    Hello dear,

    Have you made a water animal flying over the Earth?

    Best regards

    I like this a lot. It has a very dreamlike quality to it. If that is what you are going for I don't see any problems with it. Get stuck into colours and have fun

    Good!

    I think you could make the animal appear completely to the observer, thus, this concept could be more clear.

    Best regards

    hey pauloricardo, thanks for your feedback! i appreciate it. and I kind of agree with you. I was trying to hide some of the creature to make it seem a little more mysterious, But i think it might come off as laziness in creature design lol. thanks for your input!

    Yes it does have a very dreamlike felling to it. One of my favourite feeling of all time. : D. Whimsical with a hint of melancholy. Anyway, aside from the technical aspects such as rendering, composition of values, etc, I must come out and say that the piece is very creative. It seem too perfect for the cover of a children's book. in my opinion you nailed the mood with a creative design. And I actually like the simplicity of the dragons design, which seems appropriate within the context, although it definitely needs detail. With fundamentals applied, this would be an amazing piece. I would suggest you devout some time to learning more fundamentals so that you can capture the audience, both, with concept/design and beautiful technical rendering.

    Hey NesanJanan Thanks for your feedback I really appreciate it. And I agree, I tend to ignore the rendering aspect and get impatient with detail. I need to work on that.

    So this is quite a bit different than the last one. It's an oil painting I just finished. I would love any and all feedback any of you may have.
    This one drove me crazy. It's my first full color painting, usually I just stick to one or two colors, so this kind of gave me a headache.

    I was commissioned to paint that first digital painting as an oil painting, so this is that. This version only took me about 50 hours longer lol. I think it turned out better than the digital one did though. This is about 16 x 20 inches.

    I was commissioned by a NASA employee to paint two cornhole boards (for anyone who doesn't know what cornhole is, its a really popular game in the states with two big boards that have a hole in them that you throw stuff into. so yeah) and this is the first one. I painted it in oil paints. It's 2 by 4 ft. So its really big... Sorry the pictures are such bad quality, I need to get a real camera and varnish the painting so it doesn't look so weird.

    that cornhole board looks nice. you captured the bloom effect well...like it's radiating heat. The horizon line (at least that what I think it is) is the only thing that semi bothers me, but that's being picky. Good job

    Thanks for the compliment and feedback kraemology I think the horizon line your talking about is supposed to be where the end of the smoke meets the ground, there was a little glowing line in some of my reference pictures. I don't think I pulled it off though. It looks a little weird now that you mentioned it. Thanks!
