Really awesome oil paint feel- I'm really diggin' the skin tones. Compositionally, I think you might have a little problem - My eye also keeps settling on the hand/camera in the lower left - I'm following the brightly lit finger back down into the camera instead of up into the left girl's face; if you squint hard that finger jumps out as strongly as the highlights on the faces. Regardless, fantastic brushstrokes and awesome skin tones. sexy.
Thank you very much)
Misael here is a refrence pic
Sevans i did think that if i will draw the girl on the left a little more detailed so i will underline the face of second girl on the right ,now i think you right , they are too close.
Marz i agree you absolutely right i will remove that flash from her finger or better i will remove this hands with camera at all it true only draw away attention from the main , thank you for help.
I think mods should move this mooshy PAINTOVER to the critique section.
I think you should paint from references, mkure, not on top of them. Either that, or you've got the most accurate copying skills ever.
1. Save painting and photo.
2. Change painting's size to 700 pix wide.
3. Drag painting on top of photo and align both vertical and horizontal centers.
4. Set painting's layer properties to multiply, and joila, paintover!
next time i will see no paintover. also no color pickup from the reference foto.^^
take time and learn without paintovers. is better for you and we can give you good critique. take a reference picture and choice the colors from the palette.
also you will have no own style when you paint paintovers.
you have the tool, the tablet and the talent to paint your own stuff, soo try it.
i dont think paintovers is your biggest worry here. Your biggest concern should be copyright, i suspect the top photograph was taken by someone else, if you published your first painting without any kind of written permission from the photographer, there is a very big chance you are breaking certain copyright laws. Be carefull when using referance, or it could land you in some serious trouble.
The girl is pretty, I love how she is staring into the camera with such intensity. The moment is well captured, it does make you think about what the other girl is saying or screaming(?) in the other girl's ear.
Unfortunately in this digital age posting up a quick lineart does not prove that it wasn't a paintover; it's at least a drawover. It's apparant to anyone with half a trained eye that that is what has been done here.
What you are doing is fine as an excersise, but unless you are the photographer, it should never be considered "your" work. As one of my old instructors was fond of saying "Immitation is the lowest form of creativity"
by all means, don't stop trying to create art, but art is so much more than importing an image>going over it>deleting source image. It's blood, sweat, and tears and I fear that this wonderful modern age and it's artistic "short-cuts" is killing that in favor of "pretty pictures"
