Okay! So I have to ask--how in the world do you paint/create a sky like that!? I've been agonizing over a paint project for a couple years now because I can't figure out how to create a galaxy/space/starry sky like that. . . .
This is beautiful, by the way, in an eery way. The interruption of the irregularity is so interesting
Really nice one again. I did not expect one more of this series. But this is a cool surprise. Since it looks as great as the other ones. I like the awesome background. All those stars, the colorful nebulas, the stony massives below the structure. Awesome new one at all. It even has a surrealistic touch if you look at me. I like it
Nice! Your background-painting skills are awesome as always, the lighting on the shape is perfect, and the colors blend well without becoming muddy. My only suggestion would be to maybe add some smaller pieces of this man-made form floating around to break up some of the empty space in the composition.
I am already seeing the stories this image could generate. The simplest is a Space Odyssey/Prometheus style plot involving its discovery, and the hints of it being a sign post to greater wonder and understanding. of course that plot is fouled up by human fear and treachery, but its there.
The other is it being the grave marker to a civilisation, a great towering edifice proclaiming the great accomplish, all of it surrounded by the cinders of a world. A sign that says 'Do as we say, not as we do' to anyone who finds it. Or perhaps its a lure, a trick of evolution: if you can find this item, figure out how to move it and take it home, then you deserve to have it blow up in your face.
One more intelligent species goes dark due to the dangers of curiosity.
But then again I like to write, and this picture inspires me. Thank you.
