Many thanks all for the comments and thanks to all friends commenting here a lot of so nice comments and I can't answer to each one but be sure I read them all carefully ,
That's a real present to receive the CG choice Award with this piece at the same time of SVMaerospace and Elhor and few time after Felideus.

Thanks ! ! !

In my opinion , the CG choice Award is the biggest, more valuable and more difficult prize to obtain in digital painting or illustration. I'm really honoured to now being displayed on the Choice Gallery at CGTalk.

And I have another reason to feel honoured ; I'm the first 2D awarded with Gimp / Mypaint / Alchemy on Linux... This openness and recognition from CGsociety is really valuable for my work with Free/Libre Open Sources Softwares on Linux.

Thousand thanks CGsociety !

Hey thanks a lot !

I think it's the good time to share my chaotic receipt ;

1. I started the image with a bit of experimenting in Blender ; I rendered a grid with a wire frame material and played with the node compositor to have a fish-eye effect. During the time I made this I thought about the feeling I wanted to develop in this illustration ; the deformation of space and time ( but this last one is difficult to show in a still picture ).
So, playing with a grid is fun in Blender and experimentation is always fun too.

2. With Alchemy , I started to produce Chaos , ( My conception of 'Chaos' is already developed in this video : as well as in my DVD ) , and I had cut part of warped grid over the chaos. It produced a good mix of unknown shapes but in a perspective environment.

3. Here are the result of my chaos done with Alchemy, with my grid done with Blender, and the central character sketched.

4. I coloured my chaos in orange ; my dominant colour tone in the illustration and started to paint detail after details inspiring by the shapes I was seeing in the chaos. Same process than the Rorschach test or when kid recognize shapes in the clouds ; for me a strong creative process.

5. All main elements of the illustration appear one by one this way, without particularly try to blend transition between different places.

6. Of course, all this element started to create a big mess with composition, and I had to work to crop ; arrange and find transition more or less easy for the eyes to makes all the element fit in one picture. That was may be the most painful part of the illustration.

7. And here is the final

8. In addition to the curious that didn't imagine or never seen what look like Mypaint and Gimp-painter on my LinuxMint system , I copied this 2 screenshots. Those software are really productive and are stable... a very good environment for professional digital painting.

I hope you liked this little 'making of ' , thanks again for the award !
