Nice,

What is the synopsis?

It is a very nice piece. One of my criteria i always ask myself is do i wanna go there. The answer is my flight and bags are packed.


Even though the water under the bridge looks to flat especially with all that turbulent water. I would be tempted to have the water whosshing round like a vortex with the rock eroded back around the central island.

I still love it though :wink:

Rich


Cheers Rich

Thanks for your comments Rich :D . You are absolutely right about the water. I’m debating my self how to do the transition fro whirlpools of water to calm water. You see in the story the sacred temple called The Tiap is the source of the soul of the Pasirian and as you get close to it everything is calm and quiet. There is s soft breeze and the water gently washes of the shore at the base of the temple. Almost as if a force field surrounded the temple.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Put a series of concentric steps in at each step lower the water gets calmer till finally it becomes calm. Or using a series of dams or better Joe Public may not even notice, We are whores to detail that people never see.

This is all I can think of, I hope i am of some hope

Rich :D


Cheers Rich

wooow ... realy great scene ... :shock: very good start ...
I agree with rich ...
stars are too big and unnatural ... I see no conection between your work and the pic that wib send ... the cloud is deferent from that ... grat guard infront of the bridge ... light effect need more work ... I think its better you remove the stars and and go on with the clouds on the right side to left side ...
light and shadows on the great building is a bit unnatural ... you use dodge and burn tool very much ... I see a bit light in front of the great building and you must fix that ... there is shadow ... why there is light on the right wings ... I mean the guards ... is that sss ?... so why you dont do this with the left wings ... these are just my idea ... sorry fo my english I couldnt say better than it ...
strong forground

cheers .. and keep going ...

Thanks ehsan, you have made very good points.
The thing with the wings is that they are on an angle and the ones on the right face the sun, the ones on the left don't, I’ll post this image of a side view.
Again this image is also W.I.P.
As for the starts they are part of the story not the sky, once this panel is together on the hole page of the graphic novel it will make more sense. I hope!

Thanks again
