I find your coloring style very pleasing, great work. Although, I have to admit, it took a while to figure out what the slayer was doing on top of the creature. Perhaps a more dynamic pose would have made this great piece even better.

Thanks for the comment, and yes, I agree with what you're saying. As I've said in reply to another comment about this, I've been focusing on my poses and dynamism since I did this piece so improvements in those areas will hopefully be visable in my newer work.

Colors and lighting execution are gorgeous, as is the general attention to detail. I feel that one thing that could use work, though, is the sense of action and in the scene. The alien seems like it's almost completely still, and the alien slayer is just chilling on top of it and not hanging onto anything for stability.

Your work brightened my day, though. Please continue producing excellent art.


buriedantenna responds:

Thanks a lot for the comment, I'm glad that my work has so may elements that you like. With regards to the action/poses in the scene, I completely agree with you. Dynamism and movement are things I've been doing a lot of work on lately, hopefully as I post my more recent work you'll see some improvement in those areas. Thanks for a nice piece of sugar-coated constructive criticism :)

It looks like a planet filled with "fight". Fighting over and over, just a planet that only knows war. It seems like there is so much fighting going on that the ground doesn't even have time to absorb all of it. interesting world.


buriedantenna responds:

That's a very interesting interpretation- particularly that you would see the violence of the image on a planetary scale. My thinking, as I worked on the piece, was that this is an area of the planet that is a territory of these large creatures and hunting them is a dangerous business. The ground is littered with the bones of hunters who have tried and failed. It's certainly a harsh and cruel world, but I hadn't imagined that the whole planet would be one enormous battle. It's very cool to hear what reactions the image provokes in others, thanks for taking the time.
