    Hey hilding, this is impressive. Number one for me..
    Just one thing - the light is looking like if there was its source right behind the corner. I suggest to remove some of the beams which point to the viewer through the pillars.... I hope you see my point.

    hilding - have to agree w merlin about those upward beams at the top right. the light through that area was more effective as just a bright rectangle. the only other thing that gives me pause is those trees they look rather deciduous and er, leafy. you might want to make them more sparse or nix them completely because they feel too normal and detract from the mood. aside from that though, gorgeous. like the statue a lot.

    (i'm new here though, so take my crit with a grain of salt!)

    hilding, if the sun is visible and shining directly through the pillars, the beams are fine (reference any "light shining through the trees" picture ever). I think it's just a matter of preference as to where the light is coming from.

    That being said, the "leaves on the trees" comment I can't argue with.

    Beautiful work.

    Hilding that looks great! Way to separate the warms and the cools! The first thing that jumps out at me is the perspective is off on some of the buildings, particularly the faces on the building to our right.

    Here's the direction I'm going. Let me know what you think!

    Hilding, turned out nice. The statue definitely helps solve the problem I had with the light and fills up the foreground a bit along with the figures. Now that it's mentioned I have to agree with the perspective on the face of the right-most building (the triangle roof above the pillars is the issue), but overall you've got a strong piece there. It feels a lil' less apocalyptic as you said, but "apocalypse" isn't necessarily part of the challenge so I think it's all for the better.

    Earendil, neat concept so far. The length of the bridge feels a bit like a "dead" space, very little going on except leading the eye from the city to the car or vice versa. Maybe adding an object of interest on or under the bridge or shortening the bridge may help.

    Noa K, looking better. The latest one with the clouds could turn out well, but I think the lighting on the rest of the landscape would need some reworking to compensate.

    Siae, have you tried looking up some reference? When in doubt, check out the real thing. Google Image Search is a godsend for reference. The colors seem okay, although it's kinda half 'n' half between blues and greens... you might wanna try making one or the other dominant.

    A'ight, here's my final. I painted it yesterday evening and I photographed it this afternoon. The horizon is a bit slanted (shame I only noticed today) and I'm not very happy with the figure (it feels very stiff compared to my thumbnail, I definitely lost a lot of the action there), but I don't have time for another so I've gotta stick with what I've got. :)

    Final piece is on 14" x 20" cold press 140 lbs Arches watercolor paper. Paints used are M.Graham brand, Anthraquinone Blue, Azo Orange, Ivory Black, Phthalocyanine Blue, Phthalocyanine Green.

    artzealot - very nice, the fantastical element and lighting appeals to me!

    dvargas - your concept and lighting scheme comes across clearly, but watch there isn't too much uniformity in the natural formations; digital brushes do tend to unify the shapes too much

    eddieee - the composition could still use more room: experiment with eliminating some of the mountain and let even more sky in?

    noa k - i feel your composition is dominated by the form on the left too much for the level of interest it is providing. Using the glaciers as a frame and darkening the sky is good, but be bolder and experiment ..your hue amd value gradations are looking too photoshop perfect, if that makes sense

    khell - i love the foreground elements; the bridge thing is very cool. I would watch the perspective on that rear block of buildings - I think the implied horizon lines are conflicting with the foreground. And I think the value structure of the background glacial cliff needs more definition - more, er, cliff-y (strong verticals/stronger outline against the sky perhaps)


    I put this away for a few days then worked it up some more. I'm probably approaching the final version here..

    Great work. I feel spring is coming.
    Noa K: Nice painting. I like it. I think you can work out the shapes on the ice a bit. Perhaps look at some refers pictures.
    audit: Very nice
    khell: Good work. I think you can add a little more contrasts in the buildings.For example brighter roofs and maybe some highlights.
    ArtZealot: Wonderful light.
    Anid Maro: Nice watercolour very graphic.
    Earendil's: Great start. God depth
    dVargas: Nice dramatic scene. Maybe the big shadow indicates that the sun is high above the horizon wile the sky is bright in the lower part indicating a sun low above the horizon. Have you tried the sky solid blue.
    Eddieee: Nice . Beautiful scene. Perhaps you can define more where the light coming from and work more on the shapes of the mountains.
    Grimstitch:I like your piece. You got your light source. I think you should work out the shadows it produces perhaps have the foreground darker or in slightly another colour value.
    xabian: Good! Maybe add some more contrast and perhaps some people.
    siae: I like your peace. Perhaps you can do some nice details in the foreground vegetation.
    merl1n: Very nice. Beautiful scene. I wish to bee there.
    no_name_brand: Nice light and very epic.
    hilding: Great. I love the crowd. Really storytelling. Beautiful colours. There has been a lot of suggestions about the sun beams. I think it is much a personal taste. I can think of
    them coming straight from the right almost parallel to the ground.
    M-Studios: Nice painting and exiting scene. Perhaps the objects near the viewer could bee a bit darker particularly towards the viewer.
    I like the little stream Maybe it can follow the perspective in the cave a bit more in regard to shape and colour.
    Ramza:Great
    Parsakoira: Beautiful exposition of spring and melting snow.
    Sorry if I left critting someone.

    Yea, i think you may be right. I keep eyeballing it, but if others are noticing, that should probably be fixed. thx.

    Hi and thanks. I see what you mean.
    I missed that. My intention was to have the icicles pictured from above but I didn't turn out naturally and definitely not matching the perspective of the background.

    JanJager, I'd reconsider that motion blur. I believe it's a bit too artificial and it's hurting the image instead of helping it.

    An outside host means exactly that - an image host that's not Conceptart.org. Instead of adding the thumbnail with the attachment manager you have to host it on another site (your private domain, photobucket, (both recommended) or imageshack for instance).
    The full image gets added with the attachment manager, however.

    After you uploaded the thumbnail somewhere, you simply add the [IMG] [/IMG] around it and you're done
