are it lights? or caves? what is the source of the lights?

Noratos's avatar

These are orbs of light. I wasn't all that good at making orbs back then.

I have worked on my technique quite a bit.

you are a very serene spirit in a chaotic world. all your work has a timeless paradasical charm to them. a serene world that is there lucky for those who found it. at first the orbs made me scared a bit, thinking it are portals or loops, but now i see it are kindred spirits or orbs

I visited your gallery for a bit. Sadly I am not really qualified to have an opinion of fractal art and such. It's a bit too abstract for my taste. No offense intended.

As a response to my critique yesterday, you asked me to take a look at this painting as well! I am happy to oblige, so here I am!

I think this is a beautiful, atmospheric painting. You blended the pastels very nicely here! I like that you didn’t blend everything, but left things like highlights and shadows here and there unblended. It makes it more realistic, as things would look in the real world as well. I really like the contrast between the blue and yellow lights here. I really like the idea that the gloom is glowing, it adds to the atmosphere, it makes me feel almost melancholic. Again here, I like that you left out details on the figures. The humans are once again open to our interpretation, I definitely think that is a strength of yours! Again, you did a wonderful job! Keep it up my dear!

Thanks a lot for the detailed critique. As I said, this piece is very important to me and the special someone I made it for. It's really nice to know it is considered beautiful by someone like you.

If you'd like to share it around the community to give it some more exposure that would be very welcome as well.

Thanks for the praise! In my eyes your art is on a wholly different level than mine.

Impressing you with my art means a lot to me.
