Really great Andy, Way to kick off the blog.I'd like to see the mans shadow cast onto the animal. I like how you're using complement colors to draw the eye but the saturation seems a bit much. I think you can down down the saturation of the hat and the bags.
Thanks for the comment jon. I forgot the shadow of the guy on the animal. Doh!
Hey...something I was wondering.. why is the dude on the right side? Is he going to or from the tomb; if you flipped the image horizontally would it read better? Also, what is the most important element in this image, the dude or the tomb? right now they are about same size and same height in picture plane, so hierarchy is hard to discern. Not like I did any of that in piece though..lols
"Are you guys artists or somethin....Ummm, I think you guys should squint."Anyways, I think adding the tiny little figure closer to the tomb help the scale a little a bit. I would suggest add a road path or something to connect the tomb to the figures. Something like this: http://image1.masterfile.com/em_w/00/15/90/700-00159082w.jpgor this http://www.vectorstock.com/composite/807031/highway-road-vector.jpgWell, it doesn't have to be a modern road pavement, but you get the idea....
I do have a tiny figure and path leading to the door. Guess it doesnt show enough.
