A warm fortress.

Belonging not any royalty, but to people proud of their natural surroundings – for it was carved before them, for them.

The dreamiest of scenes are not always bright, but still vibrant. Mild, late ‘afternoon’ tones, but together still capture the viewer, encouraging you to ‘look around’.
Maybe here, their environment restrict blue light wavelength more than the others – perhaps why the afternoons are so gloriously red.

Project item:
Very fortunate to be able to use a non-stock-photo item in this digital composition. The 'bride' originally was from a bridal wear photoshoot by Karan Sarnaik - she was happy to let me use two photos in my experimentation with the vectoring technique.

This is really the beginning of something I will be diving deep into 2020, the mixing and merging of digital pixels with 'vectorized' objects to create a completely unique combination of digital 'texture', vibrant colouring and all together a very compelling science fantasy scene.

Looking closely you will see elements which are photo pixels, elements which are pure colour. The rest is what I've learned from previous photo manipulations and dreamscapes.


Additional Details:
  • 2900 x 4060 px, JPEG (8.5 MB)
  • This is a signed and limited edition digital creation.
    What does this mean?

Interesting effects that you have created here. To me it has an ancient Egyptian desert feel about it; maybe it's the hieroglyphs that do that. In terms of capturing the right feel with the waterfall, I think that you've achieved that. Water does take on the colours of its surroundings and how the light plays off of those.
In the full picture, the stairs lead me up to the cataract and then to the blue rock. I like this rock as it's unexpected; it jumps out at me and creates interest. You have chosen an interesting character to place in the foreground which fills that side of the artwork. She is well placed to complete the scene and add interest to an otherwise empty area of the picture.
