Witness

An amature astronomer, living in a colony on one of the moons of his home world, looks into the night sky with his telescope only to see one of their other moons being struck by what looks to be some kind of weapon. As he stands there watching the destruction of something that has been there his entire life, thoughts begin screaming in his mind. The thought that is screaming the loudest is, “If this is an attack, how much longer do we have?”

Just something quick I put together (just under two hours). I had an idea for a little story and decided to give it a try. I only spent about an hour and a half on this one so it’s far from perfect but I think it’s still fun. I hope you all enjoy.

    h3y justin, gr8 to see the fx of the lens-view stuff, makes it very unique; overall it’s also strong because the concept of the story adds depth, k33p up the g00d work =][=

  2. Thank you Rob. I’m glad you like it. I had this story pop in my head and felt like I had to sit down and draw it out.

    • lol.. yea it is. I decided at the last minute I wanted an up close planet and didn’t have the time to make a new one so I used that. I knew since it was so close to my header that someone would pick it up. That’s what happens when you do something quickly though, you have to cut some corners! Glad you like it though Brian.

    • Thank you Jayme! I figured that the story was needed on this one. I wasn’t sure if most people would recognize what it was.
