Have taken a day to rest my head from painting and be able to see the project with new eyes I hoped and I realised that I donīt really like the background, so I have done some tests with a new one and this is it.
Just the background building blocks, a bit more futuristic but with lightning and in the wrong place, but I will only put main light in 3D and paint the rest.
So what do you think, should I go with this, stay with the old or make a new one?

Made some changes and started to paint the city again, I think I will go with this one, mostly because time is running out and I think this will look more SciFi and cool (I hope).

i like this scifi backdrop better ;]

could take a while to paint though, looks like a lotta detail to go into it, maybe concentrate on the most important aspects when painting? and sometimes unfinished parts can look cool if u jus block em in and add some appropriate highlighting.

should put in ur avatar before continuing to save time and not paint too far in areas covered by the dragon? dunno if thats a great way of doing things but i like to do that cos im lazy

wow didnt think i'd say so much, anyway good luck

Thanks CLP,
I plan to block out most of the city and then just as you said place my avatar so I save some time and don't spend to much time on this. Then maby later I will make it an image of itself. That´s my goal that every part should be able to be shown by them selves and still be looking good.

As you said a lot of work and I hope for an update later today.
For the 3D I use Modo www.luxology.com and the 2D is Photoshop.
Thanks for comment.

yes yes, we need to go fast but I´m stuck in my mind at the Dominance War VI thingy so I have to do something about that, but update coming soon I promise.

Looking forward to that next update, man. Don't dwell too much on unfinished business, though. Dangerous this late in the game. Actually, I could take some of my own advice in that department... Crap, never mind.

thanks for the verry good advice Jibberwocky. I think I have a pretty good idea for the Dominance war mini challenge so there will be some work on that today and maby tomorrow.
It´s my girlfriends birthday today so have spent allot of time with here offcourse and that means there will be some visitors this weekend and so, so I better start working fast to get done.
Anyway it´s always good to get some feedback so thanks again.

There are so many details going into this. It's gonna look seriously good when it's finished. Oh and I know you said you didn't like your first general for Dominance War but i did, so i hope you'll get to finish him some time.

miycko - Thanks, my biggest problem will be all the detale I thing, very time consuming but I hope I will make it in time, and thanks about the war general, the reason I didn't like it was because it looks more lie a regular space marine soldier or something like that and I wanted something well strange

POSEIdOON - thanks mate and youre prayer is heard I will start with the dragon asap.

So Dominance war mini challenge is done and I feels good to be done, I learned some things and I think I got a little quicker which is good when time is short (like in this one).
So here is my plan for the rest of the challenge if there isn't something coming up which it always is.

may 2 - dragon contoures and bace colours
may 3 - finish dragon
may 4 - goat samurai warrior continues
may 5 - warrior finished
may 6 - city continues
may 7 - finish city
may 8 - fixing stuff up and done

That´s the plan I just hope I can hold it.
