Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and to Corel Painter. I recently spent all my savings updating everything...computer, software, and a nifty new Intuos tablet (if you're gonna do it do it right, right?) so I'm learning my way around the update/new software and this tablet. The piece below is my first time ever messing with Paint so feel free to point out things that could have been done better using some of the features...and as always, constructive critisism is always welcome!
Her nostril and the eye that faces the viewer bug me -- Im not sure exactlywhat but it's just a little off. Other than that it's pretty good.
Considering your title, what makes her a goddess ? Think about that
Okay so I made a few subtle changes to the image. I took Ksama's suggestion and cleaned up the lines a bit. I agree with needing the darker shadows to give it more drama I'm still trying to figure out how to do that in Corel without redrawing the thing. I also darkened the colors on the nostral piercing to help it stand out more, and changed some of the hue values to the skin.
Like I said, I'm still learing the ins and outs of Corel, I think for this piece the dpi isn't high enough, it's currently at 300 but it's still very pixilated up close and I'm wondering if I should go higher on the dpi or just bigger on the canvas so I can squeeze more detail in.
As for the goddess comment...she's a woman, and all women are goddesses...hence the name!

I still think it needs some more details in the face.. like someone said before id give it some darker shadows. Oh also im from pekin and know your brother eric
That far eye looks really high and the sameness of her skin tone is making her seem less interesting. The shoulders, bottom of the neck, cheels, forehead... these bits of skin have different tones, react differently to light (are also recieving light in different ways), yet they all have the exact same highs and lows. The hair also doesn't seem to be affecting the quality of the light on her face.
