Same environment with opposite moods

These look like you have used reference that was pieced together either from a photo or 3d model and then added to in a paint program and because of that they lack cohesiveness. The night scene suffers from a lack of follow through. The reflections from the lights do not match the lights or waves at all. If you are going to use photos or models for the basis of your painting you really have to spend some time with them to make them integrated as a whole into the scene.
There is nothing wrong with reference as a basis for a painting or painting right on a plate if it is your photo, but you have to follow through so that the photo and painted parts are seemless. Right now that doesn't seem to be the case.

That's where I want to live. I don't know shit about concept art but those are some excellent renderings.

dpaint, zero reference photo, 100% imagination.

Okay, I stand corrected, but it still doesn't change the fact that in the night scene especially, the reflections don't sit on the water or mimic the lights themselves. The daylight scene is less so but still the water doesn't interact with the poles and building. these things distract from the success of the images.

lovely, I admire your perspective drawing skills. I hate perspective. HATE IT!!!!!!! >:]

i do like the first one u did, but the one at night, the lights in the water, it could help to add some smudges. :)

Awesome paintings man, although I'd say that the night scene could do with some contrasting light sources. Good job though on the whole.

Great job. Nice discovery. My favorite is the second one.

Cool. Great colours in the first one. I like it

The picture seems like it has undergone a retouch,so to add more beauty it has decorated some modern materials.Nice look.

Really nice !...I do not agree with dpaint...I find them really evocative and well rendered...yes probably the reflections don't match exactly but I think you have reached the goal...keep up!

You're right - my apologies - I made a snarky, personal comment there. Won't happen again.

I appreciate that JeffX99. I apologize for getting snarky and rude as well.

No worries Mike - these things happen sometimes. You've got some solid work - keep at it!

I'm loving your work and am hoping to to some rough, very rough, sketches from them. Keep up the good work though!

f*ckin love 'em!
this is the entertainment design forum, not the anal illustrators forum...
real nice bro, great sense of mood and feeling with excellent volume in your painting.
is there more?

Can't see the pics from january 15 th :/

these are great renderings.
If I were to nitpick, I would say that the first pic, top of the cathedral could do some straightening (seems to be tilting a bit too much to the right).
I would also say that your pieces are very very centered, which typically doesn't make for good composition. Esp. the first piece, in which the eye just stops right after the building with a big blank space to the left.

I think an abandoned cathedral at sea would be an awesome place to throw a party!
