So I'm doing dog for my good friend, but this time I am really struggling with inspiration and motivation. Some of it comes from bad reference photo, and I really wanted to paint a great portrait for him. Please, tell me why you think of it and critique. Its not finished yet, but problem won't do any major things anymore.
So this started as a lion sketch but i went with the feeling. This is kinda my first imaginary piece, not a lot of references use. I dont like it, but im still happy that i did it. Its still work in progress but i feel its mostly rendering now. Things im unhappy with: Turned in to line drawing style. Didnt plan it much, not a lot of construction on so lacks depth and form. Contrasts are all over the place. Things i am happy with: I kept at it even tough i wanted to burn it. Used some imagination, tried to make it realistic. Started shading ok, and tried to draw what looks good not what would be realistic.
Hi, im doing a dog painting for a friend. It started ok, did some studies and so on. Now after painting it bigger i kinda went in a different direction and the painting feels really off. Its still early WIP but the values and colors can be seen. I think the yellow light side is mayby off color, or the values of the painting are off. Please, give me your insight/ critique. The photo was taken with a phone, ill take a better one later.
Critique and help appreciated. Woman wearing a dress WiP.
Hi, this is a work in progress. I would appreciate any help and critique you can give. Im trying to make this drawing for a small "community" (dont know what its called) exhibition. Things i know and will fix are the horizon line, some dress and hat parts. Im having some problems doing the bottom part of the dress, her face (its kinda small and i tend to press too much even when trying to go light), and overal shading/tone. The white parts are whiter than in this photo. Im in a kinda hurry too, offcourse :P. The skill level of the exhibition is kinda low so im not too pressured, thats why im going with graphite wich is kinda new to me.
