    Girl and Shadows

    Haven't posted here in a long time. :] Well..i'm a senior in high school and am trying to improve my photoshop skills. This was a painting i did for practice in a day. Any suggestions for me to improve? Any type of critique is welcome!

    It is very important that you keep in your brushsets a few brushes of which opacity is not subject to pressure sensitivity.
    And use those brushes to block in your palette otherwise, never painting at full opacity, might result in washed out colors.
    I dont know if im making sense but im saying this cause it looks like you needed loads of brushstrokes to paint the bloke in the foreground when only 2 brushstrokes should have done the work.
    You see what i mean?

    Thank you for the advice! :] i actually wanted to make the figure on the foreground to be sketchy and slightly transparent with a lot of strokes but i guess it didn't create that great of an effect? haha.

    The area is so red so the cool shadow of her face is not working well, the light should be reflecting onto her face after hitting the wall, this gives her a red light source even in shadow.

    i'm kind of confused about your comment, can you clarify please? are you saying that there should be some red on her face as well due to the red on the wall?
