    The Awakening

    Hi, this is my first post on this wonderful forum

    I am very new to any type of drawing or painting. I have no traditional experience and I regret this alot, but the only thing I can do is start now, push forward and try to learn as much as possible.

    This is my 3rd painting. My main goal with it was to create a decent mood, not to make a refined detailed piece. This was all done in photoshop.

    I'm eager for any and all critique.

    Thanks for looking..

    Nice glow. The clouds need more work. Hehe, this tutorial might help you? I'm learning from this tutorial too http://web.archive.org/web/200503071.../cloudtut.html

    Welcome to CA! Keep on drawing, and sticking with it!

    Cheers!

    'Ello, another Aussie eh? Welcome to CA!

    It does create a nice interesting mood, particularly with the light streaming from her eyes. I think you could enhance it with more contrast in the figure and the background perhaps.

    I would have to disagree with the glowing eyes comment. I guess it is personal preference, but I think it takes away from the piece and makes it look a bit "cheesy".

    BLADES: Thank you, yes I need to work on my cloud skills thanks for the link.

    iolarnula: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoy the mood.

    Zeichentier: Thanks. Yeah, there is some artifacting from the resizing and jpg compression.

    Bai Fan: I can understand your preference with this. I think I could have done that portion better and made it more subtle or something. I'll be more carefull with the cheese-factor next time

    The cloth of the character is too rigid, it should have more wrinkles and folds in it...
