Hi thar. I'm a self-taught digital painter and texture artist, and I'd really like to get better, even though I only do it for personal enjoyment. I've been working in a vacuum for a very long time, and I've reached a point where critique is something I feel I really need in order to improve.
So, here is something I'm currently working on in Painter, using photo reference. I'd welcome any feedback, particularly with respect to color--I'm trying James Gurney's gamut mask method and I have no idea if I'm succeeding. Color is the bane of my existence.
Thanks in advance
