been a while since i put something up... procrastination mostly, and multiple projects that i try to multitask on and fail at so i get nothing done except for this!

This idea was a collaboration of at least 7 thumbnail concepts that i had done and then finalized them all here. Originally the painting was gonna be almost the same except a hand of Junk was going to be reaching out toward the girl, and then a city would encroach the background. But i liked my idea of pipes sapping the life out of the forest, and i wanted to have a natural disease decaying the forest.

Really there isn't much of a story for the girl on the dock, except that i have been drawing various versions of this very girl. I like to think there is a story to her even if i don't have one for her just yet.

Everything was done in Photoshop with my Wacom Intuos tablet... long night to finish it... many layers... im tired... later days!



Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like it

I kind of wish you DID add the city, because everything in the picture has all this attention to detail... and then there's just a big blank yellow space. But the girl is a unique design, and the picture flows pretty well, so G'job.

Thanks, I actually constantly look at this an go "i wish i woulda done this, or that, or what if..." for instance, I dislike the rock in the foreground and want it to be slightly darker to fit in a little better. Add more shadowing to the girl so she doesnt stick out soo much. The green i want to transition better cuz it sits in one spot, so expand the gradient more really. I thought about adding a Iron Giant style robot in the background around the blank space of the ocean. Lots of ideas that came up didnt actually make the final cut unfortunately.

Thanks again for the Review!
