    Blue Umbrella and Black Shoes**nudity**

    What's wrong or what would improve it? I'm a pencil and ink guy learning to paint (digital first). I'm still working on various techniques.

    Kind of looked at Vettriano for inspiration here.

    I know there's a disconnect with the woman and the background.

    Don't be nice....tear it apart....I need to hear it! Thanks.

    First of all paint your background instead of using a Photoshop filter of a photo... More qualified artists here will be able to help you with the technical issues (values, shapes, contrast, etc...)

    I like this cept for the background. The woman's thigh is too sharp. The muscle def. that you wanted to show makes her bones look very sharp. Try to smooth that out more and the volume of the leg will be more evident. Also, the outlining of the woman is really not needed, as the colors and brush strokes you have make her defined enough.

    Work on the background and KUDOS

    Digital painting is not so much my forte, but I am a pencil and ink sort of guy like you.

    There seems to be a disconnect between the woman, and the corner of the building that she is standing on. Also, I was wondering if you intentionally depicted the rain and the umbrella in such a way that the umbrella is pretty useless the way that the woman is holding it.

    The woman and the BG are from two different photo ref.s so thats the start of the disconnect...I guess I failed at merging them. The BG is intentionally faded washed out for depth. The outline definitely hurts it. On the BG I blocked in the values and then dropped the photo as a color layer...so I definitely cut corners on it...another mistake.
