No, I'm not ripping off of Oomatu, this is my own thing. xP

There's a weird difference in textures between the rock and the sand. Like, different than it should be. The sand looks like colored water.

I like it, though . The colors are nice, and the rocks look pretty cool.

I see what you mean, but the thing is, sand from a distance really does resemble water. :stuck_out_tongue: Here's a real life reference:

So, yeah, mine is not perfectly realistic, but this isn't meant to be exactly true to life, as it's just concept art. :stuck_out_tongue:

Like @jayzor17 said, the sand is a but watery, but it's also too smooth and lacking the dunes regular deserts have. It also stops right at the horizon in a straight line, which looks odd. Other than that I rally like the rock formations and what is probably Pohatu.

@BBricks @jayzor17 Know what, if two different people are pointing out the same problem, I'm just gonna redo that part. xP Thanks for your input, I appreciate the critique. I'll post the (hopefully) better version soon. :stuck_out_tongue:

Sand aside, I do like the colors here and the presentation of the canyons.

I don't like sand.

Its coarse, and dry, and it gets everywhere.

the sand just kinda looks like weird fog,but everything else here is super well done

Thank you for your comments guys! I appreciate the feedback, it helps me make my work better!

Okay, so I'm still working on another draft of this picture, but this is what I have currently. Right now @LQ1998 is helping me to improve it too, so shoutout to him for his help.


I know the sand STILL isn't that great--I looked up several reference images of different sand textures and it's just a lot of work to make it look real. xD That, and since it's both from a distance AND in a more simplistic style, it's hard to determine how much to put in.

Hey the sand is like a kajillion times better now.

I like the shading.

I think I have an idea to touch it up a little more: specifically, try to touch up your shadows to have a darker inner shadow with a more defined line that then fades out some more. this is pretty well done on your dunes, but it isn't as well done behind your rocky outcroppings. I feel like it's nearly there so keep up the good work!

Okay, I can definitely see that, and it would definitely improve the sense of space Thank you!

can't wait to see how it turns out! :wink:

Yeah this looks a lot better

Aright, fortunately the shadows were an easy fix. Hopefully this is what you were referring to, @Innodence

And yeah, this did help it a lot xD
