Oh. My. God.
I am left speechless.
Okay, I'm not, I like to speak my thoughts.
So first off, FUCKING AMAZING. I do not think that the two characters (which I have an idea whom they are *wink**wink**nudge**nudge*) are that impressively done, to be honest. But the background is breathtaking. The textures and details are so amazing. I would not be able to identify all the different brushes you used or how many they are because of how well they are blended in. The small touches of colors here and there attributed by the flowers brighten the whole thing up as well as balance it all around. The textures you added to the water, rocks and trees seems so realistic and yet at the same time subtle. The sunlight is very easily seen where it falls and how it hits and gives a lot of warmth.
Now, one thing I would add is some sort of textures to the clothes of the two characters. Placing the animated-looking characters into such a detailed scene kind of makes them seem out of place. And another thing is the loss of distance we get with the rocks making up the waterfall. I know that having them higher up on the canvas makes them seem farther away, but since the waterfall is already kinda in need of a vertical surface, I get the feeling that the rockes are completely vertical. But the flow of the water sais that the rocks go more slanted. So I would try to lighten the value of the rocks that are higher up, as if making them seem misty to the eyes, that gives the perception of them being farther away (according to my art teacher).
BREATHE!!! I NEED TO BREATHE!
Okay, I'm good. Really Danny, this is one of the best works I've seen from you, and I couldn't be happier to see it. Keep up the great work! (also, I hope you don't mind the extensive critique, cuz I tend to find them useful)

I think this might just be my best work yet :D I really scourged Photoshop to find the best brushes, and I'm starting to get the hang of painting faster by using nice brushes
I know about the two characters (seems you know who they are? :giggle:), I tried giving textures to their clothing but they just seemed dirty, because the kids are so small, the resolution makes everything pixelated so you can't really see it, so I scratched textures for them. I also realized she looks a bit flat, and I forgot the reflections for the flowers - whoops!
I didn't notice the rocks though, what you said is right, I can't unsee it now :P

The warmth and overall atmosphere was done by playing around with some features on Google Picasa, it's where I do some color correction, add vignetting, etc when I finish a work to add some oomph to the atmosphere of the paintings.

I'm proud of myself though :) I actually liked the outcome of this one :lol:

I really liked the outcome of it too. really, you've done something truly amazing with that background. I was left stunned and had to wait like 5 mins of staring at it to be able to formulate the words to explain what i saw.
I couldn't be prouder to see how you've grown as an artist and as a photoshopper. Keep up the great work Danny!
