It's beautiful, i especially like the sky - i can almost feel the wind . One question, though: Why square format ? IMO a widescreen composition would fit the vast space you got there.

rawwad - Thanks, happy you like it! Good luck to you too

azazel - Cheers Not sure why I went for this format, to be honest. Letterbox format would certainly be more panoramic but I'm not sure it would manage to convey the depth and the scale of the sky. Maybe, though.

Goro - Ha, I'll slow down when I'm done To be honest I've only spent about 6 hrs on it in total. I'm using Painter oils which are so good to use they almost paint themselves. Thanks for the encouragement!

LightSovereign - Heh, I just struck lucky, really. Some paintings are easy and some are fiendish; I'm just lucky I came up with an easy one when everyone's looking Thanks for dropping by, Marley!

You are an holy terror, Baron! One turns his head a moment and you're already half-way through the challenge.

Really lovely athmosphere, light and colors, the aliens remind me of some very elaborate living kites, every child's dream...

Work In Progress: Another swift splatter

Removed the beast on the left, it looked like a flying turd. Done the basic detailing on the main beast and the top planet.

It reminds me of Patrick Woodroofe.
Hats off to you.
The only chance you don't have is the one you don't take.

Your work is flawless Baron. I think that the background aliens could be a bit more washed down, so as to enhance the one in the front. That's it, the only crit I could come up with.

I love how the one on the top left seems to be under a shadow casted by a cloud high above. Great artists know what happens inside and outside the frame of their pictures.
Good job.
