Great composition...and love the landscape. This is really original in ideas and style and definitely hints at the epic scale needed.

I look forward to seeing how this develops...keep the great WIPs coming!!

Thanx for your reactions, all of you !!!
Steve, I understand your point of view, but when I see other reactions on that thread, I think that all is possible with the jury. As I can't foretell their reaction, I prefer to follow my "instinct".
Many times I've shown my works to a jury, and their opinion always surprised me, so now I consider that's absolutly out of my control... So I will see.

Hi, All my encouragements for your GSO, thinks you of adding some
vehicles or civilizations with your large decorations
Good road

Coloring WIP: The only time we met them...

Hi, everyone !
I've added 2 ships running away to the city, to put more action in the scene. Black smog is caused by diesel powered engine, not very ecological... sorry greenpeace !
Later !

Wow, those 2 ships really add to the spiralness of this piece.. Just when you think it can't get any cooler, it does! Because of the black smoke and how small the ships are, they read to me as missiles, not ships... But I have no problem with that as it adds a feeling of conflict. Anyhow, curious what else (if anything) you plan to do with this, it's looking nice!

Thumbs up

Good idea to have put these two ships! It makes us feel the scale of your original environment! I haven't remarked the tiny lights of city perhaps in the rock... This thing is huge!! O_o'

see you

the ships

Hi again! That´s what I was talking about! The two ships give dinamics, intrigue, action! In my opinion I like another one a bit closer ot us. Excellent work!! Keep on it!!!

great idea about the ships . . . but as walrus said. make it more obvios that they are ships . . . because they do read as missiles. But this is a beutiful piece.
  11 November 2004
Your landscape is great!The ships is a good addition but i think they could be larger.The landscape is bad to be hidden.A compromise can be found. I have the same thougths concerning my entry.My characters would take much space in the scene, but then i will not show the vast world you show in your entry.Its difficult to decide.
  11 November 2004
Wow!!! I love this... very dynamic... excelent!
Good luck!

The two ships give more level to the composition, and a better sense of scale but as Walrus and others said, maybe you have to emphasize that the ships are ships, not missiles... And the black smoke looks GREAT

Coloring WIP: The only time we met them ...

I've made a new update, with more ships flying around the city.
I had two choices about missile-looking ships : I do bigger ships, OR I do plenty of small ships buzzing around the building, to suggest city 's traffic.
I chose the second possibility, because I have absolutly no idea of ship's shape, and I don't enjoy drawing it...
Later !!!

i really like how this image is turning out but i still think there is very little depth in it.
