Ohh! :heart:

It's so unreal in a way, and yet I can feel myself there...

The surface the astronauts are standing on looks odd somehow... doughy? I think that's hardly noticeable in full view, though.

I was trying to recreate the mood of the Moon and show that the big hollow space rock can be beautiful as well. The beauty of relativity and overall contrast.

The surface there is covered by grit, sand and numerous rocks of all sizes and forms. A mix texture of this matters under the direct omniscient light from Sun is not simple for painting, as I expected, and the applyling of noise filter caused such funny effect.

Thank you. :)

I think it was Buzz Aldrin who said, when he landed on the Moon, "Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. A magnificent desolation."

You did create the mood of the Moon, perfectly. :)

All in all not bad, but for my taste a little bit to sharp...

Sweet lighting here. :) Depth works too but may I ask why the sky looks so grainy? :?
Reply
:iconandr-sar:
Andr-Sar Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2006
Cause I love the grainish sharpen feeling: it makes it look more as natural media. But everything needs an accurate limitation, which, it seems, is lacking of this piece. ;P

Good answer. ;) It really does add some realism in piece but I myself prefer the fantasy values of art. ;) Everyone does things on their own way. :)

After that my previous flare was criticized to hell, I've decided to modify the Photoshops's original flare a little bit more. :D

Not sure about the perspective of the people. Something about them looks off.

But what i really love about this is the lighting - You have kept a brightness in the piece that really helps make it look realistic.

Fantastic. :nod:

Thank you. Sometimes I love to leave the "sketchy" look, maybe that is what wrong with those da spacemans. :)
