voyage

stylized, digital illustration

I wanted to try my hand at a stylized sci-fi scene. There are some aspects that I am very happy with - the ship, for one. However, the overall finished product seems to be lacking. Maybe I am just too used to creating an image with some kind of emotional or disturbing element, but this seems a bit flat to me. Not flat as in color or contrast, but emotionally flat. Still, it was an educational exercise.
24in x 38.66in @ 150ppi.
