    Photoshop environment concept. Still working on toning down some of the foreground lights so your eye goes more to the creepy old buildings in the lake. Also would like to bring the trees to photoreal level with some textures, but don't have the time right now.

    All critiques are more than welcome

    Loved last piece, great contrast with colors and tones. Scene's mood is very cool too. I'd love to see some more on this line from you. Good job.

    I love your traditional drawings! The forms, shadows and lines look really nice. And they look more confident than the quick digital things. If you want to do something like speedpaintings, try to use more hard big brushes. That will be difficult in the beginning. But if you get used to it, it will be great!
    In the last work I miss structures on the rocks in the foreground. They look to artificial compared to the other parts of the picture

    Thanks, I actually spent a long while on the environment painting, the foreground objects are actually huge banyan like trees. This is the first digital environment painting I have done.

    I still need to add some photo textures to it to bring up the level of detail to the rest, but your comment is definitely pushing it up higher in my to do list.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I thought the background were something like a cave, washed out from the water from a big cliff.
    But I think, you should try to paint the structures with brushes. Photostructures are a bit dangerous. They look nice if they are good - but people will compare your skills to the photostructures and that will low rate your skills if you have not the level of realism as the photos have. Brushes make the thing more safety for you and you can learn a much if you get it right!

    But for your first digital environment this picture is really good!
