Underground Town by Peroline and SoulcolorsArt

This once was a lovely town where lots of women took care of all the bats.
Only a few women are left and the place is falling apart.
What will become of the bats when all the women are gone?

We :iconperoline: and :iconsoulcolorsart: made this for the Intermediate Tournament-Round 2 at :iconcrphotomanipulation:

I like me your ideas always...and this is another beautiful idea

I can see well the effort to work all. Working with open space is always a risk because the use of multiples elements is an hard and long work.

before, i watch always the first impact and this is really nice.

I like me also the general cave tone

I like me much the work on girl and on the castle, this last the most difficult part of the entire work..excellent work on that!...and i like me the bat on the left angle.

Pay always attention to "the clone effect" this case i see so good the same bat cloned....this is always a bad idea! If u are lazy like a bear to find each single bat....:giggle: U can solve this problem using

swarms of bats  ------> like in this example

Let me talk about proportions because this work got heavy proportions problems....well u know this topic is really hard, so it's normal, and i write this only because u are u  otherwise i don't waste, never, my time to write all these things :pat:  This is a funny exercise and u can do alone from urself..... Watch the girl and now watch her distance from those rocks under the castle. Ok? That distance is
very the entire proportion of the castle and of the girl near the door castle are wrong.
In general if you want work good with all always each distance from the main subject....Well of course this isn't always possible because some enviroments are hard! But in this case was "easy".

In few words...this work, got a giant potential hided.....and the key to take it out is linked to the proportion! Oh yes, in my mind i can imagine this work with right proportion and its

Remember always....the rule is only 1.....
nature must always dominate the subject...this is the only way to create the illusion of magnificence in these works! Pratical example:…

The bats into the light beam
they too don't help the illusion of magnificence because their proportion is + or - equal....Don't have fear to work with proportion!!! If u create little bats near the hole u'll increase the effect of magnificence of the nature. Other example ---->…

U got great ideas and u got a great taste, if you, in the time u'll fix these hard topics u'll be more powerful....but i know these concepts are impossible to be acquired in 2 days!

Of course u cant restart this work from zero...too long.....but u can do a little personal exercise, using only 5 shoots.....1 cave, 1 castle, 1 subject, 1 swarm of bats, 1 hole with a ray beam like that used here. and try to recreate the same composition created here....This is useful to increase the experience with proportions

I remember u the last thing....of course this isn't an exam :giggle: This is only don't worry about all these things!
