Relaxing place. (was: "The first kiss.")

Hey all, I'm trying to do a scene called "The first kiss".

By now I'm only working in the background, when it's finished I'll add 2 persons looking each other (moments before the kiss).

It's gonna be a gift for a friend. I need critics, comments and whatever you think about it.


Here's the background (~4.5h PSCS):



Any idea how I can improve it?
Thanks.



Hugs.

Just a change on the tree's shadows/colors.
I'm out of ideas so I think the background is done..



Suggestions, critics and comments are welcome.
Hugs.

All I see is the default photoshop grass brush. It's easy to spot.

I say go with a more stylized grass design or make your own custom brush for grass. Using the default grass brush is almost as bad as the lens flare filter.

Also be aware of the point as which you can no longer discern individual blades and should instead paint with broader shapes.

Ok, I tried to make my own grass brush..

What you think about the image now?


I was thinking in changing the concept.. Thianking about drawing a person beside the tree sitting on the grass looking to the horizon.

A calm scene, just a perfect place to relax..


Waiting for C&C..

Hugs!

Hi! I prefer the one with softer grass. And the mountains look strange right next to the beach. I think that looks a bit unrealistic because I never saw something like that.. but maybe it exists? I like the texture you gave to the clouds, though. Since you're making a landscape, I advise you to search for some references for your sunset. A sunset never has white light, it has warm colors mostly, no? Go ahead with the idea of a person sitting under the tree, too.

Sorry for my bad english.

It's not suposed to be a sunset.

The idea comes out from this image:
Apostles Mountain

I don't want to make a city there, I should add some vegetation near the beach, but it's hard for me as I'm just a newby on painting.

So, I'm stuck. Don't know what to do next.
Help please...

Ooh so sorry, I thought it was a sunset because of the light near the horizon, but it's just mist then.. If you're having a hard time doing vegetation, you can make some brushes or use Goro's brushes (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthr...t=hints+brushes), and then refine the vegetation. I'm a newbie myself, so I understand you.
