    Platonist's pale reflections

    Hi
    I'm Jon

    I'm kinda nervous about starting this SB as I'm new to the world of digital art in general and photoshop in particular.
    I'm unsure of both the quality of my work and how useful/valuable any critiques or advice I can give may be (though I'll do my best!)

    Anyway, Here goes!

    Playing with light

    This started out by playing with light sources.
    I've also been looking at old ChoW threads and the idea of the dreamcatcher caught me, so thats what evolved into.
    I may polish it up a bit at a later date.

    Anyway: The Dreamcatcher.

    Where am I going wrong?

    Given the standard of many Chow entries, I don't expect to get through to poll. I enter because I dont usually get a lot of practice at full figure, most of my drawings/paintings being portrait/busts.

    I figured I repost my entry for Chow 145 here and see if anybody would point out where I'm goin wrong?

    A little more playing with light. And the beginnings of an attempt on Titania (I know its too late for the Chow, but I want to finish it!) I'm not happy with it so C&C would be appreciated.

    the eyes of your india guy are a little squiffy - I did like your drawing of the old lady a couple of posts up, looked really realistic.

    Thanks for posting on my SB ^_^

    Yeah I was having some trouble with them... they do kinda make his whole face look a bit mashed to one side... hmmm...
    That said it was his half smirk that made me wanna draw him in the first place. The other people in the ad (that is the models) were taking themselves so seriously and he just looked like he was trying not to burst out laughing.

    Castles in the air

    I think I'm regressing. Ive just read Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones (she also wrote Howl's Moving Castle). Its supposed to be for kids, but its a fun read nonetheless. Anyway it inspired this... I think its probably the best thing i've done with photoshop yet (not saying much I admit.) Let me know what you think.

    Time for an update

    Hallo all,

    not posted for a while so felt an update was in order.

    The first one started out as a rough doodle of some sort of goblin or troll, I think it turned out quite well.

    The second is a work in progress inspired by the art of matt wilson.

    As ever, let me know what you think.
