I present to you:

Personal comment
Well, after reinstalling windows for the 5th time, and then realising, that my harddisk practically died, I just had to do some art related stuff.

I'm pretty unhappy about this piece, mainly because there are some areas that didn't came out the way I wanted them to be.

mhh, actually, I concentrated my efforts more on the landscape itself, than on the other elements.

What it is:
Based on my newest terragenrender I rendered for 14 hours.
textures from cgtextures, pixelio and sxc.
same goes for the few references I used for the birds.
Original size: 7000x3944px @ 300dpi

wacom intuos3 a5

adobe photoshop
terragen and world machine

The hyper basic idea about this piece:
Two scouting jets flying through an untouched scenery..

Thanks to `taenaron and ~Pr3t3nd3r for suggestions.
And yeah, taenaron pushed me to submit it ;P

stimmt, man kommt sich immer komisch vor, in einem Gespräch mit einem Deutschen von "Mattepaintings" zu reden :D

Just so you know, even though you were unhappy about this piece; it is one of my favourites of all your images. Possibly my favourite. I can only find one thing I'm not entirely satisfied about and that's the jet/ship leaving a trail across the peak - for the same reason as I mentioned in the critique on 5ive percent remaining. I'd actually be interested to know what you felt you did badly on this image?

Love it :D

:D thanks for the comment!
No way I'm going to give you a detailed comment on why I am unhappy with this piece. I don't want to ruin it for you :D
Let's just say, if I were to redo it today, it wouldn't look the same

Awww, that's fair enough; I was considering trying to pull it apart as much as physically possible, but I think I'll just stick with enjoying it :D

Arg double commented by accident. Ah well, the picture is worth it.

This is fast becoming my favourite image out of the collection, gucken; it's somewhat unique but not trying too hard to be, and it's generally very pleasant to look at. I'll critique in more detail when my internet isn't being interrupted!

A personally favorite. The theme of untouched nature is detailed wonderfully in this art. I find peace and adventure into a world ripe for discovery as I gaze into the work. The mountains, rivers, trees, and planets blend together into a majestic scenery. Gorgeous work once again gucken.
