yo, i appreciate the support dudes. anyways this might be the final one, not sure whether its better than the previous or not though. only difference is lighting and its not really a drastic change.

i kinda wanted to add other elemets like shadowy baddies like aby arty suggested but at the same time i didnt wanna infused a supernatural feel to it, rather just a regular thriller kinda thing.

Anyways which do people like better?

I really love this piece, but if this is your final you should give a little more lighting, so that the characters get more depth and it looks more like a final picture....

something like this. ( hope you don't mind )

Hi, you should look if you could get rid of the red " lightrays " than it should be good. We should see what others think, but i think it suits the picture much better.

yeah now ur talkin pardner.

u know bluish grey trees will reallygive it a feel of a rainforest of death, u shud try that.

right now it is looking like tv series lost. the tob raider element is faint in here , and the skull is still going unnoticed .

u knw what u can do make it so that they are entering ruins of some building or structure.

u could change the tree in the forefront to a fallen pillar wth some engravings or glyphs , or mybe a warning sign buried under it.

and there needs to be feeling that the trees are way too tall , and the sunlight is coming thru them in very fine rays , show some part of the ground lit updue to ray falling there. u could use some lens flare as well.

build up the wall on the side too , its looking as if its sort of a lump.

and u could more on here face.

So you prefered that he created another picture :-p I actually like the mood in this picture. The hunters are walking through the forest into a darker part thinking that there is nowone around. They think they can get out of the forest alive, but only we " the viewers " can see that the skull behind the fallen tree. It represents that something is coming. The hunters don't know that yet. So the viewer wants to say " look out!, don't step over that tree " That is what i feel with the picture. I think its pretty good.

hey guys:

@tjerkotten, when u say remove the red rays im uncertain as to whether u mean remove the sunray things completely or move the hue away from the reddish colour thats there now?

@aby arty: yeh some of those suggestions might take a lotta time to implement... although i certainly agree that its not quite tomb-ish. in the outline i did there was some kinda structure on the right which may hav had glyphs and stuff complete but i opted to remove it because it felt just a tad too outta place.

i feel like its pretty complete really as if i added much more it might seem somewhat jumbled.

well i never said it was a bad piece , i just said few things can be added.
its always upto you CLP , if u think its feasable go ahead with it if u think theres no time then leave it.

well after tjerkotten put his point of view of forward i think u only need to tweak the lighting a lil and her face is a lil flat.

but if you do wish to change the tree u can copy all layers u used for it and then merge and play with the hue and saturation.

if u want to do a pillar just copy the layers merge and do it flat black then wth large brushess put the color of ur pillar , to make the pillar faster select wth lasso and fill thn clean up the edges.

in the end its upto you.

I think you should remove the rays all together. Keeping the attention on the characters. I don't think we need to see the lightsource in this picture because the characters are so close to camera.

it's also my opinion that a little bit more light is good. but like tjerkotten i think that the rays are not usefull in this case. to me the painting has this wet, dark mood full of suspense and these rays don't fit in here.

but that's just my taste, the picture's still wow!
