Hehe... I thought I recognized your color scheme ^^. Nice composition as always. Looking forward to it. The designs are really cool, especially that big structure. (wait... is it a structure or giant alien?) ^^

Thanks for your suggestion on my thread! ^^

This is coming along well! I have a slight problem with the composition but that might clear up as your work progresses.

At the moment I'm having trouble identifying the focus of the piece, and also the left-hand side seems empty and may benefit from being cropped just to the left of the left-most human.

Looking good though, I'll be keeping an eye on it!

Work In Progress: Uplift



Thanks for the comments and critiques everyone. greatly appreciated..

Have dropped some photographic texture into the mix and came up with an interesting result..

Threw in a Harrier Hawk too. only because we had one land on our front lawn today (apparently a rare treat) and became inspired :)

Good night!

Marley

Maciej

Hey awesome of you to visit, i've seen your name around for sometime..maybe you were in EON?

Really nice of you to come and visit, i totally appreciate the kind words

PAUL

hehe, yea, sorry bout the DWIII issue..I have infact done alot of work on my character, but i hit a brick wall with my health..DOING THIS PIECE has been amazingly therapeutic..Emotionally, this is my best piece in a long time, and i'd just done the NVidia competition, and they don't hold a candle to whats being done here....I suppose all i learnt from the hard work from those pieces, have helped me here.

Thanks for dropping by, Paul

Good luck to you too!

Marley

Sweet image, you have really captured the alien atmosphere very well! Great misty palette.

Work In Progress: A star per Generation



driving it all home now..still undecided as to how the right hand side should be dealt with. but moving mr green over that area opened up a hole in the middle of the image, so that was no solution. (i realize he is a bit wooden)..

Have learnt a lesson or three..all you can ask for :D
