I really like this piece. I think you showed another example of something surreal and your work really pulled me in to what you were trying to portray. The bird kind of gives things a bit of a native American feel as well. Your vision is excellent and your originality is above average. I think your technique was effective as well but your impact was better. Overall, excellent work. I was really impressed by everything here. I love your work of colors too. In a way it is almost as if the space meets the earth. The statues in the background are a bit hard to see, but that's the only thing that makes me wonder about this piece. I'd be curious to see what expression the statues have.
What do you think?

The general idea is pretty epic, but I'll be cruel and say those statues and birds don't fit at all, it's as if they were pasted in as is with just some colour and brightness adjustements :p I would try digitally painting them over more to make them fit in with the lighting scenario of the scene, which seems darker than a normal sunny day on Earth, also with the sun being more closer to the backs of the statues (judging by the lighting on the planets) while the statues are very well-lit from a sun that seems to be directly overhead (midday) :sun:

Still, I think it's a pretty cool concept, a rather grand and epic scene :worship:

I think that to say the bird doesn't fit is unfair. There are many statues of gods, or symbols of gods, from various religions, and I think the bird fits well with a lot of the more so-called "primitive" beliefs. Many people still worship nature, or animals, and often these shamanic and animistic spiritual beliefs are very unorganized (compared to other religious beliefs). The bird fits most of these as a symbol, as it is an animal that rides the wind, soaring through the heavens, looking down upon the earth below.

its pretty neat with the statues, but I bet even without them this would look wonderful.

mmn, like the top half a lot more than the bottom. the clouds are beautiful, they really suit your oversharpened style, but the bottom isnt blended well enough.

thanks buddy :D

Yeah I think the statues in the BG should be more blended in with the clouds.
