Great start Michal. Looks like a fascinating idea already.

03-27-2008, 08:52 AM
It's great already :)

03-27-2008, 10:18 AM
Great looking concept, I really like the colors that you have in there!

Matt :)

03-27-2008, 10:55 AM
beautifully rich illustration already..the upside down version gives me a little vertigo to be honest :D

Great start


03-27-2008, 11:06 AM
This is a clever idea and I love your quick brushwork.

03-27-2008, 11:07 AM
Hej fajne! :thumbsup:

Great start Michał :thumbsup: this is a cool upside down piece you have here :D

03-28-2008, 11:56 PM (

Some changes in composition, I have expanded canvas. As you see, appeared new hexagon on the grass ;)

C&C most welcome, as always :)

03-29-2008, 03:24 AM
the expo on the canvas has done wonders for the composition..still beautifull colours.

No real crits of value..except easthetically you could place ship like shapes in the cloud..(top right i mean) :D.

Nice work! I like to viewing angle!
Very interresting scene!

Good luck!!

04-01-2008, 03:02 PM
Great concept, it's a powerful scene.

04-01-2008, 07:56 PM
hey i just figured out whats goin in the pic :P

cool stuff dude :thumbsup:


04-02-2008, 03:01 PM
Nice use of colour and lighting. I like the hexagon panels, it would be cool if they continued into the ladscape (on soil and rocks), to give the idea that it is a fully manufactured landscape. Great start though, keep it up.

04-02-2008, 03:41 PM
Fantastic scene! the most first thing "I FEEL" is the strong prospective...beautiful.

04-02-2008, 04:46 PM
superb. the mood you've got here is amazing.

love it

04-02-2008, 05:50 PM
That's a really cool concept you got there. I like the color that you have used and the flip is sweet. Good luck!

04-02-2008, 08:11 PM
very cool idea, and well executed... Are you going to have some creatures on the underside?

04-04-2008, 12:45 AM (

Changed some colours, add some details on background.
C&C as always, most welcome!

Thanks everybody for support!!!

04-07-2008, 10:30 PM (

Hi all,
I'm still working with sky, try to add more colors, more life to this piece.

C&C always most welcome!

04-08-2008, 06:09 AM
I think the dutch angle may be too extreme for my taste. But, I will give it my stamp of approval. I love the color choices. Good luck with your entry. :thumbsup:

04-09-2008, 09:52 AM
Beelow, you're right. Actually I'm working on it, try to rotate left upper part of this piece, hope it helps. Thanks!

Conception of teleport and gravity fix, in closeup.

C&C guys, C&C ;)

04-12-2008, 12:24 AM
wow, is a good point of view... i like the colors, the concept,,,the camera,,
i saw that the perspective between the grass (up) and the floor of wood (down) is not linear, have a little angle of desplacement to the left, but don't believe me..maybe you do this to have more impact! congratulations,,,i'll see the progress!!

04-18-2008, 05:03 PM
hey Michal! very good so far, horizon suggests much dynamism, so maybe you should add something (storm?) to bring even more dynamism. I like the relation between group and the one with hand raised.

04-19-2008, 03:27 AM
very very nice image the paint ,colors ,camera angle are superb!!beautiful!

04-21-2008, 09:16 PM (

Thanks guys for support!

Working with details...

04-21-2008, 09:44 PM
Great composition and color palette! :thumbsup:

04-28-2008, 10:25 PM
great concept
it tells a real story.

and super expression.
i just wish you have time to finish.

04-28-2008, 10:25 PM (

Invert piece this time, cause actually i.m working hard with "mechanical" part of this stuff, coloring, details etc. you know..

C&C are moooost welcome!!!

05-04-2008, 10:36 PM (

I think it's almost finished. I have changed some details like grass, clouds, machine... lighting, have to add some things and it will be done (barbarians ;/)


PS. If you have any suggestion, just feel free!

05-04-2008, 11:00 PM
This is really interesting! I'm not entirely sure what's going on, but I like it. The perspective is dizzying, the palette is nice, and I love that light coming through the clouds! The one part I think isn't working so well for me is how the chost figure is positioned directly behind the corporeal figure so that his heas is superimposed with the other figure's rear end. I liked the earlier version of the composition where the solid figure was more to the right of the host because both read as sepearte figures better.

The figure coming up from the bottom - it that a "ghost" or another actual person? He's pale like the ghost/hologram, but seems to be lacking in clothing details I would expect from a real human.

But anyhow, good luck on the last finishes.

05-08-2008, 09:23 AM (

I think it's done. maybe in near future I will do some changes, add some details..4 days to deadline, so who knows..;)

Thank everybody for comments!

05-08-2008, 10:07 AM
excellent piece mate.

good luck!

05-11-2008, 05:49 PM
very nice concept ....i cant decide wich layout i like best, i hope you can , theone dated on the 4th reads best to me though its easier to tell whats happening on the rother side of the sky.

05-13-2008, 09:53 AM
Great concept my friend. Very original. Good luck with this!!!

Hey Mayk, powodzenia :) Not much changed since last update, good that you've chosen this version (vertical flip is not better I think).
