    Take a Bite.

    Hey everyone.

    Hoping to get some critique on my latest. For the most part, I like the piece, but I think something's off about the little trickle of drool on the edge of his mouth. Opinions?

    Oh, by the way, this is a larger version of the original .psd file, so it's a little bit blurry.

    Have the drool follow the contour of the uhh 'lip' and make it less dense.

    Absolutely wicked, I like it a lot!

    also, with the shadow..you would have a reflected light on the bottom....probably close to the color of the background.....take an orange and set it up and light it....you'll see wheat i mean.

    reflected light give paintings a much greater sense of depth.


    ....and i think i might get scurvey because im now scared to eat an orange....thanks :-P


    slainte!

    The shadows on the teeth are pale and washed out compared to the shadow on the orange. They're also done in plain black and white, which makes them a little boring compared to the wild purple shadowing you have going on. If you make the shadows on the teeth a little stronger (especially in the corner of the mouth, which shouldn't get much light) then they might look a little more integrated with the orange.

    The shadow indicates a light source coming from behind right side. While the highlight suggest a light source from the front right side. So a second shadow would be in place.

    The teeth do need some more defining Ithink that would give it more depth, and then maybe more shading in the darker areas and more highlight in the light areas, but not too much!

    This reminds me of ursulav's work. I love it. Maybe add some shadow for the drool, but it looks very nice, feels very round, nice texture. Good job.

    Sharpen the imagem it just seems overall blurred. Use the method of soft and hard edges for shadows.

    As for composing the image, drag it a notch bottom left a little, the bottom left at the moment seems a little overpowering, so doing this will just make it look overall more comfortable.

    The drool should be more glassy, if you want it to look like drool. Less colour and make it smoother. I mean that stuff really looks nasty, like chunky vomit or something. I'd normally be the last person to advocate anime as a source, but the teardrops in anime girls' eyes (and you should have no trouble finding pictures there) is sorta what I'm talking about.
