Thought it would be more helpful to show, rather then just tell my thoughts. :) I'm going to focus on the background, and bringing the piece into a more coherent image.

1) First, the horizon line. This is important to distinguish. It helps figure out the perspective of the whole piece. When first looking at your piece, I had the sense it was a diangle line. Which didn't follow the rest of the piece at all. By figuring where this line is, make sure not to put sky on the bottom, and land in the top!

2) Your trees were quite pillow shaded, and had that broccoli effect. I thought it might look nice to just use silhouettes, as the trees are so far back and not the main focus. Look at real trees to see how their branches are shaped. Also, that trees might not grow right in a row, and there might be more in the front and back, fading away. You can also add lower foliage to add interest to the background.

3) I know textures are fun, but they are also very flat. I'd go back and add some details to it. Stones, brick, rock. Just remember perspective will change as they move back, this will help add depth. :)

4) Same for grass! Grass dose not grow in triangles, and is quite fine and likes to grow everywhere. If something is on the grass, it will overlap and cover it from the viewer. This is shown with the park bench, the shoe, and even the line where the pavement and grass meet.

5) Finally, make sure to draw your geometric shapes to the horizon line. I had issues with putting the right shape in, but I'd look into a guide how to do this correctly. If you start out with a strong sketch with your shapes, then you can only build from it. :)

Overall, I see lots of potential, just need to up your backgrounds to the next level! I hope this helps you with that! Can't wait to see how your next tryout comes out!

Ooo, how lovely. I love the shading on the skin here, dear. I would love to offer some advice, but, I haven't tried out yet myself, so I'm afraid I can't.

I wish you the best of luck. :)

RetroWhale Monday, February 7th 2011, 11:03 AM

Advice is fine if you havn't tried out... you just cant say YES or NO. I would love to hear on how I can improve! But thank you C:

Ailaik Monday, February 7th 2011, 11:42 AM

some crits:
the perspective here is really distorted, the shading is pillowy, and the background looks really rushed compared to the 2 figures
for your next tryout, I should suggest that you don't hide the hands to obviously, and don't rely on patterns/textures too much
your anatomy seems to be fine, it's just that the perspective and style make it seem a little odd
and I'd like to give you a compliment for following the rules so strictly, it's got everything a tryout needs
sorry for sounding a little strict, but I wish you luck on your next tryout

I like that you put multiple subjects in your picture, and the bench angle makes me feel tall (I like feeling tall because I'm not really ;D). But I feel like there's some shadow missing. Like there's really dark shading under the trees, and then none under the bench.

Edit: Even though I know that this picture is stylized and not meant to be realism, I'd just like to add in a few more things. The guy's forehead is really small, and their ears should be larger. Ears should go from between the top eyelid and the eyebrows to where you marked in the tips of their noses. The guy's mouth also seems like it should be a bit lower on his face, and the girl's shoulders are too pointy. The line where the guy's arm bends should be pointed more towards where his elbow is rather than down the lower part of his arm. I'm just being nit-picky though.

Ailaik Monday, February 7th 2011, 1:57 PM

^good point about the shadow, also, try not to use dodge/burn, pick your shading colors yourself, but there are loads of tutorials online on that subject

RetroWhale Monday, February 7th 2011, 7:42 PM

I didn't use dodge or burn C: Different colors plus the airbush tool on a low opacity.

RetroWhale Monday, February 7th 2011, 7:43 PM

Aha and I had thought about the hands - I don't actually have an issue with them. xD The guy and the arm/bench is just how I see some people chillin' on benches, and then she's just holding her arm. But aha thanks, and next time I'll be sure to have them out in the open C:

i also like that you put multiple subjects in the picture, but they don't really look like they relate to each other. is he like...checking her out as she walks by? it's not clear because they don't really seem to be making a connection of any sort.

RetroWhale Monday, February 7th 2011, 9:59 PM
avatar
Not sure why I bother replying, I dont know if you'll even get the message ahaha. But they're connect eye-to-eye, because she is walking past and he notices her, and they look. C:

no i get that they are supposed to. i'm just saying that they don't really seem to be making the intended connection

My life exactly. If I hear a noise outside, I am convinced there is someone plotting to come inside and kill me, so I am inclined to grab an object I could cause injury with if that were to happen. I even freak myself out if I know I'm going to be alone DAYS LATER thinking about what could happen; when the time comes, I am the epitome of paranoid.
