthday present too :)

Given 2008-07-24
I was completely confused, when choosing an artwork from *Gate-To-Nowhere's gallery for a feature, but Sailing The Desert is one of her creations which is very special , and one of the masterpieces she has produced. Do checkout her absolutely stunning gallery! ( Featured by archanN )

A ship in the middle of a desert? Pretty unexpected!
It has a pretty limited amount of color but it doesn't look pale at all. Beautiful work!

To me, it reminds that scene from "The Adventures of Baron Munchausen", when the ship is sailling over sands of the moon.

Sand Dunes

Sea waves are green and wet,
But up from where they die,
Rise others vaster yet,
And those are brown and dry.

They are the sea made land
To come at the fisher town,
And bury in solid sand
The men she could not drown.

She may know cove and cape,
But she does not know mankind
If by any change of shape,
She hopes to cut off mind.

Men left her a ship to sink:
They can leave her a hut as well;
And be but more free to think
For the one more cast-off shell.
