Owl's Eye by Smiling-Demon
Owl's Eye
Created for Desktopography 2015, the first time I have ever submitted something for it. Was a bit of fun as I haven't been making a huge amount recently. Hopefully will be able to get a few more things done for everyone soon!

Portal To The Depths of Space by Smiling-Demon
Portal To The Depths of Space
First in a little two part series for theluminarium's 26th release Depth. 

I was lucky enough to be the featured artist this time round and this piece was a featured piece! You can check out the full release here:…


This is a collaboration with ErikShoemaker who made the sexy portal you see in the middle. Also a big thanks to the guys at Lum who gave some great tips and ideas along the way, it wouldn't have got to this state without you guys!

You can see Erik's version here:


Release Note

For our 26th pack it was hard to decide where we wanted to go after our Silver anniversary. Themes associated with myths, fantasy, reality, travelling and literature came along. Eventually we dusted off our brushes, fired up our trustworty desktops and dove into the deep headfirst to proudly present to you our 26th Exhibition: DEPTH.

Peeling away the layers of the surface and seeing what's beneath, a talent inherently nested deep within our artists. It proved a difficult task to reach out to that talent and apply it on a composition and we as a collective are immensely proud of the effort that we have put in this body of work that show what is beneath and beyond.

Fitting our theme, we decided to highlight one of the most important cornerstones in The Luminarium. After 7 years and 25 exhibition we highlight the amazing effort our founder, Alastair Temple, has put in this group to make it the Luminarium that you see before you today. He spoke to Joeri for our featured interview. Finally, we'd like to thank everyone who supported us and we hope we can enlighten you once more with our 26th pack.

Brace yourself and go headfirst into "DEPTH"

I have 3 pieces in this release, and as you can see from the blurb above was lucky enough to be featured. A big thank you to everyone who has been part of the team for the last 7 years, helping me improve my art and making the whole thing worthwhile!

Alastair Temple
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United Kingdom
My name is Alastair, I'm a young Scot working as a fire engineer for Arup after completing an MEng at Edinburgh Univeristy. But besides my real profession I really enjoy creating things in my spare time, mostly photography and abstract 3D, and just about anything that may inspire someone to do the same.

I'm also the administrator for the international art collective The Luminarium
