Editing Program: Photoshop CS5
Tablet: Wacom Bamboo (16:9)
Time: ~4 hours (finished)
Fun Factor: Massive!

really awesome colours and textures there's a nice ambience about the picture. i agree with *secretly-broken's comments, particularly with the clouds, I usually find that if you paint in wiggly lines and circular motions you get more fluffy-looking clouds. but otherwise really awesome (: i especially like how you did the water, the subtle reflections really add realism to the painting (:

Looking back at it from today, I absolutly agree with you. I would have done a lot of things different to be honest. Thanks for the feedback! :)

I quite like the general idea of this. But if you worked a little more in it, it could be a lot stronger.
I'm really fond of your water, especially the colour of it. It looks really pretty. :)
I like the blue of the sky too but the clouds look a little too scattered. If they were a tad more structured, it would look better, I think.
The buildings and trees also seem to kind of run into each other. If they had more definite shapes the picture, in its entirety, would be stronger.

Nice for a speed paint. The edges of the clouds could be softer.

I'm actually working on this right now, but thanks for the input anyway! This was a speedpaint at first, but I'm enhancing it.

You might want to lower the opacity on the brush settings for the clouds and use a bigger brush. Good for you :)

Wow I love how you did the water and sky! ^^ The colors are great.
I think it might have looked better if you made the lines on the buildings more straight and clean, but that's just me.
Nice work!

Nice... real nice...

Focus on the details in the future pieces, and outline what you paint.

But otherwise, great!

much nicer, although - it still requires more detail in both colour and outline.

Great start though :)

this is a lovely speed paint that I think you should go back to and make a nice finished piece out of. I'd love to see some detail :) the blues of the river ans sky are so vibrant and wonderful I think you should add this vibrancy to some of the reds and greens, it would really pop! :)
