The perspective looks a little wonky to me. Based on the background depth and the placement of the aliens "legs," the human appears to be on his "tippy-toes."

Pegahoul - Thanks, Peter! I think it couldn't be otherwise, since the sun is behind the "scene".

TMArtist - Thanks, Anthony! Actually it's not Arnold - it's my face, you could say it's a selfportrait

Dragneye - Thanks Drew! Purple is a strong colour

killer-instinct93 - Thank you Kevin, you're absolutely right - that's definately one of the issues I'll have to work on.

this has become a solid piece of of artwork now, dimitrij..perhaps now there needs to be a slight hint of rock texture just underneath the aliens left most and top leg..naturally of lighter contrast..just enough revealed as if sand has lightly covered it. if done rightly it could help out with perspective aswell..

anyhow, this i slooking gorgeous!!

Hi dimitrij, I was reading some of the other comments and it got me thinking on what you could do to fix the little problems with the least amount of changes. As I see it there are two small issues (1) the overlaping legs (2) the perspective of the shadow on the human side. To fix the perspective around the human and alien legs you could extend the alien leg so that his limb touches down near the far right side (using the hinge dynamic you have already in place) this will allow you to alter the shape of the human feet to get a better placement. The other thing you could do is angle the shadow by about 30% right for the human legs, this will help the perspective of the whole image I think. I can think of a couple of other touches you could add but they're not important at this stage. Keep it up, it's coming together really well!

Work In Progress: Almost done...



There's still some refining to do, but on the whole it's very close to being finished, I guess...

Thanks a lot for you comments, Donglu-LittleFish It's always a pleasure to get such positive feedback.

With each piece I get a better grip on Corel Painter and how to use it better, but you could say that I'm still at the beginning.

All the best and good luck in the contest!!

Dimitrij.

Klasse Farben, vor allem der Himmel ist genial!

Der Anzug des Menschen wirkt noch ein wenig platt, aber ansonsten fällt einem nur schwer was ein was man noch besser machen könnte!

Thanks

Pearlyking: Thanks mate! I'll probably let it rest for a day and then do some finishing touches.

Huggy: Hallo Gregor! Freut mich, dass Dir das Bild gefällt! Danke für den Tip mit dem Anzug - da ist wirklich was dran Ich werde das Bild erstmal ein wenig ruhen lassen und dann wieder rangehen und die letzten Details herausarbeiten.

nwiz25: Thank you, Neville! I'm glad you like my painting

LightSovereign: Thanks a lot, Marley! I really apreciate it.

I'll give it a little rest for now (had a lot of work today, too tired to work on the painting).

Thanks everyone - this contest is a great experience!!
