Oh. My. God.
I think I left my desk once in the last six hours.



I put a lot of work into this one, spent a lot more time on fine tuning, fixing all the small mistakes. I am really happy with how it came out. I've been having a lot more inspiration lately, which is weird but good.

This piece also has a HEAVY personal meaning, but I cant tell you why, :P

so yea....
i hope you all enjoy it as much as I do, and critique is always welcome. :D

Via: the way or path in latin


EDIT - 4/23/09 I fucking love all of you. Especially Baz and taenaron. You guys are the essence of awesome. Thank you so much. Unexpected glory.

Very Innovative Art by =DemosthenesVoice here. The combination of real elements with the fictional/fantasy aspects is awesome. Make sure to check out his very vibrant gallery! ( Suggested by Baz135 and Featured by taenaron )

I like your works so much, and usually I would rate them with maximum points for Vision either. However, I have one little problem with this one. For me, that small planet on the left is kinda in the way. When I released my imagination and wanted to follow the path, I stopped on each star the rod marked, but fifth I always bumped into that planet. Maybe you should blur it or make it smaller. I know you are the master of planets, but this should talk about the terrain and much more about the path.

The concept and the techniques you use are wonderful however, and I bow before you for sitting 6 hours just to finish one picture. I could never do it :)
What do you think?

Very nice - and I like the unique take on the "Star Traveler". This guy doesn't need a spaceship, it looks like. He's just going to GO :D!

This has to be the most unique piece of space art I've ever seen. It is a welcome breath of fresh air from the normal space-scapes. Truly unique.

I love this piece....At first I thought it was god making the universe or something at first glances but I like the actuall meaning you meant.
It's wonderfully made.
However....That planet for me in the top left ruins it for me I'm sorry to say.
It looks more like a marble in the sky which is...odd.
Either way I love it :)

Pretty damned sweet, I really like the concept, shines through as something new. My only real crit being that I wish the resurgere stock you used was blended in a little better (I recognised it very quickly).

Seriously impressive work though.
