Temple of the Lost World by GabrielWigren Temple of the Lost World by GabrielWigren
I went for more of a cinematic look this time around and I think it turned out quite okay. All in all it took approx. 7h of hard labor for me to finish this picture.

I haven't quite worked out the story of the picture, although I am sure it is an epic one, but I believe it has something to do with a pirate (hence the appearance of a wooden leg at closer inspection) who has an unhealthy attraction to colorful banners and thus decorates this ancient temple with an ample amount of them.

I may be wrong though, so what do you guys think?

Only 7hrs? Well done! Looks very proffessional. I think your story fits perfectly. We all need our dose of insane pirates C: I must ask though, if its ok, how did you get the lens flares? I've dabbled in PS but I haven't hit on it yet.

Hey, thanks. So this is the first time I tried doing lens flares. And what I did was that I painted the lines with a round soft brush and made the square shapes with the marquee tool. After that I played around with color and settings. Nothing fancy;) And I used this painting as ref --> [link]

Just ask if there is something else.

SAWEEET! Love the color and the lightning a lot.
Would love to see the buildings on the left side (images) a bit more detailed.
Other than that - awesome!!
Cheers

I think you've got a wonderful layout here but the light streak is the middle is an example of one of the compositional issues I was telling you about. It's a big focal point right down the middle. The sun is at the bottom third though so that's all good. but when looking at this I just keep going up and down the streak and miss the man and the buildings.

maybe the story could be something like...The location can only be found after passing many trials, trials only the bravest can triumph over. The flags could represtent all the great people to arive there and the pirsate stanging there could be about to triumphantly place his flag =]

Not really just a fun and interesting way to see what other people see and how they interpritate things from the picture, there might be something I could pick up and use.

I think you've done a really great job on this, nice texturing, great sense of scale and an awesome colour palette. Simple but very striking composition I think I have a new desktop background :)
