uh... you don't "try to make" a thumbnail. you just crop/resize it.


that being said i have no idea what its supposed to be so idk. it looks ok i guess?

It's pretty basic- I mean what do you actually want us to tell you? It's just a green sky with what appears to be unrealistically jagged rocks and what I presume to be a cloud?

There's quite a bit you could add. Perhaps studying actual barren locations such as deserts or quarantined areas (Chernobyl) to get inspiration for real wasteland elements. Put a bit more effort into even the basic components like the sky and floor. Maybe add dust/debris particles floating around and make the ground more interesting by layering it; a foreground with smaller rocks, all the way to a distant silhouette (like what you have now) with larger formations.

As for the cloud, if that's what it is, the shading effect looks very low quality and it looks like it's been slapped on for the sake of it. Maybe check out a tutorial or two on how to create better looking clouds (I know there are loads out there).

Right now there's not a whole lot to say about it. It doesn't look like you've put much time or effort into it, so I suggest you work on the concept a bit more before asking for constructive criticism.

You could argue a cartoony radioactive wasteland but yes a less vibrant green would be easier on the eyes.

Try making things a bit more straight-lined and not as round as I am seeing on this for the city, also a bit more cutting for the clouds and add a few more perhaps, the shading on the clouds should be a little lighter, maybe add some more fume colours on the head of the city, more blue for the sky too, also I see a glow right in the middle.. I feel as though it should be moved to another part on the frame
