Perhaps someday in the far off future, in a time on lunar colonies, residents of the moon will admire a beautiful Earth rise over the lunar horizon.

That's the basic idea behind Joseph Cross' lunar city concept art. Cross has a lot of experience in developing concept art for far flung science fiction franchises, particularly in the world of gaming. A casual glance at his personal website yields some very impressive concept art for franchises like Dead Space and the upcoming Destiny from Halo-maker Bungie.

The 'Earth Rise on Luna City' concept isn't attached to any particular franchise, but rather gives an incredibly detailed glimpse of how the moon would look with a sprawling city cast across the cratered surface of our closest cosmic neighbor.
