Obviously, inspired by Avatar. Altough, I've never seen the whole movie :-)
Painting and composing were made in PS CS5

I have seen avatar and first let me say what i think of the film. Its plot is not that great and the reason i watched it was to see how the art style was. Honestly I was like why post this? All I see is just a photo from the film. Its nice to see something so beautiful and ascetically pleasing. I love the use of textures that give a warm feeling of peace. A simple concept yet complex in design. I give it 5/5 for technique.

The floating islands make the art so nice. There a simple concept yet complex at the same time. It has a Nice flow to it and is full of movement. You want to look at everything. The only problem is listed below. For that I give it a 4.5/5 for Vision.

The one thing that bothers me is that it looks like its out of the film. I know that its a good thing for a artiest to do but it takes out on originality. For the same reason it didn't leave a huge impact on me. I know I've seen something like this in the film. For the reason it's not a full copy give it 3.5/5 In originality. I give it 3/5 stars in impact for the fact someone painted this.

All in all i like this piece. It nice and something I would hang on my wall. Grouping the stars together I will say I give this piece 16/20.

Avatar's floating mountains were inspired from the novel Dragon Wing, Written by Margaert Weis and Tracy Hickman. Still this is great piece, good job

It looks great. Which avatar movie, the air bender or the one with aliens?

At first glance I thought it was from Avatar, but a closer look revealed the buildings in the hills.

 

That changed everything.

 

Very good job.

 

Reminds me of a some unusual D&D, Far East, Lost World, Adventure place.

 

Unless you can fly, getting to that place is going to be a definite challenge.
