    Something is wrong here - merged threads

    I am learning how to subordinate details and just indicate them rather than copy them exactly as i used too. Something is wrong with the Henry's Deli Buliding. I think i did well with simplifying the windows but i failed with making the building look like brick. Whats going on here? I cant find the right balance between to much detail and too out of focus.

    you can add some brick here and there and that might help...the viewer's eye will fill in the rest. I would also sharpen some of your edges of the top of the building so it feels more solid, its getting soft in some places.
    Also, the perspective of the sign is kind of off..should be tilted more to the right...(notice the space between the sign and the first window)

    The electric line is almost tangent with the tops of the windows. Either overlap or move it further away, and the bottom one needs to better separated from the building in the Background. You can probably do this by lightening the top of it just like you have with the top line. And overall the lines are too thick.

    The SUV there on the front is the most distracting thing ...you need to finish that (the top/back) cause its the first thing you see.

    It has a nice feel overall though

    Kid portrait

    A drawing of a kid. See it sucks to only be very good in prescision because when i have to loosen up and do something very realistic in a short amount of time, I freak out and not know which detail to eliminate. I gotta get better at doing things very realisitc but more looser. It an art form in itself; to know what to include and what not to include.

    Very clean, no criticism. Although, I have to agree with Adam, his robe could use some work, but if it'll take away from the face then maybe it's fine.

    I'd homogenise the shading as it approaches the corners of walls and window frames. Homogeneity of the shading will imply small scale structure, whereas lightening the shading as you approach corners and frames will suggest a slightly bowed, smooth surface as if plastered.

    I actually think the robes give a glowy feeling. They pull the eye a lot, but working them over would remove some of that.
