Jungle river concept took about 4 hours. Would love some constructive criticism.

I rather be a place like that than in a big, crowded town.

This looks amazing! Could I maybe used this to describe some territory in my group? It is a roleplay about domestic sized cats living in the amazon in the 1600's. :D I would add it to my group so others would know who it belonged too!

it just seems slightly at the wrong angle at the moment further in the distance, as if the water was flowing slightly uphill

Hi Niels, as far as constructive feedback goes, you have a solid start here with this image that a few tweaks will push it much further.Firstly, be wary of your perspectives, the middle section of the stream seems off balance a little, the bend in the river should be exaggerated to the right.
Light, you have a strong light source coming through in this from the sun, because of this, where the light hits certain sections of the jungle the colours of leaves, bushes etc would be very bright and strong, don't be afraid to push your colour values.
Another thing to help add more depth to the image, if you have any spatter effect brushes then use them in areas where the foliage is thicker, it gives the impression of vast amounts of leaves and growth.

Good luck with your next concept
