So long time no seen..
I got motivated to revisit my art thread.. So here is some of my newest work. I had done alot since the last post (see it in my gallery if interested)
Ofc I still want to improve, so here is it.. Somebody got some constructive feedback? :)
This piece I did for a friend to some cover art for his new track :)
Nice that you actually came back here, sorry for the late reply, seems like I missed when you bumped your thread.
As for the pic, I think the only thing it really lacks is some definition or I'd better say a more evenly distributed definition. For example the distant village and the closest, big rock are defined very well and you can see rather many small detail, while there are other parts like that pillar or pole in the right center, the characters body and above all his head that are undefined and kinda smudgy.
For my personal taste you could up the contrast even more. I mean add some brighter highlights, since the shadows seem dark enough already.
Since the light is coming from the huge planet, there should be some glow / light around those pillars and towers. It's basically backlighting where the center of an object is the darkest and it's lighter towards the edges.
All in all a nice piece. I hope you're not offended, but I have to ask. Did you paste parts of photos to get that rocky surface? Or is that a texture? I would be curious because it looks pretty good for the purpose.
