Icarus by Shinybinary Icarus by Shinybinary
This is my rather loose interpretation of the story of Icarus. It's actually an older, 'colour test' version, made before the final image which you can see on my site. I thought it would be more interesting to put this version up rather than exactly the same one that's been on show elsewhere for a month already. Thanks to =NullVoiD for letting me use an old render of his in some of the details, very useful it was too :}

Great stock from =resurgere

Oh and it was my birthday yesterday, so this is my first submission as a 24 year old :} I'm getting too old for this game :{

Everything looks like it's just flying into a million pieces. I like it. It's much more dramatic and flashy than most interpretations I've seen.
