To peace and harmony,from a Indian youth.
Yet seldom do we find them in the big bad earth.
This picture was inspired by a unknown verse by another unknown young girl from India.Her name is Barkha Sharda, she was untill recently a student of Ashoka Hall,Kolkata and writes in The Telegraph(India). Hail the relentless creationist, without you I may not have found myself.
(I'll post the poem as soon as I can.)
See the bloodveins? Ever dreamt them suffocating your senses down the grim alley of life? I did.
Whatever the price, dreams still thrive in my soul. And I live for that.
can't see it
I can see it, but it would have indeed been better if you posted them all in one thread.
I don't know how to give C&C on works like these, cause it is kinda abstract. I am not too fond of it, but I am never too fond of works that are 'abstract'.
Maybe you have made something less abstract?
The one critique i would have is that the face looks really terrible. I get that you are trying to use as few lines as possible to convey an image but it just looks amateur and dumb frankly. I would also work to make the background and the face more related, right now it looks like you just threw the face onto whatever background you could find.
But i dont know much about abstract art! vv
I've merged these for teh time being, but unless you can post them so that he images show up for everyone I'm going to delete it.

"Work is more fun than fun."
"Art is supposed to punch you in the brain, and it's supposed to stay punched."
okay. I followed your links and the only conclusion I can honestly come to at this point is that photoshop (or Painter), right now is something more of a gimmick to you. These pieces show that you're having fun but don't understand what makes a piece coherrent or worthwhile to the viewer. I'll come at this from a fine arts aspect, instead of that of an illustrator, as I think we have two different definitions of "concept art" in mind here. In general, these lack focus and the simplistic drawing is too busy in terms of your strokes and yet lack the appropriate variety to effectively say what your subject is. Secondly, the gradients, textures and fuzzy airbrush work absolutely scream "I'M DIGITAL!!!!" which isn't always a bad thing but here it just shows that you went for a short cut. Again, we have different backgrounds here so I don't know how much help my advice will be but all I can say is that you need to draw. Development of life-drawing as a frequently practiced discipline lends itself to all genres and is a much neglected foundation that benefits any artist greatly. If you don't care about realism, fine. However it's more about medium control and training your eye to rocognise the difference between what you see and what you think you see. And All artists should care about that. Ultimately what it all boilds down to is bridging the gap between what you want an audience to see and what they actually see.
