    brushes are just tools. It's what you do with them. I don't eliminate matte painting either, its how to get your idea across. (fair warnng, the matte painting better be damn good though...)

    Paradise is derived from a Persian word meaning a walled garden.
    And Chaos pulls me out of sweet slumber,,,

    Most interesting is that the Judeo-Christian story begins with God floating above the Deep.

    Hello all-

    Er, First post. I'm brand new at this! But it sounded like great fun. I don't have much skill at characters or scenes or art in general, but I figured this'd be a great way to challenge myself, force myself to get better, eh?

    Anyhow, thought I'd toss up my WIP before I headed off to bed and see what kind of reaction I could illicit.

    NEWBORN SPECIAL EDITION EOW! The Creation

    "In the beginning, there was a great, primordial stew full of amino acids and fishes and sunlight. A whale or a marsupial crawled up out of it. Or quite possibly an alligator."

    I decided to go with something rather traditional and not very fancy for my first try. Here's my primordial stew. Why do the Gods get all the credit? Darwin helped!

    A brand new world, scoured clean and ready for life to come pouring in. Well, animal life anyhow.

    It's twice the size of this thumbnail, and not anywhere close to done. I'd appreciate Constructive crit if you have it! Not much to comment on, but what do you think so far?



    Ah, Rabies, if you don't mind the crit, I'm not too keen on the great bright circles you've got there. I think the original was much more refined and pretty. : )

    Matej, I'd go with the second thumbnail. It looks like it could have so much potential! But that's just me!

    Time for a quick crit before bed methinks.

    Rabies: Nice idea, but the colours are a bit strong, too vibrant, maybe mess around with colour schemes and try to get them more similar to each other?

    Matejkovacic:I quite like the top left and bottom right thumbs, what's the idea of the top left? A godlike figure or a creation?

    MoonStruckDragonLass:Welcome to the forums! It's not bad actually, I think with a little bit of work you could pull this idea through. I particularly like the left side of the WIP, the tree and the rocky bit are well rendered for such an early WIP. Get the rest of the painting up to that standard and we'll see where you an take the idea from there huh?

    That's all for now guys, I'd enter but I'm looking for a decent Graphics tablet, and I'm more of a CHOW or POW guy anyway.

    Nice work all round, just keep at it!
