Grand Space Opera 2D Entry: Fahrija Velic


I think you should change your name to Superman! :scream: It amazes me how you got to this fantastic piece even after your accident! I agree with Nathaniel about the horizon line, but I do know how dificult it is to convey the idea of a horison without drawing the line (shapeless as my nebula was, it did had an “horizon”). Anyway, I wouldn’t worry too much, cause the perspective of the building clearly show where it is, and it’s just a matter of blurring it. I personally would add some sort of tropical storm in the background, cause in that type of climates it’s quite often to have a sunny day “above you” while it rains a few kilometers away.


Fatastic work. Glad I got to see this one develop. Great work Fahrija! Good luck in the voting!


It sure is sometging fresh, original in this challenge… not just the colors wich I love the most, but also the design of spaceships and architecture. I was really amazed with every ur update. From the sketches on, I knew that something big and awesome will come. And my expectations were fulfilled. Congratulations once again for ur piece, and wish u best of luck at voting process! :slight_smile: See u in next challenge i hope…


thanks for reply. I know what you mean :slight_smile: - the last days were quite taxing and stress. Hope to see you again in the next challenge.

Many thanks for your great posts buddies :thumbsup:
In terms of the comunity-award > I´m surpised if you believe or not :bowdown:I still can´t
believe. Sometimes it took me much more time to find the right words when writing posts
rather than painting a scetch. [the online-dictionary always very close to me :slight_smile: > without
it I would have surrender after a week] Thanks again.


 Hey squibbit - you know how to make people smile :thumbsup:
       Hi ken - I thought the same vice versa but it´s like mike said. There is allways a next
     time.  Thank you both.
      Thank you Dimi and send my regards to all the beautiful greek women :)
      Cliff - you´re welcome. :) Meet you in the next one. 
      Hey Tommy - your image is a killer - thats why it is at this point where it is now. :)
     great work and congrats again. There are so many works which deserved hm. I´m very
     happy not to be the decision maker > It would have broke my neck :). 
     I just can repeat - It was an adventure and a pleasure to be an eyewitness of your
     incredible 20hr-painting-marathon. I wouldn´t believe if I hadn´t watched it myself. 
      hey paul back in town! Thanks for your kind words - I would only had be to pleased to see
     your version of the composition. Meet you next time maybe on the same area.
      Monsit, many thanks. I have to give back compliments your whole work is true inspiration.
     Congrats again. see you in the painter/photoshop section.

      [b]my little epilogue[/b]
      Very special thanks to Michael (nuclearman) - your comments were more than just helpfull.
     And I´m sure your finished picture would have changed the current ranking in the top 7. 

      Also many thanks to Gerado - thanks for support

      Additional thanks to the 3d people who dropped into my thread very often as I recognized.
      And last but not least I would like to quote a post-reply I´ve read during the challenge
     which I very much liked . 
    See you around in this community 
    - fahrija
