Good going

+ Great depth of field: I really like the light coming from between the leaves.

+ Great detail on the plants: thatís REALLY bringing this project to life (that and the textures.)

+ Lighting: Nice going

+ Good composition: it keeps my eye directed to the middle of the page.

+ Meticulous craftsmanship: no shortcuts for you I can see. This project certainly turned my head.

My advice

-Is your warrior going to have an expression? I think that is very much an important part of this project. While stoic characters going on epic journeys isnít too uncommon, it is very common in this contest. You put a lot of work into this, however, I believe that it will blend in with quite a few others. Make the judges notice your work, and all of the meticulous work you put into it will pay off.

-Color composition: I would advise putting your warrior in something to draw him out. Tones of red or blue will do that for you.

This is a VERY good job on this by the way. I could totally see this on the cover to a big video game title.

The visible light beams add a very strong atmo here. If I were you, I`d use stronger contratst between light and places in shadow. It would look even more impressive. I always put extreme contrasts in my works and then have crazy troubles:banghead::cool:

Cheers, and good luck with remaining elements :beer:

Your trees and foilage look excellent. Great job. :thumbsup:

Now all you need is some shrubbery. Maybe one shrub that can be placed next to the tree to the left. If you don't, I shall say "Ni!" lol.....( old monty python, search for the holy grail )
