The Sign


This is a Sunday new matte painting, I have pretty much a mountain moment in my works, maybe due to winter coming soon. Blue is definitely my favorite colors and did not want to much color variation in this one, monochromatic is good sometimes as well!!!

Mountain textures from my own stock and lots of painting.

Planet from Nasa stock.

Spaceships fully painted!!

Thanks for your comments and favs

So, the good first. You have really captured an evocative and imaginative scene here that gets the gears in one's head spinning away with happy abandon. The entire composition tells one of several stories, from stories of hope and rejuvenation, to apocalyptic world endings to something as mundane as, just off the top of me head, activating some kind of beacon to get somewhere else. It hits all the right notes in that regard, which is just awesome for a single image like this.

As for what could be improved, there's not a lot I can say but the biggest one is that our sense of scale is skewed by the ships. Their size in comparison to the mountains just seems a little off. It's not major but just enough to make me question size difference.

Overall, an excellent piece of work. Very well done <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/>
