Hi guys!! I never dared to integrate character and background but that day has arrived !! And this was the result. I'm quite happy but I know there are many things to improve! I accept criticism ♥ by the way, there are always ducks hiding in my work haha ♥

Hey Feycel! After I did this paintover I saw Luigi has already given you a great critique about value grouping- in this particular image it really helps create depth which I think was an important characteristic to push in this second scene. But on another note, I slightly adjusted some of the shapes in your composition: The mountain peak was tangent with the border so I made it extend beyond it. (Albeit very loosely) I directed the shapes of the tree canopies at more of an angle to help lead the eye back to the character. There is great potential to design pleasing shapes in trees that can also serve the movement of the composition! I lowered the foliage in the midground so that the character would feel more important in the image. I also added a crowd of those stone spirits in the foreground just for myself! Otherwise, I think Luigi hit it right on the head, and your whimsical, colorful style is already great! Thanks for sharing and nice work!

Hi Josh! How are you?! First of all thank you for taking the time and secondly, sorry for the delay, I honestly did not think that someone would see my post and help me in the way that all of you helped me it's really cool and it makes me very happy to be able to see other points of view that help me to realize certain mistakes and better decisions that help push the piece towards something better I loved your version! I think my problem itself is the value, I still do not know how to handle it so I will go right to study them I really thank you for your help and time, I appreciate it very much, I feel indebted

Great pieces @faycel, I love your use of color! I did a brief paint over for your second piece. I think the main composition critique that I had to give for that piece is that your value patterns seemed a bit scattered, and grouping your values would help to make your piece feel a bit more solid. My paint over is only one solution, and you have many options for directions you would want to go in for this painting. Basically what I did is that I made the foreground area a bit darker, I imagined that it would be under the shadows of the trees behind it. This did 2 things. 1 is that it grouped the foreground area so that it was a more unified mass of a darker value. This helped to separate the foreground from the background while simplifying the values you in your image. The second thing that this did is that it darkened the values to allow the magical blue light effect to really pop and work as your focal area. In your original piece, it was hard to make that blue magical effect feel like it was emitting light because the values around it were too bright. Hope this helps! Let me know if there is anything that I can clear up for you, and again, great work!

Hi faycel and well done! I like the athmospere of the blue cave image. The eye stays into the image and the white creature is the main focus. I suppose the owl should be the second focal point? There is the arc, that leads the eye and connects the two. For my taste the background around the owl could be lighter to make the owl pop more. The girl in the woods is colorful and I like the difference between the light and dark area. The girl ist clearly the point of interest. It is not that clear, what she is looking at in the shadow, but it seems to be mysterious, and so it is okey for me to have to look at it more intense. And the big plant in the background is a flaw for me, because it seems to grow out of her head. Is this intented?

hello dominiik! How are you? First of all, thank you for taking the time and sorry for the delay. regarding the girl, it's true !! I just realized that it is vizca !! my god haha I put the plant behind the girl because I felt that something was missing in the background and I did not know how to fill those spaces, it was intentional but now that I see it, it is not so cute haha

These look amazing! You're farther along the art path than me, but I'll do my best to give you feedback. The things that I think could improve in each. Blue cave: the shapes created by the arching rocks are very similar in size and shape. The white floating creature is unclear to me. I can't tell what it is and it's the first place my eye goes. Forest mountain: the drapery/clothing of the girl is odd to me. I don't know exactly what's going on with the shirt. I don't know if the plant should be growing right behind her head. I feel like it maybe disrupts her silhouette. Also the girl is in shadow but she's being illuminated...I think she's being lit by the blue magical light, but the color of her skin suggest that it's being lit by a warm light source
