Hey guys, worked pretty much all night on several things, pretty much trying to understand my stylus and use gimp to the fullest. This is a piece that I'm going to dedicate myself on until finished. So yeah, gimme some of that ol' verbal abuse.
By the way, I hate how you have to make images small just to accommodate, makes the picture look so nasty and pixilated.
Composition Wise this is dull and boring.
Balance wise: All the visual components are at the bottom of the picture frame aiming up, and yet at the top there is just emptiness.
Harmony: I really do not see any repetition or rhythm in regards to your composition.
Domination: What is the focal point? Is it the king being shot at? Or is it the archer doing the shooting?
Perspective: The hand of the archer does not match the position of the bow and the placement and size relation of the arrow. Also the rock is WAY out of perspective compared to the way the king is standing on it.
Could you maybe provide some thumbnails or possibly some references you used for this?
I'm not going to lie to you, I only did about one sketch which I posted, no perspective lines, or references (I'll look up cliffs, however I don't exactly get rendering on the computer yet). And these things seem so simple, I've been using them before. I just didn't think about using them now.
Thanks for the heads up composition wise, I already have a few creative ways to combat those things. Question on the focus though, I thought that the king was the obvious focal point. I attempted to flow the viewer with the bow and arrow towards its victim. I'm going to assume that better perspective will make the focus more evident. That, and I wanted to pay attention to detail a little with the arm, I wanted it to seem like the arm was recoiling from letting go off the arrow. But I believe that your still right about the relationships between the arm, arrow, and bow.
Thanks for the critique by the way.
Do some compositional thumbnails. The composition you are attempting to draw now is very lacking in many different areas. There is WAY too much blank white space at the top.
Where did it ever say that Humpty Dumpty was an egg?
here area some new thumbnails, went with a horizontal frame. I still want the perspective to be flowed through the assassin upwards the piece unto the king. I personally like the third one. It fills in the space vacant from the first composition.
