Thanks Pearson. Hopefully I can keep up the pace. Really enjoying doing smaller pieces for a change. I usually tend to overstretch myself and do big projects i never finish (Dom War 4 and currently i'm neglecting Unearthly...nevermind though as long as im busy i suppose). I get your comments on the parallels, will keep that in mind in future.
Cheers Roo. again, I agree. Adding more light and dark detail to each layer is something I will be doing with pieces like this. In fact I intend to learn to make whole scene blend seemlessly so the layers wont be so noticable.
Here's one I started a few weeks back as a silhouette picture and finished off with added lighting and atmosphere today.
I call it "Hello Crab
And as an added bonus
Here's a piece I did for the EOW over at CA.org about a month ago.
