Beautiful Landscape!

Thanks for the feedback! The water was a real pain in the bum for me. I agree, it's really messy and didn't know any other way of how to make it smoother, sadly. I left the sky empty for when attempting to make a cloud it didn't look so great.. however the star idea sounds really cool! And thanks for the compliment =) It motivates an artist to continue on their work.

The colours are amazing, but there are several problems with this.

  • The water is really messy.  It's easy to tell that it's a copy-paste patchwork. 
  • The sky is rather empty.  There's simply too much empty space there.  You could add more clouds, or stars, or aliens... OK, maybe not aliens.  But still.  The emptiness takes away from the whole thing.
  • The shading on the rocks is off.  The second darkest colour is a completely different texture from the rest of the rock.  In addition, there are a few places where there are long, unbroken lines (particularly in the bottom middle) that distract from the peice.

You certainly captured the charm of a sunset, and texture isn't bad, and the colours are stunning.  You certainly have talent.  I'll be looking forward to seeing more works by you, perhaps even more sunsets?

Really nice!

Possibly! If I do go back to this project I will definitely do that along with adding more dithering patterns to the sky. Thanks for the comments guys!

Lovely. I think you could try messing around with the rock texture a bit more at the dark area. Great job on the composition!
