Hey guys. Did this one tonight. 2 hrs in photoshop. Heres the pic I was looking at. Rip it a new one.
Everything looks very accurately drawn, proportions and details all look right. It could be a lot warmer. Notice how the photo has much warmer grays. Lots of yellow, and orange in the browns. All the bright lights reflecting on the chair arm etc. have a warm yellow quality that makes the whole scene more friendly and inviting.
Nice work though.

Yeah, I loved the idea and the composition, but the pic was a little lacking. A bit too many greys and not enough colors. Thanks for the comments guys.

I show you an example here, I shrinked the image and did contrasts more higher to illustrate for more clarity to find few areas, I found them 3 here, the window being lightest, the background and then the bunch of objects in the foreground, so I painted these 3 areas first not worrieng about the details for now
Then I added the colour values, I didnt start to work on it so much because its not my image but I just wanted to point out the approach to speedpainting that I have, I might be wrong too but this were my thoughts if you like

look I dont know why I love you I just do
Yeah, I see what your saying. I'll see if I can work more like this on my next project. I was planning on doing a bunch of these, so maybe I'll get better as I go. Each time I do one, I'll post the picture I use. I purpose changed the contrast because I wanted to see the chair better, but maybe in doing so I weaked the effect.
