( entirely in photoshop. This is my first time entering into this kind of competition, and actually the first painting that I ever finished. I'm looking forward to getting some critiques from everyone to help with my next image, which I've already started on.

A great first effort. I like the concept.

I've got to say, you aimed and hit the target. For a first painting you've done a great job. I just got a pen tablet for free so i am just learning the real art involved with painting.But keep things up and you'll be noticed. great job.

Thanks guys, im really looking forward to finishing my next entry because I think its going to be even better. There was definitly a steep learning curve, since I had to learn almost from the beginning about painting in photoshop.

vandal: pen tablets are definitly an essential. I shelled out a good one after I realized that.

Keep it up!

I think this entry has 100% Yerka's colors!Nice job.
Good luck!

I definitly tried to get the colors as close as I could, because I think it helps give the image a closer feel to that of yerkas.

i like this one!
it also reminds me of salvador dalis work a little bit, possibly the tendril like noodle type shapes, as i remember a couple of his images used that style too.
also the main rock formation with the buildings reminds me of "sleep" by dali (
i mean that in a good way :-) - very nice job

renall - thank you! I haven't studied much of dali's work so I really couldn't comment on any similarity. But its nice to hear that it reminds you of such a great artist.
