Nice start, Marley, I'm particularly liking posts #7 and #10 - #7 for the impression of scale and #10 for the atmosphere. If I had to choose I'd go for #10 so far but as you say, plenty of time! Look forward to seeing more

Work In Progress: Upscend



just a little more down the track, accept i was suddenly reminded of one of my favourite novels.."Hothouse" by Brian Adliss..That book has engaged my imagination like no other...anyways, reference to one of the skyscraper trees that had human tribes attached by a vine from the head to the top of this really giant of a tree (i think it stood a mile high)One of the lil blokes kept was really funny..in anycase, thats it for the night..nearly 2am here

Hey simon, cheers for visiting..i see why you like the images and thank you for explaining your reasons.

For post #10 i just felt a good sense of been there done that..Not only by me, but by probably 90% of all budding sci-fi artists, or Jim Burns fans..Yea i need to feel that i am treading new ground these days, if only to just keep my interest..Im really liking where i'm of to with "Upscend" now ..

Work In Progress: uplift my aunties cousins sisters uncle



worked a little more, plus have decided to play around with colour..

I was worried that some of the colours were going to be flat..a natural side effect of multiplying colours but that seemed minimal even at this early stage, so colouring in general I should not think will be an issue..thank gosh

Wonderful progress. I like the sense of scale and alien look about the scene. The fibrous look about the large figures is both intriguing and believable. I notice the composition is very much more concentrated on the right side of the frame than the left (I keep wanting to pan the 'camera' to the right a little bit) but as this is only an early WIP then I'm guessing that subtleties like that have plenty of time to be sorted out.

Excellent updates

Work In Progress: uplift my aunties left foot



Not final colours by any means but having a heap of fun, lead to some interesting results for sure..Perhaps a little to much dancing colours pulling the eye out of the central focus..

in any case, getting there and thats the main thing

Cool

Holy hell, COMMENTS :O hehehehe

MARK yea i know what you mean, maybe a canvas extension may be in order here, well see. I did play with more colours and seems to have expanded the eyes journey left a little more.

Glad you liek my work, Thank you, its a relief to hear feedback

MARKUS

Awesome, glad you appreciate my linework, mate..its fairly ambiguos in the early stages and leaves its interpretation wide open..Thats my favourite way to work, being non focused.

Thank you

Mark and Markus...

Marley

Hello Marley. Very Ethereal work you have going on. Your work reminds me of a tonalist painter. All mood and lighting. Very unique style. Can't wait to see more.
