This is awesome. Great sense of depth. Hoo-rah! Push through and finish this guy! It'll be breath-taking! I love how you started with black and white and got your base values established too. : )
You have quite an interesting piece. The depth is great and the detail is coming along. I would suggest that you push the colors more. Do it as you worked the shapes and composition, work with big color strokes and refine later on. I see this as having potential of being truly majestic.
awesome dude .... just awesome
pretty sick dude. i dig it. great composition. just to be nitpicky, i wish the top bridge were painted differently. doesnt really match the rest of the piece.
Looking at how your painting evolved, I have to admit it's some real eyecandy. Love the smoke - too bad it aint finished though, you can still work on it later on perhaps? Anyways, still think you got a better shot at winning this ^^
nice colors and composition
one little thing I must say: the man on the cloud gives the scene the scale of the rest objects, but in this case I think his size comparing to the size of the bridge next to him is a little weird, looks like the both are in the same plane. I dont know if this is the right place for him.. Pay more attention on this
Very beautiful! Thank you for posting your w.i.ps for your piece, they are inspirational.. definitely stuff i'll add to my overgrowing collection of w.i.ps
If i might nitpick, the bright warms of the temple in the center does stand out a little too much, and if you could add some dirt there (perhaps a image texture) and bits at the rocks and bridge it would help. Just my opinion.
I'll latch at your sketchbook thread now! *click
