    Death at the Chapel

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/images/attach/jpg.gif

    Hello Conceptart. Im an art student attending Massey University in New Zealand. Please comment upon
    my sketch's, be as critical as you want, talk about anything that has anything to do with my art or art in general. Since im in the Southern Hemisphere we have just started our summer break which last for four months and i want to improve dramtically in that space and any comment or critique is gonna help loads and loads and loads.

    I'm diggin' the poem illustration, but the nun is also very good. I would say something more constructive at this point; however, from what it seems, you're ahead of me

    Interesting style of artwork, I like it reminds me of the "scary stories" series of books from when I was a kid. Pretty neat.

    um these sketch's are concepts for a vodoo doll, as is the next.

    Death at the Chapel

    I sketched these for a uni assignment. Whats do you think of the aesthetic? to proportions, what does it remind you of, how could i improve them?

    Hey there fellow Kiwi.

    I don't know which direction you're going with the aesthetics, I can tell you though that I personally find the overall shape and shading in these two visually appealing.

    Proportions in the first one looks fine. With the second one I think his (her?) eyes are a bit too far apart.

    I don't think they remind me of Voodoo dolls very well. I don't know the exact criteria you have for your assignment but you might wanna exaggerate and draw attention to the stuffs associated with voodoo dolls. Maybe have him/her holding a giant spike (instead of tiny needles). You might wanna make your character look less human and resembling a doll more (textile skin, button eyes, vacant eyes, etc) - just to make sure people can easily tell what it is.

    Just my two cents - hope that's relevant.

    thanks jeri. sorry i didnt go into detail about those last two. We had to illustrate a short lymric which had this vooodo girl charactor as the central protagonist. However the story was a metaphorical one and its underlying story was about how this girl could not love anyone because as soon as she held them close voodoo needles in her heart would be plunged into her deeper.. well its a bit long winded to explain but basicaly we were meant to make our charactors implicit and not to be overt about the metaphorical appropriation of the voodo girl charactor to represent the lovestruck girl. in other words our charactors were meant to be inbetween'ers

    sorry if this is a bit repeatitive but i thought i should post my poem illustrations with out any digital reworking on them just because the detailing of my drawings are easier to see and my drawing style can be seen more clearly, hopefully for more crits

    Lymric as in limerick or a typo of lyric?

    Inbetween huh? Guess I can't be of much help because my knowledge of symbolism is very limited. If the assignment demands a degree of implicitness then I suppose you will be graded on how well you can convey the background of this character subtly right? You probably have to look up on some example of symbolism in romance/voodoo.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.
