No real pretention here just an artwork to illustrate an important concept for 2014, to always move forward and climb the mountain, work harder and be proud of what you have already done. Keep this light in your eyes as your main goal and fancy grab it with your hand once over there, once on top of the mountain. NASA stock for the planet Personal stock for the mountain Thanks for your kind words lately, and let's rock and roll this new year with lots of great art!!!

This is my way to not forget them, homeless people in the streets, fighting every day just to survive, get some food and find a warm spot to sleep. I've been really moved by this picture, so i wanted to put in paralleI this homeless face with a Santa Claus figure wondering if Santa is not a homeless man too finally.

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 Sun, 01 Dec 2013 12:27:30 -0500 The Seven Mountains http://shadowness.com/shue13/the-seven-mountains <a href="http://shadowness.com/shue13/the-seven-mountains"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/391562/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />As you seemed to have appreciated my fantasy digital painting turn here is another one I did not have time to finish on time for the Luminarium new exhibit. This is complete painting from scratch, with a sort of clash between the knight and castle remains on the left and the sci-fi buildings on the right with the character watching for the spaceships to get into. Hope you'll enjoy this one.

Exhibit here: http://theluminarium.net/v3/exhibits.php?id=22 This artwork is part of my 'Terminal' series and then constitutes the third one from the series. Here are below the two other ones: The backstory of this one is "While a space battle is taking place, the biggest cargo man created ever in space is there to refuel and refill the troops for spaceships at war. But it's a war of pirates though and like a hive the cargo terminal send spaceships to seak for some other energy more valuable that they bring back to the cargo." Most of the scene is 3DSmax, I modeled everything, inspired from contemporary oïl tankers of course with heavy postwork in photoshop. Loving to do that!!! I hope you're gonna like this third piece as I spend quite a lot of time putting details as usual. Thanks for faving, watching, sharing my work. Wed, 20 Nov 2013 15:03:00 -0500
