Gaia by R3V4N Gaia by R3V4N
I think everyone know what is Gaia. The primal goddess personifying the Earth says mythology...
The spirit of the Earth, her soul itself.
For me? It is power joint with calm and protection. Anther sourceful being.
I really enjoyed whole creation process, except part i had to scale down that planet, because it was too big... Whatever, i wanted those details to be visible at last.
It took some time, i hope my next work will take more.
Enjoy then.
I hope you'll...

Your Welcome:)

hahahaha:rofl:
Do I know where Revan is from?:jedi:
1)He is one of my favorite expanded universe STAR WARS characters
2)I use Darth Revan as my name in Jedi Knight Academy Multiplayer for PC
3)the Star Wars movies & comics are my Holy Scriptures, like the Bible or Koran:reading::meditate:

You are not the only Jedi to wear the mantle of the Revanchist...

"You will have gone from being the Sith Lord himself, to the savior of our galaxy."
―Bastila Shan

Revan, renowned as "The Revanchist" and dreaded as the Sith Lord Darth Revan, was an eminent Jedi Knight turned conquering Dark Lord of the Sith until, stripped of his true persona, he returned to the crumbling Jedi Order and helped defeat the Sith Empire he had established. A Human male, he was trained as a Padawan by Kreia and a number of other Jedi Masters, both on Coruscant and at the Jedi Enclave on Dantooine.

Acknowledged as a very gifted pupil, by 3,964 BBY he was a Jedi Knight respected enough to amass a notable following that argued for Jedi intervention in the Mandalorian Wars. Though opposed in this by the Jedi Council itself, Revan could not be dissuaded. Revealing the horror of the Mandalorians' genocide of the Cathar, Revan bolstered his support base and then quickly circumvented the Council, exploiting a technicality that forced it to begrudgingly "sanction" the intervention he desired. With the Council sidelined, the charismatic young Jedi and his closest friend, Malak, were able to recruit and lead a faction of the Jedi Order to war without fear of reprisal.

A talented military tactician and strategist, Revan directed the Galactic Republic to victory after assuming command of its forces in 3,961 BBY, finally ending the conflict the following year with the defeat and execution of Mandalore the Ultimate, the destruction of Malachor V and the disarmament of the Mandalorian Neo-Crusaders—acts which earned him a reputation among the Mandalorians as Revan the Butcher. In the wake of this triumph, Revan, his loyal Jedi followers, and the third of the Republic fleet that remained under his direct control ventured into the Unknown Regions—ostensibly in pursuance of Mandalorian stragglers—and ceased all communications with the known galaxy.

In those unknown regions of space, on Dromund Kaas, Revan and Malak came face to face with the long hidden Sith Empire and its Emperor. Thus, having already embraced the seductive Sith teachings he encountered at the Trayus Academy on Malachor V, Revan's induction into their traditions was finally completed. Bid by his newfound master to acquire the Star Forge—a superweapon of the Infinite Empire—on his behalf, Revan successfully tracked down the last Rakatan Star Maps required to reveal its location. Upon securing the ancient space station, however, he returned to the civilization he had left behind openly as Darth Revan, proclaiming himself to be the Dark Lord of the Sith. Commanding the continued obedience of many veterans of the Mandalorian Wars, and alongside the man who was now his Sith apprentice, Darth Malak, Revan betrayed the Jedi, turned against the Republic, and plunged the known galaxy into the Jedi Civil War.

Utilizing the Star Forge to spawn an immense armada, Revan cut a carefully calculated path of conquest through the Outer Rim, building his own powerful Sith Empire to which new converts regularly flocked. Though the Republic staved off total defeat for two years, thanks to the extraordinary battle meditation of the gifted Jedi Bastila Shan, Revan's ultimate triumph seemed inevitable until he and Malak were ensnared by a Jedi trap. As a Republic fleet engaged that of the two ruling Sith, a strike team led by Shan boarded Revan's flagship and battled its way to the Dark Lord. Moments before the Jedi engaged Revan in combat, however, Malak—sensing an opportunity to be rid of both the Jedi and the Master whose power he coveted—had his own vessel open fire on the distracted Sith Lord's bridge. Caught by surprise, Revan was incapacitated by Malak's attack and then captured by the strike team while his traitorous apprentice, believing his Master destroyed, seized control of his Empire.

