SolarGears (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/21/2013 20:25

How gorgeous! It looks like a foggy cave to me, but it is still an eye stunner nevertheless.

Fantastic landscape.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/21/2013 06:14

I agree with Cyangmou and TheInquisitor, but I think this is one of the deepest environments I've seen in PA, just marvelous!

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/20/2013 18:28

 @Cyangmou Ah, I see what you mean, and thank ya!

@TheInqusitor Uh NO THE WATER IS PERFECT AND PUUUURE, hehe I'm jokin but I totally understand where you are getting at. It's something I should think about when trying such compisitions again

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/20/2013 16:18

I love this piece. There's a real unusual technique you've applied to the distant rocks, that Cyangmou referred to as the "pencil-ish effect". It's very cool.

But I also second his view that you've not quite nailed the actual purpose of the piece. For me, there's no suggestion that the cave is submerged in water and I think that's because it's neither dark enough and, more importantly, too much of the distance is in focus and visible. He's right that in water you'd see a lot less of the distance.

Cyangmou (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/20/2013 14:45

I know that these formations exist underwater too - i don't intended to say they don't exist. I meant if you'd recolor it it would look like a common cave, or if you'd have written it's some imaginative cave from another planet It'd also make perfect sense.

Another nice thing I forgot to mention is that your composition here is great. I really love how you implemented the picture spiral and especially how you used the stalactite and the column near the center to lead the eye to the midground rock formation

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/20/2013 13:48

 @Cyangmou I see what you mean with the colors and lighting, but the cave formations however can exist underwater.

BlazingBlyde (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/20/2013 12:30

Simply breathtaking. Great use of the rocks for framing.

MIERDINSKY (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/20/2013 10:45

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 2/20/2013 09:40

Great work.

Gecimen (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 2/20/2013 08:57


Elastico-Gadget (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 2/20/2013 08:54

Wow, the background has such a great chalk feeling to it. Well done !

Cyangmou (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/20/2013 08:31

really great pixelling here. I especially love the pencil-ish effect the ceiling of the cave has. 

Although I fear that it looks more like a recolored common cave instead of a water scenario. You can see very far (and water usually isn't that clear) and in terms of light red wavelenghts are absorbed in a depth of about 3 metres and yellow is absorbed in a depth of about 8 metres if there isn't a cave ceiling.

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 2/19/2013 22:09

I looove the pallete and the background effect. Very good work!
