Looking for brutal feed back only, no compliments. Please keep in mind while this may only be an attempt at copying from a stock photo, I'm trying to produce commercial quality work here.

Ok if you're looking for brutal, I'll be as gentle as possible with my brutality. Assuming you drew this by hand, you could have thrown this into illustrator to clean up your lines a bit, if you have access to it. If this was all digital then I would say that use of the find edges filter in your filter gallery would have been a better route to go. Overall, however you're on the right track, you just need to work on your curves a bit more, the pen tool will work wonders for you, this is all assuming you have access to photoshop. Peace to you ^^

I love the lighting on this, especially the vignette you've got around the border. Only advice I can think of offering is a light touch of the guassian blur to make your foreground pop out better. Beyond that I think it's flawless Josh. XD

Painted in Paint Tool Sai and edited in PhotoShop. I'm looking for advice on how to improve. And also, do you think I'm missing out on any features I could be using with either Sai or PS? PhotoShop seems to have a lot of features I cannot figure out.

help me out guys, this is two different version of a commission I am doing for my Sargent. The ideas for this piece is a tribute to the fallen soldiers who have found their way to heaven. Please critique tell me about any changes you'd like to see and which one you like the bast.

I like the right version. The colors are great (i love the combination of red and blue) and it looks a little bit vintage, isn't? So I would choose the right version. And I think his legs are a little bit too long. ;) That's what I would change in it.

In any case, it is a great photomanipulation.

I'm sorry for my english..

Hi! So I'm not entirely sure who all is into chibis here, (and I'm new, so forgive me if this is the wrong forum) but I would really appreciate some critique on this! [link]

This is my first digital piece ever, so I am most definitely still learning things, and whatever you can tell me to do differently I will happily receive!

I would add a little bit more sharpness to those areas that you would like to focus (for example the eyes or the lips in the first painting). In my opinion that gives a focus for the beholder.

I like them alot you have a great style!

Not bad for a first go, I remember my early days working digitally, in fact my very attempt was taking a panel from a pen and ink comic I had done and painting over that.

I actually didn't even use a tablet, I used my finger on a laptop touchpad, but it worked out fine as a first attempt and I later got a Wacom Intuos 3 which I still use today to make images like this one.


For your Image I would say you are off to a good start, I always personally start with a good sketch underneath where I outline where I want the shadows to be and then layer with a translucent brush, adding in shadows first and then eventually getting the right amounts of darks and lights by the end. I would also vary your pallete a bit more. Even if the overall color is red, their are going to be a lot more than just varying shades in there, the shadows for example are going to have some blues and the lighter areas are going to have more yellows and oranges.

Still, it's a good start and Artrage is a good program to work with. You've got the right idea and everyone has to develop their own process, so keep working at it and you'll find yours.

wooow, that's awesome if it is your first attempt. The pose looks very dynamic. That's nice! I advise to complete his full body shading like you have done it before. than I would go on to give him more contrast between the colors and a little bit detail to 'highlite' (-is that the right word for it?) those areas you like the most. In my opinion this gives every painting/drawing the biggest personal mark. Like 'Look, those areas I like the most on it, so why I don't highlite them?'
So please: Go on drawing. Finish him. I'm sure he is going to like very nice!

Hey :)
I kind of started my drawing career yesterday submitting my first finished painting for a contest from league of legends.
As I don't have much practical experience, just knowledge from tutorials, streams and other inspiring art, I had to spend an incredible amount of time to achieve that. That is what I came up with:



I would be pleased if someone could tell me to improve :)
I obviously don't have a "style" yet but I guess I won't go into realism too much as I did here, I think.

Thanks! :thanks:

Fairly new to GIMP and digital coloring. Still need to work some kinks out but I would love some constructive criticism and/or feedback on these pieces. They are for a project I am doing based off of various elements (traditional and non-traditional).

Elemental Equine # 1: Lava
[link] (His name is Vulcan. He is the reason why I began this project.)

Elemental Equine # 2: Water
[link] (Aquina is my personal favorite.)

Elemental Equine # 3: Earth
[link] (Not the best. The vines were very difficult. He is the one I would really like feedback on.)

So there they are!
