Hey guys & gals, here's a recent painting. Still not sure if i'm done with it. Any advice or ideas?
Pretty cool! I like greyscale pictures.
A couple things could help out though. The left person blends too well with the trees. A "halo" like the one the right person has would help. He also needs a bit of light. Because he's right behind a fully lit person I'd expect him to have some lighter areas. Just a little bit of light would help.
The front guy's vein pops way to far out. I guess you're going for an unnatural look, but unless he has other veins like that it still is too attention grabbing.
Hello there Lone wolf,
Two things that got my attention right away were his shirt and his face/head.
I think it would be a good idea to take a reference shot of someone in that pose with a shirt on. The wrinkles look a little overdone, and the way you've shaded it, especially up on the shoulders, gives the illusion that he is only a few inches thick, like a cutout. (in the chance you did use reference, post it I am feeling we could figure out what is going wonky in that area)
Onto the face/head: His face looks more like a mask, it doesn't merge with his hair, they seem very much like two seperate entities. He's got that thick mop/spike hair thing going on and it doesn't seem to fit with this illustration. It also gives me the impression that he's lost the top of his head, but not that it was intentionally drawn to look like that.
Would love to see you work on the illustration more, take care.
Don't forget to read the stickied FAQ's before posting
Thank you guys for the crits.
Marie- I didn' use refence for this. Your right about the hair, it was originally very short, which I changes last minute just for the hell of it. I'll either change it back to the original or work on this more?
staylor- Yuor right about the person behind him, he's way to dark. I kinda wanted the veins to pop out. but maybe i went to far.
Thanks again guys, will definetly work more on this pic.
Very well!!! I like this art.
....But, there is no life
