only can second Reizakus opinion. what I'd add is that the person and the horse on the middle-left side should pop out a bit more. plus if the light source is placed somewhere on the left in the bg there should't be shadow only on the rocks that guides this path on the right but also on the left - like it was magic time. which makes me think of the colour saturation of the rock which is overlapped by another on the left side: regarding the size of the figure with the horse the distance between the rock in the forground and the rock in bg the colours of the second rock should be more desaturated so the eyes can read that this is more far away. In addition, what about making the bg on the left upper corner richer in value? A few more shadowy blush/violett silhouttes of mountains in order to push this piece with more depth would be nice, wouldn't it?
Hope you'll work it out completely someday so it is a fully finished concept art, it would turn out pretty well.
You're right. I'll definitely keep your advice in mind. Especially the two rocks on the left that have too dark shadows compared to the rocks in the front. Thank you for taking the time to point these things out to me! I'll think about reworking this.
Sure thing, hope it was helpful. Only can recommend reworking pieces. Seeing the difference between the old and the new one really pushes oneself. ....although..it's quite hard to get started with the work -.-
I know what you mean! It takes time to work up motivation to go back to an old piece again. I would definitely like to see a more refined version of this painting, myself, sometime. Only, there are so many other things to do, too.
Truly true words -.- The thing is, working on an old piece again needs very much motivation XD Motivation we could spend on a new one, right? painting can mentally exhausting, even if we haven't started yet.
Hmm I like the concept/idea and the forms of the rocky bridge thing have a cool mysterious feel .But I think it lacks some cool details or little elements to make it more interesting .Maybe because it looks so "dead" .colors are a bit monotonous but you did a really good job on seperating the light from the dark values with decent midtones. keep it up
