    Critique needed

    Hello guys.


    I have decided to join this place in order to improve my works - yes, deviantart is a nice thing but with all this "cool" "nice" and "OK" comments comes nothing constructive.

    Please take a look at My perfect drug and let me know what you think.

    Thanks in advance.

    It is visually a bit unbalanced with the excess of weight pulling the eye too far to the left. Try cropping the right side a bit to reduce eye strain on the viewer.

    As the ego shrinks, so the spirit expands.

    I would add more highlights to the pieces of wire wrapping around the face, because right now they feel flat and are getting lost in the rest of the piece.

    The head seems pretty formless. Try constructing your forms and figuring out your light source and how the light will be reacting to the planes of the form. Even for a more expressionistic piece like this, it will help make your image more believable.

    Yes - it has floated too far on the left - thanks

    I have tried to do it, but it looked a bit off - probably it was my fault because I was not able to make it look "believable" - besides I needed to change PNG to JPG in order to fit the picture so it has lost it's original vividness. Thank you.

    It was supposed to look formless but maybe I have overdone it. I agree in 100% that it's pretty much flat - I will work on the lighting next time. Thanks
