Such a cool idea and I love the fact that the guy somehow looks like he's waiting for a duel opponent or something like that! :D

I truly don't know how you can do something like this in only an hour
your works always amaze me

:iconchriscold:
ChrisCold Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014
well, this one took me closer to 4 hours from scratch, 
I suppose I could have done it much faster if I used some textures and just photobashed the whole thing, but for the sake of recording a video I wanted to show more brushwork, instead of copy-and-pasting images.

my point exactly! I watched the video, and man I gotta say, I'm still extremely impressed with how fast you finished this! 4 hours isn't all that much time for a whole piece, and the fact you actually painted it, and didn't paste pictures or add textures, is incredibly impressive. You're very talented my good sir! <3

Really weird and wonderful. Reminds me of this anime film I watched recently, Patema Inverted, the concept is similar. I recommend it for people who want to have their minds flipped, as is the case with this great image! :D thanks for sharing.

yeah, that was what I had in mind.
The entire world is basically like a big cave, the stone ceiling stretches as far as the land does.

I really like this picture and how you used an orange-blue palette to make good color contrast! The value contrast in many ways also gives a lot of depth, and your use of blur does give a good sense of an actual viewer, who's eyes we're seeing from.

However, I am confused as to what the focal point of your image is. The value contrast in your picture gives a sense that the rocks around the person are the focal point, to the point that I honestly didn't see them there! If that was your intention, then that's fine, but if you meant to make the person the center of the shot, maybe increasing the contrast of values around them would do that. 

Anyway, that's all I had to say. Good luck and keep working hard!

Your eyes go straight for the person because his shape is different from the rocks and because the edges around him are the sharpest.
Once you see him, you realize he is standing there, facing and observing the landscape, so that's where your eyes go next. There is no focal point in the background, just like there is none when you see a city from the top of a skyscraper, or when you see a mountain range.
This image is about the nature of the landscape, not about a specific landmark or location. Yeah, I could have added a big mountain in the back, or some pillar sticking out, but that would imply it's the character's destination and that it's somehow important. Otherwise, everyone's eye behaves the way I described above.
