Lurid Skies by GlacierDragon Lurid Skies by GlacierDragon
Last one for today.
Started as a speedpaint back in December 2012 or thereabouts, got bored and neglected it for over a year then finished it a couple of weeks ago and procrastinated on uploading it, again.
Inspired by Rodney Matthews' amazing artwork and also listening to Shpongle because fuckyeah mushrooms.
I quite like the colours and rendering going on in the foreground but then when it came to the background I was just like lolwut I'll just do monochrome and then I didn't know what to do to make it look better anyway so just left it as it is because mehderp.
Yay.

I love the atmosphere in this! The huge alien landscape, the planet/moons in orbit, the orangey-red tones; it all reminds me of old sci-fi illustration (which I love and makes sense if you were inspired by Rodney Matthews.) It's great to see you submitting again! :)

Ah wow thankyou so much! I'm so glad you see the connection, I love old sci-fi illustration too and Rodney Matthews is my favourite artist of all time, so I'm happy that my attempts to mimic the style came through C: Wanna do more pieces like this in the future.
Thankyou! <3

You're welcome! I was on your tumblr the other day seeing if there were any new arts :B I will look forward to seeing more pieces like this (or just art in general ^^) :)

Ah awesome, I didn't realise anyone here looked at my tumblr XD Yeah I've mostly just been doing sketches lately, trying out new ideas with designs and anatomy and posing and just generally trying to get better in those areas, hence there being more activity on that blog than here. Trying to get back into actual painting too though, I've got a couple of (old) pieces I'm currently trying to finish :3
Your art's all looking great by the way, sorry I've not been active enough to leave any comments etc. I'll get to it eventually XD

Yeah I still like to see what art people get up to even if they aren't as active any more or have migrated off to other places. I always find it kind of sad if someone just disappears altogether or gives up art for good. So it's nice to see you're still arting! I look forward to seeing more C:

And thanks! Don't worry about it though, I really don't mind! X3

There's some really lovely detail in the foreground, plus the nice touch of blurring on the part right up close to the viewer! The lesser detail in the background actually works, too, as I think it naturally wouldn't be as defined when viewed from further away. :]

Ffffffffffffff how are you so good at landscapes?!?!? Seriously, this looks amazing. All the details on the rock in the foreground alone are really astonishing.

I'm not that great, there are plenty of people who are far better than me XD Landscapes are actually one of the main things that I feel I need to improve at haha.
I'm glad you like this though, thankyou! C:

Well, I'm glad that you're working to improve your landscape technique, but seriously dude, don't but yourself down like that! This looks really awesome :nod:. And of course :hug:
