Under qualified my arse! Don't let that distract you, you will find the perfect company for you! BTW this reminds me of Brill in World of Warcraft :P

Congratz on the DD! :D

Someone else mentioned that the orange/brown in the foreground is a bit distracting, and I tend to agree. But other than that, this is a wonderful piece! I love the long, panoramic view, and it has a really terrific, spooky atmosphere. I can't help but wonder what's in the house on the hill. :)

Not really mainstream, but not bad at all. I love the 2D-yet-3D aspects of it. The cobblestones are well-painted... :huggle:

What the hell do they want mainstream for?? Shouldn't people want something original, something different? Why the hell would they want mainstream designs; that's not going to stand out!

Yeah, this happens in China, mordern Chinese are very conservative, not as creative as theire ancestors, they dont appreciate original, they worsh money, commecial is the god. I know in west world artists of all kinds are respectful, that's very enviable

O_o That still doesn't make sense to me; isn't standing out at least a bit from competitors the way to go commercially, too? I mean, if everyone is only interested in 'mainstream' I don't understand how they are going to be commerically successful, anyway.
Well, if there isn't much creativeness there anymore then you should be proud of your work and should keep it up, because i would definitely call this creative =P

DO NOT LISTEN to them! I work in the industry and have a clear idea as to what's up-to-standard, and your work is really amazing! Advice: kick that company out of your roster and listen to us: the consumers. We LOVE it!

I would think that it might pay to ask what does not qualify. Did they give you a theme to follow? A specific style etc.
Reply
:iconphomax:
phomax Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, this is a very successful iOS RPG game in China called 'Draon Force', it's a classic Fantasy style, very mainstream, I still don't know why im not qualified either, maybe that Art leader didnt like me personally

...."they say the style is not mainstream.."

I feel for you on that one... :(

Everyone's style is different- no artist has the same brushstrokes when they paint. I really love the overall feel of it. The brick path in the foreground needs more of greenish/turquoise tone to it, but I still think you have the talent to do great artwork- better than I could even do.

Keep on painting! :)

phomax Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Yes, brick path is very awkward, not blended in, maybe this is why I get rejected, haha, thanks for pointing out problems=)
