    Hannes' and Jana's paintover thread :D

    Hey everyone!!

    Hannes and me have some spare time and after getting the scholarships we thought it would be nice to try and give something back to the community. Anyone who's been on cgtalk might have seen that thread by Steven Stahlberg where people can post their images and he'd try to help them by doing paintovers and explaining and critiquing. We thought we might start a similar thing here, we're both no Stahlbergs but maybe we can help at least a few people

    So here's how it works:

    1. Post an image you're currently working on

    2. Wait while we'll try to help D:

    3. ???

    4. Profit!

    Cheers!
    Hannes and Jana

    Makes me want to start something just to get owned.

    This would be a nice thread to sticky, as I know where I'm going the first time I need a critique now .

    Thanks guys. You're awesome.

    Hi Alexson!

    Here is my overpaint:

    I'm not very good at writing and I hope the overpaint mostly speaks for itself (thats why I like overpaints) but Hannes literally forced me to do () so here is a try:

    The monster and the girl dont really look at each other, I know changing the monsters' head would mean that you cant show the dragons head directly but it would help the storytelling I also think the dragon needs a bit more space. Important image elements should have got enough place to breathe!

    Did you use any refs for the girl, especially her face? If yes, it looks like you also reffed the colors. Try to think how the skin would look like in that kind of light situation. The whole light situation looks a lot like "studio"lighting. There should be a lot cool light reflecting from the sky around that scene.

    Ah and I also added a layer of waves between the monster and the girl, hoping it will bring more depth in the picture Dont know if it makes sense.


    I hope it helps! D:

    Hi Jana!
    Hm, I don't even know how to say how much you improved what I spent hours on in like 10 minutes. Every brush stroke I would do from now on would make it crappier and crappier I think.
    What I mean is thank you very much!
    I only used a mirror for her face as a reference with the girl during the sketching but the weird light I think is the type I'm most comfortable with from studies etc.
    I just need to study more, basically. And I will

    Thanks again, jana and hannes!

    Aw you guys are too nice for doing this! I am not happy with any of my work right now, but a HUGE problem for me is not knowing how to fix mistakes even if I see them

    Here is a fairly recent image, what bugs me the most is her face... don't know what to do with it anymore Any other thoughts on how to imrpove upon it are welcome, of course!

    You 2 are awesome. I love what you are doing, what you do for the community, what you do for everyone.
    I'm not an art hero myself, it's been a dream for a few years, but I have put the dream aside the moment I realized I'm just a huge art fan and nothing more: not an artist myself.
    But I'm still wandering around on CA.org to fulfill the art-fan part of my life and you certainly got a HUGE fan over here.
    Just,.. thanks, for everything, keep up the awesome work you are doing. Big respect from Belgium!

    P.S.: this thread should have a big retweet button!

    Donna I'm not anyone of the OPs... And far less skilled. But I think the face is allright. What's bugging me more is her lower body. While her upper body is turned slightly to the right her legs and feet are facing straight towards us. The perspective is a little strange too as it looks like she's tip toed (though maybe her shoes are that way). I'd try to find a way to make her look less rigid and stand more comfortably.

    (And yeah. Awesome thread. I'll see if I have anything to post later... thanks.)
