Sailing The Desert by Gate-To-Nowhere Sailing The Desert by Gate-To-Nowhere
Now something surreal :)

Done in Photoshop and Terragen. I used a terragen-render for the dunes but the most part is done in Photoshop.

Resolutions:
1024x768
1280x960
1440x900

Wow, it became DD totay! Thanky so much!! :) That is a nice birthday present too :)

I was completely confused, when choosing an artwork from *Gate-To-Nowhere's gallery for a feature, but Sailing The Desert is one of her creations which is very special , and one of the masterpieces she has produced. Do checkout her absolutely stunning gallery! ( Featured by archanN )

Fabulous work! I like your style. :salute:
I'm starting a group called TheSailingClub for all things sea and boat related (being optimistic) and if it's approved, mind if I add this to it? :)

Sand Dunes

Sea waves are green and wet,
But up from where they die,
Rise others vaster yet,
And those are brown and dry.

They are the sea made land
To come at the fisher town,
And bury in solid sand
The men she could not drown.

She may know cove and cape,
But she does not know mankind
If by any change of shape,
She hopes to cut off mind.

Men left her a ship to sink:
They can leave her a hut as well;
And be but more free to think
For the one more cast-off shell.

So I just purchased a jet frame 24x36 inch print of this illustration. I hope it passes quality inspection, I can HARDLY WAIT to have this hanging on my wall. It is amazing and expressive, so surreal and dream-like. Just looking at it makes me feel as though I am someplace else.

Oh, I like this picture !! That remains me a wonderful French song, wait, hum...

"Je t'écris d'un désert où l'épave d'un bateau se souvient de la mer"... in English : "I write from a desert where the wreck of a boat remembers the sea..."
Well, it's a beautiful song... and I'm happy to have something to remains it to me here ! :)
