    Maple elemental WIP

    So far I've done this watercolor study in my sketchbook:

    I'd like to paint over it digitally, so critiques are welcome.
    The colors will be more intensive, since this watercolor study is pretty pale.
    I will have to use more atmospheric perspective to keep the colors on the figure consistent with the plant, but make it stand out from the background enough to be visible in the thumbnail as well (currently it's not standing out enough, but I don't want the colors to be too different on the figure).
    Any other suggestions? Anything on the figure that needs to be fixed?

    First thing that caught me was the fact that the figure doesn't stand out at all.
    I took a quick look at the picture and thought, "Why is the flagged for nudity? I don't even see a person."

    One thing I really love though is that her wings are the little helicopter leaves, that's a nice touch.

    Yeah that is a problem, which I hope to solve by putting more contrast on the figure and leaves in the foreground, with less contrast toward the background. If that doesn't work I'll have to change the colour of the figure I suppose...
    Thanks, glad you like it

    Her butt looks a little funny to me (note: I don't know anything about butt anatomy) and the background (sky/leaves) seems a little...patchy?
    Will the words still be there in the digital paint?

    It only needs the leaves behind being a bit darker make the figure stand out. The figure is about 6 1/2 head high, so a teenager. The butt is a bit narrow and is not sitting on the branch, they shouldn't be so curved. Good luck with the digital.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.
