Really nice work. I especially like the expressiveness you achieved with the dogs. I really don't see much to criticize here, but in the painting of the dogs fighting/playing, the background doesn't seem separated enough. Maybe some atmosphere might push it back a little and separate it from the dogs. Good stuff though, keep it up.
I'm new here and could always use some advice / criticism. Feel free to take a peak at my sketchbook if you have the time.
17? Geez. Fantastic work, you've got a really lovely, energetic style; I love the dogs and the flower. Try posting your images a little smaller, though, they're pretty big and in a couple of cases I can't see the whole thing without scrolling. (Maybe you're on a massive screen?)
@nick - I haven't even noticed that :v great point, I thought the background could have been done better somehow
@revidescent - oh yeah, I should scale them down more before posting. I like to post high res pics because personally I like when people do that
Maybe next time when theres a large file, I should post a small version but with a detailed zoom?
Wow, I haven't been on here for a long time. This website just refused to work on Google Chrome for some reason... (and it's still laggy)
On a side note, I've been accepted to SAIC and RISD. Does anyone have a particular opinion about those schools? Strengths in painting or concept art? Or even if it's worth paying that much money to go to a big name school, since US colleges are so expensive.
Anyways, here's a composition for a painting I'm going to do. I'm pretty happy with the colours, but the flow feels kinda off and I can't figure out whats wrong.
