Daily Deviation

Given 2014-10-08
The Portal Of Sagittarius by Shue13 is absolutely stunning with its brilliant use of light and great choice of stock. The artist becomes a storyteller with this detailed and fascinating scene! ( Suggested by KeinZantezuken and Featured by Aeirmid )
:iconzeromklx:
This is a great picture you've got here. The lighting is a little odd, but I understand that there is a giant beam of light going into the sky. I'm just saying that the lighting is a little red on some areas when they should be the same color as the beam itself. As for the design of the structure, it's beautiful! I can't think of anything wrong with it other than, if the portal is also some sort of fortress, add a front door so that non flight-based creatures could enter. Unless there really is one and I'm not seeing it behind the beam of light. The only real problem I have though, is the atmosphere. It's kind of dark, and alot of movies in this generation have that typical, dark atmosphere. It just doesn't catch my eye unlike the portal. Maybe you could make the light of the beam shine on the surface of the mountains in the background so it doesn't have that movie-like darkness. I'm not saying you should detail every tree on those mountains with yellow light, just enough to where it catches the eye some more. But overall, good job.

For this work I think of a war, a war between angles and demons where one solitude winged figure is scouting around the fortress of their enemy, trying to perceive what they are exactly up to. This work tells a story and I believe that the focus of that story lies in the contrast between the winged figure and the fortress through colors and form. The winged figure is subtly portrayed clad in gold and blue whereas the fortress/tower is predominately black red and hues of orange. A crackling energy originates from it's base, it's sharp piercing shapes and colors instantly makes myself associate this structure as being inherently evil. Saying this however the structure reminds me of the tower of sorcery (Minas Morgul) as portrayed in peter Jackson's the Lord of the Rings the Return of the King as well as bearing striking similarities to the structures found in Oblivion in the video game Elder Scrolls iv. I find the work to be unoriginal, I would like to stress however that this does not take away the beauty of the image and that in today's art world inspiration is not a crime.

The artist has clearly put a lot of effort and thought into this composition. the artist has painstakingly composed the different elements of this image perfectly. The most striking feature however is the sense of depth the artist as given this work, from the out of focus foreground layers to the distant fading structures, it truly makes this feel like a grand scene from a blockbuster film. If I were forced to find a fault (In my opinion) within this image, I would defiantly choose the atmosphere. As it is now the image is great. Molto Bene! However I believe that there should be more of an interaction between the tower and the atmosphere, perhaps a more prominent faint red highlight caste from the energy at the center of the tower onto the clouds to put emphasis on the amount of energy.

All in all this is without a doubt, one grand, fantastical work, that is a great re-interpretation of the 'evil tower' cliche.

The graphics of the image look in certain places, especially the sky, like a medieval oil painting (one of the good ones).

On the backstory: Kinda some what similar to a sci-fan setting i've been working on for a while. The point of coalition is the portal, though in my setting the portals link a number of worlds (a portal will link to another world that it is aligned with; which changes all the time, as the world spins, and the seasons change. The whole issue is rather complicated and is best left of the the Archons of the Alabaster Towers to contemplate.)

The Universal Clock is a major theme that runs through many aspects of the setting.
