    Kissing an Angel

    Started this recently. I'm trying to make sure the colors work together, complimenting each other. Umm just gonna keep workin on it, wanna get the wing started. As far as color and brightness is there a place I need to address, draw attention, or something I should think about while painting skin tones?

    Hey Graive, I like this alot. I think with some changes the angel could be more iconic. Here's a suggestion on colour and bg, hope it helps.

    I personally like the original colors. My critiques would be to sharpen up your strokes and girl with purple hair is missing an eye. Work on the hair and angel wings. There is an awesome tutorial on angel wings that you might be able to use. Please follow the blog. Thanks. http://conceptartmasters.blogspot.com/

    I also like the current colors and don't see any problem with the scheme (I am no color theory expert).
    Since the kiss is going to be an obvious focal point, I would really look at references (if you haven't already) and get that down, since currently, it doesn't look quite right or convincing to me. Along with that, I think it may be important to clarify whether the girl on the left was expecting the kiss or not, whether she's all for the kiss or if she is hesitant. The body language already somewhat implies that it was unexpected, but maybe you could draw in some hands (either girl's or both) to further express what is happening.
    The angel's eye looks too straight to me now. I believe at that angle, it should be a bit a bit curved up.
    Oh just noticed too that the angel's ear looks too pointy now. Should look flatter/wider from this angle.
    Nice start though!

    Haha okay, when I think of angels they have blonde hair with sparkling blue eyes and white wings.
    Maybe you could put a tiara on the angel and some feather/tassles hanging off her top to further the idea. Also, maybe the girl she is kissing is evil? Just ideas

    All awesome suggestions and observations. I think that by pulling the girl on the left's shoulders back a bit will heighten the surprise... umm yeah her eye is covered by the shadow, was there but I think I painted over it lol. Cool, I'll work on this a bit today. Thanks all!

    Here's a continuation. I'm trying to use more varied brushes, which I need to get used to doing rather than relying on just my rounds. I'm still not sure about the lighting, things just aren't POPPING yet. Do you think the background is causing this?

    Nice progress. No complaints, except maybe some neck muscle definition on the left girl since she's straining backwards some.

    the second version is much better. I love the idea and work itself.....
    Romantic, sweet, mysterious.... great!

    A few things which are not really worth noting but still:
    1. Shirt black line distracts attention. it's too black, make it brownish
    2. The second wing needs a few more lines) it's too thin
    3. The place where noses meet - I think there's sth like a black spot.... I guess you think shape the nose of purple-colored girl and thus shade the nose of the angel)

    Definetly the original composition. I have no reason to back it however something in my mind is telling me that whoever is on the left is more relatable and who's on the right is more mysterious? For some reason flipping the picture makes it feel like the angel is the protagonist.

    I'm not sure if i'm making any sense or if anyone feels simalar or not, but the point still stands that the original is better

    I like the original composition better as well. The color is working a bit better, especially since you darkened the orange behind the neck and shoulder of the girl on the left. You may want to darken this area even more to make it "pop."
