    alone in the wild

    Hiya,

    I have completed the following piece and thought I would share it with you. And maybe, just maybe I can get some useful crits as well...

    I have used photoshop and a few reallife photos for pose and lighting reference on her face. Everything is heavily modified, though...

    Here it goes...

    Thanks for looking

    Hey Beli,

    This is beautiful, I really like the pale tones on her face - kinda reminds me of the characters from Silent Hill for some reason.
    The shading on the hair is exquisite, my only sliiiight crit, and trust me, it is very slight, is the angle of the face in comparison with the hair, almost kinda looks like she is wearing a wig and it is slipping off down her face a little... I think its the hairline shape on the left hand side that bugs me.

    But, this is a truly stunning piece, almost hypnotic to look at..
    Keep it up!

    - Eri

    hehe ok, I'm not the only one who noticed the hair. other than the hair my only crit is the shape of the moon a little egg shaped but I didnt even notice that till I started admiring the stuff you have in the foreground... and if it is egg shaped like that because its part of the cycle you might want to darken the right a bit, maybe, infact I dunno... play with that thought a bit in your mind and see what comes of it

    awsome pic, love the lighting and use of foreground environment

    The face and skintones, and the color in general, are very nicely handled.
    As has been mentioned, though, the hair is coming dangerously close to ruining it.

    yeah, the hair doesn't do it for me. it looks as light is hitting it from all over, when there is only one apparent light source on the face.
    nice colors on the face. good mix of cools n warms.

    The hair is oversized i just covered some of it and it feels already more natural but it will need also some other adjustments. It's a great drawing and the egg - moon reply was very amusing...

    overall great job. using ref is always a good idea. of course there are issues as previously stated, but i congratulate you on your depth of field. soft vs hard really worked well in this one to focus the eye on the girl.

    good job, can't wait to see the fix

    Hi all,

    thanks a lot for the great feedback. I think after working on a piece for some time I get too deep into it and don't recognize some things. Like, for example, that the hair really looks too big. I'm not sure yet, if I want to change that but I will definitely change the moon in the background.

    Thanks again for the feedback and Ill be posting an update on this one later on.
