Quick question. Does this piece show that I am improving in my art?
I am trying something way out of my comfort zone, and that is using expressions, something I haven't done in a long while. Considering the painting will have four subjects, total, I expect I will have a lot of layers to work with. Having to name all of them will be a pain in the ass...
So...What should I add in the background?
Finally, do you guys think I have talent? My honest answer from me is YES, I do. It's okay if you think otherwise, but I just would like to know the reason why you think the way you do, and be honest about it.
its better...than your older stuff to a certain extent. but I hardly see how this is way out of your comfort zone, now drawing something from real life, THAT would be a good thing to do outside your comfort zone instead of all the same cartoony stuff. or even experimenting with a totally different style. or a totally different body type for godsake.
add some more trees to make it a forest, most pokemon shit happens in the woods it seems, also darken the horrizon line, I told you to that with your other drawings like a year ago.
also talent would imply that you have natural ability you did not have to work much to obtain. You do not have much of that, but you can always learn and improve, ON THE CONDITION that you are open minded and take your process seriously.
And I do take my process seriously. It can take hours before I get a pose right, but you're right. Maybe throwing in different style here and there would be better than the usual cartoony stuff. Besides, there's nothing wrong with something like semi-realism, right? I can do that, or at least try to.
