[edit: I found out something went terribly wrong with the colors here, when I checked this piece on a different monitor. Colors and contrast should be fixed now.]


This time a personal piece, nothing original or exiting. Just very calm and nice to look at, that's how I wanted it. It feels good to create something without any pressure: "I... muuust... do... something... original...!"
I think it's mostly inspired of my own piece "The Islander" which I uploaded back in 2007: [link]

Actually I really enjoyed working on this one, until I
a) accidentally closed the file without saving -_-'
b) restarted it from scratch, saved it, and then found out the psd file is damaged. -___-'''
Luckily I saved this small jpg image on the day before, ha!

There's no need to give critique on this one, since I can't edit this piece anyways, especially no critique on the clouds, they are exactly how I wanted them to be. :)


Everything was done in PS with a Wacom Tablet. I used several stocks from sxc.hu and two stocks from *AlbaStock [link] [link]
The planet is mine.


This is my entry for the "freedom-contest": [link]

There's no need to give critique on this one, since I can't edit this piece anyways -- Why do you public it here and don't want critique?... I just mean you can or can't edit your own works is your business, people give critique don't always expect you have to edit or modify anything afterward~ The choice is yours.

and what does it matter to you?
There are plenty of reasons to post a work here, you might wanna ask the people who disable their comments.

Yes, no matter to me. Just curious a bit 'coz seem you especially declined critique in this work (not your other ones). A reason just about uneditable problem? Anyway, u're right, I shouldn't ask, doesn't make any better. Peace.

it's sad that yacht is cropped. i understand your intention to simulate the randomness of a real photo by this act, but still smthng's wrong with the yacht fragment ;)
The whole impression is fantastic! :omg:

thank you, I planned to place the yacht somewhere in the middle, but it just didn't look right to me... ;(

i think i understand another thing very signature of you - the gradient and colour tone of your works all have a fairly abstract mood to them.

dankeschön :)
Naja, normalerweise arbeite ich sehr groß (3000-4000 pixel), beim Verkleinern+Scharfzeichnen kommt das dann von alleine.
