i know you'll probably end up hating my reviews haha :D but in this particular image, the houses on the right hand side, you obviously took a image of a house then worked off that image to redesign it into your own him right? because the top section of the roof still has corrugated tin roof and the peak on the right hand side of the roof still has the wall texure n window in it :D i would suggest if you going to use the images for reference perhaps consider removing them after doing your work, now that i've picked out the faults.. to the good stuff

your lighting in this image is really well done, your lack of detail yet when you look at the image as a grand scheme of thing and just sit back and observe its extremely well done, you think the man for example is wearing a coat n a hood but is only 6 lines, that to me is amazing theres a few scratch marks almost in the center above the guys head im not sure about, they dont seem to fit, the building in the distance is really well done, again the lighting and shadow there are very well done..

It is awesome to get an constructive review so please keep them coming! To answer your question, the house on the right was first painted, and then I applied texture using photos. But I do agree with you , I did do a pretty poor job. xD Ill keep that in mind in future work!

This scene really stands out- well portrayed and the natural environment comes across as very natural in structure. The scale of the buildings- especially the background tower- shows the scale of the location, and the relationship between the foreground figure, the buildings and environment. The tower, while feeling just a bit out of place, really does project power and dominion over the surrounding land. Keep it all up.

SkyrisDesign responds:

Thanks :D! Check out Chapter 2 while your at it!

good job :)

SkyrisDesign responds:

ty :D check out part 2!

Absolutely amazing painting! The difference in scale from foreground to background, especially with the character, adds a sense of looming suspense, and the detail of the background is astonishing. Love it. P.S. It's my PS Vita's wallpaper now.

SkyrisDesign responds:

oh yay ! thats awesome :D thanks

This is a great painting. I love how you've built the landscape up and around us in the middle area, It gives this piece immense depth. Great work, I'm all ready looking forward to more.

SkyrisDesign responds:

Thanks! :D
