    Very effective thumbnail and colors, however, from my limited experience I would feel it requires more contrast, especially in the middle. I think theres a little too much atmosphere and it kind of flattens the whole image.

    Is the rooftop in the background or the characters your focus?

    If the characters are just there for scale, then make them less important and give some love to the buildings. There is nothing going on in the center of the image, so I would suggest cropping it so that the interesting silhouette of the temple is further down.

    Just want to open this very common idea for composition and depth. I know it's a very common way of showing a scene, but well... it's effective.

    This to me is the best composition from this thread so far. You changed it up a bit in the update.

    I totally agree with you Pavel. I was trying to get rid of a tangent with the road and the middle guy's head. I realize now I made him way to big and took away the depth of the figures. I also will look into trying to widen the picture again( Zelrik)... Ahh it always feels like Im taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back if you know what I mean

    Thanks J cart. I am going to scale him down slightly and put some rock moving him down a little and ill work on getting him a some more interest.

    I'm constantly drawn to the far left of the image now and off the page, maybe put something there to balance and redirect attention back in? Looking great though, I love your figures.
