    Tim - beautiful improvements.

    I've been putting a few hours into this painting. Still have a quite a bit of work to go on the ship (obviously), but I'm wondering if the colors and values could use some tweaking. I feel like I keep making the same mistakes when it comes to color, but I can't put my finger on it.

    Auden100 Pay attention to where you're putting saturation. For this type of composition only the nearest elements should be really bright,everything else get's washed out. With all the great detail you have toward the back of the boat the intensity was too high. Also the foreground fishing vessel needs to be more vibrant. Here's a quick adjust, I'm sure You'll take it a million times farther. Might I also Add that I love your painting so far. Plus your skill made this image really easy do color adjusting.

    Right, So I probably should take my own advice about saturation. Here's my actual final with thumb Included

    Auden: that's looking pretty good to me, take it further an im sure it will really start to show, as the other person said desaturation is one good way to show depth and highlight detail. Doing a depth of view type blur, like a "surface blur" on far away objects/past horizon might also give that affect, but i love where your goin with it!

    Here is an update on mine, fixed some perspective issues, started greyscaling, and messing with other stuff, coming along nice but i still feel something is wrong. maybe it's the design of the ship, or maybe something else. Any ideas guys?

    Hello All
    I hope that I have done this all correctly, the image itself is somewhat of an accomplishment for me (since I've never finished a piece.) I hope to contribute something every week so I can improve my skills by practical application.

    Your perspective is off, the whole left side of the image should probably be shunted down a bit :p. Get a grid on there, if you're using photoshop you can filter>vanishing point and construct one pretty quickly.

    You sure? its a 2 point perps, here is my grid-over, i see none that are majorly off, few that are just just very slightly off. I had an original grid but lost it due to layer merging. =(

    both vanishing points are off screen slightly as per my original thumbnail.

    Yay, the quality here is a bit insane for me, but here's my first attempt. Another trade morning in the port of Rhodes, getting back to normality after the day everything changed

    I was thinking about doing and airship harbor, but I guess many peeps thought about that,
    I ended up on deciding on a sorta asian inspired venice with small stream boats going into harbor/dock.

    Don't know if I'm gonna finish this

    Battousaii, I love this piece, I think you should give it a little more time just to tighten up the main focal point, maybe one of the ships, the image is great but one of the ships or your main subject would read better in focus, just a little so our eyes are drawn directly to it. I hope this helps.

    Wow good stuff here, love the diversity!

    Here's my wip1...and hell if I know how to color this thing!
    Since there is no atmosphere in space (obviously), I'm not even sure if the color becomes more desaturated with bigger distance,
    or objects just become less detailed. Plus the bounce light is a real bugger... curse you Universe!

    Look at colourful nebulas at gazillions of lightyears away, are they less saturated? There are no air particles in space, thus no sfumatto. Besides, nebulas rock! Put a big colourful nebula in your life, or in your background layer at least
