    Badly posed 3d figures, badly painted over, no edge control and over use of photo bashing. Do you even make your models or are they generic ones downloaded?

    but did you make any of the assets or is this all pre-bought stuff placed together in poser or whatever? I think it would help critiquing if we knew what you actually did.

    The art is in the vision and the execution, not in the method or the means. Sorry you don't know that.

    Nonsense.

    Disagree. Well posed and none of your business where the "models" came from.

    As you don't respect other people's opinions on your work, I suggest you get your critiques elsewhere.

    There is absolutely no photo bashing in this image. None. Is this an example of your "artist eye?"

    I have detected a trend on this website in which some of the "critics" are using "critique" to enforce a hierarchy with them on top. This is classic bullying which I chose not to ignore. Thanks for the suggestion.

    This is pretty rough, but in theory has some hope.

    Top down - the models look stiff and are badly painted over. Case in point - the right guy looks like the south park episode where cartman glued pubes to his face... and I am not certain if that is a double chin or bad beard line.

    The left guy looks Hispanic, but has black hands. Typically that skin tone should be more consistent.

    Right guy's hands don't match and are bleached white in areas.

    The background looks like they are standing in front of a painting at a mexican restaurant. If you plan on photobashing random bits with a 3d model or two then you need to bring the 'matt painting' more on point.

    Lighting ins pretty inconsistent between the 3d model shadows, the background, hats, heck even the copy/pasted 'ranch sign post'.

    Man on the left has no thumb on his (facing us) left hand.

    Those bullets are way too big for that hand gun and the right hip (facing us) has no depth to them.

    The guy on the left's black portion of the clothes are made of what? Vantablack material? There should be texture visible in the near-noon day sun and not just black holes.

    On the plus side the face on the left looks well done in terms of texture, freckle marks, coloring, etc.

    The right guy's gun looks way too glossy and the barrel seems to do a 90 degree turn post the hand.

    The left guy's pistol is missing a trigger guard AND the handle is way too flat out.


    There's promise, but many issues.


    Side note - cut the 'tude, Gary. It seems you were used to folks showering you with useless praise and stroking you off over here. If you want to meander around and continue doing pud work then by all means. Continue on the false platitudes. If you ask folks for an honest critique and people are coming to the same conclusion then you should be looking to update what you are doing.

    The choice is yours on how you want to approach things.

    Classic bully response but I will answer. (1) Models are well posed and you're wrong about that. (2) Humans don't have uniform skin tones all over their body. (3) You're right, the white guy's hands could be better. (4) There is no photobashing at all in this pic. You're wrong about that. (5) The ranch sign is not copy/pasted. It's UV mapped and rendered. (6) man's thumb is not missing, it's there. (7) size of the "bullets" depends on the caliber. (8) You're right the shot gun is too glossy. (9) the trigger guard is simply hidden by the holster. Appreciate the constructive, valid criticisms vis a vis the hands and the gun. Don't appreciate the bullying bs.

    First of all critique is not personal attack but you could figure out what is most important thing in your piece as you have tendency to put details where its not needed, take a look these

    You need simplicity in order to have details and clarity so you get things to show up what is important for story of piece, usually there you see contrasts (value, edge shape etc.)
