I'm a freelance artist. I love to draw/paint (digital and oil) concepts of characters, environments and their elements, and also create logos.

The hair rendering is awesome and I like how confident your lines are. I think his upper face is generally ok except the right eye is too close to the nose. Generally you can draw a straight line down from the inner eye to the outer edge of the nose wing. I don't know if it's because the eyes are too close or the nose is too wide, or a little bit of both. His lower face is much too short. It looks like his entire jaw bone is missing. The chin seems long enough, but the jaw bone from the corner of the jaw to the chin is too thin.

Hey @Rebecca Shay ! Thanks for the feedback. I'll pay more attention to those details in my next drawings =)

Hi everyone. Today I decided to test some new brushed I created in Krita by painting this face. I made this without looking at references. All feedback is welcome! PS: don't look bellow the head! LMAO

Hey @Alessandro Dalponte! Great concept! I did a paintover concerning general composition things. But as for color, the image is dominantly on the cool side so it starts to flatten out. The scene is lit like a sunny day so we want to inject warmer colors to be consistent with the lighting- and painting the feeling of warm sunlight hitting the aqueduct would be a nice moment to capture. Painting the field of grass with greens closer to yellow also helps capture the daylight. This allows us to create depth as well by painting the mountains a much more blue and desaturated green in the background. There's a spectrum of warmer to cooler in all colors- these temperature shifts make a painting more believable and interesting! But again, cool concept and great work!

Hey @Josh Sunga! Thanks for the advices and for the paintover. It sure looks better and more believable. I really need to start pushing those shapes and contrasts more, just like you said. I'll explore more of that on my next painting or maybe if I paint the aquaduct again.

it's pretty and fun. 1) your clouds are pretty cotton candyish. that's a style thing- so 50/50 on that. 2) going to have to reverse the light on the moon, (or else you are in a system with two suns... but that still doesn't work because the light that is hitting the scene would still be hitting the moon in the background) 3) I'm not seeing enough temperature change in the shadows on the grass in the foreground- and the hills in the background need more atmosphere perspective turning them grey like the sky in the horizon. - did you have any reference for the color palette on this? Without one, this is mostly subjective and it will be hard to get it "right"

Hey there, thanks for the feedback! I didn't have any reference, this one I tried to simply paint everything by imagination. I think I'll need to use cooler and more saturated colors on the shadows when I paint sunny day scenes. Now that you mentioned, the background is really green, I need to work better on that and other points too in my next one. Thanks again!

I really like the colors in this one, you added a bluish hue to the mountains in the back while keeping the stronger darks in the mid and foreground. And the clouds provide an interesting almost Pixar like aesthetic. One thing to note is the phase of the moon in relation to the main lighting of the sun. If I’m not mistaken the moon would have more of a gibbous shape towards the light source.

Thanks! I just painted the moon in a way I thought would be cool, didn't pay too much attention to it LOL. Next time I'll be more careful.

Concept of an ancient aquaduct that defies gravity. What are your thoughts on it? I'm still struggling with colors. All feedback is welcome and advices are welcome!
Arielle Ronin
Wow your drawing is beautiful! I think you can push the darks a little bit more :) Would love to see how your drawing skills matches with watercolour pencils :D Do you plan to try watercolour pencils anytime soon? :) Greetings!

Hey there!! Thanks for the feedback, I guess I need to get over the fear of making things too dark (that still haunts me a little bit =P). I always have watercolor in mind as something I NEED to start doing! I plan to start as soon as I finish some courses! Greetings to you too!

Just made this drawing using color pencils and pigment liners. Please give me some feedback! This drawing is about a Yogi adventurer and his friend enjoying the view.

Feedback, with that high key of a light source and direction, the cast shadow under the car would be darker compared to the darkest darks. Would I get into that car if that was my Uber ride? yes, yes I would. Keep going, want to see more crazy cars.

Yup, you are right, that should be a lot darker. Thank you for the the feedback! It would also make the car stand out a little more. =)))

That's awesome! You have a really good awareness of perspective and that's a really cool design. Shape design for the fenders could be a little more defined and well realized. Good stuff

Thanks! That's a good point! I'll work better on that on my next one.

In this one I used Koh-I-Noor color pencils and Staedtler pigment liners. All feedback on what I can/need to improve and suggestions are welcome! The colors on the photograph I took are a bit washed up, that's the best I could get with my phone camera.
Alessandro Dalponte
Hey @Jo Edgehill , nice drawing, the gesture is really good! One thing I think might help is to define a little bit better the shadows. You could add some contrast to it and also use it to better show the forms of the body and the clothing of your character.

Hi everyone! I created this weird version of spongebob square pants. I show the painting process on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/uWBk-Pk9Isc Your feedback and advices are more than welcome!
Josh Sunga
Hey @Alessandro Dalponte ! I like the prior feedback about lighting and color variation- but I wanted to apply that on top of different silhouettes. There's nothing wrong with your initial design other than that the concept hasn't been fully explored yet! I did a paintover to try to push and pull the proportions and I made the material a more definitive canyon rock. (There was a conflict for me between the overgrowth/vines and the seemingly dry environment). I changed the colors, but my main focus was to simply to create a variety of designs- which is primarily based in shapes and silhouettes. You could try to think of the design as a flat graphic shape- especially with rocks as the subject matter you have more freedom to modify the silhouette. Anyway, rock portals are always a fun concept- thanks for sharing!

Hey @Josh Sunga! Thanks for the feedback, it is really helpful. Seeing your desings made me realize how monotonous mine is. I think I was too worried about making everything "right", then I ended up creating something not dynamic at all. Color still is something kinda new to me, I have to explore a lot more. In my next paintings I sure will use your advices and explore a variety of designs using different shapes. Again, thank you very much!

Hey Alessandro, This is a cool character design, nice job. The biggest issue is that all your colors are independent of each other. There is going to be orange reflected in the skin where they are close. The opposite is also true. To lighten a color like green, don't just add white, it makes the color look dead and chalky. You should always add some yellow with it to keep the color alive. That goes for all your colors, you have to color shift when darkening and lightening them. You also need to build more contrast by darkening your shadows and not have them be all the same value. I did a quick paint over to show you what I mean. I hope this helps :)

Hey Steve! Thanks for the feedback! I'll use your corrections as a guide to improve and change my paintings. The painting sure looks a lot more vivid and has more depth this way!
