cool update meng, I'm not gonna let you off easy though. The composition on June 18th looked better, If you would have kept the same lighting but tightened up the details it would have made it much stronger as opposed to adding more and more lights and details. The thing that did improve by adding more was the two figures in the foreground, and if they're supposed to be adults, they're out of proportion. Utilize your polygonal lasso tool more when you're working on that architecture in the middle ground, it lacks some strength because the buildings feel floppy.
I think it's just a natural thing that happens when you start spending a certain amount of hours on any painting, it's not always better to add more. I think I did something similar recently, spending too much time adding more and more and more, not always the best move but yeah, it's a cool piece.
Love those environments Dile, and I mean LOVE them... nothing for me to crit really, other than perhaps work a little more on getting a strong sense of perspective. As others have said, The mid-ground could do with a bit more solidity, and sometimes throwing in a clear suggestion of a vanishing point in the distance can really help. Anyway, congratulations on this one because its excellent.
I have a brand new website! Please check it out and let me know what you think! I've had great a great response on it so far, but I'm still open to changing things up if I find it helpful to the overal feel of it
Heres a bunch of stuff.. I can't even explain how much art i've done lately. But anyway, I should let my art in 2-3 months (or so) speak for that, and not those boring words
I usually don't draw horses. Was fun :] will do more. I did some horse studies too..but they are on paper : ( I will make some digital too, just to show how fun it is to draw horses My new guilty pleasure.
I need to simplify shapes more and do more thumbnails..This was a good way to find out how NOT to do it
Here is something, not particularly detailed. But perhaps useful to someone out there.... D: These are some of the things I think of when I paint environments and an easy "check list" (even though my rough speedpaint didn't really cut it) to have...kinda
