    It seems there's a different light source on the eyeball than the rest of the octo.

    yeah, you could work more on the illumination and on the rendering of the image.

    I also think that you could try another background, this green texture doesn't make it too "appealing".

    The idea is cool tough, keep it up

    THank you, I'll try even more to upload a better illustration. All I can say is that I'm still a beginner.

    Joyce Andres, photo reference from FHM Philippines November 2009 issue. I have problems regarding the proportions, I can't get it which means I still need to practice even more.

    I wouldn't expect many more crits with that big copyright notice in there. The pros with galleries at the top of the page don't have it. People might think you have an exaggerated sense of where you're at.

    It's because it can easily be edited, I'll try to do a smaller watermark next time.

    Seriously, there's a million masterful digital paintings out there - no one's going to bother stealing amateur works. I'm not putting copyright notices all over mine. Even the really good painters here aren't.

    This is Nicole Brune from Pin-Up World Art. My 2nd attempt on painting with a reference picture.

    I gotta agree about the copyright. I fully advocate copyrighting your stuff, but when you use the picture uploader, it promps you for copyright info off the bat, so it's not necessary here. You can put your circle-c on your stuff, but do it small. Plus, that mark usually indicates a signed and finished peice, and folks are not likely to crit it, because the underlying message is that it's finished and therefore pretty much closed to constructive crit. As for your stuff though: I really like it. Nice images. I think folks would like to see what other stuff you do, especially in this community. Also, use the CA uploader to put your stuff here: you probably won't get a thumbnail otherwise.

    Also its a little ironic you slapping a copyright notice on things you obviously don't have the copyright to, like celebrity images.

    Ok, D-paint is right on that one too (good Call D-paint). No matter how good your work is, if you use a copywrited image(photo) without permission, you can get into hot water using it. If you are producing any art, there are specific laws governing what you can and can't do here. You can produce any work you like, but when you paint from a photo so specifically, you can't copyright it. You can present it as an example of your work, but as soon as you copyright it you are taking your art to a different place. If the wrong person sees that copyright, you could be looking at a lawsuit. Example: there was a school a while back in California that painted the seven dwarves on the building: a month later, Disney lawyers showed up with a lawsuit. Bottom line: you DO good work, but do it from public domain reference, or your own photos-IF you intend on copyrighting your stuff. You paint well-that's established: just learn the laws concerning image copyright protection. Looking forward to seeing your other stuff.

    Thanks, I read your posts. It's kind of hard to understand copyright laws. I asked permission before I painted the "Nicole Brune".
