Gates to Sikri by fmacmanus Gates to Sikri by fmacmanus
Our pilot crashlands on an alien planet, coming out of a narrow corridor and beholds this sight.
The people of Sikri take him in and show him their wondrous planet. What I was trying to depict is a mysterious wonder, something friendly but also aggressive.
The dangers of this area  - similar to its beauty- are abundant but unknown.

Final version of this one.
More exploration coming though! The interior will be designed too!

I quite like the weather in this alien planet. The colors make it feel like both air and underwater, at least to me. The tower-like structure looks a bit too threatening, though. Maybe there could be some alien flowers over the entrance and a small yard of sorts to make it appear more welcoming. It's a delicate balance between beautiful and creepy, so no biggie.

This is truly gorgeous.  Just looking at it sucks me in, the colors are otherworldly but natural.  The whole piece is just immersive and the more you  look it the more your eyes move around the piece sucking into the detail.  Amazing!
