    Icon Doodles and Donts

    In an effort to keep myself more disciplined, I have created this thread.
    so feel free to verbally abuse me and tell me to keep working hard at not sucking so much

    These are pretty decent, but I think you're encountering issues with your value structures. Try overlaying a solid layer of gray with the layer mode set to saturation over your painting, and flick it on and off occasionally to check how the picture is working in black and white. You might also get some mileage out of doing some studies of photographs in gray-scale. Value is vastly more important to a successful picture than color; nail it, and the picture will probably work no matter what colors you use.

    That would be my main critique; I think you're moving too quickly in your pictures, going straight to a finalized color piece before figuring out the drawing and value issues. Best prescription for shaky foundations is more studies, from life, photos, and the masters.

    I agree with jcpahl, but I do have to say that your perspective is spot on. It's not easy drawing an island floating in the sky.

    Thumbs up Thanks All for the comments:)

    jcpahl:
    thanks for the advice. I only 2 weeks ago even gave value a real hard think. And have added a black layer on top set to saturation to check the values out...you're reading my mind!

    Telephonoscope:
    "Perspective...oh how I hate thee"
    I have a trick for checking perspective..though in the JOURNEY BEGINS piece I don't think I used it...some of the ships and building are off quite a bit.
    But here is a great and FREE tool I have found for perspective.
    Perspective tool
    watch the video tut and use it as you need.

    Unhappy Suggestions?

    any suggestions on how to improve this piece?

    Well I didn't feel like waiting around several weeks for a response, So I just started some experiments
    and AUTO LEVELS made a HUGE DIFFERENCE.
    now I feel confident to start some of the minor fixes
