My first finished piece.
i declare it's finished...'cause i couldn't think of what else it needed. Maybe a christmas tree....(just kiddin).
Good work, but I'd say that he's not realy in touch with environment (different light, colours vs. greyscales and so on)
All i would say is that the anatomy is off. I looks like you have tried in places to make it accurate, and in others to be more charicature. Your colours are alright, so it would be nice to see how you improve with those! And yeh, watch those light sources, his body doesn seem to have the same as the hat (light should be hitting the hat on the right.)
hope it helps
thankyou kindly for the replies. I am trying to develop a style with out sacrificing anatomy..it will be a challenge for the next piece. This one shows the direction in which I wish to go.
Light sources have always been my bane..don't believe me? check my sketchbook This is the closest i've gotten in a long while to something decent. The last piece was a phyical piece, 'bout 5years back, if I recall correctly...
Painter is now conquered...now I got to get more pieces done
His arms are to long. Plus your work has a bit of irony to it. What I mean is I have never seen a fat dude with diesel arms. Maybe thats just me though. I like how he is admiring his hat though.
