Secluded observations by JackEavesArt Secluded observations by JackEavesArt

Process video (Kind of): [link]

This is the first final painting for my personal project for university. I have been working on the project for the past few weeks however i am focusing on the development process - meaning i have mostly just been sketching and exploring designs in line, so there hasn't been much to show until now.

The idea is that this hermit astronomer has taken over a dormant volcano - flooded it and built an observatory. Using the water source and rich soil he is fairly self sustainable over long periods and can observe the stars in peace.

Will post the development work shortly.

I was wondering if you could permit me to use this? :) I want to use it to personalize a Magic: The Gathering card. I would be very thankful if you could let me use it.

Beautiful job! I think the composition could be stronger if you moved the mountain more to the right and not make the waterfall the center of the image. Otherwise, the mood and color are great!

Thank you! Yeah you are right, the plan originally was to have the mountain centered so that i can play with it's silhouette and then trying to get the rest of the framing elements to still keep the composition interesting. But yes, if i was to do it again (or if i get the time to go back to it) i would certainly like the shift the mountain to the right and have it at more of an angle so it's not so face-on. Thanks for the feedback :)

Magnificent! But do you mean "astronomer" rather than "astrologist"? All pedantry on my part aside, this is amazing.
