    First one too. You have a genuine gift my friend. Again, your use of colour is great.

    I like the third actually. It's like some gaping void opened up in the sky and out popped eldritch sunflower abominations to consume the planet.

    I'm also a fan of the third one. There's definitely more of a visual balance to it, and it's the most exciting one to look at. Stunning work as always!

    Very nice paintings! I adore the contrasting of bright colors and black lines; they are make a beautiful scenery that I wished we have in this world.

    Do you happen to have more paintings posted on this thread?

    Thanks you all for the kind words and advice! Glad to hear you all like different versions for different reasons. I decided to go and publish the first and brightest one, mostly because it stays true to the way the painting was intended - that one was the background for about 90% of painting process.

    I took the time to make some crops to show some of the details.

    That last one is absolutely gorgeous. The colours, the texturing... beautiful. I'd just take the bottom half of the entire thing and stare.

    Thank you Faris!

    I got around to finish two new watercolor paintings.

    The first one is somewhat of a color experiment. I kinda like how it turned out, but I have some mixed feelings about it. I think it lacks a little meaning.

    This second one... took ages. I must have repainted the whole thing a dozen times. I had to change the concept halfway too.

    At first I wanted to give the ship insect wings for sails to symbolize questioning whether mankind uses or abuses nature for it's own prosperity. But then the wings turned out horrible and I decided to get rid of that idea.

    After some long hard thoughts I came up with a concept and title; 'This Pirate Ship Navigates by One Star Only'. Whoever gets the symbolism earns bonus points!

    Despite some trouble along the road I really like the way this one turned out. It seems to have a bit more depth visually and a stronger concept too. What do you guys think?

    I wish I can live in that colorful vibrant world. Very nice works!

    HAUHAUHAU new digital painting! I had a ton of fun playing with the lighting and textures.

    This is probably my most detailed work so far and it was very satisfying to work on. Here's a hi-res image to check out the level of detail if you're interested;
