Backgrounds are obviously not my strong suit--which is precisely why I need to make more of them! Practice makes passable, right?

Present photographic elements are from cgtextures and Mayang's texture library. Everything else sucks (...but I'll do better next time?!). I like dawgs.

I dont know ~ I am no expert ~ perhaps this is not done "perfectly" ~ but as a piece ~ the image is haunting!
i think you did a great job on this :) you rock ... plus i feel like this would go well with the character dante of devil may cry lol becuz of the darkness and the man looks a little like him lol
Looks great. The one thing that I think could be improved is the bridge and fire escapes (not that I could do better). They blend too much into the buildings. Although the smog/mist makes the bridge almost unnoticeable, adding to the flattened appearance. It also makes it look lopsided. The structure in the foreground could use some work too. The steps and railing look odd. Notice where the hand rail for the steps begin. Since it is partially obstructive it looks as if it was broken off from the railing on the upper platform where your figure sits. This actually causes to have a rolling effect, and doesn't look like a stairway is there at all; just some loose boards. Focus on the dog's head and you'll see what I mean. On the other hand, your rendering of the human figure and the dog in this image is flawless. As you said ,this is just practice, so I think you're looking more for constructive criticism instead of just another person telling you it looks great.
