Mines under the Cyclopean Mountains by VonStreff Mines under the Cyclopean Mountains by VonStreff
Artwork for my Dark Tower project. The mines in the book are actually pitch-dark, except near the station. I guess the station could be in the distance. I've uploaded an edited version, making it darker.

Here's the final video: [link]

This is pretty excellent, but I feel like many of your pieces could use a few more hours of work. Some of them are flatly colored landscapes, with only outlines of mountainous or rocky regions. If you took them all to this level, and then worked on them for a little while longer, then I'm sure they'd be fantastic. Especially adding sharper edges and details to your pieces, that'd make them really 'pop'! Then again, I'm sure you already know this, since I've seen more of your work and seen what you can do. I'm loving the colors in many of your pieces.


Great stuff, man! :)

Thank you!! :) This is exactly what I want from people, proper criticism. Thank you so much. I do plan to spend a few more hours on pieces, and get them to a higher level. At the same time, I really want to perfect my bases paintings before worrying about rendering. They aren't that great yet..

Thank you, again. You are very kind! :)

Really nice, the light adds an extra level of composition that works really well with the dark arches.

Thank you. Yeah, I try to use more and more elements to aid composition and dynamism.
