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.

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

The concept is great!
Love the idea of a 'graveyard for gods'.

My only thing with the picture is the bird. Doesn't really fit in it for me.

Other than that, Great picture and execution! :)

I do agree with the general consensus that the lighting could stand to be a little more consistant. Doing that, in turn, would help make the birds and statues a more seamless part of the picture.
Overall, I like the idea, and the background with the planets is phenominal!

My friend, you have out done yourself. Great picture, great concept. I have to ask though; is this in any way inspired by the Strange Planet from the film La Planete Sauvage?

alright, so:
1. really cool concept
2. love the darker colors used for the space part
3. the lighting has issues in this piece. the statues are each lit differently, same with the bird, the water and hills :P
4. the perspective on the statues is weird. the main one seems like it's falling forward, while a few others seem to be falling backward. dunno if it's intentional or not..

nice job though mate :D

The sky is beautiful. As is the whole ambiance of the picture. Perfect color choice.

Though, I personally would like it better without the statues and bird.

But overall, awesomeness.

Very interesting and unique concept, really very cool. :thumbsup:

One thing I noticed is some of the statues are varrying. The main statue in the middle is lit from the top and is bright. The one of to the right of it is dim and barely any light on it at all. Also to me the bird just seems a little outa' place. I am really not sure why. But the planets are spectacular. :love:

Overall very nice job. Definatly a good idea. Keep up the great and inspiration work mate.


P.S. You wouldn't mind stopping by a wannabe space artists page and give him a little C&C on his pieces would ya?

Nice job mate. See ya around. :wave:
