Mix of photos and artrage painting.
Background is vectorised.
Painter has Picasso in his neck.
Heīs a bit stumped, what to paint next,
or to paint at all.

Hope its ok. to post such odd things.
I try this and that, and hope anytime
a noteworthy picture comes out. :roll:
Seems to be a long process.
Yes, itīs worth to do.

That is a cool collage of softwares and images.
I have to say my favorite parts are the palm trees. I am guessing those
are painted in AR. Still a very cool concept piece.

Thank You gzairborne.
I noticed, that its much easier for me to write down
some complicate ideas than to paint a simple picture.

Interesting concept! I like it. Experimental in the technique it looks like.
Very good thinking goes into your work. The concepts are strong.

I think you are after a naturalistic look, as if it exists in the real world. In that case there are couple things you could do to enhance that illusion.

You must decide on what is the most important part of this painting. If it's the room and architecture, then you want to minimize the attention to the paintings in part and let a couple of them carry the story. Some could be more in shadow as if you have more of a spotlight lighting condition. That makes it more about the dome with paintings in it.

If you want to show the paintings off, then you might want to perhaps have a few of them placed around the room on easels -- so that we get a good look at one at least. The size relations could be more interesting, I think.

And if they are to imply translucency where the light is hitting them from behind, then it might be good to darken the dome somewhat.

This is an amazingly difficult painting you've created. Bravo for the attempt.

There's so much going on that I would choose what I want to feature and have everything else fall back as a support for that. Strategic lighting could really serve you in this.

:D :D :D

Thank U D Akey for your advices.
Tried to play with dark and light.
Many details vanish but impression is better.

Didīnt want to paint fully realistic but elements and
emotions like in a dream. In my dreams (doīnt know yours)
are many "background" feelings and additionally like a spotlight
a special subject, a story or acting.

Good vibrations

Gave the picture a new meaning.
Its also the maximum of construction I can imagine.
But it does not really satisfy.

Think to retire for a while from pixel-painting
and better use a normal pencil with real subjects.

Thank You all for companionship with my "first tries"
using artrage. Think it lead me to a new level on the ledder,
back to the basics.
