The Mysterious Stranger


This is my very first computer generated piece of art, so cut me some slack. Id absolutely adore any suggestions or advice on improving it, I made it with Corel Painter Essentials 4.

Im thinking about making a graphic novel in this style.

Ziggy Stardust?

Certainly an interesting muse, this piece has a very pink look to it, complete with the flora and fauna of some sort of alien setting. I was immediately drawn to the similarities between your character at the front and David Bowie's alter ego, who seemed to come along with this sort of setting. I could quite happily have seen this as some sort of concept art for the album at the time, but we're obviously a little late for that.

The texture that you use on the rocks and plants (?) is certainly varied and interesting, giving rise to a lot of potential for recreating the local wildlife. I love the flowers that appear to be sprouting from the tree at the top left of shot - this sort of thing can really set a piece off and with the textures of the wisps of cloud ion the sky scene, you've managed just that.

If I were overly critical, more colours could have been used, particularly blues, to soften the image, which is just a little too pink for me at the present. I think you could add some, without damaging the overall impression of the piece.

This pic gives a "toxic" sort of feeling. A story could be made with this pic.

I barely find any mistakes with my eyes, except for the stranger's eye. It seems that little effort has been used to make the eye, and you could maybe make the eye seem more specific. (Instead of just blue, do some extra colors in there).

I find the rest pretty good. Good job. 4 1/2 stars.
