New method of composition for me. Started off with a really small canvas (400x160) and worked at that size first. Then that way I could concentrate on the composition without being distracted by detail work. When I felt like I got it I blew it up to the size you see here and painted right over the top. I think it helped make the whole piece a little more dynamic than some of my other compositions. I dunno. Solved a lot of other problems for me as well. So I will probably keep working that way in the future.

Please for the love of god view large. It's soooo tiny otherwise.

-Edit again-
Sincerest thanks, whoever is responsible for frontpaging this. That's awesome.

Occluded responds:

Yeah the child's toy in the wreckage is a bit of a trope, but after it was pointed out to me (most of the way done at this point) I was too lazy to re-imagine the scene. Thanks for the 9 anyway.

more plz

I really like the picture i dont think those are robots tho i think they are people from another planet or maybe as the planet was being destroyed they r the ones who got away now thay are back to sift through the wreakage. whatever it is the detail is great and i would really like to see more like this. the big picture with alot of little thing to catch your eye

Occluded responds:

You are right these were supposed to be people in protective suits. The survivors left to sift through the wreckage. That was my intention when I painted it. Glad it communicated to you.

Thanks for the props.

not great. The left is very well done, but I am not so sure about the space craft. the shapes the colors and the set up seem less thought through.

I also dont really know whats happening. the dude in the front is checking something out, oke but the other is pulling a teammate out of the ground? I just dont 'get' the picture, but that can be insightful failure from my part.

of course the above doesnt make it a bad picture.

Occluded responds:

I wish I knew if you viewed this large or not.

The idea is that these are the survivors of a catastrophe. The one up front is looking at a dirty teddy bear he's found in the rubble. And the other two were checking out a hollow. The spacecraft jets were originally blue, but I changed the color because I thought this fit better, but maybe it still doesn't fit.

Thanks for the thoughtful review.

I looked at it on full screen and realized he's holding a purple bear (probably the one from Toy Story 3) and I think the thruster thingies in the back are just fine with color.

Occluded responds:

Haven't seen toy story 3 yet. But I'm glad you could make it out. Thanks for the ten man.

Occluded responds:

Thanks for the kind words man.
