Daily Deviation

Given 2009-05-08
Arrival by *raybender combines a good perspective and well chosen details. The contrastful colors and the clean brushwork make this painting extraordinary. ( Suggested by ZuluSplitter and Featured by taenaron )

Tried to make something out of it?? Your work is awsome! // Chin

I can see how you didn't have the same level of attention at every point, as the top is blurry and sketchy while the distant background in the bottom seems to be detailed to the last pixel. I would have devoted the detail to the foreground while left the background somewhat blurry and sketchy.

Something else that greatly bothers me: is that huge cylinder hanging right on top of the landing pad? That would be Very counter intuitive, as a narrow, circular landing pad would be precisely for VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) vehicles, which by definition require a clear overhead.

In top it looks like closed interior but look at bottom, it opens and whole city below~

I completely understand your statement on putting in too much detail, my personal work always ends up with me putting in to much detail and much like yourself I find it a increasingly difficult struggle to try and loosen up....none the less I really like your work Ray...... I've always liked sci-fi just never got a chance to do sucked into another realm of art, feel free to browse my gallery and leave a critique.

RhysGriffiths Featured By Owner May 21, 2009
wow your perspective is always spot on.. it looks amazing. can i ask how you go about your initial composition? do you draw using perspective lines and such, or use a 3D program? totally understand if you dont have the time to answer :)

AlexBroeckel Featured By Owner May 18, 2009
hi... i painting normally takes 2 to 3 days... this one was 2 days. some are longer, depending on details.

just brilliant
wolfinthehead Featured By Owner May 10, 2009
Hey, very very nice indeed! Another great work.
I like this one, as the futuristic setting and colour contrast are both very interesting - although the contrast might be a little too much so, as the picture doesn't exactly seem as linear as it might.

Still great, though.
TomBydand Featured By Owner May 9, 2009

now thats what i call good!

Not a pro user so cant do a critique critique.But i'll do one here instead ^_~.


First of all it somehow reminds me of Star Wars looking at it.The lightning is nicely done and goes excatly as its supposed to be.Then the size of the people near the ship are small compared to the one on the balcony upside which depicts realism and makes the deviant look much more creative.The jet looks amazing no doubt!.The pathway looks nice and your perspective is totally correct.
Now for the city.Yet again the city perspective is painted very well keeping the upper portion (hanger) in mind.The city lights look amazing and the city really is made beautiful with those and it even looks like a Future Tech City :)
So in conclusion you did a great job with the lightning and the perspective and other "common things to keep in mind" (like the city is going to be futuristic etc).

It reminds me of the backup generator (I thiiiink that's what it was) in the movie Serenity. teehee- mixed with the Star Wars movie when. . . umm, they jump into the car. . . It was the one with a changelum I think (gee, I didn't know I even KNEW that XD)
