Tidepipe Station by Zirngibl Tidepipe Station by Zirngibl
This is inspired by my love of airports (though it is NOT one). It is featured as part of my Fymos I.P., as a travel hub. Fymos has a mostly-underground ocean and a lot of tidal forces, resulting in the "pumping" of water from one part of the moon to another on a predictable basis. People use this natural and powerful water flow to push capsule-like trains through tubes. (2012)

Wow I just saw this piece in the latest Issue of PopSci as a preview for the next Dispatch from the future section. (one of my faves by the way) When I read your name I was like, Hey I know this artist! This is awesome. Science and Art, the best of both worlds. Congrats, You blend the two well.

Thanks so much!  Yep, they picked the piece and it was definitely not my newest one, but who was I to argue with them?  haha

Incredibly detailed work :clap:! The complexity of the glass ceiling is mesmerizing; how did you make it, if you don't mind my asking of course? ^_^

This is amazing! It reminds me of James Gurney in its own way. What game is this for?

It's actually not for a game, so perhaps it's mislabeled.  It's for my own science fiction graphic novel project...  kind of in the spirit of James Gurney, now that you mention it.   haha

I will be updating my journal here on dA, as well as my blog here: www.kirstenzirngibl.com/#filte…  I've been keeping a lot of the project to my self for right now, but that will be changing in the next few months!  
Thank you for your interest.  :)
