    kinda sketchy

    My first ever posts.
    I encourage anyone and everyone to critique my stuff.
    Be as harsh as necessary, as long as you tell me how to be better at this.

    Welcome tylerfontes , great first posts, i really like the city. Oh and the cartoon ape is cool, his expression is great. Figures could use a little work, some more practice from life or photos always helps, maybe if you haven't already use a little bit of ref. Keep up the good work.

    thanks

    I apreciate the input. All the figure work from this post was done without reference and on a second look I see your very right. I'll try posting some more accurate work in the future. A million thanks.

    The proportions are screwed up. I did a quick paint over (I'm not saying that this is 100% correct. Maybe 99%. )
    Keep it up

    Not bad dude. It'd be nice to see some studies. The paintings are nice, but I've been told that drawing is important to learn before painting... For your matte painting (the first post) Try blending it into the paper more. To do this you can use a soft eraser brush in photoshop and touch around the edges. Another way would be to set it to multiply, but you'd lose all your whites. Try adjusting the papers saturation to make it blend more into the painting as well. I think the colors might be competing. I'll keep stopping by!

    Hey tyler
    Thanks a lot for the comment, very useful thoughts.
    Your chow has a great personal feel to it and a realistic edge i.e. The doombots are believably designed.
    The rendering is of a good standard and the lighting looks convincing. However, I think the colouring could be improved, possibly adding the complimentary yellow into the mix for the lighting would have given the piece more colour depth... saying this, the purple and green give it a psychotic mood, which suits the brief. A little more care put into the back drop would have been nice to see, particularly on the left hand side.
    Laters man

    Thanks for the comments callumbo. I wanted to make the pills stand out by being the only thing in yellow but I can see how it looks a little flat in color. That was my first chow and I didn't pay enough attention to the guidelines. It's less then 3/4 of the character,and I didn't post wips so It was disqualified. Oh well, better luck next time. But I voted for yours.

    Hey, wow, that looks so much better in my opinion!

    Yes, you lose the immediacy of the pills being the focus but i think you've got a much stronger image there. Shame about the 3/4 rule, I would have mentioned something if I'd remembered, my first chow as well you see. quite a lot to take in.
