@mr_carl: thank you! I think that the final resolution will be about 8000*5000, if my computer doesn't die. And I will add some postwork in photoshop (like depth of field, thanks to the z-depth map that Vue can generate)

now I'm working on the dragon's fireball. I used a volumetric light that can affect clouds. The second image is the z-depth map that I will use to add a little blur effect in photoshop (3rd image). the third image shows some postwork done in phot., i played a bit with some settings.
I have to remove the church from that place and move it elsewhere.

I think the colours are a bit to colourful, especially the green in the front of the image, it´s almost looks like it´s glowing.
I like the background a lot, it has a nice fantasy feel to it.

@mr_carl: you're right, the colours are too much saturated due to the postworks. Next time I will pay more attention

@NeoGeo: I'm trying to translate your post into a constructive criticism: if I understood what you are saying, there is "confusion" in the image (too much characters). Maybe you're right. But have you read the story on the first post? I only tried to create an image that can suggest little "stories" in all its parts (a kind of modern "horror vacui", do you know?). Moreover the softwares I used have limitations, with whom I have to fight. There is really nothing to laugh about: there's the hard work and the passion of a person behind the wip that you can see. Anyway If you have advices and suggestions, I'm hear to listen to you.

Little update

Wow, that's some big work, impressive. You're familiar with a lot of software.
Here is some comments:

What i like:
-The background city scene, this yellow lightning with the dragon, the mist, and the right coming light, this atmosphere is magical.
-The temple scene with the fight, it's dynamic, and an interesting composition.
-The chaotic side of the tree contrasting with the blue light of the wizard.

What I dislike:
-The posing of the ogre on the foreground, particularly its arm.
-The eye of the tree, the color is good but it looks like a traffic light, sorry for the comparison but it needs some more details/specular/reflection, i don't know...

I'll come again, bye.

things are going slowly due to the intense study at university... I don't know if I will reach the quality I wanted. I tried to change the tree's eyes in photoshop but the result isn't that great...[IMG] [/IMG]

there are some flying houses in the background

Good work here! I just think that the wizard's pose is very passive.. maybe he needs to be more agressive. Don't get me wrong.. is really a good work. You have done a lot of things in a very short time and this is more than I can say about the mine.
