The Green Castle Town by NatMonney The Green Castle Town by NatMonney
A quick speed painting I did months ago. I think it's pretty nice, so I decided to put it here. It was maybe 2 hours of work, but hell, can't remember :/

Done in photoshop, as usually.

Thanks for watching! :)

First of all, I'd like to say I really like the overall work, it's very good!

Well, I can say I like the way you worked the shading/lighting, it's very consistent. I also like the blurred effect you applied in the farther buildings, giving the idea of fog. In my poin of view, your work don't have a strong cromatic contrast, but the colors you chose were very well combined.

The way you painted the sky is also very good, I can really tell that was a stormy day in the picture.
Last, but not the least, you managed very well your medium.

I hope my critique motivates/helps you in the future and keep it up!

Wonderful speed painting!  I hope I can do this soon.  I normally don't have the focus to just get in Photoshop and do this.

Nice! One tip about atmospheric perspective is instead of using blur to use a soft brush with a lighter value and more dissaturated.
Also even on a speedpainting using things like the lasso tool to allow you to maintain your edges sharp where needed would really help the image read better. Also I like your color scheme. Hope that helps :)

Thanks! I see what you mean, but I wanted to have a camera view style instead of a real atmospheric perspective only by bluring. 
I don't really like/use the lasso tool on this kind of paint, which tends to have a traditional look :) 

Thanks again! :glomp:

I see :) I'm glad you took my comment under consideration :huggle: I'm used to seeing artists use blur when they don't know how to convey depth! :D

Speed painting?
It would take me years to sketch this out let alone paint it..
