I like them all. On the last one (pepper) the girl isn't fitting into the palette at all. Maybe it's the skintone which is very cool compared to the surroundings and the lightsource which seems to be different than the rest of the image. Try to put some colors from the environment on to her skin/clothing.
The city district is very cool. But for the last ,the face of the girl bugs me a bit.
Teazr: Thanks alot mate, and yes i totally agree with you. it's quite a major problem with this one that makes the picture unfinished, this is a collaboration between me the environment artist and Jean Park, who did the character design for this one. although in the end we were quite pressed against time, we did manage to have this in at the last 10 mins mark before the march 1 dead line. i feel more time to polish would really help. some of my friends brought up this problem too, but i think it's only wise to sit down with this one for another couple of hours to really finish the look. and bring the colors and contrasts together. thanks, really appreciate it.
spookybabydoll: thank you, i'm glad you like the city district one. i think the thing with that last piece is that we kinda got mixed in between a more simplified style and a relatively realistic style.. and it didn't really work. the line art for the character looked right, the painted version however, lost some of that emotions and feels to it, since we decided to leave the line art out altogether. and believe me you are not the only one who told me this.. hehee... i'll still have to go back to this piece, hope i can push things around and make the face work.. cheers!
Duman : hey thanks!.. The last blue zone is actually one of my first matte paintings, alot of the photos used were taken on the toronto lake shore and on the water. i used some of "resurgere" photo stocks, don't know if you've heard about it. it's free too and great interesting images, not the practical texture stock.. ah ha.. protoss.. starcraft 2 ftw..
Liked the first one most... but the others are great as well
Cool works, I like most last one, with girl. She has very interestend design. Keep it!
a update retouch of my previous painting "pepper Nymph"
this one is a d'artiste - Digital Painting 2 submission.
various color adjustments, adjustment to the face, blending, refined details, new focus element added.
thanks for the comments and critiques on the original piece, i hope i fixed some of the problems mentioned.
your composition work is very good. and i do like the improvement on this last piece. Good work
If you think you can t Draw, just draw more
