Stunning light and colors. I liked the previous wide version more concerning the composition, but on the other side now You can focus on some main charakters much better. I hope to see many ,many more steps.

It´s incredible the way you design painting, without drawing. I like your colour sketches very much. I can´t wait to see you detailing an finishing them. Good work.

Hi, Torsten, looking good! I think I prefer the horizontal composition slightly more because the width helped the left->right motion of the piece... plus (especially) I was impressed by the sheer spectacle of so many people making a mass exodus. Of course it's a ton more work to paint all those people, especially if you're working on weekends too. (I can empathize: I am too!) Of course, the portrait composition does really emphasize the more personal journey of the main character. Though his staff, placement, size, and colors already set him apart? Wonder how it would look if her were in the head of the horizontal procession, on the right side? Anyhow, just thoughts that don't really affect anything one way or another, it's still coming out really well whichever you choose, and I'm looking forward to seeing your progress. (And thanks for the very kind words in my thread! )

I'll second all the other comments on your colour palette - it's just awesome the way you make the whole painting glow.

I can already feel the atmosphere. Very nice use of color and composition so far. Don't have any comments/critics actually, just compliments. Looking forward to see it develop!

  03 March 2006
well, i like this latest sketch a lot.
if you're aiming on a jungle-ish scene, you should stik with those colors and buildup, don't lose the free space at the right.

well, however... if you're more thinking of a light wooden sorrounding, you might want to change something.

Wow, I think this point of view and horizontal comp you have chosen are simply amazing. Love your colour palette. I only need larger images to satisfy myself. This image is going to be one of the big ones. Keep it up.
