Phlegethon by taenaron Phlegethon by taenaron
Phlegethon

Bit of fantasy this time as I wanted some more possiblities and less restrictions regarding physics etc. You don't have to tell me that this scene is kinda unreal and not possible :) The image is not about reality but about a feeling I had. That is why it turned out the way it is :D

Whatever the scene is showing to you: it's right :la:

For some odd reason, I just can not write and
critique for this... I love how everything has been
put together and finished off.... There really isn't
anything for you to improve on because you are an
amazing artist with this kind of stuff. It takes real
skill to stay on one image for as long has you have for
a fair few of how images :) The unrealistic feel brings
out all these different scenes and images to the viewers
head about what could have happened :) I like this space art.
for one and two because you are an amazing artist :)

What can I say? Wow? It's amazing!

The colors, the movement, the composition, all of it just swoops me off my feet and into that planet. The artwork is quite engaging and it's astounding how much the color and shapes represent. The fiery trail shows such chaos and violence it feels almost as if they were going at super high speeds, frozen in time in this artwork. Then in the background, lies a cool and calm expanse of gas and stars that feel like they've stood still for eternity.

The only thing I wish could be edited is the small planet in the foreground. Imagine how this small world would be affected by this fiery and violent trail. Imagine its surface ripping to pieces and debris blowing off its surface. Though the small world provides a good compositional aspect, it feels a bit stagnant compared to its surrounding environment, almost stiff amidst the chaos.

Great job Taenaron, You've really hit the mark!

Phlehethon....I think that's a river from Greek mythology...yeah, the one that goes from the Underworld to Tartarus, that heals the monsters that are sent back into the pit, to hel them back to life or something...

You can't even tell what's happening, so how can anyone claim it's "not possible"?

Physics holds no precedence in the way of paradolic momentum. I like painting wherever the imagination takes my mind, visions chasing after my hand. I love paintings like this. Have you ever heard the expression 'Art is only the search. It is not the final form.'?

I've been a fan of your work for several years now. You're such an inspiration to me, seriously. I used to do space art all the time, and the person I looked up to the most for it was YOU. :P

Lovely piece, yet again. It kinda reminds me of the movie The Fantastic 4, 2. The part where Galactus is about to devour earth? Only more shiny and bright and happy looking :)

Love the fantastic elements! Reminds me of a sci-fi book I read once about machines and the creation of cylindrical ships that had land masses rotating around a central axis - written loooong before the Halo game series btw.
