    Hey Mark, I'm liking the design of it, but I would suggest you add a few more layers to this. Some clouds in the sky, additional levels of white in the snow, a couple layers of blowing snow...maybe consider having something like ruins up on the mountain, or the hint of a trail? Nice painting techinques you got a'going there!

    I like the piece but the right side feels to...open in my opinion. Like the guy before me said, you could add some ruins, or something. It also leaves me wondering why they are marching into the side of a mountain. I don't know what I'm talking about though. =P
    Oh yeah, the animal he's riding is awesome.

    I would expect the caravan moving from right to left, instead of walking into the mountains like Moopuff said. The warrior and the animal are looking good.

    Peace

    I just think it's AWESOME, particularly the top image. On some distant star, there probably are creatures similar to that.

    peace out,

    Sean

    nice bear. caravan has their own reasons to head mountain. right side open, could add more things like the one bear is standing on, a bit lower.

    Very nice I agree with most of the pointers here, I do think you need to really DARKEN your darks and LIGHTEN your lights a bit more to full pull out the dept in your piece, the colours still seem very flat. Otherwise, it's really looking nice, remember to pay as much attention in detail to the background as the character.

    If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

    does that warrior know what he is doing?

    Most of the art you guys put out is above what I can do....so there's only certain things I can say that may help you out.

    Here is my try:
    OK, The warrior has straps going out to beast's horns so that he can control the head, thereby controlling the animal and the direction - like a horse. If the beast were intelligent, and him and the warrior were friends, or something, then the straps would not be needed. So, the animal has to be controlled. This being the case, it bothers me that he rode the beast so very,very close to edge....on rock....with snow on it. One wrong step from the beast, and off the cliff they go.

    Maybe you can add some to the ledge, along the side of them. It would make the scene more realistic.

    hey Mark,
    this is a very good piece. the snow and mountains are great.
    i took the liberty to make a small Gif for you showing what might make it better (in my opinion. you might take it or leave it, of course. ).
    hope you don`t mind, and hope it may help in a way.
    here goes:




    i might dabble with the colors as well, but that`s really not a big issue for this particular piece.

    keep it up, mate.

    Cheers,
    Pat.

    every picture tells a story

    Yes Mr M, I agree with you. I like the open valley better. I think that it communicates the theme of the picture better. I do like chuckmate‘s clouds better, but I don’t like the placement of them. I like your horizon. The horizon, the wide-open valley, and the people off in the distance work together to communicate the theme of the picture.

    I said that the ledge to the side of warrior and beast needed to be extended some. I still think that – but maybe that element implies the potential danger of the situation and the wrecklessness, or desperation, of the warrior…I don’t know. These artists here can give you much better advice about your work on a technical level than I can. And you know you need to listen to them, that’s why you came here, right? HOWEVER, don’t make adjustments that alter the…..story of the piece. Though they can give you excellent advice, only you know the story (….”bear”… - that illustrates my point).
