So I'm beginning my painting career. I know I've got a long way to get to the level I want to be out. This is pretty much my first painting. Hopefully I'll have a lot of little paintings coming your way.

I know it's pretty weak, and there's a lot to fix. Critiques are welcome.

Painted in photoshop, about 3 hours.

First off.. I'd like to say it's a beautiful piece.
There are technical flaws. Which by no means makes this any less beautiful.
My suggestions would be to soften your detail lines.... so it's an easier transition of color and shape. Perhaps add a bit of of depth to the color of the sky.... to make the planets in the background pop. If you were able to reproduce this picture... but with softer detail lines and added depth in the sky, you'd see the difference. :) It's just a technical issue.
Your color use is fantastic. they are real colors for the terrain. Including the highlights, which makes for a realistic picture. :) For your first painting though, thisi s absolutely fantastic. :) Keep up the great work!
What do you think?

However, increasing the hue and saturation in my opinion would do a lot of good :)

Yeah, it probably could have used a little more post work to tighten the image. Thanks :)

First off, this is great, and beyond what I am capable of at the moment. It has a very traditional feel to it I think.
For advice, I'd say it's extremely detailed - likely because of the intense spacescapes you're used to making which are filled with epic amounts of detail such as all the minute stars. However though I like the detail and textures, it is a bit overwhelming, and having too much detail in a piece can make it difficult to lead the viewer's eye where you want. I'd suggest maybe having some simpler areas (such as like the land in the far distance) in amongst the fore and midground too. Just to break up the composition.
A good example of what I mean can be seen in this piece here… and I'd also suggest looking through the rest of Jorge Jacinto's gallery, it's pretty inspirational I think
Hope this helps, by the looks of this I don't think it'll be too long before you're at a level you're happy with!

Composition is good.  The clouds could use some work I think.  They're not bad though!  When I do a rough sketch I'll make something similar to this but for an extra bang it might help to vary the form and concentrate on the lighting of the outer edges.   Also I think you drew over the bark of the tree on the far right.  ^_^ 

Hey about the clouds though, here's a few of my oil studies regarding them.…,…,…
Maybe they'll help or maybe not lol.  Anyway I hope it at least gives you some ideas.  I hope this helps; have a great day!  :)

If this is your first painting, then oh my God, you're a master in the making.

That's the end goal.

To my untrained eye, it looks perfectly fine! :-)
