This is the most awesome painting. I've ever seen. Actually. This might be better than without car and solider. And the view might be more far than this view. and this guy can be placed in a natural landscape. But really loved it. Its an awesome painting. Really. Good Work. And I am new in this things. But so interested in this painting things too. :D I readed your tutorial. Actually I didnt understand Any thing :D But I am triying to paint something when im bored. But i can't :D

Great details, but this would look a lot better is you used more than just two colours.

I disagree, more colours would just take away from the theme of this piece.

It's like... those crazy imax movies where you're sitting inside a dome watching a film projected on all sides. Makes me a bit sick to my stomach, but I can't help ooooh-ing and aaaah-ing. I think this exagerated perspective really works for your image - it emphasizes the unreality of the scene.

I have an idea for you, a painting that’s sort of like this. It’s a tower that is miles high, taller than the clouds, the perspective keeps the whole tower in the frame from top to bottom. I don’t have the materials or the skills to do it though, but if you did it I would definitely buy a print of it.

:) please consider?

long how you made it as though you were standing right there... and if you were to look straight up you'd see the upside down building at the top... well done... i love all of your stuff... i've been showing my friends :)

really amazing :) your painting skills are really out of this world :)

some critiquing -
1) i think you would be better off not having the clouds transparent over the buildings at the top of the painting. it looks to photoshop amateur to me when i can see that your past that stage with your painting skills.

2) that dotted texture all over the work takes away from, rather than add to the work. perhaps use it sparingly? i cant even tell what it is supposed to be..

3) the rain at the bottom - i think this would look better if hand painted than by using photoshop filters. you have great painting skills, so it would probably look a lot better that way.

Wayyy too much going on in here. Theres no focus.

Same with a lot of your art sir... When everything is rendered to such a ridiculous quality, it makes the whole thing hard to look at.

I'm not saying its a month of work wasted. I'm saying you could do better by doing less :D
