    Discovery

    Haven't posted in the critique place in ages so I thought I'd get some feedback on this image. The story is that this woman has come across this new form of alian life but doesn't know if its hostel or friendly. Tried to show mixed emotions on her face. Unfinished and sketchy, just to see what you people think about it so far.

    right now it looks like the blob thing is a reflection off her helmet lit from behind, it took me a while to see that it was floating in front of her. The girls eyes aren't focused on the blob and it gives a 'zoned out" look to her face.

    probably just need to shift the angle of the head then, I'll try to dim down the light as well and define the alien thingy a bit more.

    I think moving the pupils slightly more to the mid could help more than moving the whole head.

    This alien creature seems to be very close to her face so that might make her look more focused than she is now.

    Your face is looking a bit flat. I think the problem is that your lighting is too inconsistent. Using a stock scan of a head, I did a render utilizing light placement similar to your painting to show how the light and shadow would wrap around and define the face.

    Thanks dudes, this is more of an evaluation type thing, so things I need to do more studies of: lighting conditions, some more facial studies, and more value and color studies. Thanks guys if you can find anything else from this image that seems off tell me so I can study it and fix my problem areas. Thank you ^_^
