    If you were the best, then I wouldn't ask you to move your sketches to your sketchbook.

    There is a lack of any defined shapes. The colors are muddied, the snakes are little more than poorly drawn cartoon symbols. The clouds look like they have been applied with white-out. Placing the sun within touching range of the upper corner edge of the image is going to direct the eye right out instead of leading it to a focus point.

    Besides the fact that the sun has no bearing or relevance to the rest of the image. As I mentioned I am getting really tired of this game. I agree with Eezacque, keep these images to your sketchbook. This is a section for learning and critique, not the validation of your ego.

    You sound mad.

    The sun has been cropped by my phone.

    Validation? I need no validation. I know I am one of the best traditional artists on the forums.

    I know its hard to critique the best traditional artist on the forum, but I did a bit of a paint over as I felt there were some elements missing.

    Why is that snake’s face on the side of its head?

    This is not the painting to ask that question. The underlying structure is poor as well as the lighting. Yes, you're big, bold and brass, but you're 50/50 in hitting the mark. To be the best, you need to hit it more consistently. Put the energy from bragging to better use in actually listening to the critiques.

    Black, even Picasso (color) and Van Gogh (technicality) had flaws. I am going to be the greatest painter to ever live. My output is rediculous, my style is nuts and I am improving. Nothing is perfect. I listen to critiques but y’all are flat out wrong. If I am banned for being principled so be it. I am the black Van Gogh. You will see.

    That's not why you are being banned at all. Take some time to think about it.

    Dotcov has gone on a mystical journey of enlightenment for a while. We might see him again at Christmas. Like Santa.
