    I'm halfway through this painting and would like to ask for some constructive feedback before continuing. I'm kinda stuck with the lighting and just not sure if I'm getting things right in general. If there is anything that can help to improve on this, please let me know. Thank you!

    I don't get the perspective of the fish meat slices. They don't seem consistent with the central vanishing point you seem to be using. For example, we should be able to see the left side of all the slices on the right side of the pic.

    Lighting should follow the same principle. If you have a hard light on top of the baby, it should lit everything around it accordingly. It helps to actually draw the light source placeholder and some lines simulating the light rays.

    Also, hard lights usually make hard shadows, so you might wanna push those dark values a little more.

    Hi there. Eek! Disturbing piece. Is this for a creepy MerMay prompt?

    The temperature of the lighting feels clinical. If you're going for creepy hospital or slaughterhouse it's working well. The lighting seems to be coming from a slight angle, but the ellipse of the light is almost perfectly circular, which implies it's a direct light from above.

Size:  226.2 KB Hey there, I really like the Idea of the picture, good job. In terms of lightning i think pushing ambient occlusion would really help to discribe the forms. My paintover is really gentle but i hope you get what i mean . One very good tutorial for ambient occlusion is from the one and only Marco Bucci ( who is a god for fast on point tutorials btw)

    Hi there! I'm a big fan of Piotr Jabłoński's work and wanted to attempt a similar theme/style and lighting technique. Of course, this is way, wayyyy lamer in terms of subject matter and execution. Thank you for your help! I relighted the scene so that the light is coming from the side now, but because I'm pretty bad at lighting, in my attempt to correct the fundamentals, I lost the mood of the creepy hospital/slaughterhouse entirely. Guess I'll try it again next time.

    Thank you!! I really do appreciate you doing a paint-over on this. It's been really helpful too. I have proceeded to add AO to most part of this WIP, even though I haven't blended it in, it helped to define the forms a lot more. And thank you so much for the link as well. Name:  Relighted.jpg
