Another painting from an old sketch... this could be the start of a new project, not sure yet

Update - Thanks for the kind crits everyone :) - I see these things as akin to the monolith of 2001, some inexplicable shapes with a mysterious origin, with the strange ability to levitate in a gravity influenced environment, - so they're craft, or beings, ambassadors from another dimension.

For those who would like to find them, they're believed to be hovering somewhere over the Pacific, as a land sighting has not been recorded. What is also certain is they are invisible to radar. Their drift pattern is said to be random, and mysteriously unaffected by the prevailing airstreams and currents. The last time the monoliths were spotted was recorded in 1786 by explorer Jean-Francois La Perouse, about 1200 kms East North East of Raiatea in the Polynesian archipelago, who sailed directly beneath them without trouble (though the crew was said to be in some distress). In 1952 a Russian fishing crew off the island of Ostrov Beringa claimed to have seen some strange hovering shapes that match the description, but the report was filed away, and is now believed to be destroyed along with millions of other documents during the collapse of the former Soviet Union.

The title "ambassadors" suggests that they'll at least be civil when they decide to devour us all.

Ha ha, cool concept!! ;) I wonder how one could make contact with these things?  I'd love to see what Jean-Francois's crew looked like when they caught sight of these Ambassadors.  I imagine the officers found it difficult to keep order, or were simply in too much distress themselves...

the scenes of distress are too distressing to paint, but, you've got the gist of it :)

Very interesting. There is a definite 'alien feel' to it. The box things are so unexpected and seemingly 'random' that it caries a definite other worldly mood. There's almost something 'hostile' to the stationary crafts. What could possible be controlling it? Very mysterious and very well done!
