The trees, animals, and buildings, etc. come from the AllSilhouettes.com vector clip art collections.
For example, the little giraffe comes from this collection: http://all-silhouettes.com/free-vector-animals/ and the big giraffe comes from this collection: http://all-silhouettes.com/vector-african-animals/ And you can see some of the trees come from this one: http://all-silhouettes.com/vector-trees-2/
yes that's right your links are correct.I guess that if it has not been rejected it's because i use vector librairies in a creative way and i don't base the design on it.This one was made at the same time that my first print on shirtwoot, Astral Ark.By reading your comment i have the feeling it was easy to achieve this, just had to download a couple of vector and smash it on a canvas, without thinking of it.So easy and fast.It was not the case, there are a lot of little details and scenes.I had to create a set of vector brush to complete the spatial gate, and tested a lot of stuff before beiing happy of the results.Then i had to fix details to keep it logical , in perspective,balance , shape, in a word, something realistic.So yes you're right i was lazy after 3 days on it, and used vector librairies for the animals,the trees, some buildings,characters and helicopters.
