This image was a struggle.. any criticism/feed back is very much welcomed and appreciated.
Not a bad pic at all. You need to define a light source, though, and coordinate every piece of the picture. The characters are composed like they have little relation to each other, which you could improve on. I think you could also make your edges cleaner, and control your colors a bit more (Colors do indeed reflect onto other colors, but there are some hues in here that don't make sense in their context). Besides that, just keep working on anatomy and forms.
My only thought is that all four of the humans have "mug shot" faces--looking straight ahead, completely expressionless. If it were me, I'd have them looking in different directions and expressing some emotion or action.
[Last crit for the night/well morning actually, I can't sleep.]
I'd just like to add that I love almost all your illustrations. Website included.
I love the animals you manage to sneak in your pieces. Bahaha. Good stuff.
-ummm, the one thing that's bothering me is the space between her thighs.
It feels flat. No space. ??? It's either her left thigh looking like it's spread but it's not.
Something about her hip arc, the left thigh and the back contour of thigh-to-butt.
-The top 3 facial expression being similar. Are they on purpose?
Girl and top left man facing dead straight to cam.
[It might be my weirded eyes. Half past 4 am. Loggin off.]
Hey, Kenny... long time no see
I have to say, I am impressed with the work on your site. And looking over those pieces in comparison to this one, two things stand out... most of your pieces have great flow and composition, where as this one feels like a collage where you crammed in as many related pieces as you can, but they don't flow together - this could be largely compositional, perhaps the lack of a narrative and how you felt about the piece coming through, too. There is also a lack of cohesive light through the piece and many elements seem very flat while with others, you've begun to render and show depth - it needs to be more one or the other, having the piece halfway between the two is confusing. The half-flat rendering is also what may be making the shape of her hips against the one guy's jacket look odd as well as her thigh in the back, where her elbow makes a tangent with the one guy's wrist, etc. Picking a light source can also give a better center of focus...
Keep up the sweet work, Kenny
There seem to be random blues, reds, and greens in a variety of places. There's a bit of purple around the edges of Will.i.am's shirt, random orange bits on the elephant, and so on. This could be the style (I think it would look pretty cool), but when combined with the hazy edges, it comes off as unintentional.
