hey brian, yeah oshiroii seems to be napping – life got in the way no doubt.
Your piece has become quite surreal. Reminds me of some collage work I’ve seen from the early 70s. Not a bad thing, particularly since you have a traditional painting background, right?
I think the surrealism is due to the 1-point perspective. The buildings angle towards the center, as does the steps the singer is standing on, causing the singer to look almost as big as the buildings. In fact, are they? I haven’t read all your descriptions but shouldn’t the singer be half the height of one of your building’s windows? If you do end up shrinking him down, then you would have to change the camera angle to get him back to the filling the frame as he does now, and then the scene might look more “real”. The ship and ther space art also look too big.
On the other hand, you could also manipulate the perspective even more to make it more surreal by rendering all the objects separately, compositing in photoshop or whatever and manipulating their scale more.
What about the singer’s adoring audience?
And what’s a “fokker”?