His mind shattered, his memories scattered, and soon thought dead by the galaxy-at-large, Revan's life was preserved by none other than Shan, an act that forged a Force bond between them. Either unable or unwilling to restore their prisoner's true self, but requiring the knowledge buried within his mind, the Jedi Council used the Force to rebuild Revan with a new identity loyal to the Republic. Almost one year later, after Revan, still oblivious to his true past, rescued the captive Shan alongside Commander Carth Onasi and an eclectic band of allies on Taris, the Jedi Council on Dantooine opted to retrain him. Reawakening to his former skills and charged with unearthing the source of Malak's colossal fleet, Revan and his loyal comrades thwarted all obstacles and adversaries as he and Shan were guided by shared "visions"—in truth Revan's own memories—to the Star Maps on Tatooine, Kashyyyk, Manaan, and Korriban.

In the midst of this odyssey, the group was ensnared by Admiral Saul Karath, commander of the Sith fleet, and imprisoned aboard the Leviathan. Though Revan and his friends escaped, killing Karath along the way, Darth Malak confronted his former Master, revealed his true identity and ultimately recaptured Shan, the woman Revan had come to love. Continuing in the face of this loss, Revan and his allies successfully discovered the final Star Map and the location of the Star Forge. There, in the Rakata System, Revan rejected the darkness of his past, turned Shan—whom Malak had broken to his will—back to the light and vanquished the reigning Dark Lord, playing his part in the battle that brought the war he had instigated to a close. A year onward, having driven the warring Sith factions from Korriban, Revan—with more memories returning—left the known galaxy behind on a solitary quest against the true Sith Empire. As of 3,641 BBY, he was thought to have never returned.

Oh. My. God!
It's literally the longest comment I have ever received, and I have ever seen here :o
But of course I agree, it was one of the best characters out there, and I love KotOR 1 and 2 :D
I wanted to play SW: Old Republic, but well, paying for a game I already bought isn't my kind of thing :D

Yeah, I havent always been a fan, either...
I never liked Star Trek:the Next Generation or the original series and Deep Space 9, kind of boring...

but, Star Trek:Voyager turned me into a fan(Jeri Ryan, oh man, she was Hot:heart:) as well as Star Trek:Enterprise(Jolene Blalock:P), those two series were the only ones I liked...
and the latest Star Trek reboot movie was really well made, I liked that one too:)

I love mah planet <33 *hugs it* Unfortunately, there really isn't much people can do about being spoiled brats and unintentional Earth-abusers until the government establishes an extra tyrannical policy. We ARE going to have to stop giving birth to girls sooner or later, if not disallow having more than one child or something [which would STILL be a lot.] The human population is already too large for the planet to support. And we ARE going to have to limit people's use of energy or destroy all of the nature-damaging ones forcefully. Unfortunately, people in charge of these companies often have a good share of political power themselves. Unless they were, say, immortal, I doubt they would think of mankind's future with more importance than their current financial success.

My favorite solution, of course, is that everyone puts their heads together and makes either a base on Mars or a giant space ship containing its own functioning ecosystem and get a whole lot of people to live there instead.
...Of course that's not going to happen. ;w;

Or for example make orbital station for people. Universe is huge enough :) I hope we'll find best sollution for that :(

Mythee Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
I love the orbital station idea, too <33
And, you know, I wonder if it's possible to reverse the we're-putting-too-much-carbon-into-the-atmosphere thing by HARVESTING it to make materials/somethingorother for space stationness somehow, or idk.

But you know, if this continues, the Earth's gonna die pretty soon [relatively] and people will have to put their heads and everything together soon in order to find some other place to live. [Possible another planet to ruin. xD]
