    My Little Fantasy Gallery (moved from FF)

    Hello! I'm Rachel, AKA Elbourne, AKA Fiwen... I have a passion for fantasy art, and started taking digital painting seriously about a year ago. This is where I'll post my finished work, and I am ALWAYS looking for constructive criticism! I have a long way to go!

    So, let's start out with some of my recent stuff... Most of these are done while looking at a reference image, but otherwise from scratch in Photoshop. :)

    Get "Figure Drawing for All It's Worth" by Loomis, and practice life drawing in pencil for a few months. Pay especial attention to the planes, and overall anatomy.

    More usefully: you've got a good eye for seeing the large masses, but your sense of edges and contours really needs some work. For the next one, you might want to try getting the linework as tight as possible, before you start painting or shading. As Arenhaus notes, an actual physical pencil is a much better tool for this than a tablet. You can always scan the pencil drawing and paint over it.

    Use harder brushes and think about the underlying structure more.

    Hi there. Welcome to ConceptArt.org!

    I will agree with Giacomo that you are especially good with blocking in color as masses. However, I disagree with the linework advice. I personally find that this adds more steps then necessary to the process, but use it as you see fit. I think a more efficient way to approach this is to use a harder-edged brush to sharpen areas where more of the focus will be. For example, the eyes, nose, and mouth are central features of the face that will need to emphasized and sharpened. Usually, things in the foreground will have sharper edges.

    Also, if you are planning to post multiple images, please start a sketchbook thread here.

    Hope this helps!
