Hey guys and gals, I haven't posted on here in FOREVER, so I figured I'd dump some of my recent work on here for viewings. :)
Thank you everybody! I agree, revboyjames, that arm does look a bit stagnant. Perhaps he should hold it by its jaw strap? Or even like a football player would hold their helmet?
I'm a huge fan of your color choices and poses. Your animal illustrations have a great simplicity to them and they make me giggle. :)
Wow man, your work has such a great sense of motion and life. Beautiful textures and color choices as well! I'm really glad I saw this.
Hey everybody, I've always been a huge fan of the Rocketeer and figured I'd try my own spin on it. It was a lot of fun working in a more cartoony style! Let me know what you think. :)
I did a quick paint-over to show you how I think it should look in that perspective.
(Sorry about the cropping! I couldn't Print Screen the whole image. It shouldn't get in the way of what I'm...
I think you should find a design that keeps everything centralized on the same page. That way, a certain style for your page is established that will develop a visual familiarity to your site,...
I think you're starting to lose a lot of the character/style that you had in your drawing. The initial drawing is quite nice and I think you should strive to preserve its integrity.
Thanks for the advice RimHooves, I appreciate the compliments as well. I'll see what I can come up with based on your critique.
Hi everyone, I've posted on here a few times but am still relatively new to CA and am really hoping to learn a lot from everyone here.
I'm still working on the piece as a whole, but would...
Came up with this design today.
There are two things that visually bother me when I initially look at your tear sheets. The first has to do with the white background. Given that most of your paintings are done in the darker end of...
Thanks a lot, I'm new to CA and hope to learn as much as I can from you guys. More will definitely be on the way.
Hey, thanks for the great advice. I took what you said and have made this progress so far. I'm still working on bringing out the face a bit and it needs a final pass at detail.
What do you think?...
Really focusing on improving my lighting and overall painting skills. Critiques welcome!
Thank you for the comments! I was hoping to eventually take that design into 3d and sort of have cartoony proportions w/ realistic textures.
Hey, thanks for the tips; I'll try what you suggested and see what I can come up with.
Your ideas are fantastic and I really enjoy the gestural feel of your work. It feels alive. However, I think you could push your colors and lighting a bit further. It feels like they need a...
Been working on these here and there. Critiques welcome!
I decided to go monochromatic for now so I can better grasp the lighting. I've also started to flesh out the background. I've never painted a landscape before, so this has certainly been a learning...
I decided to redo the painting to hopefully get a better sense of light and shadow. I also took it a bit further in detail and added a snake as a tail.
What do you think? Thanks guys!
Thanks for taking the time to critique my work. I agree, the lighting is a bit murky; as you said I do still have yet to apply the highlights, although, I feel that the overall lighting should have...
I came up with this tonight and would really appreciate some solid critique/feedback before I go any further. It feels a bit overworked to me. In any case, thanks in advance, your help is greatly...
I took some time int he past couple of days to paint out these concepts. Your critiques and advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
