I like to paint Asian woman.
She passes by a tile-roofed house and She will go out.
wow.. what's the size of the first picture?
very nice, I liked to last asian woman you drew and this one is awesome aswell. (maybe it's cuz I got an asian fetish)
nice piece, great colors.
Man thats great! I love the colors. Not sure if you stuck to your lightsource 100%, but it may just appear that way because your darks aren't all that dark. Simpley lovely artwork!
I don't spellcheck...
can you post a tutorial on how to paint like this???
I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.
This is great. The colors are pure and vibrant, and the style reminds me of old pin-up posters. Loose, yet confident strokes.
Good job. Keep em coming.
Oh man...this is just lovely! The composition seems a bit strange (could just be me), but the girl is perfect from design to drawing to colors.
This is a great painting and I love the asian girl.
-but I have to agree with Aerythes about the comp. The problem I think is the pole/pillar on the mid right. It splits the pic in two especially since the wall in the bg is so close and perfectly parallel with it that if u focus on that area alone it grabs our attention. There's no breathing room so it seems closed off and therefore splits the pic in two.
-A few things could be a bit more polished imo. The old ladies hands, the two ladies in the bg, the poles(especially the elipses at the top)
-Id try making the darks in the bg a little less dark, cuz they're almost as dark as your darks in the foreground. If you make them lighter I think it will add to the depth of the piece.
-Also, your colors in the bg could be a little more saturated, giving it a better sense of the glow of the sun. At the same time, im not sure if it will conficlt w/ the girl.
-I'd try sprucing up the contrast of the girl and a few things in the foreground as well to make things *pop*!
-I think the railing/fence thing behind the lady might be off in perspective, but it could be that we dont know how or where it ends cuz of that pole. So it could be correct, its just that I dont know it is or not.
-Id say the floor plane that the ladies are walking on is too loose and undecisive. If you were to clean it up some and give us a hint of pattern or something that would help push the perspective, it'd feel more real.
Thats it for now...I think. I hope you dont think Im being hard on you, but I really like this piece and I think it could improve much more and become an even greater piece.
Hope I was of some help!
There is nothing wrong with using a photo to help you see things.
No one complains about life drawing,
so take a photo.
its easy, and will improve your piece greatly."
That is quite good. I like the details on the dress and face. A good job.

That's a great image to be sure. Especially the atmosphere. Some people described it as "lovely" and I couldn't agree with them more. The obligitory nit-pick in my opinion would have to be about the old ladies bug eyes. Their degree of cartoony is far greater than the rest of the image and they don't really seem to fit.
Beautiful piece. My only comment( mainly because I don't like to just say "beautiful piece) is that you could try using more colors for your shade and shadow instead of black.. Right now you have a lot of dirty greys that are keeping this piece from having a certain "glow"..
Just as well, you may have intended this effect. Great piece still.
You need to do more anatomy...and check your values....wait...did I just say that?
Very nicely done mate... love those lines, how long did this take you?
Amazing work as usual. I have to admit that I like the close up of the lead girl more than anything else in the image. I guess the old lady just wigs me out : )
