That last one is really nice, Thyn. I love the texture of the rocks and the almost emissive quality of the pond water.

Alex's speed practice

I'd like to get better at working fast and loose. I'm too detail oriented and find it difficult to churn out rough paintings that just get an idea across. My plan is to do a number of these color...

Very nice. The colors are rich but not overwhelming. The clouds in the first version are tasty. I agree with previous poster about the shadows. The shadows cast by the sheep are going in a different...

Ooo. Great stuff. The three-eyed spider mech lurking in the distance gives me shivers.

This composition really isn't working for me. All the interest is in a straight horizontal line across the center, which is boring. The buildings on the left are too close to the edge (gives the...

Looking better. But it seems to me that the water, being bright and taking up most of the center, is the focal point, when I would imagine you want the architecture to be what draws the viewers'...

I could be wrong, but it seems that the rooftops of the left top portion of the building are too shallow. The angle of the wall on the right side looks proper, but it isn't consistent with the left...

Agreed, the reflections are way too smooth. And you forgot to add your lights to the reflections in the night shot. Overall I think the stormy version has a lot of potential.

There are a lot of things here that you've done well. The bottom fog and rich shadows are nice, as are the highlights on the building. The traditional and high-tech mixture of architecture isn't...

Excellent work. I especially like the content and palette of the second painting.

If I may make a constructive criticism of the night shot? The composition is great, but two things bother me....

I understand that ILM is going to be using Vue a lot from now on. I think mathematically generated environment renders are helpful to start from. Just can't leave them that way :wink:

I agree that the shores need to be visually broken up.
Also, the cliff seems too barren to me. Some well-placed shrubs and a few trees would do wonders.
Honestly, this piece is excellent. Well...

This is looking good, but I think that the flyers and castle are in bad spots. The castle should be flipped also, because it leads the eye out of the painting. I can tell you put a lot of work into...

Xanadu & Bit Palace

Hi all,

This first work is...

Nice work! Draws me in. I think the fires and windows in the background aren't casting light realistically, but that's my only crit.

Decent first attempt, friend. The first two things I noticed:
1. In a night scene, the land should never be brighter than the sky. Unless of course there are artifical lights, like city lights. But...

Nicely done. Evokes a feeling for sure. My only crit is that the composition seems unbalanced...right heavy.
