    I'm a student just starting out with digital. This is my first piece so far. I feel that I'm okay with format and contrast, but I have trouble mapping shadows, rendering, and figuring out what to do with large blocks of color.
    I just need a general critique on this and some advice of refining my digital technique and style. Thanks!

    I dig it.. maybe not that much of an extreme title.. maybe 1/3 or a quarter of it, but yeah.. simple, crisp.. and has a enough detail it could be a post apocalyptic bombed out ruin or even some sort of wonky cave.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    I feel the image is lacking depth. Which is odd because if this scene was in real life, it would be depth central. Although this piece is more abstract; everything needs a purpose. You have a distinct foreground, midground, and background; yet they are competing with each other. Focus on the main element... the figure standing on the cliff and the interesting wires everywhere. Make a composition with that first...then add the scene in.

    Cool looking piece,

    I agree with limedarch. I think making the composition focus on the character would improve it. The patterns in the red are pretty cool; I suggest you try playing with colours that change the focus of the image while maintaining that stylised digital blocked look. Either going monochromatic and using lighter hues around the silhouette of the character, or doing a triadic or split complimentary pallete, and using the accent colour to accentuate the silhouette of the character.

    Hope that helps, Keep it up.
