Monolith by ApneicMonkey Monolith by ApneicMonkey
I've been a bit sick this past week with migraines and other assorted nastiness so the last thing I felt like doing was staring at a PC to paint something.

Anyway, seem to be back in form now with a personal Sci-Fi image that's been in my head for a while.

Most have said what I wanted to say about color and contrast. Simply amazing. And wonderful colors

And when someone had mentioned spray-painting speedpaint, here is what they mean: [link]

This picture had reminded me of the movie SPHERE by Michael Crichton. The huge tail wing protuding from the ocean floor. I'd like to see a continuation of this picture sometime. From the inside of the monolith.

Btw, there is going to be more pieces about this place, including some stuff from inside. It's all concepts based on a script a friend and I are writing.

This is just the beginning. :)

The contrast between the silhouettes and the really bright sun and sky are pretty cool, as is the building that looks almost like a natural rock formation. Good work.

Cool, that's the exact look I was going for... as if this alien 'think' had just formed from out of the planet itself. :)

I'd really like to know now... how often exactly do you go around punching pains and ailments? Do you also kick the living shit outta general sickness and disease? :p

Thanks man. I've been meaning to comment on your latest batch of stuff - you've definitely taken an interesting turn with your work. Not so much speedpainting anymore - more composition and matte... it's very cool.

I really have to commend you on trying something new... especially becasue it's working out so well. :D

Yeah, I tried out matte painting and I enjoyed it alot, but slowly it turned from that to photo-manipulation, and that is where I am at now. So far people seem to like my manips alot more than they ever did my paintings. Also I am having alot of fun with manips ass well.

Thank you for the wonderful comment!

well, the color pallet, the sun, and the environment just have similar lines and whatnot..
