Summer Paradise by Chromattix Summer Paradise by Chromattix
Looks like something sweet, or fruity :lick: Either way I wanted this to to be one inviting sunset scene and I quite loved the colour combination for this year's one. This is the seventh annual artwork I've made of this kind, all part of my yearly birthday submissions and I managed to still be on time again. Talk about punctuality (or not having a life :paranoid:) It was hard to think of a title, so I took one from a song I currently like which fits the mood perfectly 8-)

Created with Vue and Photoshop as I often do. I originally had a very purple colour scheme in mind for this with only trace amounts of blue and pink involved. It looked pretty cool but then after some radical changes and experimentation with the colours I ended up with this which was very different yet more fitting to the bright, warm sunset mood I wanted. I also wanted somewhat a minimalistic approach which I tend to prefer for island type scenery relax:

Oh I love the colors! For me there is a sense of still movement and unavoidable change here.

Yea no problem. This is so serene and tranquil but I feel that any second now it will turn into Valerian and the city of a thousand planets action drama. Good work indeed.

Would you mind if I use this as part of a book cover on Wattpad? I'll credit you of course. :) It's really amazing by the way!

I might need to know what Wattpad is first, but to avoid getting your hopes up I rarely lend out my work for free depending on the intended use.

Ahhh, sure. Wattpad is basically like DeviantArt, but with books. It's okay if you'd rather me not use it, I completely understand why you say that. Thanks anyway. :)

Wow, this one just insists that you look at it!....love the composition, the texture of the water and the vibrant colors, especially where the orange and blue of the sky compliment one another.....

Ikr, like you need to exploit every day of summer doing something. And then, at the end, you just feel like you've done nothing important..

Hmm, this is where it gets tricky, videogames are often not intended to be published but may end up being so later down the line. I suppose if you can commit to that, or at least find a replacement image if you do publish it later then I see no harm. Jut beware of sharing it with friends though, you may not publish t, but they might ;)

Have I mentioned lately how much joy your work brings me? I love scenes like this so much. Your art is just so good. I hope I'm able to create stuff like this some day. Thank you for creating and sharing everything you do with us. I also hope life is being kind. Having a really good morning and this just added to it. ^_^

I don't. It tales so long to make these that even if sped up you'd be watching for hours. I've only done a small animation of one of my other illustrations here
Platinum Wind: progression by priteeboy But being a character drawing, the process there was very different to this artwork here :hmm:
