the OBSERVATORY by moonxels the OBSERVATORY by moonxels
this is the "OBSERVER" in the famous observatory known as"SIC TRANSIT GLORIA MUNDI"... named after an old EARTH language.

it is seen above what is believed to be the TAURUS-9 ocean-world in the orion belt...
it's by the way a planet wich is very close to EARTH atmosphere ,the earth that is now a forbidden sanctuary...

yes actually it "unfolds" itself in the mothership that's on top.

this image is not so good ,it feels "young" to me ,it's one of my first.

Maybe, but that's its simplicity that makes it great. A 'young' pic is not so bad ^^

well i normally have pattience when doing familiar stuff like portrait and i know a lot about it, but when i start drawing , coloring landscapes, droids i just give up cause i never did it before, also i have a strong criteria when i upload art, every art has to be better than the last one, so i dont post crappy landscapes xD

Well now when you say it i notice there could be a few improvement but not flaws,like the sea and shield could be made more dynamic.

about your work ,not everything had to be posted ,you got to make a lot of OK or crappy works to improve!

i never even edit my stuff no mater how bad it looks , im just too lazy xD the only thing that could need improvement is that shield ,, this would look great as a shield,, [link] .


Also all my stuff that i made was uploaded somewhere, but i never made a work that didnt get posted, all the crappy stuff i start coloring and then i just give up, i became to confrontable with portaits xD

*bows* I love your work. Having a few paragraphs of story to go along with a piece really bring it to life and cause me to contemplate it longer. And thanks for putting up such high resolution images as it allows one to see the details and appreciate them. Like the subtle soap film colors on the bubble.

Your work reminds me of Chris Moore. (: (Which I also love)
