hey concept artists, i am hoping by putting work on this forum i can get very honest critiques from the artists on here. if my work is of poor quality please say so, but then please tell me how i can fix it and things to focus on in the future. any way i had a problem with following through with pieces this is the longest paint i ever done, 10 hours
I like it, the only thing i suggest is cropping the image a bit closer because there is a lot of empty space on the right side of the image. Good job!

I like the composition. I would try to make the sky to the right a bit more visually interesting. Right now it looks a bit like an afterthought.
funnny u mention that because b4 i had a very interesting cloud and very brightly lit but the problem was the attention wasnt going to the tinman so i actually ended up dumbing it down quite alot
ooooOOOOOoooo! I love the way you treated the trees and stumps. Very nice.
It's a very nice piece and concept. A few thing I noticed. First of all, I agree that the background sky needs some more work - it can stay at the low saturation and low contrast that it's at now, just more work so it isn't just a few blurry strokes. Also, the tree stumps get much thinner and further apart from each other in the clear cut area than the trees in the forest directly behind the tinman, which is strange. Also, whatever is on the grass in the background is completely unclear. I know you spent a long time on this, and it really shows in the fore- and middlegrounds, but the background needs some more attention as well. Again, beautiful idea, and some wonderful work in there!
Appreciate the critique Saramel, i will defiantly be more aware in the future of such things, thanks
I did a paint-over to illustrate some the changes I felt the image needed. I got rid of almost all of the black, got rid of the out-of-focus areas and instead created the depth with color, and added some contrasting colors within the light. I also changed the sky to help it fill the space.

It looks like it has space on the right for a poem or some meaningful message like "recycle, reuse, reduce"
I dont know why it was moved from FF. Honestly, I find that a little annoying. Its not like just because you're not a pro that its not an image that is 'finally finished' for you. Oh well. Good attitude you have tho, keep it up.
thanks keith_v for the helpful piantover, it was really helpful that is actually the mood i was more going for but i guess i just need more practice with these things.
