I may very well be judging a little fast here, but I would say I am a little unsure if this is the way to go. Even though it looks smooth and impressive then I think it looses some of that trademark laserkarlistic play with the colors in the light and shadows. It's a nice picture though.

Thanks man!

This isnt really a style I want to work with, its more of a training-thing. I need to be able to do the hyper-detailed stuff if I'm gonna work with 2d though, which i might end up doing in a couple of years if I don't become a 3d animator. I really hope I don't have to do that though. I wanna have the painting-bit as a hobby. :)

Sand dunes in the background, troopers for the foreground.
This image is giving me a big Starship Troopers vibe.

Did a new piece.

I'm very torn on this piece.
It's well painted, but I feel like the composition takes away from the image. My eyes are immediately drawn to the black mass in the middle of water, and they pretty much get stuck there. It's unfortunate since that part isn't nearly as rendered out or as interesting of a thing to look at as the guy, who I'm pretty sure was meant to be the focal point.

I don't know. It might just be me, but I personally think the composition would benefit if you trimmed down the bottom part a little more.

Thank you, nice input!

I personaly feel the risk of him not finding land is whats interesting in this image, and thats how i painted it. It's about whats going on beneath the surface. The vastness of the unkown, rather than a guy on a raft. :)
