    Tree of Life (Need Criticism)

    Hi guys !
    I've jsut "finished" this painting, but i feel that's it's not correct
    I'm missing something, I don't know if it's the light, volume or either color.

    i dont really know how to help with this as its stylized and whilst thats not a bad thing, it does hinder a lot of advice on form and things like that. first i would say that this is a rather dull composition, it shows absoulutly no character as you cant read any real facial expression as its wearing a mask, or its got a woodern face? and cant read any body launguage as you cant see any of its body. also there is no consistancy with your lighting, the glow from the primary light source is from the top left, yet the majority or the cast shadows are cast strait down (exept the gotee feather?)

    marko djurdjevic said something i found usefull that is when a character is wearing a mask, its a good idea to show some expression through the hands. i would say pan out at the very least, maybe change the pose to give it some magic or if you want to keep it strait on do something like below. but of course you want to convey a different emotion. so maybe look at images of vader or some other antagonist with a mask for ideas.

    hope this was helpfull and not an ear bashing. good luck!
