^^. cool, thanks very much Franz. It's funny!, I often admire brutal colour schemes, because i cannot make them work. Howbout that for a twist Wink. Thanks again.

I like this good old Space Opera style and you know, I`m a man of brutal colors and therefore always admire subtle and moody color schemes. Well done!

Marley, this is my favorite piece in your collection now! The mood is superb. I love how you capture feeling with your colors and ambience. And of course, I love the aurora-like lighting done in the clouds!! Excellent work.

This is brilliant work Marley. Someone's going to turn your visions into a movie one day, maybe Dreamworks, or ILM. I'd like to see a step-by-step on one of these images. Love the aurora borealis and all of the facets in the architecture. You definitely have a fascinating and unique style.

Another great work from the Mcleay!

You know, you do have a very distinctive style - and I think that is something of great value. Smile

Hey rachel thank you very much, the sky i was very pleased with. I was going to have dramatic clouding, but thought i should do it in a hopefully non too cliche aspect. It was a monkey to paint, every aspect was done at least 6 to 10 times *sighz*. I remember being very relieved for it to be all over...heheh. thanks rachel, always appreciated.

thrax-1's picture

Thanks rita, Simon spoilts it tell ya ^^hahaha. and thanks for the compliment on the colour. Most of the time was spent trying like heck to get everything 'composed' rightly, without over cooking the bacon XD. cheers~~Marley
