hey! this piece was originally made for april fools 2010 but I lost track of the time and am just finishing it now. tried to add my own flavor into a tomic-esque style while also making the scene something somewhat original- that being a sunset.

i have a lot to work on this summer so i won't be changing much on this if it isn't minor, but i hope you guys like it. i would have used his preview, but april fools is far gone now!

The colours are epic

Barely 28 colours, but it seems there is much more as they are such nicely used

I remember seeing this far back when you where doing it for the April Fools. I loved it then and I love it more so now that it is complete! The sky is to die for. I definitely see Tomic's style in there, however it mixes with yours and it's really refreshing. Fav'd.

Heh, this has a very nice atmosphere, I like it a lot.

There are however two small nitpicks I have:

Due to the shadows the character is hard to decipher, is it some sort of centaur or what is going on with the lower body? You could clarify it with a soft secondary light to touch the silouette/outlines of the character on the right side.

At the very center of the picture you are abstracting the clouds into almost graffitti-like ornamental structures. I feel this destroys the distinctive look of the coulds. If you wanna add these decorative elements I'd rather add them at the fringes of the clouds, where the illumination on them is down to almost an outline anyway. While the most strongly illuminated cloud cluster retains its "cloud-shape". Kinda like dithering with shapes.

Anyways, great stuff!

edit: doh I get it now, he is sitting on a donkey. I totally managed to look past it.

Ver good work indeed!

I think some more effort must be made to capture Tomic's unique sense of color, tho. :D

What vast refined improvement shown here... the flowers on the grass must have been a brainfart tho

Dude, it's just awesome. Love it.

 Thats prettyt awesome. One of your best pieces for sure, if not the best. I love how you used the black.

But I could tell from the preview that this was yours, so I'm not sure how well you captured tomic's style. Though I did guess that it was based on his stuff when I saw the characters and read the title.

 Very colorful.

Colorful and great concept.


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/16/2010 10:25

thanks, man. i remember you originally helped me a lot with this, i should definitely add your name to the descrip

about the edit: i like the colors but it seems more like something alkaline would produce. all of these colors are tomic's, darkened or lightened appropriately. i really like the sun in your edit though, makes it look more like a sun. shall play around with that aspect.

thanks everyone!

Simply amazing!

The background, the colors, the shading, the atmosphere are incredible!

The only thing that could be better, is the depth sense. The planes separation don't look enough... I think this is because the size of the characters, they could be smaller...

Anyway congrats!

i'm not a huge fan of him and his monkey heads, but  you've captured his style quite well.. in places =)

seconding the objection that the sunset looks a bit like an explosion, saturation-wise at least.. but if sunset, aTomic explosion or supernova even - having some sunglasses handy is advantageous in all of these cases =)

faved.

Very nice work! But at first glance I thought it was an explosion!

Awesome piece! The sig is pretty handy against art-theft! Also love the hints towards other pieces (monkey cave and donkey on cliff). ossum!

Really enyojanble... I like the colour edit by Skamocore, but the  original palette is sweet too...


user

nice and colorful image 


user
Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 7/16/2010 00:52

for vic: maybe much dithering tsk

i've recognized your style dex =P 


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/16/2010 00:43

Wow, it's been a while.

I made a quick colour edit. The sunset doesn't seem very sunsetty or bright.

edit: Nice signature.
