Amazing! Beautiful atmosphere and concept. Especially like how it feels like the viewer is hiding - makes me feel like Adam Jenson :)

Happy New Year Stefanie. I was too busy to comment before but now I have some time so here it goes.
First of all you've done a great job on this piece and by the looks of it you are really dedicated. 33 hours on one piece is hardcore in my opinion.
My likes:
-the realistic feel of this piece
-the lighting overall
-the composition is great

Things that I think you can improve on:
I would say first of all that try not to settle on a concept too quickly, you should try and use a couple of hours just trying out different compositions and settings on paper before you
commit to any one design. I would say 2 hours without reference just doodling away ideas. That way you'll have a really solid foundation to work from.
Remember that this is a concept group so we're more about the look and feel of the environment and the innovation than the overall finish.
Finished illustrations can take a very long time and time is money so use it wisely.

I know it takes a lot to just enter a competition so well done and keep it up!
I hope you have an epic 2013. :hug:

a happy new year to you too!
thank you for taking the time to give me some crits.
haha – for me 33 hours is already 'fast'... :D

of course you are so right – i really need to loosen up! for my last pictures i already did some quick sketches – but you're right i should give them more time and be more playful in the first stage. this is definitely something i want to work on this year...

thank you - loved that game! :D
Wow, reminds me so much of the warrens in Nexus Prime! Great job! I love it. The walls and platforms look a little clean, however. I know there's graffiti and debris, but otherwise they look brand new. I don't know if that's what you're going for, but might need to dirty things up a bit more or break some tiles or such if you're going for more of a grunge feel.
