Gosh, terry, long time no see. Making it in that mag was a very cool thing for me, i heard about that mag via word of mouth and thought well, i'll give it a shot. It was a magic day waking up in my third day of a nasty virus, to read my emails with the happy news Laughing out loud. Many thanks for the visit, terry.....Marley

Hey Marley! This one gets a CHRIS PICK from me! Congratulations! Anyway though, I think this one must have just barely escaped an Editor's Pick, there's just something about it that's really great. Editors! Give this man an editor's pick!! I agree t

Thanks mate Laughing out loud. glad you like it..My chances are slimmed somewhat. it stuffed up and sent a somewhat small jpeg through Sad..it would accept my sized down psd..so i hope this piece speaks loudly enough for itself!. Thanks again, myth!.

No worries mate. that is infact a consistant crit that many have said before. Needs more contrast. its a reccurent theme in my art :?. hehe. thanks very much for taking the time to crit!, matt......

Hi again,

I hope you don't mind, but you could just play with the contrast/levels a little bit. Maybe put a little more intensity into the sunset. For me at the moment it's just a tiny bit lacking in contrast so it hasn't quite got the impact I'm sure it could have. Please, please, please, don't be offended by me saying this. Thing is you've done the work, the image is fantastic but it never hurts to try a few tweeks, just a thought!

Now that's rather nice, you have painted an unbelievable sky and an equally impressive environment. Well done Sir!!!Wink

I recon... it could be your best piece yet! Laughing out loud Great colours, and very dramatic! Good luck!

He he, this time I get to be first to comment ! Smile You seem to have gone a bit away from your usual color palette with these green water-like tones. It is an interesting direction, especially in a sci-fi context like Starcraft. Very interesting (as usual, I should say).

Art at its best.
