its too blurry at the moment...the color choice is right on though...keep on working at it with crisper lines(less bluring) and i think it will do really good

tnx, but do you mean with the sharpen tool? because when I do that the colors change too, they get more bright so i have to blur to get them better. Or did you have something else in mind?

pangu - Tnx, I'll try that!

Well i agree with the fact it's too blurry.
Sharpen doesnt mean use the "sharpen" tool.
Sharpen means try painting without using the feathered edge brush, but a brush with a hard edge instead. Also try avoiding blending eveything into each other... blending is good where 2 colors are supposed to fade into each other, but if you take a look at the real world, there are just as many hard edges between colors, as blended places :D

Keep working on it :D

Tnx Swoop, ive done as you said and here's the result:

If it still is a bit blurred i think it's because i resized it after i painted from 1024 to 640.

The image is a bit too empty, maybe it needs some clouds or something. If anyone knows a good method for clouds please share it :) But untill then i will try myself
