ShiRin - Ghost Town

Perhaps its about time that I give the Ghost Town Digital Painting Challenge a try. Thanks to Washka who suggest that my previous WIP could be used for the challenge. So its about three days left, and Im going in for full force. Let me just roll out what started of for the painting...


It was initially a random image that I painted with painter and later combined with a 3D mesh created from Maya.





However, it looked quite pretty interesting in the start which looked like this.




*Just some close ups*




As time passed by, I decided that I put in a subject for it, a female who is holding an umbrella. However, the subject itself is still unsure at this point.




But it didnt really bothered me that much. So I continued painting it with a little more values just to bring out the subject more.




And so I stopped at this point wondering should it look better in bluish mood or the original mood...




Would be glad that some feedback could push this painting further. Ill continue doing it and update this painting...

The name of this painting I named after the title of Ghost Town, is called ShiRin, the town which nobody is still alive

Comments are welcome and much appreciated!! Thanks!!

Update WIP

Decided to take out the female from the composition, as I afraid it slowly changes into a portrait painting soon. And changed the color to sepia feel.

It's kinda interesting because we need to use our own imagination to find what is it. But I think you could help us even a little more.
I prefer your sepia, but now it's really dark, maybe you chould "add some more light"?

Starting to feel da ghost inside, nice evolution. Your adds are working.
Like first and last one, prefer the first blue "water spirit touch", green's got a nice cold atmosphere but I don't like agressive "red spirit touch" on it, like the green center ray of the second one, maybe you could mix both of them?
You could also try to add some more silence zone (with less details), where the eye can rest a bit, and maybe some point of attraction where you want him to go?
Interesting job, keep it up!
