"Meanwhile... in a different part of the universe, another ruler and his pet are watching the cosmic horizon. In their culture the warbird he carries is a symbol of power and courage."

This image is painted in photoshop CS6. Part of the space is painted from photo reference. To the right you can see the Pillars of creation!

This is the second image in a serie of 3 originally inspired by one of the dark knight posters.

Fantastic series! I think this one is my favorite. I like the three elements, the planet, the man, and the pillars, all contrasting each other.

Found you over on Shadowness (commented as DorothyTRose). I really like all of these images. Still like the 3rd one best, I think, but this one is pretty awesome, too. Love the red of the first one, too.

Unlike two other Rulers, this one isn't looking forward, like a conqueror. He is looking at his bird, "a symbol of power and courage", as said, but also his pet. He looks like a man who doesn't just rule. He does it for those, who he shall protect. For his... little birds, that could be so easily slain by carnivores.

The view is colorfull. it isn't "warm" or "cold" as the others. It's full of events, not necessairly pleasant. That's why he rules- because his world has yet to become warm. A lot of work ahead of him, as well as great responsibility.

Wonderful! I loved the first one, but I don't like cats much and the colours were too agressive for my desktop (even that scene looks much calmer than this one), so I'm glad you've made this blue observatory with that parrot :) (though I find the first guy cooler). I'm looking forward for the third Lord (or Lady maybe?) and his (her) pet
