Starlight Abyss by drachenmagier Starlight Abyss by drachenmagier
Trying out acrylics on canvas. Typical case of "I have no idea what I'm doing~. :D But it was fun. Simply threw color onto it and tried to figure out what to draw via Rorschach-Test. (oh, that splotch looks kinda like a cliff with a bridge!).

Well, I just swatted color onto a canvas and waited for something to happen. ^^' So, I guess there is rarely a less planned painting in my gallery that this one. XD

Though I still got lots to learn when it comes to acrylics. That medium really fights me with every bit it has. ^^'

I really don't know what to say about this, other than I find the view to be absolutely mesmerizing. Well, that and the notion of floating for eternity as crystalized particles of blood and tissue matter amongst a colony of young stars
I have to ask; those larger spheres, are they far away planets, some form of shapely space junk etc.?...Perhaps moons circleing outside the atmosphere? *cough* Erm, sorry, I get a little too 'engaged' at times
Bottom line: this is a beautiful picture; the atmosphere is not only extremely pretty but also very thought-evoking and well composed - thanks much for sharing

Thank you very much!

And I guess I have to keep in mind that the discussions with Metaller can be read by everybody. xD Though yes, the idea of floating through space as crystalized blood sounds... kinda romantic, no matter how to look at it. *wide grin*

I'm not really sure if those are some kind of bubbles, planets or even whole suns. I guess I'll just leave that to the observer. And my mood. On one day those are suns, on others just stardust. :3

And thank you very much for the compliments! :heart:

You're not alone there, though I fear the atmosphere of that place might be rather toxic for humans. :D I mean, we're watching stars that glow because of the energy of helium-fusion drift through the *air* in this area. No oxygen around for sure, otherwise the sky would be burning.

Hey, it could be worse. I mean, it's most likely so cold there with such little amounts of gravity that your blood instantly forms perfect round droplets, freezing solid only seconds after.

So, you'd drift among the stars as red crystals. Doesn't that sound like something? :D

Yes, it's definitely different. Though fun~ I guess I will make a few more of those in the future. Though... I will have to find out how I can store them. Can't place them above each other, it seems...

It is really well done!

It looks like an Artwork for games, or movies... so they can CG and make a story around a place like this. I would be curious to see an artwork a bit like this, but not with cold colors like that. This one is awesome, but I would just be curious to see you doing an other one... diffenrent of course but with hot colors... with daylight... or I don't know.

But to stick with this topic... nice work there ^^

I got two works with acrylics in progress right now, both with more warm coloring. Well... not cliffs, but at least in the reddish one you'll find stars. ^^' Wait... *searches* WIPs are here: [link]
And here: [link]

Wow both are really awesome!! But I honestly prefer the second one with water... there's more details and it looks really good and ''mystic''.

But well really nice job, don't stop it! I love staring at what you make :P Since I don't have your talent XD

Both are far from finished too. :D The water-shire is farther though, I only applied the base colors on the other. And I'm still trying to figure out what I will do with it now. ^^'
