edit - someone pointed out in the comments that this piece looks a lot like eric fortune's beautiful piece 'beyond the past' - www.ericfortune.com/plugins/p2… . this is no coincidence, i am hugely inspired by his work and that piece in particular! i didn't credit him or this specific piece in the original description, because i didn't realize the similarity until someone pointed it out. i then edited my description to say "very influenced by the wonderful and dream-like work of eric fortune" but i'm now updating with the link to the specific piece included - please check out eric fortune's work, it's amazing! www.ericfortune.com/
worked on this on and off over the course of three weeks.. probably spent a good 15 hours doing it. drawn in photoshop CS3 with an intuos3 tablet. textures from cgtextures.com , tips on how to use textures can be found here - kitton.deviantart.com/art/tips… and for other tips check out my f.a.q - loish.deviantart.com/journal/6…
Nice, but it looks way too much like Eric Fortune’s “Beyond The Past”. Borrowing concepts is fine but you went as far as using almost the exact same pose. Same goes for your “Surfaces” piece – both this and that piece are beautiful but you “borrowed” way too much from Eric Fortune without even mentioning him in the description.
It make me wan to paint and discover what talents lie under my skin, I thank you can't wait for more of your excellent work.
