    Thanks so much guys! We're glad to not be useless for the first time

    Mc2mc2! How're you doing man!
    I thought yours was really nice, you obviously know how to render form and create depth and all that already, your values are great and the shapes work too! So pretty much only two things, first would be, perspective is always everywhere! And you can really use it especially if you want to make things look tall or far away, it's what can help you to really open up space. Yours had a pretty much straight on view, which flattened out the painting a bit. Dare to play around with angles a bit more!
    Second would be the composition, watch out to not have all the shapes the same size, big ones and small ones are what makes a scene appear detailed without being crowded! I also thought that the format was really too crammed, everything bumped on the edges, so I opened it up a little, negative space is just as important as the shapes themselves! Try to find a good balance. Anyways, not much to crit man, you're awesome, looking forward to being at TAD with you!

    Gee, guys, that's wonderful! Thank you so much for the tips and the PO, Janaschi, you gave me a lot of ideas to work on. You definitely fixed up the values, like a ton. You're right about the staircase. I just wanted to show a bit of environment, but I think I'll have to do it in a different way; show a bit of floor like in your version. Yours is also less flat.

    Happy birthday Hannes! It's my birthday too, so I guess I got a little gift from you two.

Hmm I dont really liked the stairs. They take too much place. Ahh I dont know what else to say, if you have question feel free to ask D:

    hi~ Textures are insignificant. I saw that you painted every single stubble, thats not necessary (you can also construct stubbles by using a blueish tones around the face for example). I would suggest that you dont use a small brush until the very end. Try to paint instead of using lasso tool and airbrush. Use a hard round brush for example. Do some photostudies and learn how to paint hair for example and how highlights work, how light works. Paint more, airbrush less

    Aw its late, I need to go to bed °_°
    Thank you so much! INCREDIBLE insight! You nailed it! I started from lineart and this was my first try at painting and removing the lineart. All I can say is, "I'm not worthy!" (in my best Wayne's World impression)

    Ooh ooh! What a great thread!! Can I drop one on you for your opinion?

    It was for the Chow, but I ran out of time, inspiration and reference. I kinda want to polish her up a bit more as I like the character but I don't know where to start. I'm better at people than environments. The background is supposed to be a jukebox throne and speakers with fleur-de-leys flocked wallpaper and platinum discs hung up, the theme is supposed to be based on 70's interior design.

    I really want to push myself to the next level and your insight would be invaluable, that's only if you have the time of course.

    Hannes and Jana,

    Amazing show of skill and understanding. I agree with everyone. You two are absolutely awesome and I see this thread going places. I will throw my hat in the ring. I made a thread for this image, then I found this amazing place of wonder.

    This character concept is my first in a series of new and fresh portfolio pieces. It is very important to me and I want to put a strong finish on it. If you could work your magic, I would be extremely grateful!

    Love the thread Hannes and Jana! Here's a wip I'm working on, I need to get some ref for the hand ( looks like I erased part of her chest/shoulder connection when I was messing with her hand) , anything else you can do to point me in the right direction?

    ( she's pulling a rose petal from her mouth btw )

    Thanks so much for this thread guys, you are truly awesome!

    Here's a ninja I painted, but I can't seem to figure out what needs to change, although I am not satisfied with it. Anything you do to it would be mighty helpful!
