Distant Relatives by PaulHectorT Distant Relatives by PaulHectorT
THE ILIAD Collection
Chapter 12: Distant Relatives

For centuries, men have pondered the possibility of life on other planets and tried to prove its existence. Mars has been the biggest focus of the ongoing search for life on other planets for decades. Since the telescope was first invented, astronomers have been able to see the channels in the terrain that look like canals or canyons. Finding water on a planet is vitally important to proving that life exists there because it acts as a solvent in chemical reactions for carbon-based life.

This work rings close to home. I'm all for extraterrestrial life :iconlovesplz: (You can probably tell, no? :giggle:) Pretty composition too.

Just one spaceship seems a bit out of place in terms of blending, the rest is good :)

you don't like ufo's in general or do you think it doesn't fit here? I wanted to make it clear to the viewers that this is an alien planet and not Earth, that's why I decided to put it.. :)
anyway thank you for taking time to give me feedback! I really appreciate it! :)
