This is a scene from an idea about an Jousty adventurey game.  Maybe it will become something else.

Really nice, wish it was animated though. Great detail in the cliffs!

That's amazing!

Nice one. People usually prefer to draw flying birds with their wings pointed up. You are a minority :D

Reminds me of my old piece :) and of Agony of course. The rocky clifs are nice and so is the grass\bushes on it. The tower kind of doesnt go right with the cliff perspective and is a bit too contrast. The owl is really cool (hey I can actually tell its an owl although its so small !) but it really stands out too much and I think maybe people kind of expect it to fly straight left to right as in sidescroller arcade.

jeepers, thats quite pretty

I love the comic style of the whole thing.

I think this looks really interesting. To me, the tower stands out the most. Perhaps pull the lightsource slightly to the left, and introduce a little bit of hue shift. Still like it though:)

I love it overall. I just don'y like parts of the tower, some parts like the left side, jut out and don't look nice.

only crit is that you have several aligned edges where you'ld probably do better to have them jog (aligned edges destroy depth)

Zeh (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/10/2007 11:13

Wow... Perfect! 5/5

Brilliant! I love it! Fav

The rocks are really beautiful, but the the rock that the tree is sitting on looks as if it has been abruptly cut off by the rock in foreground (or is it in the background?). It's a nice looking scene :)

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 10/10/2007 02:02
Wonderful piece, nice mood in it and lots of details to rest my eyes on! My only crit would be the owl himself, can't quite grasp what in it, maybe its the style or the proportion. Don't be discouraged tho, this piece is very, very good.

MrMister (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/10/2007 01:28
hooray 6/6

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/10/2007 01:27
I agree with the critisism of surt and bob. Also, I think it might be nice for more of a hue shift to blue or purple for the rocks in the distance, rather than just make them lighter.

Nice work, overall it is still a nice scene.

Maarten (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/10/2007 01:13
Absolutely beautifull, I hope Ill be able to do scenes like this one day!

Sky looks a little cheaped on, and tower looks awkwardly too square-on (particularly being a ruin and all).

I love this scene. I'm a fan of anyone who can complete scenes like this. However, some things irk me a bit. The bird/owl seems out of place with the rest of the piece. Not sure if it's the composition, style, or the fact that you didn't use the same old outstretched wings pose that most artists use. Could also be that the darkest brown you chose for it, stands out, and makes it too "chunky" for it to fit in. After all, the bird is still in the distance, so maybe a little less intensity, perhaps. Also, the clouds look wonderful, but as they get higher into the atmosphere, it seems like the details begin to fade. Seems like laziness, but I'm sure it was intentional.
Still, I love this. Will take notes....
