    Raise yor standards please

    I thought it was about time I posted. Sort of money where your mouth is as I've been critisising so much recently.
    There is a great deal of very poor work out there.

    Here's something I'm working on.

    looks very nice and prommising.. maybe some darker shades in it.. and try to make the colors match each other.. the red doesnt really fit the green so either lose the green or the red.. imo that is

    Red does fit green. They're complementary colors.

    I just noticed the green glow behind her/his feet. Where's that coming from? As far as the color scheme goes, all he has to do is add a little green to the blue and he'll have a nice split complementary color scheme. Or he could go for a tetrad - red, green, yellow-orange, and blue-violet

    While I like most of what's going on here, the incredibly small head and neck actually detract from it (vice making the figure look mor imposing) and I love the soft definition in the torso, but the hard, dark lines in the legs are killing me (doh!, you're probably not there, yet). I'm also not too sure about the placement of her left foot; it seems a bit wonky.

    Cool, though.

    Same view as dogfood and Joey-b. Either some darker shade, or toning down of the hard dark lines in the legs and around the face, especially the left side.

    I like the blue but it just dosent go well with the red hair and it looks so much more dramatic red.

    Thanks for the comments BTW. What is the difference between complimentary and contrasting?

    In responce to your title, 'gotta start somewhere'.

    Biggest gripe, the dark lines in the legs aare very stark compared to the rest of the more blended colors. That and I'll agree with the handful that said, no enough range of value.

    The blue and red doesn't work too well for me. I'd like to see this with a more neutral base and only smaller areas of such a bright staturated color. Say, tan with bright blue markings like the re-color.

    Follow this link to see a nice simple website with info about the color wheel and some basic color theory:

    I'm not sure what you mean by "contrasting" exactly, but you might be thinking the same thing I was talking about. The whole thing with complimentary colors is that if you mix, say, equal amounts of green and red (which are complimentary colors) you get gray. Add more green it gets a little cooler, add more red it gets a little warmer.

    GOOD QUESTION!!!!


    Dude, the 2nd piece looks much better, prolly due to the colors used.


    I just have a problem with his pecs they're kinda....huge....well, I guess it goes with the bulging arms. The fella does look a little androgynus at the moment
