This is actually a remake of my first digital painting, as a way to demonstrate how much I have improved over the last nine months thanks to feedback, friends, and a lot of hard work. It's not the fairest comparison since the former was done in an hour as opposed to this one which took around 6 hours (damn details in the rocks take forever). I think that at the time of the old one, I had just been introduced to the concept of "values", just to show you how far behind I was on any sort of art education...
You can see the old one here: [link]
Or a side by side comparison on my blog:[link]
Enjoy, and share your improvement/horrible first paintings too if you want
