Wow... that is exeptionally well done. The details are amazing, and I love how the colors are all so soft, and go together so well.
And very interesting concept, too. I love the entire thing. Good work :)

You're quite welcome. Your entire gallery is wonderful... really impressed me. You've got such skills in digital painting... something I should really work on.
Hmm.. I've noticed that about more.. muted colour, as well. I personally love the look of it. And in my oppinion it's always best to just go with what you like, and then see what others might think of the result.

I almost thought you vanished, I haven't seen you lovely work in a while, I love the colors in this reminds me of moon mist icecream o.O but honestly the soft pastels are so nice!

yea thanks, I have slowed down considerably, as i have lost a great deal of interest in painting at the moment. Unless i can fnd a way to paint faster for myself, 55hrs is too draining.

Thanks very much Digiavalon, I'm really glad you like it :D.

This is very interesting. Ever since I discovered your work I've been very intrigued. The shapes and structures you use are somehow similar to the ones I draw or paint -- those semi-organic landscape forms -- and in this piece description the notion of a living landscape is somehow .. trigerring. Very, very good. And I think it would be very interesting if you keep it up towards that direction.

Choice, thanks very much eilidh. Yea i find Organic structures semi/fully, something i focus on in narrating the story. It seems only a few people can actually read that story, or find the interest in them.

Owell i'm glad something triggered in you whilst you viewed this ^^. Thats great thanks for letting me know!.

Have a good one Eilidh

Hey thanks rachel, i'd thought you'd like the bigger version. Question?, did this message just pop through now?. i submitted on the same night i did to epilogue (over a week back).

Still thanks very much for the wishes for expose, you too!.

You mean did the picture just show up now? No, i think it showed up a week ago, i am really bad at commenting on art in my watch list. It sometimes takes me even longer than a week. I am lame like that ;)

'tis great! continuing the "organic-ness" of your paintings. the spotlight-ish light coming from the thing on the right

The rainbow colors are amazing in this Marley.
It is a bit as if you mixed some of Antifans influence with your own very original style.
Everything flows so wonderful - great concept :)

I was really inspired by Antifan (don't tell him :P) and halo2's cinematic appeal. Before i started, i sat down and just stared at gary's nimbus image. Shit, i was jealous. i felt as if i had to at least challenge myself to reach his level of awesomeness. so thats what this piece is about. trying to set a technical standard for myself. And boy did i learn heaps :nod:.

does that sound like cheese?

Thanks very much Kyena

No it's not cheesy at all - I think you did indeed a great heap - this looks more realistic then your other pieces. I really love both of your "styles".

Gorgeous. Your architectural designs never cease to impress me. For an aspiring author your works certainly set my imagination in gear. Nice job, and as always, I love the use of color *_* ::a color addict::

Smashing work Marley hope you go really well in that competition thing with it... just one thing tho... your name, date and copyright is perhaps just a touch too big in the bottom left corner and it detracts just a bit from the rest of the work.
Just mentioning this cos it was the first thing I noticed when I looked at the full view.

thraxllisyliaHobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks mate ;). Yes i know what you mean about the siggy, I put this up blatantly on my larger works now as i have had my art stolen in the past, so I'm in a once bitten twice shy situation where i'm not so worried about it's uglyness ;). hehehe

Thanks very much Matt, much appreciated!.
