Work In Progress: More work on the background


Sorry uploaded the wrong image - can I somehow delete it?

I've changed from "Landscape" to "Portrait" and done more work on the background as you can see.

Looking very very good. I am envious of your background and excellent eye for colour.

Thank you! As for my sense for colour - it's based mostly on intuition.

Best wishes.


Thank you KU2GUN! I don't think that I have a style as such yet - I still have so much to learn and to develop my skills. I wasn't happy with the mountains myself as a matter of fact - but it's all work in progress. The aspect ratio is also bothering me still.

Cheers,

Dimitri.

Work In Progress: More work on the Background



I wanted to add something alien to the landscape as well as a bit of sharpness. So this is what it looks like.

Nice landscape, coming along well. I'll be interested to see how the characters fit in there. Keep up the good work!

I like to new additions. They give the eye something to focus on, but I suppose you will have to becareful where you place the figures to keep the composition balanced.

Work In Progress: Working on the Foreground



Started the work on the foreground. There's still lots of work and corrections to do but you can see where I'm heading now.

Cool

Gorgeous ethereal work already.. the deep purples reds/browns etc are my favourites in any palette.

as a point of interest..if at any time you find there is too much going on, I wonder if blurring the background would help to draw attention to your characters..I remember seeing the artwork for the landscape develop earlier and had this thought back then..In anycase seems to be going swell so far.

Thanks for your comment Marley! Talking about ethereal - your work is really ethereal - very original and fascinating style you have! You should add the one with the bird and fish to your portfolio - it looks great.



As for my painting - I've decided that less is more - so to say. I'll not include the other aliens into the painting - I feel that it would be overloaded if I would. Maybe I should call it something like "Contact" or "New friend" or whatever... the thought behind it being that accidentally two explorers from different civilisations meet on an alien planet for the first time.


Cheers,

Dimitri.
