    room

    hi I was wondering if i could get a few quick thoughts on this one so far, mainly on the boy and balance of the piece. I know its pretty risky to put a figure in the corner like that, let alone the fact that he is looking off screen and is lite, but I'm hoping there is some movement in the piece, what do you think?

    I was thinking of possibly blurring the boy but i'm not sure if that would remove him from the image to much

    I like this piece very, very much. Especially the balance between a common boy's room and the game elements. The boy looks like a resident evil zombie indeed an you keep wondering whether the spots on his shirt are actually part of his imagination or ... ketchup. Awesome!

    hey! nice work James... I don't 'think' you should blur the boy out.. when I look at the painting, the boy is the 'center of attention'.. it is what makes you look around the room wondering what is going on.

    One thing that I don't quite understand is the window. It feels very flat to me? is that how you want ot to be ? or are those black-spirits 'alive' , i mean.. not a 'poster' ?it feels like a poster with holes in covering a window with strong sunshine outside

    If they are 'alive' and out to get him so to speak, a tip is to show that they are getting 'through' the window.. showing an arm on the inside or something..

    but then again, i'm not sure if i'm interpreting the painting in the right way :/

    Also.. I think its a good idea bring the brightness up a little bit on the boy.. add some highlights..

    cool painting!

    Very nice, I love the idea and theme. The colors are an interesting choice, the red overtone certainly becomes creepy with the zombies right outside.... The lighting is good and the boy's body seems well proportioned. There is a nice amount of detail and texture and yet the painting style is very subtle. I love it! ^_^

    If you have time, any comments would be helpful on my sketchbook: Jesi's Sketchbook' o' fun

    I love the idea and all the detail. If the zombie spirits are real, and you didn't want to put the hands through, which I think would be kind of cool. But, if you didn't want to do that, maybe smudge of the window from their hands and skin or add some scratches showing them trying to get in. But, really great job on it.

    ah thanks for the crits I'm very relieved to hear good things cause I was scared that the boys placement was a big mistake. Yes the creatures in the window are "real", not a poster, I'll have to work on them a bit heh heh, still undecided if I want them intruding the room or not, I sort of want the room to be his safe zone but it could be cool to have them coming in and as you said it certainly would solve the flatness issue. I wanna finish it tonight so I'll try to post the finish as well. and if there are any other critiques they are certainly welcome, thanks!
