    Wow.. I wish you could livestream yourself while doing this work. It's really nice. The perspective of the light looks a bit weird to me, aswell one of the trees but still very nice.

    I can see what you tried to do over there. The concept is pretty nice but i don't like this one to be honest. Specially the river, doesn't looks good.. like way too plain at my eyes. :ogre_rage:

    But seriously, just livestream yourself and let us watch :grin:

    Your environments are lovely, especially the forested ones. Good work!

    So this is were you've been lurking. Path less travelled and View (titles?) are damn fine.

    Not liking the mountain scene though. Colours work well and tie together nicely, but the shapes and perspective makes the left side weak and meager to look at. I think this style of art is less suited for grand scope since it'll look a bit cursory.

    Glad you like them, although The View didn't do so good on deviantart, it has the least views/favourites of all my stuff.

    Hmm the left side used to be a huge mountain aswell, but i thought it looked better this way.
    Anyway, i was just experimenting with the mountain one as i haven't really done many grand scope landscapes.

    Thanks for the support everyone, i also added a new painting. I think it might be too dark, is it?

    Shack (12) is really nice, pretty good use of green color all around. But i don't like the last one, "forest" (13) i just don't like, can't explain at all. Is the way you put all those colors together, looks weird and makes no feeling to me.

    Wow, aztec temple is nice but "dark path-way" got me for real. I will say this one more time. Please livestream yourself while doing this work! :p +rep

    Thanks, i don't really want to stream tho because my creation technique is all weird sometimes and i redo some paintings alot. (The Shack took me like 3 days because i wasn't satisfied with it and im still kinda not) Also most of my paintings take at least 2 days to complete. Anyway, added Dark City.

    The spiral effect seems weird, like if it overides the buildings and not an effect over the city. But the concept is pretty good, i can see the distance between dirty ground and the actual city. That makes a great feeling while looking at it, makes me think the city is in a bleak place of the world.

    The spiral isn't over the city, it's coming out of the middle building towards the screen. Also added a new painting.

    I don't like the last one, doesn't give me the impression of a "swamp". I don't know if you added some flowers or it's me being paranoic, but i don't get the feeling.

    I though the spiral was over the city because of the "storm"/"lines" effect that is painted on the building all way down, because if the spiral comes from the building then that mix of lines seems really weird on the image.

    I wanted to make a more colorful and less monotone/depressing swamp this time.

    The spiral actually was over the city originally, but i changed it last minute, but doesn't matter as im not gonna bother changing it anyway.

    Oh, maybe an air camere view of the swamp would allow you to play with more colors? Or light rays maybe..
    I agree, not worth editing. Also the city is pretty much awesome itself.

    I hope, soon enough i get a new computer so i can stop trying to judge your work like if i were better than you (pfft, i'm a total noob) and actually make some myself. Love the way you do these pictures. :p Non-stop!

    I guess that's for you to decide :p

    Also added a new landscape, i think i should do more sci-fi stuff since i actually love sci-fi movies/games.
