You come out with some amazing concepts.

My only nit is that the floor reads like a wall.

This ptg has a lot going for it!!! Probably getting the floor into perspective (larger diamond shapes going smaller) would make it even better! I like it!!! :)

Very interesting painting. It works technically except for the floor tiles. They aren't in perspective. Flatten out the diamonds to make the floor look "flat".

heehee,,boy have we ever all been there! I love it..and although the perspective commnets are correct, it doesn't actually bother me..I gotta love the little map pins..awesome..
I would like to do a painting showing someone enjoying Creation around them..and this makes me think of it..putting an observer in whcih we are observing..cool concept.. :clap: :clap:
Hey you could do another with "I get it!! " :wink2: :D :D :cat:

Funny how the 3 new guides were all the first to post. Looks like you are putting in your hours. James :wave:

Thanks everyone :) I can sure see what you mean about the perspective being off, my question is, How do I fix it? I want to keep the diamond pattern, I will lose about a half inch along the bottom when it's framed. (That's why I thought I could get away with it...lol) I would like to correct it tho, so any hints would be greatly appreciated, including digital alterations.Btw Angie, you are not the first to make that observation :D

What a great idea!!!!! and well executed except for the already noted floor :clap:

Great idea and soon as the floor is sorted (or it could be a very fancy skirting board!) it will be even better. :clap: :clap: :clap:
Those pins are very realistic my eye was strangely drawn to them first.

Thanks everyone. :) I spoke to my art teacher and she suggested floating a shadow along the bottom of the wall to create a bit of depth. I used a bit of "Brush and blend "and some ivory black. I like the way it looks, and it was a lot easier than repainting the diamond pattern...lol Any and all comments welcome. Thanks

Nice job. That completes it IMO.
