I like it. I have some issues with the perspectives, maybe you could have concentrated the panoramic view in some defined focal points, would be more harmonic...

I agree with fedetony with there being some perspective issues, but I really love the attention to detail.

Lots going on here but I like it! It's telling a story and it all looks like fun.

Nicely painted and the detail is amazing. And...welcome to WC!

First of all, it looks like you have put a great deal of time and effort into this. I like how the picture tells a story. There are many interesting things to satisfy the viewer here.

Some things you may want to consider:

I feel as though you have created two separate pictures on one canvas with no element of unity between the two. I see a picture on the right, and one on the left but there is no unity of the painting as a whole.

I think another problem is that the painting lacks an obvious focal point. There are many items contained within this piece, but no one thing has visual dominance. I would downplay some items and emphasize those objects/figures that you want to be more dominant. That way the viewer doesn't feel the distraction of other less necessary items fighting for first place.

I hope this helps. Once again, nice work. :)

First! Please post three images of the painting, each 600 pixels wide so I can see this beauty.

I like the story aspect and how the scenes just blend together. But I can also get behind the "wandering focal point" comment... which would mean having a more dominant object and less of a "comic book style".

The other major comment is that the central wood pile really blocks the view and confines the painting. If it could only be to the far right...

I like it. There's a lot to explore.
