Hideaway in Dinotopia


Here’s where you want to be safely ensconsed during the pandemic. There's plenty of food, board games, puppets, and musical instruments. From Dinotopia: Journey To Chandara.

My first thought seeing this piece. It's such a technically superb work. Well done, James.

Experts recommend social distancing to mitigate the spread of Coronavirus. That's six feet between humans and 75 feet between Brontosauruses. ;)

Beautiful rendering of snow. Coincidentally I had just been searching snow paintings and of course you have covered it many times. Isn't it interesting how images can have new meanings depending on what our experience brings to it?

This is an especially masterful handling of light and atmosphere! And that's saying quite a bit considering your impressive body of work, James. Something about the light hitting the domes, in particular, evoked so many memories of the feeling of being warm and safe in the midst of a winter's snow. Thanks for sharing. It's just the sort of cozy feeling that we need to remind us that being indoors isn't the worst thing in the world.

After studying this I noticed that you even captured the light that was reflected back into the ridges to make the shadow lighter than the cast shadow. These are the ridges just to the right of the little outpost building on the left. Thanks for the escape.
