Wow this is very Dark Tower ^^ (a.k.a the series that kind of effed up the summer of 2009 for me)
If you're interested in an advice, I'd blend everything into the desert by adding some shadows (very easy to paint with any tool) and work on the light/shadows a bit more, because right now I love your composition, but everything seems a bit flat; also add some movement to these birds. I don't want to be mean or anything, these are just ideas to make your work more realistic.
I also love the colours btw, a really nice take on the whole rusty-desert palette :love:

Honestly, I hadn't thought of Dark Tower when creating, but I can see it now lol...

Any advice/suggestions are always welcomed. It's how we grow right? I was going for a soft more arid/hazy feel on this piece (just try something different for a change). I do see what you mean though and will definitely have to take the time to make an alt/revised version when I have the chance.

Thanks so much for the kind words and taking time to comment :D!

Well it was literally the only thing that bugged me, so I thought I'd speak about it, because you're absolutely right, this is how we learn (the beauty of dA :D). I can see your idea and I think even with added shadows and realism you can achieve this hazy atmosphere if you retain this palette, plus eventually some more mist/dust clouds (since he's in the desert). If you want to try and update it, I'd be thrilled to see the result :la: :glomp:

great feedback and it was much appreciated. I like your suggestion of dust clouds etc. will definitely try to update. Always easier when working on your own timeline to added in details and fine tune :).

This is true! I always say to myself that I'd update/refine something in a manip, then I won't bother because I'd work on something else :noes: (I'm a moron sometimes when it comes to time management), but I definitely see the logic there :D Good luck!
