hey edite warming up for the grand international self portrait day tomorrow?
Unlike tom, who is totally stupid, not worth talking to or listening to because he are so noob... i would actually bring your upper value range back into the midtones and THEN pop highlights. As it stands the image has a slightly clipped effect. I would also warm up the shadows considerably (because your background is such a strong orange). The yellow you have used in the mids is a bit cool which gives her a slightly ghoulish look... she is missing the soft purples and reds of warm flesshhhhh
Bring warmer tones back into the darks (like you have moreso on the neck - see how the face looks 'painted' in comparison?) Once your values are back in the mid range, you can choose where best to use those highlights.
Also, watch your edges - there is a lot happening in the lips thats drawing the eye unnecessarily and you could possibly use some softer edges there, and in the eyes. Really nice form on the eyes incidentally - you can see you have been studying them!
Final note, dont ever let me catch you copying and flipping half the face again!!! The symmetry stood out straight away You lazy cretin!!!
Very nice steps forward though, and a nice new depth/clarity/cohesion in your painted stuff.
Cheers big ears
FOOOOOOORM - she s got green blood deliberately cold face! no warm reds in there!!!!!!!! and i didnt flip ittttttt! I just flipped the eyes not the whole faace!
But I agree about the midtones
thanks for the crits!!!
hey there! Nice portrait, plenty pretty and plenty creepy! The hair could probably do with a little more work, like her bangs being a little bit more defined.
Your work has a real energy to it that speaks for itself and makes the paintings look interesting especially! Good stuff!
nice job on the last one, love the eyes!

I'm gonna join the chorus and giva ya props on the latest portrait! Good use of the texturebrush you've used for the freckles Just an asspat in other words... hehe...
Always great stuff going on here.
Especially like the last face.
Your works have a lot of personality
that can not be taught and it is
really a pleasure to see it when it happens.
Thanks for dropping by and feeding the fat bear,
he really misses the circus.
hey there Fooxoo, great fun to browse through your SB. I think that you have some great design ideas. Some of your stuff really stands out and feels effortless. Other times it feels like you are struggling with your lines and colours. All you need is stability and a style that flows for you. I expect to see some great art from you in the future.
You need to update, Edite! Hehe
Thank you all for kind kind replies, comments and crits ... all appreciated and taken into consideration SHall not reply to all individually this time ... because it has been soooo long since I last posted anything hahaha
OOOOOOOK.... have not posted anything since long time ago .. lazy ass, baby in belly, lazy ass etc ... and been working on freelance for Ncsoft ... though those are no excuses for drawing as little as I have for the past months .... so here is a little dump of stuff that I have managed to do .... I ll post some more (mostly digis a bit later) ...
Ok all kinds of bullshit, some quite a bit old, some quite recent .. some I like, some I absolutely hate, but oh whatever, I just thought I d dump it all in here ...
Crits and comments always welcome, cheerio!
sweet one !
This one looks very promising too, great line work!
The expression on the tree is priceless!
Pencil rendering still feels a bit rushed,
The planes could be more defined on this
one, I really like it, but it could pop a lot more.
Keep the updates coming,
Really like the design of this one! Cool update, your pencils are getting cleaner every time!
Oh, and thanks for the good times in norway! I'll pop by brighton as soon as i find the chance!
Yay Edite! I'm glad you've finally posted your artz!

And this guy is super cute: http://conceptart.org/forums/attachm...1&d=1212154549
Anyway I'm seeing lots of improvement! Keep it up!!
I hope you and Hurri and little Hugo are well, talk to you soon!
Definitely a lot of improvement here. Can't really say anything other than to keep it up.

Yay update Like the sketches you've got going here. Some have some proportion/anatomy problems but nothing more practice wouldn't solve I think. Watch out a bit with the shading, I think if you paid a little more attention in some of those sketches they'd look stronger. Hurri is recognisable even to me (I've only seen him in a short interview vid a while ago) so good job there
Updatey goodness! Lotsa good stuff in here! Cool to see all the DEEP stuff Maybe there's more of that in digital form?
Thank you guys for coming over! I had a blast, even though I couldn't spend as much time with you guys as I had hoped... Next time I see you, I'm gonna have more time off, just to chill and sketch
nice drawings ya got. I can see quite a big improvement from your first posts to your last ones.
My observational skills may be great but i said nothing about my drawing skills

God they have such nice design
And the amount of improvment you made is jaaaaww dropping
God just keep rocking girlie!
And your avatar really confuses me, because it looks like its underwater and how the hell did you take the picture lol
Well anywayz keep it up
I can't even say how much you've improved since I first met you (obviously the close encounters with Hurri has made a world of difference). I wish I had creative person I could sponge off of everyday. You've really made massive improvements in your skill and execution in drawing.
Good luck with the family making, I hope all goes well.
Less than three!
That cardivagio study from last october is really nice, I suspect you have other things on your mind than posting on concept art ;p. My baby is passed out next to me, love it. hope all is well.
