WIP - Enchanted forrest - Enviorment - Sangotten

Hi there!

Okay here is the first concept of many, I want to make some kind of Myst (you know the game!) village inside a forrest. The image included is an early one because I will add buildings later. I will later turn it in to 3D... Allthough my previous attemps with 3D didn't work out that well, I think this one might work!

Tell me what you think of it, or give me some thoughts!!

cool concept , it might do well for the 3-d scene to have it really dark and moody in the back, even wildly different trees(color-wise or whatever) and maybe rendered at a a little dutch tilt - but i know that this pic is just a rough so it might be too early for these comments --- happy

i think the way Edward Hopper made a background gradually darker in this picture is nice ! Its not a forest and certainly not fantasy/magic i know, but it might be useful for your concept ??

I like it so far. My only crit would be more of a suggestion.
Really think about how some thing is put together or constructed and made of. It is this kind of thought process that comes out in the details and brings a picture to life. Right now the path and its railing are fairly ambiguous and takes away from the strength of the other elements.
That's all. Keep up the good work.

He that looks a lot better.
With, how it is constructed, in your mind you made the peace a lot better. can't wait to see it fully collered.

Keep it up.

ye ! looks much more tight and certain now. But i see you "rendered" the center tree in dark-middle-lighter keys already while the rest is still pure line drawing-waiting-to-be-filled-in. I would humbly suggest to try to start the whole picture in larger blocks of value and think so you see the overall lighting. This might result in a stronger lighting of the whole and u will see using larger blocks of value from the beginning and progressively refining might "force" you to discover problematic area's in the image that will solve themselve easier. Only a suggestion ;-)

Looking good, but I didn't see how big the final image is supposed to be. Did I miss I miss it somewhere? On another note, I was having problems on your website. The only page that came up was your 2d stuff, the rest was broken links.
