    Jonny Mustapha Art (moved from FF)

    Hey, been working on getting a portfolio for university and improving my skills, here is some of my stuff from the past year

    The first piece is a forgotten temple thing, I was inspired by some of the great Andreas Rocha pieces and wanted to try my hand at some fantasy environments. I learned alot from this one using custom brushes and getting a feeling of atmosphere with the colours.

    The second piece is an idea I had floating around in my head about a spaceport in a dessert/canyon. I didnt really have a clear focus with this piece which is why it looks like a mash up loads. Anyway I experimented with scale and perspective which has become very useful.

    Too many custom brushes and Photoshop filters. All of the pictures look unfinished and sloppy. There seems to be an extreme lack in values and definition, especially in the first picture. Why is the building in the first picture so ghostly and indistinct?

    Where did it ever say that Humpty Dumpty was an egg?

    See your point about them not being to a great standard, to be honest im still at the learning stage and was experimenting with brushes, ideas and colors. Good advise about the values aswell, going to try to add a bit of focus and definition to the next piece im doing, and will try to get the quality higher before submission

    Hey, whats up?

    The thumbnail looked quite good actually, but there are some things that need to be worked on, when veiwed close up, The atmospheric perspective and logical distribution of detail seems to be non exsistant. If I were you I'd consider exactly what you want the veiwer to look at in the composition,

    Also, I think you should do some studies of waterfalls and exsisting landscapes aswell.
    I think that these are more colour thumbnails more than anything. but I would redo these with some reference.

    I hope that helps a bit...=]
