heh, since you asked......

it's really jsut a palette issue that  makes the dirt and the grass fight each other rather than sitting on the same plane.  the dirt is established as being underneath the grass because it is so warm and the ground is warm with cool figures. 

heres an obnoxious MSPaint edit to show how they can be brought together by integrating green light and base to do a few things:



1 - reduce independence of dirt by lowering perceived saturation (complements interspersed = gray overall)
2 - incorporate into ground plane (by adding a cool light)
3 - maintain "heavy" atmosphere (by keeping a warm green base)

just a thought :P
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

It looks really washed out now with the darkest shade in the ground being replaced by the green. Overall i think the piece could use more contrast.
thanks Dogmeat!

You did a very well job, a pity you don't expand it with buildings and all

the boy seems out of place (especially his hair) but otherwise you did some great work and progress! (palette could be optimized a bit though ;))

It didn't before he added the boy...

Zyndikate,

IMO your should either reduce contrast/saturation on the boy or increase saturate/contrast on objects placed on the plane close to the "camera", to make them match.

I decided to take the boy down to the ground(probably overdid it :) ), the outwashed was a choice I made on the way - I never tried it before really, I always made saturated and contrasty pieces and this is somewhat new grounds for me.
This have to be the last, I almost spend another hour just adjusting the palette. I already done that enough hours for this peice. :)
