I would appreciate some input on this. Im trying to do a Armageddon type situation where monsters and demons have taken over. I would sure appreciate some input if anyone has any.
I think you've managed to capture the Statue of Liberty quite well, so I think you have some keen observational skills. Also, added to the very frank post above, look at bat wing references to add some more dynamic realism to the front character.
Another piece of advice I would give is open up the canvas area some more and give yourself some more space to play with.
so the so the demon with the wings was not working for me and it was not telling a story at all. I want to make this look more realistic but I am just having a hard time with it. but for now this is where it is any tips would be greatly appreciated.
thanks all for the input so far? Question. What colors would you go with to set the mood? Thanks all again!
crickets, its important that you have fun and paint thing thats interest you.
But if you want to improve, you need to begin with much simpler things. This image is much too complicated for your current skills. Start with composition of still lifes. Learn good value patterns and composition. At the same time, you'll be improving your painting application too.
Eventually you will learn to make thumbnails, and your images will leap forward. But you're not going to improve with your current method.
Again, I would open up the canvas to make the image more wider. Then have it so the creature on the left and the statue, sit one third in from the canvas edge. Then, honestly, I would loose the 2 smaller fighter jets and keep the one in the foreground (which I think looks awesome by the way). With opening up the canvas, I would then move the jet in a little closer and more to the right. This way, the composition should be a little more balanced and the whole image a little less claustrophobic feeling.
To get a sense of distance I would add some atmospheric detail in and cover some of the monster with a little haze. Also, don't forget to pick out some detail in the golden colours on the actual statue and some of the light from the explosion would hit the surface of the structure. I've done a very very rough paint over to show you the direction I would take it in:
Thanks I will continue to work on it and try to open it up. I appreciate you taken the time to do the paint over thanks again!
