Ancient - PHB Concept Art by ColdFlame1987 Ancient - PHB Concept Art by ColdFlame1987
Two scout units of the Allience force were searching in the Forest near their base... and found an ancient alien base. Huge trees in the heart of the forest formed the basis of the buildings in the alien base. There were golden lights coming out of the windows. It was quite...
Are there still lifeforms living here?

If I could draw like you I could finally draw the things that are lingering in my mind for so long. This is so much after my taste. Yet I don't know if I should watch you yet or not. Because what difference will my comment make to the 50 or more you get on one single picture.
This picture here just won't load. It takes aaages on this computer. So I'm spending the time it takes to load to write this comment...

I like the atmosphere of your work most, I guess. And how some things seems so filigree and realistic. I think it wonderful that it takes you so long for one single picture to finish, for it gives me hope that I'm not the only one taking so much time. Thank you that you provide this place with such wonderful art. The guy who made this other picture of yours a DD was right. This is how digital art should be.

The contrasts and light effects are really good. However, I miss the extra touch of realism which would have made it even better. Work on the details, you're definitly heading the right way.

Like I said on the forums, there's an amazing atmosphere of mysticism and awe.

The lighting and colours are top notch and the shapes are pretty nice, too, pulling your eyes around all those little details :)

Fantastical work, mate :)

Oh... hell... yeah! This is the sort of stuff I live for! Sci-fi all the way, baby! And you simply can't beat ancient groves of alien mystery and power, now can you? :D

That aside, now for the artistic critique:
:bulletblue: The effect you created of dusty air by having a few well-placed dots of color and light comes through VERY well! Combined with the rays of light, it adds wonderfully to the overall atmosphere of the piece. Funny how the simple stuff can go a long way, huh?
:bulletblue: The lighting effects are probably the best part of this piece: it adds to the crisp feel of the armor of the soldiers, the advanced nature of the allien technology, the weapons, the sunlight streaming in through the canopy... just beautiful!
:bulletblue: I like the way you did the water: just enough of a reflection to say it's mostly still, except for the disturbances left by the soldiers.
:bulletred: My one negetive point: the sense of scale and distance. It's very hard to tell just how large that tree is supposed to be in comparison to the troops. From the perspective, it looks like the lowermost dome of gold lights is about head-height for them... but from the comparison of scale of things (the size of the tree and where it's top is and so-on and so-forth)... well, it's hard to tell just how large that cluster of alien technology really is.

Anyhoo, I hope to see this mod/total conversion when HL2 shows up! If your art is any indication of what it's going to be like, I certainly want a piece of it.
