So, I've been a long time lurker: not good enough to critique, but an admirer of this community's work. I think I'm ready for alittle critique myself.
So, these are two antagonists in a story I'm toying with. When I described one of them to my friend as someone w/ a water whip, I thought it sounded dumb. So, I decided a picture would work better than my words.
I originally intended to do this with my usual B&W line art, but decided to expand my horizons alittle and give the finished product a more painted look. There are some things I obviously need practice on.. like hands, shoes, clouds, and cityscape. But there are other things that I know are off, but can't put a finger on how to improve:
Shading: as bad as the girl's face looks, it was worse
Line weight: Some parts of the elements blend into other parts, but if I was to increase the line weight on say the scaffolding, would I have to make the line weight on the characters super thick?
Water whip: Sometimes I look at it, and it doesn't even look like water to me.. but not sure what's missing.
I'm sure there are other things to add to the list. Would love to hear you guys' suggestions.
Each piece was done separately on a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, then later combined and touched up in Photoshop on my laptop.
