Sanctuary by look Sanctuary by look
It's not turning out the way I hoped. Somehow I felt the old wip was better. :/

Maybe the faeries and drago fly was too much.

Painted in Photoshop

duration: @.@ 15+ hour probably...

I don't think it's too much ^^ I love it just the way it is, cause I guess that's how I would imagine a sanctuary for myself =)

I like the dragonfly.

But.. hmm... maybe ur dissatisfaction in this is because of the color contrasts? That light shines a semi-warm glow on everything but the dragonfly and fairy. Maybe that`s why?

I don:t know. I like it still.

This reminds me of that old Hayao Miyazaki film, "Nausicaa of the Valleu of the Wind". Pretty cool, I like the use of such vibrant colors! Now I gotta go watch that movie again...

That was a good movie. All of Miyazaki's film are awesome.. except grave of the fireflies. It was way too sad T T

Man this sux ba ballz. Worst thing I hav evar seen!!!*


*note the sarcasm

This is yet another fantastic pic. I really like the colour scheme. Reminds me of somewhat deep tropical waters. Very soothing.

Um, if you want some sort of critique, as you say you're not as happy with it as you thought you would, I could offer this:

The rays of light coming though on the left hand side look like they're bent inwards, and not straight like the others. Or could just be that my minds bent, which is a distinct possibility.

Also, you say that you had a problem about the perspective of the draco fly and rider looking bigger than everything else, though they're just supposed to be closer to us than everything else. To me, the issue seem to lie in the fairy just below them. When I first looked at it, they fairy below seemed to lie on the same plane as the draco fly and it's rider. Perhaps removing, or just moving the fairy would help to better bring out the illusion of perspective that you were going for.

That's what I can see anyway. But again, it's just my opinion.

You're far more talented then I, so take this with a grain of salt I guess.

But, hey, I love this picture none the less.

I could use some "that sux ballz" comment once in awhile, to remind me of my place and need of improvement. :)
The rays could be bent inward without me realizing it, since it was all stroked freehand (and I tend to stroke curves rather than straight lines)

It's something that was made for a 3D program called Blender that I've been learning on my free time. I bought a book that came with a cd full of short movies that were cute. The picture you made reminded of one of the shorts called The Little Fairy By David Revoy
