Rise of Niburu matte painting by fstarno Rise of Niburu matte painting by fstarno
Rise of Niburu is a personal matte painting inspired by the myth of the planet X, also called Niburu. This hypothetical astronomical object become more popular since the arrival of 2012. I though it could be funny to do an image about this story. I made it in 6 hours, inside the same day.

From Wikipedia:
Sitchin's theory proposes the planets Tiamat and Nibiru. Tiamat supposedly existed between Mars and Jupiter. He postulated that it was a thriving world in a much differently shaped solar system, with jungles and oceans, whose orbit was disrupted by the arrival of a large planet or very small star (less than twenty times the size of Jupiter) which passed through the solar system between 65 million and four billion years ago. The new orbits caused Tiamat to collide with one of the moons of this object, which is known as Nibiru. The debris from this collision are thought by the theory's proponents to have variously formed the asteroid belt, the moon, and the current incarnation of the planet Earth.

Beginning in 1995, websites such as ZetaTalk have identified Nibiru or "Planet X" as a large brown dwarf currently within our planetary system, soon to pass relatively close to Earth. Sitchin disagrees with the timing of passage.

To the Babylonians, Nibiru was the celestial body or region sometimes associated with the god Marduk. The word is Akkadian and the meaning is uncertain. Because of this, the hypothetical planet Nibiru is sometimes also referred to as Marduk. Sitchin hypothesizes it as a planet in a highly elliptic orbit around the Sun, with a perihelion passage some 3,600 years ago and assumed orbital period of about 3,750 years; he also claims it was the home of a technologically advanced human-like alien race, the Anunnaki, who apparently visited Earth in search of gold.

NASA imaged Nemesis (A Brown Dwarf Star), and Nibiru back in 2007-08, so, You might not be that far off my friend :)

Awesome work!
Very scary story, but i knew this story before.
Many people believe it, but i not!
NASA said Niburu doesn't exist!

If the crackpots are right and it turns out to be true, we'll all have to have a sit-down chat with the Annunaki about their Goa'uld style bad behavior - lol!
6 hours, woah! No detail scrimped on either - fantastic right down the to window frame and the curtains.

Thanks... 6 hours is a luck, I did'nt have to loose many hours of searching images. I've got everything pretty fast, that's why it's a luck. 6 hours was almost only photoshop work.
