Oh, you were already posting here! Saw some of this on conceptart, good to see you here and awesome work man.

Btw did you vote yourself 1 star or something, haha. Seen a few people do this, makes me think I should take out the star rating system.

yeah heh

Liking your art, I have one suggestion for tightening up that last image. Sometimes if I create a painting and it looks a little too soft i'll apply a photoshop filter to it. Usually drybrush or watercolour. My other suggestion is adding more atmosphere to the photo. What I tend to do is make a new layer in photoshop and either use a solid color or a gradient of 1 color. Then i decrease the opacity or change the type of layer to soft overlay or something (whatever looks best). In your's i added a light blue gradient from the bottom up, and added a watercolor filter (settings are brush detail: 14, shadow: 0, texture: 3). The reason I thought a blue gradient would look good was it "cooled" the rocks down and made the water a bit more watery looking, and was a nice contrast tot he hot sun/sky. I'll post a picture of what it would look like. I can also send you a photoshop file of what I did if you're interested in looking at it. Sometimes the filters look good, sometimes not, just go with your gut. You could also just sharpen the entire image or areas that need it.
