Master study of a Frank Frazetta painting.
I'm enjoying Gouache. One more master study at least, then I think I might try something original.

Looking for critique
Hey! I recently finished this piece which I was planning to add to my portfolio. Following are the rough and end product. From my point of view I kind of get the feeling of it being little bit muddy especially around her head but I am not sure how to fix that. I would appreciate any helpful critiques Thank you!

Beauty magazine illustration - looking for critique
Hi! I am looking for critique on this illustration I did a while ago. It is meant to be an illustration that could appear in a beauty magazine, with the focus being on presenting the vibrant eye shadow. At firt I was planning to do the background dark. But I felt like it was ruining the feel I was going for so I changed it to gold. It was a bit tricky to avoid the face blending into the background afterwards though. All critique is very appreciated!

I'm practicing Color Studies
Hi, while focusing on greyscale to develop my oil painting technique and process, I'm also doing color studies digitally. Here is my first one. It took roughly 1 hour. Any feedback appreciated :) I'm taking Joseph Todorovitch's "Portrait Painting for Beginners" to learn painting, and Bill Perkins "Color Theory bootcamp" to get an overview of color theory. Both are on New Masters Academy. In the spring I focused on value studies, and I'm trying to bring with me the same focus on organization into my color studies. I started by doing a value study, then I did a hue study, then a temperature study, and lastly marked the range of saturation from 1 to 5. I feel that I have a lot to learn :)

Painted a cute boy. Any comments?
What do you think about it? I like his forehead and eyes. But how would you go about painting messy hair? Also think I could've rendered his chest and vest a little further. What do you think?

Hello I made a new painting,would like some critism
Hello,I did this.I tried making this painting better than before,so I challenge myself by trying to paint a full enviromental background,all with realistic lighting. I think the background turned out nicely,but I feel like the main character's shape is a bit boring,would like some opinions and suggestion on that.Also I would love to know if there's any repetitive texture and on how to fix it.(Alongside that please tell me if anything in the picture doesn't work) I was also looking at this James Gurney and James Bama painting and was interested in trying to copy their thin application of paint. Anyway,that's all,thank you for your feedback :D (Also as always @Christopher Beaven and @Liandro any thoughts?)

In need of digital painting critique
Hi I did this painting digitally. It took me a few months because I was busy doing other projects but I finally managed to finish it very recently. My goal wasn't to make it pitch accurate to the reference but for it to be believable and convincing. Critiques on shading, color, composition, measurement, or anything you can think of that is relevant will be much appreciated.

Velázquez studies
Tried to challenge myself to draw a study of Velázquez a day for a week. Was very fun and intersting experience. Besides the fact that drawing Velázquez is like eating a delicious candy you can't really get enough, i guess the main takeaway from the experience is that instead of doing 100 brushstrokes its better to do 10 but in the right place and its gonna look more realistic. Also the light and shadow is very clear wich makes forms more readable, If anyone studied Velazqquez or any other classical painter i would like to hear what you've learned from it. Also any feedback on the studies is welcome.

Hello I made another fanart,would like some critism.
Hello I made this painting,it was inspired by this painting the late great James Bama did of a cowboy in the snow.I love the snowy setting of it and wanted to try to mix it with my own interest.So I thought of making it a touhou fanart and adding Reimu (Girl in the painting) to it. I already painted her several times before so this time I tried to reel of her ussual design and make my own version of it.Though I did looked up several other Touhou artist to get ideas.I got the shirt idea from this fanart from fixro2n.For the small dots on her bow and shirt i took it from this Nikorashi-ka fanart.For the bag of miko stick she's holding I got it from this amazing Harano Kaguyama fanart.For the belt and little bag on her hips. I took it from this Ideolo painting.Alongside those I also took use my older sketch of Reimu and wanted to capture that normal tired teenager look. But anyway,going back to the painting,I would some critism on what's not working with the painting.Unlike the Bama painting I made the edge of her silloutte more soft to simulate the feeling of being in a blizzard.I don't know if this works or not so feedback would be appreciated.Alongside that I would also love to know if any part of the painting isn't clear and how to improve it Well that's all I hope I didn't bable too much,thanks again for the feedback :D(Also as always @Christopher Beaven and @Liandro any thoughts?)

Still-life oil painting (needs an advice)
I did this quick oil painting alla-prima from life today and I'm not sure what to improve. It's just a sketch/practice.. but I really like some areas of this painting and some not. I see that I have to improve on painting the drapery. I want to start painting daily but I don't know what to paint to improve my skills faster. Any advice??

Old car, fixed the wrong way
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.

Painting critique needed
Hi, Here is a still life Gouache painting I did today to try out my new Plein Air painting setup that I based on the compact Watercolour setup that James Gurney uses. I used a Red, Blue and dull Yellow to mix the colours for this painting with a higher Chroma Yellow introduced for the Lemmon. Any critique would be welcome!

How do I add more details?
Hello everyone! This is my first post! I'm 29 and have been a graphic designer and digital illustrator for 5 years. I've always worked and studied alone, recently I finally felt quite burned out like a hamster in a wheel. I came across a YouTube video one day about finding mentors and communities, then I suddenly realized that seeking feedbacks is critical for my art improvement and my mental health, so I decided to venture outside of my comfort zone. I would really appreciate if anyone can provide critiques on the following images: Image #1 is an old painting from last year that I left unfinished because I don't know how to finish it. How do I continue refining? Is there any way I can improve this painting? I struggled to shade at first as well, but I eventually found a better solution. I also struggle to draw her face. Image #4 is a recent painting, I'm getting better at anatomy and drawing clothing folds (thanks to Proko), but in this painting I used a different shading technique: flat coloring-ambient occlusion-light-dark-saturation boost. I'm still looking for a way to make the girl look more natural. There is still anatomy problem for sure, but what else? Is the edge too sharp? Should I add more details on her skin? Using airbrushes to begin a drawing is making me afraid to use hard brushes to add details later. That's all for now, I hope to share more in the future and rework on my many unfinished projects! Please let me know what you think! Thank you! -Ziwei

[Looking for Critique] Bumblebee Power Metal!
Hi proko! I've been having an existential crisis that can only be resolved by LearningTM! I've been trying to make progress, but having a schedule of four completed pieces a day for like a week is really butting into my practice time. But I managed to make some time today to draw a power metal thing based on a species my friend has. I think the values could be a lot more exaggerated (this is power metal we're talking about, after all), and the background is a little sketchy. I think a big issue, for me, is adding detail. Making so many pieces on such a time crunch means that, most of the time, detail isn't really an option like it is in professional studios (presumably) I think the colors also don't have that certain *pizazz* that you get with professional art. I'm almost certain it's due to my lack of plein air study, but getting started on plein air study can be expensive. Also, the title isn't really legible. Is there any way I could improve these problems in future works? Does this work as a portfolio piece? What would you recommend I study next, based on this?

Would Love a Critique
I've been working on a project with an fairy and elf fighting each other for teeth. I was able to get some better lighting structure on this from its previous iteration. But I do feel like this piece feels stale and off colored. Angle wise it might be a bit too on the nose, and I'm struggling to combine color and value together properly. Any thoughts are appreciated. The darker one was my first attempt going for a more dramatic noir look but I felt like it just didn't read well.

Painting critique needed
Here's a quick artist study I did in Gouache of a painting by James Gurney. The purpose of this test was to get a full range of colours with a Tryad of only Cyan, Yellow and Magenta. The diamond shape in the top left is used to test the different hues that I can achieve with the chosen Tryad. Any critique would be welcome! (I ran out of yellow so I couldn't finish the background) Original painting: http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/2020/09/triads-now-available.html
