Another inspiring work Moonchild. Love everything about it. Especially the cold atmosphere. And not just because of the snow, but of the colors you chose as well. I really like the "visual path" you made in this one, guiding the eye through the left-handed astronaut first, then down to the ship, because of its bright glare, and finally to the man standing at the right, encased around bright snow. It kinda tells a story. Very creative use of contrast here, really like it. ;)

By the way, I read The Breach... wow, is all I can say. Instantly bought Ghost Country after I finished it. Mind-twisting ending that book has. (The Breach) Thanks for reccomending it. :)

PS: Me thinking here, you should do a CA of The Whisper... That would be a really powerful sight. If its legally possible, of course. I'm going to give it a try myself, but I think It'd be a few years of practice before it might look remotely close to what you can do.

thanks,I'm glad that you read it cause this book fu**g rocks!
what do you mean about a "CA" is that a concept art?
because I have made a picture for it already ,I just can't post it here...

Yeap, Concept Art. And that's fine, I imagined there would be some legal Macguffins involved.

Kinda hard to read about something so epic, profound, and destructive, and not want to draw it, huh? As soon as I get better at painting Concept Art, I'm going to give it a try.

Hahahahaha,xD I can understand that reaction. Well, now you've got at least one person that would appreciate it and understand it. xD Still, even if they don't understand it, I'm sure the quality of the CA or Illustration wouls warrant the appreciation for itself, even if the Concept would be bizarre to them. Heck, what Concept Art isn't. You could just label it, "Alien Artifact", and be done with it. Or Entity #something. If people ask, then u explain that it's part of The Breach. Hey, you never know, it might even wet their curiosity for the novel further.

Love the colours of the environment, gives it a very chilly feel, and the effect looks fantastic.

I like the way the dark figure in the foreground contrasts with the background and guides the eye through the painting.
