Alien Landing

I had another go at some ancient rock shrines in Mahabalipuram (my first try was here):

This one looks sort of brutal and cartoonish, as though the shrine nearest to the viewer were actually an alien deathray, trying to disguise itself as its neighbour. I should have worked on it more (a cloud or two might have been nice), but I got fed up. If I try this subject again, I think I'll try to do it as if I were the alien.

That nice green grass is imaginary: actually there's a bit of grass and a lot of sand, and litter and traces of shit, human and animal. If it were my deathray I would have kept the environs tidier.
