    Tried to paint a picture and I was having some issues with it.
    Here we have the work in progress and a resketch after some suggestions from friends, which, incidentally is a bit closer to the original image I had in mind.

    And also some loosening-up sketches. For funsies.

    Thank you Seage.
    Most of my art is oriented around stories and whatnot, so it's really nice to know that shows through.

    Wip of the repaint.
    But I've been told by about three people I'd have to start over on it to get it looking decent, so I've opted to put it off for a while.

    Your stuff is looking nice! I love the movement and originality in your characters! I think the painting with the wrapping scarf thing is awesome, and you shouldn't give up on it at all! The only things i would suggest are the angle of her right foot doesn't quite seem right, and you could afford to push the contrast in your tones a tad more, although i think you're improving in that already having said this your already 100 times better than me so amazing work keep it up and i'm looking forward to seeing more!

    Jams, and some concept crap for a couple of stories.
    Need to get into doing some serious studies on environments and objects.
    And composition.

    Thanks for the encouragement, A-May. The piece just got picked apart well enough I figured I was wasting my time trying to push it through as a finished product. It's something I'd be better off starting over on when I can lay down a better foundation.

    You have a brilliant sense for design! Your figures are really good and the have loads of movement. Painting doesn't seem to be your strong suit. The drawings are at a way higher level. Keep up the good work

    To be perfectly honest, I was just going along with some peer pressure. (And maybe mildly curious as to my house placement- I've always figured myself a Gryffindor or Hufflepuff.)

    Anyway, thanks for stopping in!

    Wow, your art is cool !
    I think your best strenght is expression, attitude, gesture, while you weakness might be landscapes ! :p
    I'd suggest to practice some more , and do studies like the boats one at the bottom of first page ! I think it would help you telling stories if you can create landscapes with a good atmosphere in them.
    By the way the interior study looks good !
    Hope it will help you !

    Hah. Sadly I don't know a lot about creating atmosphere. I'm personally under the impression that's best done with light/texture/color, and I need a lot of work on all three of those.

    Anyway, as suggested, more background sketches/studies here.
    Thanks for looking!
