    landscape WIP

    Hey guys,

    Just started this landscape last night. Looking for some crits to improve it before I move forward. Feel free to rip into any issues it may have. I can handle it...

    Here's a post I made in another user's wip thread. Most of it is applicable to your painting too.

    Thanks. I actually did start out a lot like that but then added all the things you say to not do mid way through the process... So I guess I'm not sure where to go once I've determined the light source and blocked in most of the shapes...

    So the big "thing" at the top of the stairs is leaning to the left. Everything is brown, the picture needs some hue variation either in the sky or the rock/structure. The right edge is weirdly cramped and suffers from the same leaning problem. It's hard for me to get a feel for the material because the spec detail is low, the texture is smooth and few dark grey shadows.

    Thanks. I will try doing some different views and light and whatnot. I have done some landscape photo studies in the past but was just hoping to put down something of my own instead of copying a photo again. I can see how they would be helpful tho.

    Heres what I was doing just now. Is this where I should be before I start doing detail? Should I be making this even less detailed than it is?

    Thanks again for the help.

    I'm gonna try some other angles and whatnot when I get home but just wanted to try a bit of a paintover of the current composition. What do you guys think? right direction or wrong direction?

    So heres where I'm at with this. Took away the cave. It does make the structure look bigger for sure. My original idea was to have a character be walking out of the cave towards the door. I guess I could still do that minus the cave.

    I dunno.. maybe I should just start over and try a new composition. I'll see how I feel in the morning.

    Any comments welcome.
