Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
I am mostly self-taught, so I really appreciate any advice people have to offer. I started learning digital painting less than two years ago, and started drawing maybe about five years ago. Every time I learn something new I move on to the next challenge, meaning that most of my work isn't exactly solid. This summer I'm taking off time to look for internships (I'm an Advertising student) and to finally get serious about my digital illustrations. Please please please critique! I would really appreciate the help. Thank you.
Work In Progress! n_n I am trying to stop doing ten things at once lol. Lines first, everything else later...
Random fashion design...... yeah. xD
you've got some great ideas/concepts !
the cherry one in the first post looks great
some things I've noticed, your use of color is great and your rendering skills are on par with that but you're lacking a lot of the basic foundations which is what is off about some of your pieces.
Try focusing on doing some anatomy studies because the anatomy is off for both the females in the early posts, especially the cherry girl in space, the foreshortening is off. Her torso is much too long.
As well, I see you're avoiding rendering the hands, don't! It's a weak point right now but that just means you need to do more studies of them
Lastly, stay with me xD I think the rendering is much too soft overall which means you lose the distinction between background, middle and foreground, try to sharpen some areas more and really push those values.
hope that wasn't too harsh ;s
keep up the work!
Thanks Duplicitious, that was very helpful! (: Hands... uhg! I will definitely work on the anatomy though. Does anyone have a good free resource for full or partial nudes in dynamic poses? It's so hard to find a pose that isn't just sitting or standing.
Next thing I post I'll try to have a better distinction between foreground and background. I really appreciate the advice!
I took your advice and used a reference on this one, and also a harder brush. (: Work in progress:
I'd say take the time to put in some studies and then apply the knowledge in an image
Thanks. (: I decided to take the other rout and try to have more fun with it first LOL. Yeah I'm so lazy.
Hmm, doing more dramatic light stuff.
