Oh yeah, I eventually realized that whoring out the Marketplace was a lot more efficient than doing commissions (yuck!). The site's userbase is 95% retarded, though, so eventually I got disillusioned and left. xP
You're right: the black border seriously enhances your work. Very nice. I haven't mentioned it yet, but you make the most amazing stars and star blankets! It's just lovely. The water right at the front seems to be a little mechnaical in this: only reason I noticed was compared to that gorgeous array of stars it just stands out to me more. However, the composition in this is great. The color balance and the position and size of the objects is just dead on. This is another beautiful work!
i edit my stuff alot too some times this turned out excellent though....i
i love the contrast in colors
and the very bottom of the picture makes me feel serene the most...my favorite part of it \m/
-warm gooshy feeling-
I love the lighting. I forget who the artist is but one of his pics is currently under my favourites, he does work very similar to this. However it is still a different style. I love this new surreal-space art. Awesome.
I think I know who you might be talking about. There was this guy who did Bryce landscapes and sometimes added space in.... He was a lot better than me, IIRC. It's been a while, though; I looked through his gallery long before I joined DevART, so now I have no idea who he is. It's a shame, too; I wish I could find him again...
