    I am in on this as well. I've got some thumbnails going already. I'll post them when I get home.

    I like the initial sketch up Flame. Good balance across the image. One thing that kind of jumped out at me first (and I may be TOTALLY wrong about this considering I am a noob myself) was the side plane of that floating pod seems to have the same treatment as the side plane of the distant floor in the background; but each seem to be on different eye levels, so I think they may be conflicting with one another? Again, I may be wrong, but I figured I'd ask anyways because I am sure there is a good lesson at hand either way.

    Good start!

    Some thumbnail sketch ideas. I am either going to go with #2 or #4.

    So, this is my WIP. I decided to try out #2 first. I may give #4 a try too because I really need the practice...I may go for a night time vibe with that one...though, I have no idea how to do that exactly

    Please, toss any critiques my way, I need the help. Those little red/burgundy blobs on the foremost tree are going to end up being little houses to establish the "tree house" theme.

    Here is a WIP of the night time version of #4. I think I am choosing my colors with too much saturation I only put about 45 min into this one getting it set up and colors/values laid in. I need to gather some reference for this one because I have no idea how to paint night time values and hues. The little orange dots are the lights of the "tree house(s)".

    I am not an environment artist but this topic sounded interesting and I thought I might lurk and add some critique. Please take everything I say with a grain of salt, I only wish to help better everyone on their process.

    Flame Unquenchable -I like the initial concept very unique outlook on the topic. My critique would be to maybe add in more of a foreground element even if it's in silhouette or show us some vague distance to give us a sense of the world it's in. I'm very excited to see where you take this!

    Syle -I like your first pic better than the second but, I think you might consider combining the two a bit by making the first into a nighttime scene. If you make the "houses" a little more prevalent on the trees and make them glow I think this could be really great. I agree with your assessment of too much saturation on the second one. My advice would be to maybe try an overlay layer on the first in a muted/dark blue and see how it turns out. You can play with the color of it and that might help set the mood a little more realistically. Good luck, i'll be keeping an eye on these!

    Syle - Thanks for the crits, I intended initially for the stairs and 'bridge' to be on the same plane but it got pushed backwards so I'm in the process of fixing it.

    Princess - Thanks for the kind words and the suggestion. I intend to add more of the forest in the background, and try to build up a scene for this tree house to sit in.

    Another sketchy drawing of some 'pendant houses' that I may try to incorporate into the previous drawing.

    @Flame: I personally am not diggin the current drawing you posted, it looks way too flat, but I do think if you were to have these houses dangling off off the tree a bit more, and enlarge them, you could have them sort of like lights, and have them illuminate the scene like chinese lanters.

    You're not liking the pendant houses, or my first post? Just for clarification the pendant houses I want to do as a backdrop to my previous thumb to try and add some background. But you're right they're looking flat, I will change that when I add them to the main drawing.

    I'm glad we're on the same page about drop lighting and lanterns though, I was thinking that exactly!

    Hi. Really cool topic, I wanted to post a wip by now but still sorting out basic forms and getting references. So for now here is a quick concept sketch to show my thoughts. Its an early warning station designed to be fixed to tall trees and blend into their canopies. Will spend the weekend modelling to figure out the composition and perspective.
