Time to Rest by ApneicMonkey Time to Rest by ApneicMonkey
Just trying out some new things... I could probably say that for almost everything I paint as I'm always trying to incorporate new techniques, etc to improve myself over the last painting.

I think I really improved in a couple of areas with this one... I took a chance by adding in the red scarf around the humanoid's neck as it's such a contrasting color to the rest of the image but I think it really paid off. I'm not too happy with the heads/helmets on the statues but I can always go back at a later time and rework them. :)

This is the kind of thing that I really enjoy painting - that faraway world that you can relate to but is still completely alien.

Very well-done rocks, with such an interesting 'skyline', and I think you got that sense of "faraway world that you can relate to but is still alien" exactly. I like helmets on the statues, but I think that's because they remind me of Mandalorians. XD The scarf works well as a splash of color; I'd like to be able to see the creatures' faces more clearly to know whether they have beaks or not, if only for my own curiosity and because at first they looked like camels with feed bags.

They're very similar to camels... ;) I imagine that they have a long snout like Garindan [link] at least that's what was in my head when I painted it.
