    Enviro practice - any advice most welcome

    Been having a go at digital painting since Christmas to try and really improve my skills, this is the sixth digital painting I have attempted. I'm really trying to speed up my work flow as some people seem to be able to get an incredible amount of detail down in such a short space of time

    You need to tighten your details up quite a bit, they look pretty sloppy. I would say learn how to get the details right before learning to do them fast.

    I don't think the accuracy of the details is a real detriment to a piece like this. Were it an active city, then yes, but this looks like a run down manufacturing plant, so I think it works. However, for detail's sake, making the foremost tower more detailed that the background ones will help the composition.

    It is also important to realize that speed is not everything. Yes in this industry it is important, but doing things right is more important that doing them fast. I suggest that you work slower, get comfortable with the tools and media, and then work on speed.
    I think your on the right track.

    TheoryC - Thanks for your thoughts, detail is something I know needs sharpening up, I think I may need to use some more refined brushes? my current ones are very limited when it comes to details. Thanks for the advice anyway, appreciated.

    Duman - Thanks, I was worried with the structure in the foreground, if I over did the detail would it muddy the image, but I see your point. I'll take your point on about spending more time as well, best walk before I can run. Cheers for your thoughts, it's appreciated.

    this looks good, but a little bit more texture would be much better.

    perspecitve is off.

    Until you get the hang of doing perspective constructions try and not eye ball it.

    Also try and stay away from pure monocromatic colour schemes, they are easy but if you want to improve try and use real colour.
