Some favela inspired high altitude houses


Hi, I hope you guys like this favela inspired high altitude houses. I am a Belgian artist who tries to have feedback on some platforms, because I really don't know what I should do to get more contacts with other artists.
I have a facebook page: I would love to have some new friends checking out my art and commenting regularily:

After some thought, I think that while the picture itself looks nice from a technical perspective, it's not very good overall. No one would build this many houses on a tree of this size. I think it would've been better to build inside of an ultra-huge tree, instead of around a tree like this. That said, I can't even see the tree bark, so I think you might as well have just had a vertical neighborhood thing. You should pick an aspect of this picture, and work with and around it. There needs to be rhyme and reason for the subject (in this case, high altitude houses) to exist, which is what the background is for.
I'm sure if you give it some thought you could make something way better than this which is just a passing grade and not much more. Give your audience something to digest for a while, make them want to come back and show their friends what you made. Tell a good story with a single instant. That's the best way to improve from here.

Unfortunately, I don't think I can do better than this :p let's say it's a happy accident. If I want to improve I still have to do what everyone else does, that is mastering the basics. Messing around with concepts, original ideas and meaningful designs is cool but not yet my first objective. Anyway thanks for your feedback, it sure isn't realistic.

Absolutely gorgeous. I get some sort of M.C. Escher vibe from some of the pillars, but then again, I haven't slept very well...

RVHCreations responds:

Haha, yeah true I added very quickly some pillars afterwards because otherwise it wouldn't make sense at all. At least now you can see I had the intention to make some sense :D Let's just assume it's made out of extremely hard steel or something :p

This is fookin great and I have zero helpful criticism! GJ!

RVHCreations responds:

Haha thanks man you know sure know how to compliment an artist :D

The colours are fantastic and I really like how the structure becomes more faded towards the bottom; it's a great indicator of height.

RVHCreations responds:

Thanks man! :)
