I haven't had much time recently to work on my own projects, but I want to thank everyone who gave critiques on the mountain picture. Here's a progress shot to show that I'm attempting to address the various problems that many of you pointed out. I haven't gotten to everything yet, so don't worry too much if you see something awry still. For those who suggested that it needs a story, you're right (Curses! Why do I never think of basic rules like that until I'm deep into the painting phase?). Still, I don't feel too bad since that wasn't the point of the piece; it will still work just fine as the painting process tutorial I wanted to make.
