    Updated WIP

    Decided to go ahead with the vertical composition. Added more elements to bring the eye towards the tower. Still lots more to do, not sure i've got the time between now and the deadline though.

    I love everybody's work thus far!!!! Honestly!

    since this topic was posted last week i;ve been trying to figure out what to do,
    its funny how most of us have the same ideas and decide to deviate from our first instinctive trail of thought, constantly evolving.

    so finally i started today, about 6+ hours so far, yeah i'm slow LOL

    Migsta cool!! That roof/canopy/sail on the right is a bit graphic compared to the painterly style of the rest but it's just my taste...

    Jamesy nice cartoony style

    I post my finished second entry just to have some feedback... (I like the concept in this one but design and execution are poor)

    revenebo: the palette shift is very sweet and the atmospheric perspective gives depth. You could push the statues at the back and the corridors end a bit more to lighter values using fog, but the overall effect is very good. Two notes:

    1. Try checking your values once every now and then using a black layer on saturation mode so that you actually see if your light sources are "actual" light. The sky is, but the lanterns(?) could use a little push towards white at their center.

    2. Using a single layer can simplify things and let you focus on painting vs management, but in your case having the statues on different layer than the background (or masking them) could help you achieve continuous flow to the cloud lines. Now your strokes seem to "hit the brake" before reaching the statue contour and kill depth a bit. I hope that made sense.

    unruhe: Great entry. Masterful color balance, especially with those easy-to- become-cheesy tones. But yours do not. The flow of the branches is fantastic. Only crit would be that you could give the image a tiny bit more space at the bottom, the centaur form would benefit from some more space, but that might be just me. What kind of brushes do you use?

    albino-Z thank you very much!! Your comments are always spot-on and very useful. I hope I have time to correct the second image.
    (btw, I actually use a desaturation adjustment layer to check values but I missed the lanterns part this time...)
    About my first entry I think I over-rendered it (as usual) and actually it looks a little like a collage.

    Adrian: There are a few issue with your piece atm, one is atmospheric depth, way too with objects and negative space in the background, and desaturate the sky, perhaps make it more of a grey colour, cuz remember the sky isn't always a bright blue, two that purple horseshoe just doesn't fit into the image as well, and three centralize a focal point and build around that, your image looks quite busy so nothing really stands out as a focal point.

    Awesome stuff the rest of you.

    Blankstate was kind enough to drop by my SB with a paintover of my wip so far, and so I pretty much gave my entry a total makeover cuz it gave me some more ideas of what I should do with my entry, still some issues here and there, but it's coming along.

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Smile New WIP

    Hey People!!! Heres another WIP update...
    Brightened the background and sharpened a few things up. Think the foreground may still be lacking.

    Albino-Z:
    Thank u for the feedback, its always nice to receive some input, after finishing a picture where one has been working on and staring at for hours, that could improve the picture a lot. Appreciate it.

    About the brushes, Its a combination of twitchfinger inkbrushes, custom mades and switching between the old/new photoshop brushsystem.
