    oh yeah! this is sweet Tiff! I think it turned out just fine. I'm digginf the variety of personalities you've got going on here. I'm still weary about the overlapping of the two guys on the right. You nailed the guy in the middle though (that sounded really bad). nice touch with the bundle of chest hair on the old guy on the left. haha. keep on keeping on!

    Nice work!! Perhaps you could push the value a bit, I dont see too much dark darks. Otherwise really great piece, especially dig the fact that it's oils.

    Wow, incredible that you tackled so many figures.
    The woman's face is great and I love the main guy's face as well.

    very nice tiffany,

    I love the sleeping sculpt on the bottom.

    wish I knew how to use oils that well! Maybe someday soon!

    Very nice. This has a great feel for it. I really like the variety of faces and expressions. The skin on the woman in the center is beautiful too. If you get the chance, post a detail of her if you would. I think that the background feels too unfinished compared to the rest of the piece. The castle on the right in particular. This is a bit of a nitpick, but after looking at the piece a little bit, it stood out. Very nice colors and great piece. Congrats, now I have to go look at your site! Don't know how I have missed it, I have seen you around here for a while.

    great stuff Tiffany

    I'm having trouble making out the form of what I take to be a citadel in the distance. Perhaps its a bit too loose. Rich coming from me, I know. But the grey haired fella on the right looks like my old chemistry teacher, who was cool, which more than makes up for any flaws.

    A bit too many angles imo... a patchwork of people... Individually, they are well painted though, and the man in the forground carries intruigue. I'm not sure about the backdrop.l..

    This is really awesome, Poise! Love the woman and the colors on the tomb's face.

    The whiteness of the background bothers me a bit - I feel like there should be more of gradation from the foreground to the background, but I get that it's representational.

    lovely cover poise!

    i think it would definitely interest me in reading the book, plus it puts a face to all of the characters. just one thing i noticed was that the guy with the grey mutton chops is lighter and less contrasty than the person above/behind him, when normally it would be the reverse.

    I love the wooden border! And the folds in the mustache guy's shirt. The statue's feet are smaller than her hands tho... that kinda jumped at me.

    Hey Everyone Thanks for taking a peak and for all the nice Comments and crits.
    Hey Rich: haha! I nailed the guy in the middle? well the model was my man so you know that could have a double truth to it, ;P Thanks for the crits Rich, I totally see what you are saying, so thank you
    Fvallejo: Hey thank you for stopping by, and thanks for the crit.
    InvertedChalupa: hehe thank you
    hey Emily: AH! thanks chica, you know it was sorta daunting doing so many figures, but I'm glad I pushed myself, and it was fun really trying to realize so many different personalities. Now I think I have a faint idea of what my mom went through, she had 5 kids.
    Hey Justin: Ah thanks man you make me *blush*.
    lyon: hey yeah I agree with the background, I might volumize the clouds a bit more and sharpen/flesh out the building. Thanks for the crits and compliments.
    Simon: ah! Thanks man! you know it always warms my heart when you comment on my art, thank you thank you!!
    Puddin: haha you know yeah I think loose is one thing when you have the values right and I don't, so thanks for pointing that out(that wasn't ment to be Sarcastic, haha). Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.
    Cloister: Hey thanks for the crit and comments. Not sure what you mean about the angles, but I think I know what you mean about the patchwork of characters. They are a diverse bunch aren't they.
    bluefooted: hey thanks Girly! yeah the white is pretty flat, maybe I will play around with it and see what looks better. Thanks for the crit.
    Felicia: hey thanks woman! ok I will post some Detail shots.
    notspecialist: Ah! I see what you are saying about him being lighter and I agree, so thank you. And thanks for the nice comments.
    Qitsune: ah! thanks Chica. Yes about the feet I didn't even see that, ok I need to do some fixes, thank you.
    Thanks guys for all the Crits and really nice comments.
    Here are some detail shots, Oh and the Girl originally has a blue dress, but the client wanted her to have a parchment colors dress, so I change it:

    What the crap, tiff? Howcomes I'm just seeing this now? You really pulled this out fast, it looks great. The color purity with that snowy landscape is really nice. Beautiful portraits, I love the border, and you already know that I love the overall concept. I have a few minor crits I want to throw your way, cause you know how I do

    Kinda nitpicky things, but also fairly simple fixes: First, I'd like to see the back edge of the cape softened, at least in parts. Right now, it's sooo *CRACK* contrasted against the snow and gives a slightly cut out look, while the edges on the other figures and other parts of his figure are handled with much more sensitivity. I know he's the main dude, but his upper body is where I want to look and not so much the cape. I think the harder edge can work nice up by the shoulder, but bellow that, it would add volume (in my opinion) to mingle it with the lightness of the background and maybe even bring some haze into the shadows at the bottom. When i cover that edge with my hand, the rest of the cape pops so much more.
    Also, the bald man's head has a line breaking the rim light which gives a sort of Klingon shape to his skull. I'd just blend the one edge light over into the other and see how that works out.
    Also (very minor), the dwarf's mace seems to be floating in it's holster a little, redoing the holster ring thingy a little smaller and a touch to the right seems more likely?

    You know that i crit because I love Overall, it looks terrific!

    Good stuff!

    Ok, this is just a comment on a minor detail from a member of the talentless peanut gallery who's jealous of your skill, so don't attach too much weight too it, but it seems to me that the snow-white background behind the figures doesn't merge with them very well -- I'm wondering whether a very subtle darkening and variegation of the background, especially toward the bottom as it falls behind the figures, might not lend itself to better overall unity of the image?

    Regardless, great work!

    This looks totally awesome. I love how much detail you have just hidden around the place... What did you use to scan or convert this into a digital format?

    Great! Something about the composition is bothering me, I think it is the cape of the dude that is covering his boot, that somehow bothers me...I don't know much about composition honestly maybe I'm wrong, but it somehows bothers my eye.

    Just that, nothing else from me honestly! I love it!!!!! Bravo!!!

    Arnaldo.

    Haven't seen much work from you lately, but this more than makes up for that The detail shots of the skin-tones are very helpful too.

    If I ever make it to The Big Apple, I'd really like to go sketching with some of you NYC artists (lots of talent over there it seems), but that's probably not gonna happen anytime soon
