i travel quite a bit since i work for United. I take to to really take in scenery and understand how it functions, lighting etc. i can draw it effortlessly, but to create it seems to give me isses. Maybe im thinking/creating process is wrong... i tend to try and see the whole picture before i have anything down.
The creative brain is like a dog. You can't force it to do what you want, you need to train it.
Just so you know, the conscious mind can only process 40 points of data at once. The subconscious can process 2 million points. It's a matter of building a relationship with the part of the brain you can't directly control. Feed it with info, consume wild ideas, practice technique, and see what your brain spits out. This takes a long time, so bare with it.
Other than that, there's not much more I can say. It's a strange process.
Did you know that there are conspiracy theorists out there who believe that the human race was created by an alien race called the Annunaki who came to Earth hundreds of thousands of years ago? .
These people believe that these aliens came, altered the genetics of the neanderthals they saw living here, made them into what we are now, and gave them the technology to build the pyramids and stuff .
Maybe ancient civilizations really DID have greater technology than we do . They did a lot of things that just can't be explained .
Your artwork is getting better and better man You improve really fast!
I'm also fond of this ancient technology concept. It opens up for so much questions and mystery. Overall, I think your picture is really well done. Still, it could use some spice. By that, I mean, that it looks a little flat. Maybe it would gain more depth by separating the middleground from the foreground by a little more perspective fog (If you squint your eyes, you'll see what I mean).
It also took me a while to realize the ship/megastructure in the middleground. I really like the hints of blue you've put there (and in the shadows) but I think you should have popped them a little bit more, to contrast the overall yellowness of the pic. Maybe the structure should have some more things to hint at its size (it is supposed to be enormous, right?). I think a perspective from below, looking up, would be beneficial for this structure's size.
To separate things even further, I would give the stone in the forgreound a slightly brighter edge, because it's mostly backlit, maybe even darken it a little more, because of this. Because right now, it looks a little bit like a paper cutout.
Just some messy scrambled thoughts, I hope this is somewhat helpful. If you like, I could spent and hour to write you a proper critique.
