Return To Chronos Keep by tigaer Return To Chronos Keep by tigaer

I started this one shortly after I finished reading 'Hyperion Cantos' by Dan Simmons. Easily some of the best scifi you will ever read. So, go... get it and read it if you haven't! I decided to try myself on a scene from the book (and there are so many good ones).

Hello! This is such an awesome take on that scene, beautiful art! 
Would you be ok with me using it to illustrate the Hyperion Cantos Wiki article about the Chronos Keep and the Hyperion planet? 
Credits with link would be added to the caption, of course.
Thank you.

Beautiful work! And, yeah- Hyperion Cantos. So good >.< Hyperion is right there with Dune as my favorite sci-fi series. Great to see it get a DD.

So much inspiration in those pages. My contribution below!

Thanks a lot. I had quite a fight with the colours since they are a little unusual to my usual taste. Oriented myself on the descriptions in the book. Worked well. :)

Quite interesting. It matches quite closely how I imagined Keep Chronos too. I've read the Hyperion books several times becuse they are among the best of Sci-Fi. I totally disagree with Jonas72 though about the Ilium books. Complete crap.
