Week 5 of the Weekly Art Project. Somewhat inspired by the X-files. Digital photo manipulation and some digital brush work. Hope you enjoy.

Output size: 24 x 18 inches.
You can read more about this and the other instalments at my blog: www.chrisarlidge.com if you want to see the actual source images that are used to make these concoctions. :)

Photoshop, Bamboo Tablet, Canon G10 Powershot.

C&C welcome.

I like this. Colors are excellent and like the diagonal line. Light or glint reflection are great. But with the saucers and tree in foreground being soft/out of focus and the background trees have a crisp focus it creates that made up appearance (which I guess is the reality of your project). But all in all I really enjoy this one!

I'd quite like to eat those colours.

Thanks Katie :)

Just as a side note, I have ordered some prints of my weekly art through RedBubble, I am pretty curious to see how they turn out. When I get them in and framed perhaps I will post a few pics. :)
