Groundbreaking by alltelleringet Groundbreaking by alltelleringet
Let's go on a field trip, we have ground breaking technology!

I got this idea about a year ago, I had many thoughts on how to realize it but I didn't really know where to find a good location. In September I found the perfect place and dragged out an old boat on a field with the sun about to set in the horizon. I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

What's the first thing that comes to your mind? Where are they heading?

Coming from a fellow digital artist on the side, this is a brilliant piece. It captures the mind and essence and makes you feel warmth inside. Every little detail, the birds, the tiny lighthouse in the background, the shoreline, the lighting, the color, etc. is amazing.

The setting is just right for the 2 dreamers heading to their next destination. Where that might be, leads one to only imagine what is before them and what is to come.

And who knows what the woman is thinking as she gazes upon the landscape. Maybe, perhaps, as I look upon the beauty of nature myself, how magnificent and vast this world is.
What do you think?

I can't do anything nearly as well as you do. You have done only amazing work.

I may be wrong, but the shadow of the boat and passengers looks a bit off to the left from the lightsource. But its hard to tell.

I only say this because the shadow of the rock by the right oar, and then the shrub at the tip of the boat have shadows going almost straight down. Then the rocks at bottom middle have matching shadows to the boat.

Since this was made with a compilation of photos, its nearly impossible to sync up perfectly. You have done far better than I've seen.

Man I wish I was this good. You have a talent for merging photos and making them look like they belong together. Good job sir.

Heading to the sea to see what they can see.  Heading to the ocean.  He has a funny notion.  How about heading down the river?  Their hearts all aquiver.  They're lost in this vast land.  It's futile rowing in the sand.

You make me imagine about the rivers in my country, Viet Nam. Some of them have a thick duckweeds and when the boats drifting in the river, the scence is same like this art.

I really like this, very creative and something I've never seen anything quite like before. :) And the first thing that came to my mind was...well, I can't imagine they're going very far very fast. :D Anyway, great job!

they are heading to the sea, where the boat would be more useful, and the man less tired of rowing :D

I love that they both looked relaxed and just enjoying their day, like they are so into their time together that they dont realize they've drifted off the path (or have they...?).

Very cool. The lighting is great and the concept is fantastic in the way of fantasy novels' nonsense as in such literary works as Through The Looking Glass. I love the fantastical idea of rowing a boat on land, which makes me a bit partial to this piece. I do love things that don't have to make sense.

Riktigt bra bild! Såg ett youtube-klipp med dig från TED och det var inspirerande! Sen såg jag dig här på deviant-art av en slump.

Du har verkligen genomtänkta idéer och väldigt genomarbetade bilder. Väldigt bra bild. :)

I'm always curious, do you write down ideas and try to execute them later? Have you also revisited ideas that you previously couldn't attempt?

You always do a phenomenal job in my opinion, along with this piece as to how you have the details of the dug up earth from previous rowing to the correct lighting and shadow placement. Can't wait for your next pieces :la:
