I don't really know, but……I would assume in the first book, where they first introduce Sazed.

Here's my painting of Vin flying over Luthadel.

Lots of stuff I'd like to fix, but I'm capping my time on it at 5 hours.

Wow, that looks great! I love how you drew the light peeking out of that little window behind the curtains. How you showed the mist was cool, too.

The only suggestion I have is that maybe you could add a bit more texture/shading/color variation to the sky to make it seem a bit more real.

:o very nice! I love the buildings! Vin not quite so much, but hey.

Also you've probably noticed this already but there is definitely something wrong with the perspective on the windows of the brick house in the lower right. Both windows should probably be about the same distance from that line below the eaves there.

Well, the second one should be a little bigger because it's closer…you know, perspective. But yeah, the first one's a little too small at the moment.

Thanks, everyone!

Yeah, the list of issues goes on and on. Perspective is hugely off. Vin's proportions are off and the pose is stiff and kind of flat.

Ideally I would spend more time on my art. But I'm lucky if I get 5 hours of free time per week to paint.  And if I have the time, sometimes I don't have the energy to focus. If I let myself, I think I could work on these for months and never finish. I've got a lot of other things that I want to make progress on, so I sacrifice some quality in order to do so.  The artist in me cringes.  The pragmatist in me says to keep moving forward and do better next time.

mking: That is Awesome! You should do a couple more in this same vein! Maybe Vin and Zane chasing eachother through another misty panorama like this one. I LOVE how the city came out and the mist and everything!

Very nice especially given the time restraints. Hope you spend more five hour segments this way.

"I think making art is always about setting up boundaries for yourself. If you paint a picture, you decide, 'I'm not going to paint anything outside of these four edges.' If you make a song you can decide a few basic things...and in every artistic situation you have to figure out the bounds between a freedom to explore and create without criticism and then you're going to have to figure out the other side, which is reality. How long am I going to take to do this? I can't work on the record for ten years; I'm not going to work on a painting for 50 years. I mean, some people do, but they only have one painting at the end of their lives."  --Isaac Slade of The Fray

I don't see the windows as a problem. I mean in perspective they might be off in size but not if the window to the left was actually smaller. I mean who knows what some architect in that world would design. I do know that I've seen weirder designs in the real world. I agree with you on her pose, a little stiff but otherwise I think you have a really good painting there. I think that if you gave it more time and energy you would have worked out some of the issues that you found but with how much time you have available and the quality of the product you should be happy with the result. I would hang one of your paintings in my home anyday.
