Wow. What kind of medium did you use? Either way, you did a very good job. It is misty and blurred exactly almost what you would expect for a waterfall city. The shadows are also really well done, especially since you're implying clouds even though the view of the sky isn't especially clear. It's nice seeing a white sky instead of the usual bright blue.

Omfg *-* It is amazing. Though i wish you would have put more detail on the temple, so you can clearly see the blocks and the other small details like the rocks on the cliffs and the water. It is so amazing *-*

Very interesting concept. The composition is dynamic and carries the eye throughout the picture. The use of light, shade and changes in detail used well to express depth. I love the choice of the birds to bring life into it. Water is very difficult to capture and I can see the areas where water is meant to be flowing but in some areas it looks more frozen than flowy, yet overall the impression is there. Thank you for this thought-provoking piece!

i always hesitate to critique digital art, since i have none posted, but one thing jumps out at me, the right third of the image, from the pyramid down, looks really busy, with radiating lines, and the vague suggestion of a pattern, maybe smooth it out?

I just stumbled upon your work through someone on Tumblr ("salt,sugar,sex"; [link]), and I'm quite pleased that I did. I'm a big fan of your illustrations perhaps mostly due to the innovation of your landscapes. I'm a sucker for fantasy looking lands I yearn to visit. Keep up the beautiful work.

Okay, you asked for critique, and while I'm not a premium member, I think I might be able to give some constructive criticism. Overall, the piece is well done, but too simple to be a matte painting or comic cover. A novel cover, yes, and a background, definitely. The lighting is great, the depth is great, the colors are great. The shadows give the piece a wide dynamic range, and you have touches to give scale to the piece. The important thing to convey is the feel for the environment, that it is a wet area with lush plains and a rocky sinkhole below. I think the piece could be improved by adding more detail to the foreground, and keeping the bg as it is. The level of detail currently in the piece should start to increase at the closest ziggurat. I like your work in general, and this is no exception.

Is this based off of the Dinotopia book's Waterfall City?

Either way I like this version much better than the film one :).

Awesome job, I envy people who can draw environments like this. So rough and seemingly sketchy, yet very epic and defined.

It's not based off of it, as I don't have offhand reference, btu it is definitely inspired by it! I read Dinotopia growing up and Gurney has his influence on me. :)

Thanks for dropping by!
