Bobby, Linus and Axel thanks for the encouragement! Fernando good point on the scale issue for the singer, he is singing, “You ain’t nothing but a Hair-Ball”.

Hi Ralph,
Me like those nice lights in the palms! It definitely adds more flavour to the king, and his pump singing instrument, hahaha! Love it, the composition read better to me since there’s a wider canvas and the group tells the history all together, maybe as a suggestion the sky in some purple hues clouds will help the entire brown palette you got! But then again just a suggestion, I just imagine it at this point; nothing that it’s really needs it!

Korendo - Looking good buddy, i like your new crop, it gives some more room for things, which works...

You palm trees are great, they really add to the scene and to the concept. I still feel like things are a bit centered in the image, which makes it look like more of a poster design, than an illustration. I guess if I were you, I'd off-center the moon and the close-up elvis towards the right a little, Lady and the tiger towards left, and the left-elvis towards more left. That could help break-up the composition a little bit, now it feels like things are crammed in the middle. keep up the good work!

Bobby thanks again for the encouragement. And Thaldir thanks for thinking of me on the FTP upload info (Zion Main Frame Code) .

Alex, thanks I agree the sky was starting to really bug me so I spent some time adding some color to it. Also added reflections in the “pond” and many little touchups. Still more touch ups and detail work to do, also note; this particular moon is in a very low orbit under the clouds.

Just got your latest suggestions Jeff, again you are extremely perceptive thanks I will reflect on them. Looks like a another busy weekend!

oh wow, your colors are coming along great! I'm loving this psychodelic feel the image is getting; well, always loved the psychodelics I mean art... hahaha

the reflections and the texture on the mud are very interesting mate. maybe some glow around the moon could work nicely too?

Greetings,

Latest WIP. This may be it; or at least very close, one can only shine a cesspool so far. I adjusted the placement and spacing for the characters, which is driven to some extent by the eye-level of the original work and attempted to place them within a somewhat logical perspective space. Another consideration for the composition is to follow the axioms that I perceive in Frezetta’s work such as the triangle and a rather centralized composition. The X-mas palm trees now have a touch of Frezetta’s style while hopefully providing a more Elvis look to this piece and maybe even giving a faint smile to Dr. Suess. The palm-lights also resemble eyes, or maybe I have been looking at this too long.

If the Borg captured these hero’s what would they say:

Elvis Borg - You ain’t nothing but assimilated, crying all the time.

Plumber Borg - We are bored resistance is futile.

Frezetta Borg – Release the fantasy art objects to absorb the humanoids!

Hi Ralph! I really like all the new details in the pond and how the reflections are working very nice! almust there, The jacket I will sugest to guive some leather texture on it, I like alot the palms and the texture ! They complement very good all the envioramnet and the concept mood, really great! and the lights, they do seem eyes if you look at shapes closely! haha! I think its a great element, in to let some imagination or mistery behind the art, so keep them ! Fantastic upgrade! keep that energy its looking really kool!

Greetings Axel,

Thank you once more for the kind words and comments. I would normally paint leather textures and maybe use a photo texture. But I am striving to keep this a Frezetta like painterly work (expect for the lights). So I have not used any textures, or 3d elements.

Refinements

Hi Axel,

With fresh eyes I give the leather jacket a second look...OK your right (of course) about the texture. I thought at first you meant a super detailed effect. But it does still need more refinement in general to look more like leather.

Thanks again,
