Been browsing for years but I'm only now mustering the guts to post!
I want this piece to be strong in a portfolio, but I feel I'm already off to a terrible start. Still fleshing everything out, but I want to stop and get opinions before progressing further. Is it weird asking for critique so early in?
My qualms thusfar:
I have been referencing Half Dome in Yosemite and pictures of shale for the mountains, but maybe it doesn't seem...mountainy enough. Also the mountains pushing into the middle ground/foreground are supposed to turn into rocky plains, but I can tell I'm already getting into problems with depth.
Any help with the figures is also appreciated. To me, they're beginning to look 2-dimensional already...but I haven't dug too far into rendering light and shadow yet either.
I dunno guys, it feels almost like one of those ones to scrap, and start over completely. I am just so frustrated!
