I'm having  challenging time lately finding the best composition for my landscape artwork.  Perhaps I've been spoiled or tainted by my arch/viz career, where an image always has a center of interest (such as a bathroom vanity or kitchen sink area), and is always rendered for print at 11x8.5 ratios...

But I feel the need to delve into more panoramic renders for my personal artwork, and find it a bit frustrating to decide on and implement focal points.  I've read up on tradition landscape composition techniques; maybe I'm just trying to cram too much into my scenes?

Anyway, I'll be posting up some recent works-in-progress for you all to critique, so stay tuned and don't be nice about the scenes, please!  Let me have it.  I could use some new ideas!

Thanks for making such awesome artwork!

I really suck at characters/people, and tend to stick to landscapes and scenes more as a result. :)

Thank you for the support! I will try to keep making WoT art as long as I am capable. As long as there are people out there who will enjoy it I am always pleased :)

Hello! One your older Wheel of Time fan works (at least, it was attributed to you?) is being featured this week on Fan Art Friday on Dragonmount.com: [link]

Yep! That's one of my older works, but I still like it a bit. After having read The Shadow Rising a few more times, that image looks nothing like my mental picture of Cold Rocks Hold now, but it was a fun and interesting piece to create! Hope you enjoyed it too.

Hey there my friend! Any new personal work? I rarely log on to CG Talk forum since I'm forbid to comment there for some reason - so don't know what you doing there so far too. Are people still arguing about "the best 3D software in the world" ? :D

Take care and spend some time for art! :highfive:

Hello Kerem! Been working on some big art projects, but I fear they're so damn complex the progress is tedious. I'm currently sculpting a buddha statue for a nice little mountain path scene. CGTalk is ridiculous as always but often there are piles of useful tips and techniques too, along with the heated discussions which I try to avoid anymore.

Take care as well, hope to see more work from you soon too!
