    yeah, as its kind of an editorial style illustration that kind of thing is ok; rule of cool and all that.

    but single perspective is such a killer of images; no groups of objects share a single vanishing point except the walls of buildings really

    Thanks again for your fine, kind and helpful comments and advices!!

    Haha indeed the clouds are strange, they even partly looked like mirrored by a vertical line through the vp - don't even know how that could happen, but I surely have to correct it.

    Oh ya, both of you're right, Bette and Bopx, the motion blur on the bus still sucks, will have to change it too, I'll check both versions, without a motion blur and with a better version of motion blur. I think without the motion blur the perspective is fine as you Bopx said, but if I add a really speedy motion blur, you're probably right that the perspective of the bus will at least optically fade due to the speed, Bette.
    Nevertheless I definitively have to train motion blur, haha at least to fake some dynamics, which my images normally and unfortunately lack of.
    Didn't know what you meant by brush at first Bette, but when I saw it I had to laugh, it really looks like a brush or a yellow top of a Roman helmet.

    You're both totally right Chris and Kendall, so normally I also try to place the VP(s) off center and use at least two VPs, but somehow it worked best such way for this image ... but maybe this is just a result of my very small experience with interior and exterior spaces lol ... so have to train on it either.

    Thanks again to all of you and all the best!

    yeah i agree with VK, having everything parallel and perpendicular is very sterile (i have to say i'm pretty guilty of this atm) i think using perspective brushes don't help (i know you havn't used one here but just a warning to any reader) as the convenience to just follow the lines is overwhelmingly tempting you could have different perspective brushes saved on different layers and flip them on and off as to avoid visual harassment of bright multi- colour lines everywhere.

    Talib: if you where to experiment with thumbs (again in a parallel universe) then you could have the buss coming towards the viewer and add more depth and interest maybe.

    Ok so here is a new version, I'm still not sure on the motion blur, need more practice lol (as the clouds too of course :-)). Thanks again for your comments!

    I think seperate perspective grids are a nice, I did it more or less by feeling until now, so they are an easy way to check if it was a right feeling. For the next paintings I'll include a perspective grid layer then, to get it right from the beginning lol.
    Oh and ah yes, normally i try doing some thumbnails but will need to do this more consequently. Creating dynamic paintings is definitively a thing I'll have to practice a lot.

    Cheers and all the best

    I like it too. He looks so pissed off. What I'd really like to see is a before with a potential girl and after with what she's heading for.

    Thanks a lot Mrs Black Spot! Ah yes she is heading to the cityside looking for an easier and better life, which unfortunately rarely comes really true, as changing a nice countryside to concretes and lights don't only bring opportunities but also many risks. Hm, might be a real nice motif for an image, i'll check it out but first i've to finish the painings for students project before it starts to haunt me lol (in fact it already does :-/)

    Thanks again, sorry for my bad English, and all the best to you!

    This pic is awesome! I really like it and the concept is great too!

    I'm not sure if you overdid the movement lines, but it sure looks like a speedy bus lol. If you'd like to add more to that effect, maybe get some of those rose petals flying around (you know because of the wind produced by the bus). Also where I come from, smoke from buses is dark grey, almost black, not white. However the white smoke doesn't bother me much, just putting that out there.

    I'd say work more on those clouds, try to search some cloud tutorials, they look off to me.

    Btw I love the crops! They look great now

    Thanks a lot Lucky Charm for your very nice and helpful comment! Oh yes its a very fine idea to put some flying rose petals in, gives much more dynamic and charme and even realism, i'll definitively include some! You're absolutely right with the smoke, its normally much dirtier, I already tried to change it, but the contrast to the road was kind of fading so I let it white, although it shouldn't be like that. I was worried already that the clouds are still off lol, don't have much experience in painting them, so checking some cloud tutorials is a good suggestion.
    I'm kind of busy this week (sorry for the late answer too) so I probably won't be able to make the changes but I'll do them after the next weekend then. Thanks again and all the best!

    ...here is an updated version, hope you like it, thanks for all your comments and advices, which are still very appreciated :-). I think the clouds might be too prominent now - what do you think?
