Trying to push my comfort zone, doing a more complex peace.
I'm stuck on composition at this point. Please help!
He seems a little too far to the right. Or his other shoulder should be showing behind her head. Or something. Something bothers me about his position.
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
Give them a little bit more breathing room at the top there. They've got about three pixels of space between the top of their heads and the edge of the canvas/tree branch (?).
Check out my sketchbook! Socially acceptable opportunity to yell at a teenage girl!
Thanks guys! I know there's something wrong with his pose, but at this moment I can't tell what.
I'll let my eyes rest for the night and have a fresh look tomorrow.
Two more steps. I removed the trees completely.
Is it the first compositional sketch you've come up with for it? If so, go back and do at least a dozen different takes on it, then pick the best one. Do the same with color. (No need to go into detail like plaid pattern on the shorts or the eyes; focus on blocking the whole silhouette in.)
