My latest practice piece here
I do have my own comments on it already but I realy wanted to hear some other opinions too! So thanks in advance.
Anyone with some comments?
The flower itself and the background are nice and vibrand and well done, but the guy is a bit lacking.
The flower's turn shading looks smooth, whereas the guy I can clearly see scraggly scribbly brush strokes. Also, given the lighting scheme I'd expect to see some red bounce on the top of his forms, but instead, all I get is pale pale and more pale.
right now they feel like you did them separately and cut/paste them together. You'll need to work more to make it a unified piece IMO.
Nice work on the rose. The details on the petals, their folds, shading and colours chosen look good & vibrant.
The background is also nice & complimentary.
I know this is a WIP, but one thing that stands out to me are the size of his hands. They seem a bit large or out of proportion anatomy wise.
Would like to see him rendered more - like the flower.
Truepinkas' suggestions/advice all seem spot on to me.
The rose is beautiful, its shaded very well and I like the stylized swirl it makes on the top.
The man's upper body could use work on the shading and anatomy definition. His arm sticks out to me and it looks rubbery and the hand/fingers don't look natural.
As a design suggestion, I'd make the man's pants a brown hue, same with the boots to match the warm colors in the picture.
Just my advice, I do agree with putting more effort into the shading on the man over all and reflective highlights from the background colors to fit the image. (So it looks like he's part of the picture more so.)
His hands are huge. Make those smaller. As far as composition, its very odd. There is hardly anything that the guy is standing on. I can't tell where the ground is compared to the background. The colors on the guy seem muddy and too much of the same color. Keep working on it. His left arm where it is really dark is also really odd. It is the darkest part of the whole picture and it is right in the middle.
Wow thanks guys, some great pointers to think about..
