Diamond in the rough by alltelleringet Diamond in the rough by alltelleringet
An image I started working on in March/April. I've been staring myself blind on it now and would love to hear a second opinion. Any thoughts on improvements, composition or technique?

What comes to your mind when you see it?

its a very cool work, but if its diamond, it won't reflect like this. For the study, of such, I can render you a diamond with the background of such behind it... if you wish.

My first thought was that I'd rather see a rough diamond than one that is cut. #personalpreference

I don't have any other helpful suggestions, so I hope that was one. Have a nice day.

Jag tycker om bilden, men diamanten ser inte riktigt ut som en diamant, utan snarare som en plastreplika. Det vore ju snyggt om du fick till diamant-känslan också.

Money may not grow on trees, but diamonds do fall from the sky!

This makes me think of a fallen shooting star. Now you know why they sparkle!

Ok, so my personal complaint, there are some cheesy looking sunbeams, in the upper left third, as well as the diamond looks kinda plasticky.  I find those distracting.  Not trying to sound mean at all, I love it!  Just what I think could make it better.  Good Job :)

This is stunning
I think that there can be more  light reflection on the floor though (:
The diamond has a lot of sides so there must be more than one right?

Looks great.  The only thing I could think to add would be a little dirt/mud on front of the diamond.

Hi. First of all, this is very good artwork! But its physically not clear enough. Has the Diamond fallen from the sky or had it been dragged over the ground? Case 1: the Diamond is too clean, since it must have rolled and jumped over the ground. Also, there should be adequate marks in the soil to proof it. case 2: for this case, the image would be good, but i would add an explaination, like people pushing/dragging it.

Nevertheless, it is by far better than anything i could produce. It only seems incomplete to a viewer.

Are you sure you even photoshopped this? It seems you just took a photo... lol

Clean look, you even got the refraction of light on the ground from the Diamond. Although it would seem that there should be more, its still a really nice job you've done...

Overall, spectacular work on this one!
