Wow. This is a great piece. I like the concept behind it --- by which I mean the concept that the title suggests in my head.

Reminds me a bit of Megazone 23. You ever see that?

I really like your landscapes, but I have to be honest -- your people could use some work. The details (clothing, skin tone) are great, but to me their poses seem stiff, awkward, and unnatural.

Here are a few links I thought you could possibly use as references. None are full body, but I thought it could at least get you started.

Also, the water in the picture seems too calm for the surrounding environment (ie. no ripples from wind or rain), and I was confused by the random gray circle on the middle right.

I think my favorite details would be the rocks and mushrooms (?) in the foreground, and the strong red in the building on the right contrasting with the rest of the scene.

Anyway, now that I've written you a book... You can ignore my critique, but I hope there was something useful in there.

Keep working to improve, you've got an enviable talent.

hey.. thanks for the time you took for the critique.. i really appreciate that..
and i know that i am not good with people... thats the reason why i call myself an environment Concept Artist.. hehe :) but you are right i really have to work on poses and characters. :) thanks for the references.. since city kids was work for a client, i wont touch it to redo the people in it. but i will definetly practice figures.. :)

I'm really just glad you got something out of it :) I know that, personally, I hate it when all the comments I get are "OMFG! That's AMAZING" etc.

PS. Feel free to tear any of my pieces apart, lol

Ich kann mich hier nur allen anderen anschließen. Die Details sind klasse, und die Atmosphäre sehr geil. Obwohl hier so viel zerstörung herrscht ist der linke teil des Bildes recht schön. Ich mag diesen Kontrast. :clap:

PS: Ich mag die lilafarbenden Haare.

....although this has quite a few good things, you really must work on your figure drawing (anatomy)
ad perspective.... the figures need a lot of work, and the city looks like it is about 30 feet away?
I'm just suggesting these things as a comment and mean no disrespect... you will not improve by only hearing..."cool dude" and "awesome" !
Just a thought

Wow. That is really really awesome.
I love this. It is sort of like fairytale mixed with sci-fi and post-apocalypticness. Brilliant.

It reminds me of some game I played a while ago... sort of. At least the buildings do.

Except it wasn't post-apocalyptic.


Ah, well.
Now I'm really interesting in BTW.

Paintings like this always blow my mind. You've managed to convey details that aren't even there! That's very slick. If I want to convey "leaves" I have to paint every single leaf because I utterly fail at implied detail. XC

Lovely work.
