Coming Into Being by TheMichaelMacRae Coming Into Being by TheMichaelMacRae
The forest lay parallel to the ground as a mesh of splintered pines and birch greyed from age and ash leaving the entrance exposed for all to see. There he stepped alone from the iron doors tucked into the rock just so, and there alone he took his first strides into the re-incarnated landscape with his purpose as of yet undefined.


----
this one's a little bland but there are parts of it I like. His bottom half is a bit dodgy, something to work on in the future

Also the sense of perspective seems off now that I look at it. Those doors are supposed to be pretty big. Oh well...

Cheers!

This reminds me somewhat of the film adaptation of "Under The Skin" by Michael Faber.

Great as always, I love cold atmosphere in your drawings. It's realistic but yet amazing to look at

You did a great job! I'm wondering why all the trees are knocked down neatly like that.
Still I love it! Looking forward to him and the one machine girl being drawn soon!

I really like this piece, as it's close to an idea I've been mulling over for quite some time.  You captured a sense of mystery and curiosity very well.

About the scale, i think the problem is that you have very small trees in the foreground, no middle ground reference, and a background with trees of undetermined scale.  Then you see the foreground trunks, and assume that the ones in the background are the same size, meaning that the door looks tiny.  If you make the trunk in the bottom right huge and going out of the scene and add some large trees in between the character and the door you'll give a sense of scale for the doors.

Looks really cool! I think what makes the perspective not work as you planned is the ground. We see a bit too much of it.
Can't wait for more paintings from this series. I love the story you're telling!

The trees somehow remind me of the Tunguska incident.

Nice work. ;)
