Testing testing

Last image of the year...

Just a quick digital painting to try out a new texture that I scanned in. I'm pretty happy with the final look, and will probably use it so much that it will make most nauseous after a while.

I don't really know what this is, or what it's about. I have done a couple of similar images involving floating stone figures before (found elsewhere on this blog.) This stone is more abstract than the others. At one time, I had planned a series of these, but like a lot of ideas, I still haven't gotten around to it. One was a painting in acrylic for my friend's wedding, the other was a charcoal piece. I think this is part of that series, but maybe this is one of those figures in the midst of attaining its final form?

I sketched out at least four others. Those might be hidden on this blog as well.

Originally, I just put the robed alien there to give a sense of scale, but the more I look at it, the more I think he knows more than he's letting on. I'm not sure he's behind the formation of these large stone idols, but I think he knows who is...
