Beatiful composition and picture. Things that I would look at and fix are mainly the biggest dogs legs and body, it doesnt look very anatomically correct even if the dog is overweight. White dog looks the best in my opinion but he lacks contrast and looks like overexposed photo but this is easy to fix and propably part of your painting process. The middle-ones skull seems off to me, so id look at it to. Overall this will be a beatifull painting. Backround i would leave as is, or work on last if it feels like it.

Thank you, I will go back and take a closer look at the reference image. You are correct about that one leg, and that middle dogs head looks very flat on top as well. WIP

Nice job. Focusing on your background question, to my eye, the background tone is a little dark. The tone works well for the dog in the front, but the tone seems too close to the middle dog and could possibly lighten for the dog in the back. Possibly a gradient that works from center, or working with a gradient that reinforces the composition may push the dogs further forward. The scale of the texture in the background seems a little large, scaling that down, so that you see it as a texture and not its constituent parts, might serve to simplify what you are seeing. That scale reduction may have the result of darkening the texture, but you can take it down reducing the opacity or saturation. The middle dog kind of melds with the dog on the right due to their similar colors, to me, this affects the composition, I see reflected light back to the middle dog at the leg, but could that reflection be used higher toward the head to clarify the order in space. The similar colors in that area formulates an isosceles triangle low at the center which to me, creates a bit of confusion within the composition. I see this more evidently in the thumbnail. One might also try lightening the dog to the rear further using a little license. I hope you find these comments useful. Best.

Working on this Pet Portrait Painting, and I am looking for some critiques. My main concern at this time is the abstract background. Could also use some help with composition and contrast if you have any. Thank you

Hi, Court Do you have any advice on critiquing and giving feedback on caricature? I'm struggling in balance my own opinion on the subject and the opinion of the person doing the caricature. I would like to give advice in a way that people can make their choices more clear and intentional and not force my style into others. How do I do that?

I agree with what Andaries said, plus I would also include a neck of some sort. I know these are Doodles, but a simple neck would really solidify the sketch in my opinion. This kind of looks like a watercolor affect, and with that, the edges around the chin and very messy, and should be cleaned up a bit. Other then that, I really like what you have done here. Keep up the good work.

I think I accidentally posted this in the Comments section rather than the assignments section. Anyway. I’m definitely interested in feedback. Thanks.

The forehead looks good, but your jaw line from the temples to the chin is a nice circular curve, where on the photo, he has almost a straight line from his temple to his jaw, and then another straight line from his jaw to chin. This makes him look chubby and not so thin. In addition, his mustache is much closer to his upper lip. Hope this helps. Keep it up..

Hello, I’m a hobbyist and wanted to try my hand at caricature. Here are some thumbnails I was trying of Robert Downey Jr. I’m pretty sure I’m missing the mark. So any input it very welcome. Thanks.

Ok, to me, the sketch on the first page, Top Row, Center shows the most likeness to Robert Downey Jr. I think he has a more square’ish forehead, and that’s what your missing in the other sketches.

Hi DoodleMick, Funny picture. Good likeness and the idea with the playingyard is Great. One little Thing: for my Personal Taste I would move the see-saw in the background a little Bit to the right, so it does Not Touch his head.

Nice work on all your pieces in your album. They are all very easily recognizable. I don’t know why, but I really like the simplicity of Joh Candy’s hands. So simple, yet so defined. I love the fact that it’s just the hands and no arms, I see the arms even though they are not even there. Excellent work.

Not sure if any of these are spot on, but my eye keeps going to the Top Center one as having the best likeness. Good job

Here’s a caricature of a guy at work that wanted me to paint a caricature of him from his Marine Reserve photo. Be careful what you ask for.
