This genuinely blew me off my feet. Where do I start?
Colors. Amazing. You did a great job with that. Especially with the ocean. I love how all the different shades of blue are all blended together.
I feel like the mountain could use more texture. It looks more softened than the rest of the picture. On its own, that's fine, but with the super detailed boats and buildings, it looks slightly out of place. Same with the pathways leading up to the buildings.
The buildings! Oh my god so much good detail. I feel like if I keep looking at it, I'll start seeing little people poking their heads out of the windows.
Speaking of people, I like that you painted a person with a camel. How small they are in comparison to everything else really shows how huge everything in the picture is.
It's a really beautiful painting. I can't stop staring at it.
You're welcome! I meant it more like the path leading down from the (city?) gate is really steep. I'd recommend more turned on the path to make it appear less steep. Otherwise those tiny people would probably "roll down", rather than being able to walk down.
It seems I haven't read quiet well your comment. But after rereading it I will once again agree with you. It was meant to be back door, secret, dangerous path, but then it turned into main entrance. As you mentioned it, now I can see how to change it and make the image more dramatic. Thank you again.
*You might have some perspective problems, wich may be OR NOT a part of the problem, i'm no perspective expert, and i have troubles with it, so i'll leave this part to experts.
*It seem the houses are placed on the ground as objects, stones or somthing that dosen't belong here. why not hide the base of them with walls? barrels? Or put a Crane into the dockyards?Why not even a shipyard? Maybe all would fit better if they were united by somthing that would link it all ? Give the overall settlement a city or village style.. somewhere you could actually live. places to shop, drink, sleep, work.
Thank you very much for your comment! Buildings near the sea really need some more attention, more life. I made them last and lost the energy to make them better. My idea about them was about some small warehouses, place for few workers, fisherman's cabins, store for tools. The main living and commercial space are behind the walls of the city. But your idea is very good. Crane, barrels, little market will blend very well. About perspective I'm seeing now few weak spots. Thanks again for your advices. They are very helpful!
