Laputa AD 2419















Earlier this year I started to work on this image remembering the castles and hazy atmosphere from "ICO" then as I started to figure out the actual surface designs of the castle itself I began to think about "Gear of War".. I guess I am thinking what if their awesome military tech designs to be set in glorious ..fairy tale like ICO setting? hmm... waterfalls and pure tranquility with just a sound of w
ind breeze..

Laputa (Wikipedia) is a fictional place from the book Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift.

This is an interesting hybrid. The waterfall color makes me think the color was dyed instead of fresh water, it's fitting.

Cool. This works really well from a distance, the effect is nice, but still loose up close.

I love the combination of Moebius type shapes of tech with fairy tale big bad wolf stuff. The water just sets it off so much.
