    A picture of the game Journey.

    It's still in progress, I will add more details in the distance, define better the character and maybe push a bit the lighting.

    Any observations, criticisms or remarks on aspects that can be improved are very appreciated !

    Aaaah journey... wonderfull, amazing game...

    Your painting is very nice too, really nice mood but I feel you do not use enough bright colors. You should go for something more saturated and use the contrast a little more, currently you only have "two" values : the background and the foreground. The character do not stand out, some light falling on him would be really nice (where is his shadow by the way ? :p) The skyplane have more saturated colors, but as we saw them from the bottom, they should show some self-shadows. Plus you can add the shadows they will project on the floor to help the understanding of space.

    About the background, it's very very nice, but again it miss a lot of information about space and depth. Maybe you can try to make the road more apparent, make some buildings more saturated/darker to put them more forward. Every building is currently on the "same line" according to the values.

    Hope that can help you !

    Thank you for the critique ! it's very appreciated and helpful

    I agree with the points you brought. I am going for something more contrasted to give a more dramatic feel to the scene and I'm also changing the composition to give a better sense of depth. here is what it's looking now ^^
