Hiya, I have been having so many problems with this piece. I don't think the colours, values or composition are working and I have really struggled with correcting it. I know that some parts of the...
Started off doing a few pieces over the weekend :)
I found this painting to be a weird one as Waterhouse chose to have the value of the women's hair so close to the trees in the background but...
My name is Sally Jackson. I have worked in-house in the Games Industry for the last 3 years but as of May 2014 I would like to start freelancing! Here are a few examples from my...
Hi guys, I have been working on this piece for a while, would be awesome to hear some constructive critique to help forward and improve the piece!
Thought I would just post an update :)
Thanks guys, you are right the mirror was perfect, feel stupid for not doing it before D:
And yesss Jason you are right the forearm is much too short :)
None, I couldn't really find any which had the same pose D: If you happen to have some that would be fantastic :)
Hi guys, would really appreciate some help, I've been having real trouble with painting the girl's hand holding the doll, I just can't seem to get it right at all and it's driving me nuts! It just...
Never said it could be :)
You have come along way in this painting, it is already nearly finished, but there are tons of perspective problems that I literally don't even know where to start D:
The guy on the right looks...
I thought that too initially, but if you look closer what at first appears to be a belly button is infact a cut, once you find where the belly button really is, you can see it is a flat stomach :)
Anatomy-wise the only thing that strikes me is the lady on the left. Her arm is quite stiff and the upper arm is too short. I'm not a whiz on muscles but they don't seem "right" either. I generally...
@ Jeff - There is not much point in providing a crit, if you don't be more specific. It is easy for fresh eyes to see where faults lie in a painting but not for the artist so you need to be more...
More like this?
Too many browns create a muddy look, try adding some blue and purples to lift the piece up...
Needs more of a focal point. Hope this helps.
Dunno if you will like it or not, just messing around :)

Love your perspectives, you seem to be very experimental with them. Makes your paintings real unique :)
Excuse my horrific rendering of a sword haha but you get the point, maybe even slant the sword a bit more to the right so the guy appears more frightened and stufffff :)
Created a layer and a set it to "Multiply" where I used a bright orange brush to go over the background. Created a new layer set to "Overlay" and used a mixture of purple, light and dark blue and...
I really want to help, but it is difficult to do without seeing your line work :)
We can't see her eyes, we don't know whether they are open, closed, looking at the viewer etc
Just create a new layer. At the top of the layers box you will see a drop-down menu. It is automatically set to "normal" change it to "overlay" then whip out the soft edged paint brush and set the...
Hope this helps -
Just played around with overlay layers and bright colours :)
I think this could really benefit with a more interesting colour scheme such as this -
All I did was create new layers set to overlay and go...
