Final Image: A Star for Genrations



99.9 percent complete.

I'll spend sometime conjuring a story perhaps

and i may aswell call it final image, because i only plan a little work for the little characters, and thats it.

Spiritually fantastic journey, i learnt heaps, in technique and puzzle solving..

on an interaction level, i believe I found 'EON' more satisfying..MIND YOU i did join in the last half of the comp and the wheels were well and truly in motion!. and of course that means more people out and about :D..

in anycase

wishing all the best of luck for finishing!

Marley

Final Image: A Star for Generations FINAL



DONE, im done..all good.

The gist of it all..The light structure in the middle is representative of the Original Alien species that started it all (Progenators)..

And how they have cast a long Light (or shadow) across the many generations of Aliens. Their Knowledge, the very basis of many species existence....

Now the human aspect is not entirely accurate to the novels..The relation of humans (or human like) here was inspired by Brian Aldiss's "HotHouse" my most enjoyed reading experience i have ever had!!.

A reference to the very tall trees with human tribes attached to them

In essence there is a psychic attachment from the little figures to the main Alien..

more of a 'mythological' approach to the illustration, than actual depiction

And that was my mode of thinking when illustrating this.

Take care everyone

Marley

Wow! Finished already! That's amazing. Well done! I love the dreamy feel about this illustration - it's like a structure made of pure light and energy. Congratulations buddy, and good luck

Nice colors and design Marley. It sucks that I an just now visiting your thread now(I think). i still do think that you can further push values to make this image pop even more. I've seen your previous works and this is your comfort zone, and I think I'm fine with that. I amazed with your handle of colors the most though.

man u work fast!


the light and colour is as usual unique and fantastic...i'm not so hot on terms and theory but what would it look like with a bit more contrast (if that is the right term)?

Thanks to Beelow and Paul, i opened the file up and played around with different adjustment layers. Such as contrast, levels, saturation, curves etc.

It has made the colours more natural..a semms to have swallowed the middle up a little so will have to do more work..but in no way is this an issue with 41 days to go :P.

the newest version with the layers tweaked looks the best by far...the colors are much better

Amazing colours and lighting! I think the design is great as well, the space has an epic feel to it, an alien landscape that is beyond the understanding of humans.

NMCELMURY


ACE mate thank you so much for dropping by and commenting..

BEELOW
Hey the fact hat you visited anyways is appreciated..its really very early days so you would not ordinarily expect someone to be finished..unless your renowned for it and your name starts with "baron" hehe..hey your crit was valuable, you are right that my art seems to be undercooked in the contrast department..I completely forgot about post work with adjustment layers and such, so took your advice seriously..

Thanks for very dropping by..and leaving a pretty useful and complimentary comment

BLACHART67


PAUL, spot on the money!!..yea its something that beelow picked up on aswell, and have since done adjustments which seem to work for the better ..thanks so much for the support!

CYBERONE

I am so glad you think so, thank you for the feedback..certainly appreciated

ALEXICHABANE
Extremely Flattering Comment haha..wow thank you so much..your description helps me because you never are quite sure what people will be seeing..

cheers mate and have a good day

GAEASHERALD

cheer mate, when i was doing the concepts earlier on, i could not help but think i was treading old ground..I am not worried about winning, i was more concerned about producing something that people weren't quite so familiar with, and giving people a unique journey..so in my mind, with all the comments i 've been getting it seems my mission was a success.

cheers and good luck with your beautiful entry also!!.

SERGIO TOSTA

I am really pleased, you got enjoyment out of the piece, thank you for taking the time to let me know!!.

Thanks once again to everyone, i shal now lie down and rest..

take care and best of luck to all.

Marley
