To post it full size you have to upload it somewhere else on the net (I did on deviantart) then use the insert image button and copy that image url into the space

Hey Jay,

You're off to a great start. Playing with the tilt of the horizon line, as well as an underwater shot (not easy)

Here are few things to keep in mind. When working off of a theme like this, it's easy to get lost in its broadness. So here are a few things I do to nail down a story for the piece, because ultimately you want the viewer to not only see the story, but want more of it.

I wanted a forest creature being led to an old ruin by his favorite food (follow the bread crumbs) Simple. then I start sketching. I can some what see the possibility of a story in your piece, but can't quite put it together. Try to really nail down your idea in the initial sketch that way there are no surprises.

As far as the painting skill goes, you are on your way. don't be afraid of color, use your complimentary colors to really bring out a pieces mood. Your blue scene would really be set off but introducing red and orange....perhaps lights that lead the eye to a focal point. Also think of paths through the image for the eye to follow...key lines and areas of contrast that act as a guide, leading the viewer through the piece.

I'll leave it at that. Keep up the good work and good luck!

Thanks for the tips, I will take those into consideration for next months challenge. A few basic things that I had overlooked or forgotten all together. Good luck to you too. ;0)

This time i did a totally different approach, starting with several photo's and tried a matte painting. I had big fun with it and made a video. It will be on youtube soon. Sofar, this is my final..maybe i tweak little things on the fly. But for now.. I am happy! The original file is 6000px wide and 150 dpi! My computer is smoked! Good luck everyone!
