At its Dawn by godwinfj At its Dawn by godwinfj
A fairly simple tribute to the Command & Conquer series of games as well as a re-imagining of broader narratives present in the 1995 debut production known to fans as 'Tiberian Dawn'; this painting reframes that fiction in a more serious tone for the consideration of real-world issues surrounding warfare and defence.

Photoshop CS2
April 2007

I could almost imagine that tall spire in the background glow an intense, bright red.

On the other hand, it's about to get ripped apart by A-10's so go go go, GDI ground pounders!

Don't wanna sound pessimistic but EA will never do a "Dawn" remake justice. Westwood Studios would need a direct element of control.

A very good tribute! A more serious tone is what the c&c-universe needs. EA should do a remake of dawn.

This is really cool. Command and Conquer started off very grim, and gradually got more cartoony with the Red Alert Franchise (At 2, specifically) so I'm happy to see a tribute to the more grim side of C and C.

Very well done I can not really see the background too well, is there supposed to be something there that is the focal point? Looks like towers or something anyway I really like how you positioned everything correctly even the thrusters on the orcas to look more realistic.
