coming along really well.My personal opinion will be to balance the picture with some mechanical or robotic stuff ,may be fishes with mechanical body or some thing like that .otherwise everything is gelling in nicely.will surely follow ur thread.
Best of luck for the challenge.

one thing i noticed after posting....

onthing I noticed after posting was I lost some tone contrast i had in the early version. I think I made the killing machine of doom a bit too light. Also want to add some orange backinto the mountains in the Back Ground.

Woow is really good!!

I think the fish swimming away is gonna be your big chance to give the whole scene a wonderful sense of depth!!

Keep it coming!!

I agree! Heh, lets hope i can pull it off. I might end up adding another fish (or element) in as well, which may lend its self to a bit more depth.

Thanks for the support!

wow starting to look nice. but i wonder what sort of phenomenon that causes fish to fly in the air like birds? i have seen fish jump out of the water but not fly, anyway it must be part of element of being strange so i think your image very fitting to the theme.

Hollow Earth

If you can follow the Lochness Monster with a submersible, it can lead you to a doorway to the Hollow Earth.

Line Art or Model: progress update: tone and compistional fix

Added some tone. Removed some clouds/fog from the middle (next to the death-bot of dooming's head). They were cutting a horizontal line right in the middle of the composition. Added some purples for depth and color along with various other lighting bits.

Whats next? Need to tighten the image up, work on the fishes more. Maybe add some stuff in the far background for more depth?

Thanks for all the great comments!

Progress goes. The face on the girl has been giving me some trouble, I think I'll work on it for a bit.

Someone told me about "Linda's Brushes" which, I'm trying out now. Working out kinda nice. I really need to play with brush types more. Just something that never really occured to me to play with sense most of the time (day job) I work at such a low rez that it doesnt matter.

More updates otw I'm sure.
