    The force is blurry in this one! .p

    Like the color picks and the pose, it's neat.

    Just, ah, it could use a bit more sharpness in the brighter lit areas, would make it easier on the eyes.
    There also seems to be an unfitting blob of solid color on the collar.

    Hm, and, hm, I'm not quite sure about this, but seems to me like the left arm would curve inwards in an odd manner after the elbow, looks kinda thin there.
    And I think that curve serves to give the wrist an odd skinny look.
    Yeahh, the visible angle at which the arm goes from the wrist deos not IMO match the angle under the sleeve.

    That's about what I can think of for crits.
    Overall I think it's quite neat.

    Notice the sharp edges?
    Notice the defined light source?

    No, I think youre orange tones are good, but you need highlights of the same orange light on his clothes, like the old guy painting has omn his.

    That was lame. He's just telling you to sharpen your edges and define your light source. Don't get defensive just because your painting isn't the Holy Grail you'd like it to be.

    Er, no he didn't. He just asked if they were noticed.

    Also, that left hand needs a bit of work, the knuckles line up perfectly and the arm looks very thin.

    Yes, I was being sarcastic. I was also offering a critique.

    Just because something is sarcastic, doesn't mean it is malicious. There were different ways of taking the comment. One way is in good humor like how it was presented, the other is mean spirited and prick-like... which you chose.


    Lighten up.

    And how was he supposed to know you where throwing the sarcasm in a good way?

    Sarcasm is often malicious and it is a means of mocking people, it should be left out of critiques you make to people you don't know.

    ^snap!

    Well, I think you would benefit by using different brushes. Are you using Painter or Photoshop? If Painter, theres some great feathered oil and camel hair brushes that would give you a good texture like Rembrant's painting. But everyone is right about the light source. His shoulders need a strong highlight because the green ish tone is blending in too much with the background.

    Feel better getting your 2 cents in? It is also used as a form of humor between friends and a main driving theme in many modern day comedy films. It is all the intended connotation and how you take it.

    hi,

    One thing that struck me was the perspective of the feet.. it looked like they were squashed onto a canvas.

    If you working digitally, simply expand the canvas out, you can always crop it for the final image.

    I agree with the comments so far, even the sarcastic ones..

    (try not to take jokes on here the wrong way, they may be at your expense, but still, they do you no real harm.
    If they are said to your face, then you can reply with your fists. )

    I did a quick paintover.. I'm not the greatest with anatomy (I'm developing my figure drawing too) anyway.. I hope its helpfull.

    First of all, that Rembrandt repro is very yellow and oversaturated, the original is closer to something like this:
    Name:  aristotle-homer.jpg
Views: 335
Size:  103.0 KB
    Secondly, a lot of the tone of the picture is due to age and yellowing. Those skin tones look natural in the context of the Rembrandt painting because all the other colors are effected by the warm tone as well. In yours, the cool green-gray of his tunic and the almost purple color of the hair are out of key with a warm light source or atmosphere, so the orange skin ends up looking like jaundice.

    Old varnish is a killer. That hand needs some serious work on it. Grab a mirror and look at yourself.

    Nope, not friends. Never met the guy. Just trying to illustrate a point.

    That looks more like how I remember it Elwelll.

    I think the orange lighting on the skin kinda looks a bit different to the rest of the picture. I'm pretty sure it could be remedied by using more orange lighting on the clothes, and making the background have a bit of an orange hue.
