Sunrise on Metropolis by Vectortrance
Looking great, buddy! My only critique would be that you normally can't see that much detail from space. My counter-thought to that though was that maybe this isn't Earth and it's more like one of those tiny Dragonball Z planets that they could run around in 20 minutes. If there's some way to emphasize the reasoning around being able to see so much detail, or push the fact that this isn't Earth, that may help. Maybe by adding another planet or cluster that clearly isn't part of our solar system could help.

Check this out for some subtle tweaks to composition that can help subconsciously push things too:…

Your polish is getting really good on stuff like this. I'm always impressed with your Photoshop photomanip skills. I want to see more.
Self portrait in pink and blue by Monkeyslunch
Self portrait in pink and blue
Here's a self portrait. Inspired by the colour scheme from a lovely Mikkel Sommer poster, and made utilizing Kyle T Webster's Photoshop Brushes. Wasn't going to leave the original light blue under drawing in but decided I liked it better with it showing through.

I'm still alive over at, blogging about art and design, about to release an ebook, and making art and design resources. :)
Anyone else surprised by the big loss today?

I'm completely stumped as to why they didn't just try and sell to someone else? They say it's about personal reasons, which way may never know. The thing about that though is that it wasn't a personal site, it wasn't just one person's site. It was a community. Like deviantart. If one of the owners of deviantart suddenly closed the doors and said "yeah, sorry, it's personal" would that be OK with everyone? Blows my mind! I wonder if they even considered selling.

I guess that kind of begs the question about when does something you create become everyone else's instead of yours? When everyone else is so invested, and you aren't anymore, should you just find a way to release it? I find that to be a very interesting question, indeed.
