This image is a beautiful example of artwork that is as enjoyable to look at as it is inspiring to other artists.

It delivers a powerful image of aloneness in a cold and dark hostile world while still preserving the beauty of an alien realm. You feel as if there is a story to be told here and that you want to know more about the person in the image as they journey across this hellish, foreign landscape. Why are they there? What are they doing? Are they looking for someone?

The attention to detail is astounding with accurate lighting, intimidating rock formations and clouds that gently float by all give this piece a feeling of being alive and almost real. It is evident that many hours have gone into making this piece but the emotion and inspiration it gives the viewer will last much longer.

You can almost feel the cold coming from this icy world.

The feeling that comes from this can be described in MANY words!
Colour is very rich, much detail has been put into it, i can see you took much time to perfect this, and i love the result.

If you could maybe highlight the guy with the torch, i think it would that extra little bit of detail and feel to the drawing. You can almost feel whats happening in front of you, as if something is going to happen. It's keeping you waiting for that moment...

Overall, this would definitely be a favorite of mine, i would hang this in a place where i can see it every day. I have to say a job well done!

This is probably one of my favourite GTGraphics Pictures. I really like the jagged mountain looking rocks. It combines two of some of my favourite things; space and mountains. I love the mysteriousness in it.

The backdrop has a mind bending quality about it, perhaps because of the angle of those pointing peaks. Looking at this I get a sense of space, mystery and adventure. Even though it looks dark and cold, it does not seem scary to me...but something purposeful or hopeful emanates from the character and his flash light.

This is a very thought provoking piece...great to see.
