Central Observatory by sherrae78 Central Observatory by sherrae78
This is the Central Observatory of Ashtaroth Astronomy Academy where students come to research and study. Various kinds of globes are all around the room and owls are like book keepers.

The piece was actually done in June, in participation of :iconquixotic-art-book:
You can still order the art book. (It's not well finished yet though, but we're allowed to submit our pieces already.)
It was a lot of fun building and putting my ideas into the place. Really want to go to this Academy for real haha. I just love studying astronomy; hope one day there's a place like this for me to go :)

sometime when I see drawings like this I cant stop thinking of this dream I had weeks ago - the dream is about my friend crying so I went away for a minute to see whats playing cards - actually they were building a mansion, and all suddenly the floor fell and I felt like a really big asteroid had hit the house - when I woke up from a blow on the head I my friend bleeding on the stomah and I don't have anything to heal the wounds - later then i fainted and woke up and all suddenly im in the amnesia castle where I found the libery that's very similer to this drawing - that's where I found more friends and then i spent time in the libery and the animatronics - it was fun for 5 hours in the libery and then i woke remembering parts of my dreams - goodnight

This is absolutely breathtaking! I can tell you put a lot of effort into this and it shows with how much attention to detail there is. My favorite part is how much depth there is in the academy. It really shows how grand and expansive the setting is. Amazing job, and I look forward to seeing more from your gallery :D

I really like this piece. It makes me think of what the Heterodyne library (from Girl Genius) would look like in the daylight, only bigger, with more owls and a telescope. Love the colors!
