This is magical piece, Marley.. love the overall tone, composition and atmosphere. Relly harmonic concept, great work.

hehe, certainly logic was the last thing on my mind when painting this, infact it never really is, it is more intuition that i go on. I based the title of neptune on its colour palette. it could infact be a gateway that exist between this dimension and another (c)marley mcleay Tongue hahaha i'm sure someone will swipe this concept!. This is more about a plateau of peaceful thinking i think, than any scientific drive!. Thanks very much guest!....Marley

This is a great painting, Marley. Just one question: seeing as how Neptune is a gas giant (or ice giant, as some call Uranus and Neptune), where on Neptune is this city? Is the landscape just a part of the city? Is it underwater, or perhaps contained in a larger floating colony? Please don't take this as any form of criticism. I'm merely curious about the world of a painting I love.

In any event, thanks for painting this. It's a captivating image, and truly inspiring for me. God bless!

Thanks steve. I'd have to rate this piece amongst my favourites. I don't think i have captured anything as unique as this since Sad. I look upon this piece with fondness.

I've done a number of images of Neptune, and I'd say you caught the flavor of the place quite well. (Sure, I'm an expert!) Wink
The green light beaming through the blue mists is particularly captivating, highlighting the spired structures. Nicely done!

the worlds and landscape you've created
are phenomenal. This version of Neptune takes takes the cake! The striking emerald and spiriling city scape adds so much drama to the soft, reflective scene.....
great contrast!

'Dagon', as the movie is named (I think), doesn't do Lovecraft's world justice, actually. I think my favourite book of his is 'at the mountains of madness' (I might have the title wrong - I was only fifteen when I read it), and something about this image really struck a chord with me the same way his writing did. Eerie and beautiful, and alien in a way most artists can't pull off. Anyway, I prattle too much as usual Smile

thrax-1's picture

There isn't much stopping you from doing so holger ;P.Thank you very much m8 Smile.
