Yeaaah, love the shadowy mood of this one! I spot a Harris-like electrical charge arcing through the internal structure? Interesting design of the small ships, liking the ghostly lit dish in the distance and star/lights look like orbs refracting inside the lens of a camera. Excellent!

Tahnk you my friend. Dark and moody is fun to do especially in 2.5 hours. More like a speed paint.

Thank you. Not bad for 2.5 hours work. Sometimes my best work comes quickly when I'm not fussing around.

Really nice detailing. The bright line in the middle draws the eye to the center of the pic, which makes for a great focal point.

My question is, was the pic meant to be that dark, or do I have my monitor badly calibrated?

Well, it's a PC with a LG Flatron W2042S. It's giving me calibration problems and the instructions on a calibration site I followed made it look awful (plus I didn't see some of the white squares it told me I was supposed to see). I was given a link to a much simpler calibration site where I simply matched the colour of the grey (I think) surrounding with a light grey box when I had my older monitor, but I lost the link. That one worked fine. I guess it's a hopeless case. I can't even raise the brightness by more than 5-10 points because the backlight is hurting my eyes.

Anyway, it's a matter too time consuming to waste your time with. I was just wondering if I should see something else than a couple of colourful dots in the top left part or detailing under the central part below the 'lava' line. Because to me it looks simply black. I see the spaceships and the details on them fine though.

The majority of the Gamut are greys and browns with some blue hue. Have a look at it on another monitor sometime if you get a chance. By the way, what you thought to be a lavaline my idea was a laser scanner from a nearby ship off view scanning the vessels hull. Anyway thankyou, hope you sort your monitor out ok.

Regards,

My current setting works okay for most purposes, I just wouldn't want to suggest the picture is too dark if the problem's with my monitor.
Oh, I figured it's something else, I just didn't have a clear name for it.
You're welcome and thanks as well.
