Well done! The concept and idea behind that painting is great though reminds me a bit of Panzer Dragoon universe. Anyway keep painting beautiful things.

Life forms evolved for a microgravity world.

Two sentients shepherd a trio of flying life forms, who have angled their bodies towards the 'sun' for warmth. Large black packs are bound to their bodies, filled with water which can be hard to come by.

In the far distance the forms of vast structures fill the sky.

No sentient living here has yet discovered their true nature.

Painted in Photoshop over about a week, it was a lot of fun.


You can see the Australian influence in the form of that big boomerang flying by in the background.

Five solid gold stars from me too.
This is *exactly* the kind of painting I would be doing, if only I had the talent.
Keep it up!
