You used such fantastic, rich colors in these environments that upon a second look, the viewer is at risk of being sucked into the scene. Your compositions are fantastic, with the right amount of space and framing that creates something idyllic and lovely.
well, the critic said wow at both of those pieces. the first one i really like the mood with the dark blues. The second one is really the river flowing down all the way to the structure in the back, i love the lighting one the rocks in the foreground, looks awesome.
I've always enjoyed your work, but these particularly took my breath away. I don't know why, they're not even your most "impressive" pieces, but there's something about them. I think they remind me of the Ralph McQuarrie Star Wars concepts, which I enjoyed as a kid (and still do) so there's a feeling of nostalgia to them. They, and these works, bring out the kid in me, inflaming my imagination. Or something. Amazing work, mate.
