I was thinking, for a few days, that the best idea concerning this tutorial would have been to explain the steps, one by one, the conventional way. But after a while i realised that there was probably not much to talk about, as the major interest of the image can be found in the three first steps. Afterwards, it is just a matter of fixing details, and working very simply on the image, in order to bring more visual elements to the piece, giving a more realistic aspect to the whole thing. In other words, my principal worry was, how could i escape from the abstract concepts that had helped me building the piece in the first place? I don't speak about it often, as it is a very difficult process to explain. But yes, concerning personal work, i tend to trust abstraction a lot, at first. from abstraction, realism can then come up. My goal will be to grab the elements away from these first abstract forms, give them a second life! Of course, i cannot use the same process for professional works, as for this particular case, have to decide everything by myself. abstraction is not welcomed. But for my personal art, my decisions may ary according to these very vague forms that i first organise on my blank electronic sheet.

What do we have here? At first, nothing else than a landscape, some abstract composition that took me 30 minutes to put in place. But at the same time, the image was already there, i just had to define things and make final choices, but nothing tremendous. Of course, the subject itself is not that original. Sorry for this, but i just can't help it, i love sci fi scenes, epic atmospheres from movie to symphonic compositions could bring tears to my eyes! On the other hand, i guess it comes from this tremendous jaleousy we could have towards the people who will observe, live and discover these unknown future worlds and technologies, even our children. My subconscious aim is to probably recreate these world before they exist, as being able to imagine the future is like forcing this same future to come to you. destiny doesn't exist, as we commonly say.

In order to begin from a piece with a bit more contrasts, i decided to grab an image i had previously done. Not for the image itself, but only for the black areas that could help me find interesting rhythms for a new composition. Weird process, but it is worth it. also, i never use anything else than created materials done by myself.

Here's the image i have added in overlay, for this piece.

Nothing more than a deserted landscape!
