Long Journey Home by ApneicMonkey Long Journey Home by ApneicMonkey
Trying something new (again)...

This one, I started it in Painter X and then finished it off in Photoshop CS3.

It's a very simple, quick piece but I'm really happy with how it turned out.

I like the feeling of the blowing desert wind. The flapping cloak and the sand particles flying off the dunes. I don't know if it was intentional, but I like it.

Personally, I would have picked Spiderman or Batman... but each to their own. :p

in the thumbnail view I thought the white structure in the background was a sand dune or iceberg or something. More so the sand dune because I also thought the animal that person is riding on was a camel. Looking at it closer kind was kind of surprising. It's a wonderful picture. Looks like the title says.

I like the motion you captured in the strokes on the left. ^_^

The animal's feet seem to be meeting the ground in something of an odd way though. Not really distracting, just thought it looked a bit...awkward.

I thought so too - any recommendations on how to fix it?

Not really. I'm just a photographer/writer. I guess you could maybe make the back leg kind of thicker or add more distinct hooves to interact with the ground more clearly. No idea if that would actually work though.

That's odd, I assumed you rode donkeys and drank the milk of llamas...

It's really amazing (and scary) what comes out of people's heads sometimes.

That looks like it took you long, although you said it was a short one... ._.

Can you make a walk through, maybe? It would really help me.

Great piece, as usual ^^

A walkthrough of this particular painting? It was pretty much all on one layer so I don't have individual stages anymore... Next time I paint something, I'll keep it all separate and put together another step-by-step. ;)
