first time trying this - here's a wip. critique welcome
@ Sean mcClain- it is a nice thumb.a bit heavy on the chains maybe. also, the monster is a bit flat right now.
@hekatoncheir- oh, but its a very nice hallway, isnt it?I bit dangerous for running, with all the holes. but it looks great.
I have some issues with the lighting- I dont understand how the space works in the left and right sides due to that.
@xingdesign- hard isnt it im still struggling with it anyway. the way you put up the shot is interesting, but leaves you with very little space.
also, the perspective I can really read. it would seem the pillars are supposed to go on into the debths, but the figure reaches from the ground to stick out over it..
trying out some stuff to relay debth
my attempt, done in photoshop. techniques, critiques and tips much appreciated!

@hekatoncheir awesome painting! how do you usually start off ur work man? do u usually use a solid round brush for blocking then go in with palette knife with opacity? i really love the look of ur halls!
Thanks for pointing out the perspective issue
I'm calling this done.
I hope to finish this in time... Mine is a rather classical approach. Had a lot of fun, though.
Few photo references used
alright this is my final if I don't update again soon. Apollo's Run-- The ultimate track&field trial!
wutangclam: Actually made it as a model in sketchup, then did a paint over. It was much faster to have made it as a model than to paint it, I'll
promise you that.

hekatoncheir: I just want to point out what great improvement I'm seeing from you. Your last couple of enviros and characters are stellar! Keep it up!
'final' from me. Had to do some horrible corner cutting on this one I had expanded the canvas even wider but no time to paint the rest so some trees will have to do Now back to teh clientworks.
