I just saw the notice for the new challenge, so I apologize that some of my commentary is a bit late - I LOVED what you had in some of your previous conceptuals and Wip's...such as the water and some of the direct light....however, what you have now is very interesting in texture, design and lighting. I think it captures the theme of this contest well, Good Job!

Thanks for everyones comments. I appreciate it

I want to stay away from the common idea of battle, so I dont feel the need to put in a character.

Fantastic, Voytek! Very good, really! Just one small thought: Is the tower in the middle supposed to be leaning to the left? It doesn't seem quite right.

Congratulations!

hehe YAY - more mORE!hehe...I am not sure about the tower thing as well...although it is subtle enough I didn't notice until pointed out - however, with it looking like an ancient hand hewn city, I am not sure it is a huge deal. But it is good to know lol

Quite a wonderful piece you're working on. The lush depth of the colors your using and the olive tiny to the landscape gives it a very forgotten and alien feel to it. The scene definately could use some other objects in it, perhaps people, vehicles, or even just floating chunks of land (depending on what theme you're going for) to enhance the depth of the picture.

Final Image: Final Work




Ok, It is finished. I would have liked to finish earlier, but I have been very busy art directing for a game company at the same time I was doing this painting. I had no computer access at my apartment, and had to travel to work everytime I wanted to work on the Space Opera Challenge. Often I was there very late working on the image. This is my 3rd digital work, done in Photoshop. I haven't used any references - everything is from my imagination.

The recent Tsunami disaster in Asia influenced me to do the water in the background of the image.

This is how I view other galactic civilisations, and I believe that disasters like this will ruin those civilisations as well. After all, human kind is so determined to find life similar to our own. The two characters at the bottom are a hope that somewhere out there, there is a race of beings who can be warned by their guardian angels.

I would like to thank everyone for their positive and constructive comments. Good luck to you all.

I will see you all in this place.

Great piece. Beautiful colors and texturing. Great technique. This would make a wonderful book illustration. It'll be on one of the top places for sure.

Congratulations!

Great painting ! Impressive "tsunami".
Your work isn't easy to read at the first look, but it's worth to take time to enter in it.
Congrats !
