This is pure evil. Purple juices pouring from the base of the sinister pyramid... Or not at all? Curious what was your 'background concept' behind this. The walkthrough shows you had a totally different idea at the beginning, but this one really is better. Are the little people in the lower-right corner some worshippers, or...?
And as usual, colors and lighting are just incredulous
well - I don't know. I almost never paint something with one very clear concept in mind, but I actually have differents and let me and the viewers get their own story from it. I find it much more interesting and fun than having only one boring story.
maybe those are Pyramids of evil and are releasing a fluid in the river that's going to spread and making do evil things to people who drink the water, or maybe the fluid is some sort of miracolous liquid that will let vegetation come back and make life happen in that environment. I just wrote these two sentences to show you that there are so many stories you can create by just focusing on only one single element of the painting, that if you mix them all you will always find a new interesting and fun story to imagine.
I really like this kind of art, than the one in which only one story is told..
woah, this popped out at me the second i saw it on the little preview in my notifications. it's gorgeous. the strong reds hint at an unhospitable, hellish environment but the bright greens and blues point towards something else. all great, and that's without even taking a peek at the sky, which is beautifully chaotic.
Non va la profondità, in quanto a primo acchitto la regione del ponte di roccia sembra essere sullo stesso piano della pianura su cui è poggiata la piramide in primo piano; la luce è troppo accentuata nella pianura sotto il ponte rispetto al resto; mi piacciono molto i colori e il tuo stile come al solito.
non pensi possa essere un po' voluta questa estremizzazione delle forme e la confusione che ne deriva? guardati in giro, niente ha proporzioni adeguate; la grande piramide, le persone molto piccole, le rocce, le dimensioni della stella che illumina e la potenza dei riflessi.. potrei continuare per parecchio!
sì sì, ma alla fine a me piace che nell'arte le persone vedono pregi e difetti in base al proprio punto di vista, io non voglio mai imporre niente ed è per questo che lascio sempre titoli vaghi e non descrivo mai cosa c'è 'concettualmente' dietro al lavoro, preferisco che ognuno veda quel che vuole vedere e se lo goda in pace, senza imposizioni dall'artista!
hey! thanks a lot! I'm using a Wacom Intuos4, but I've just bought it a few months ago, before I used to paint with a Wacom Bamboo fun, which is way more affordable and still a really great piece of hardware. I've done most of my paintings with it. If you're interested in a graphic tablet and are not intended to spend a fortune, go for that one.

Oh wow, I don't think I'd be able to afford that one yet :3 i've been looking at it though. AH yeah, I've been interested in the Bamboo Fun. Thank you for the information! Could I also ask what software you use for it? Photoshop? Art rage? I just really wanna do my research first to see whats best. thank you!
it would make little sense for you to buy an intuos now anyway.. the differences between the intuos and the bamboo are not that much, the pressures levels and the overall quality of the hardware is not something you could sense the differences if you're just a beginners, if you can't fully express the limits of a bamboo then there is no point in buying something more expensive that wouldn't make the difference. At leasts, this is the same kind of advice I got years ago when I asked the same questions you're asking me now!
Anyway, Photoshop cs3! If you have some knowledge of traditional painting, then maybe Art rage might be better for you, I don't know.. they simulate better the tradional feeling of painting. Instead, if you're like me (and with this I mean that I have never pick up a real brush nor have never painted on a real canvas), then it doesn't really make the difference.. The tools are not the things that are going to make your artworks look better, it's your mind!
You can download for free the test-version of the two softwares, see which one you feel more confortable with! Hope this helps!
