    City of Myself

    I'm a 20 year old who just want to improve so that I can tell the stories that are building up inside of me. I'd really love to be a graphic novelist and cover artist.

    Any and all tips would be amazing and I am truly grateful!

    I like the portraits so far. A tip for your digital work: up the hardness of your brushes, your environment painting has very soft edges and is all-around blurry.

    Hey Angelique, you are doing great so far. Although I am not as experienced as other members, I would suggest to you when painting is don't be afraid to use hard brushes. Get some strong strokes in there, most of your paintings seem to consist of all soft edges and colors, don't be afraid to go wild and add contrast to the work. Foregrounds are usually stronger in color and become softer as they recede. Great job on that six hour drawing, it looks great!

    If you have a moment, Help me improve with critiques. thank you Sketchbook
