Finally Finished!! Wasn't sure if I as suppose to put this into the Finally Finished forum or not...
what does intermediate level mean? I guess no one paid for this so it isn't professional right?
But I am almost done with school...hmmm... anyway!
What do you guys think? My illustration class loved it, but thought that the waves of color should fit the curve of her head more.
I used a very James Jean way of working. Sketch, then digital color... no watercolor layer though, will try that next go.
If nothing else thanks for looking
I understand that this is a finished work, but since it was moved to the WIP section i'll still put my two cents in.
I think the "waves" of colour in the background don't look too good. They seem very out of place, and sort of ruin the effect of the bright, unrealistically colored birds coming out of a realistically drawn person's mouth. (which is a really nice concept by the way, i like it!) Personally i think a plain colour or realistic background would have made the birds pop even more and make them the focus on the picture, while right now the background is too distracting for the wrong reasons.
Also, the outline of the girl's head looks somewhat too blurry.
Yeah the more I look at it the more I really agree with you two. I think the background needs to be rethought... something as simple as a saturation change in places could really help. idk I'll have to play around with it. Thanks Ravatta for the compliment about the concept!
