HIi @Siqi I am always struggling with composition on my own, so I maybe are not a big help... Your drawings are very rough. What is the main theme of your drawing? The water in the pool, or the waterfall? At the moment the falling water seems to be squeezed into the left corner. Deciding on the thing you want to make the focus point can help. Another thing: The sky and the water are very light, the rest of the landscape is dark. Light and dark take about the same area of your drawing. You could try to give the darks more space or the lights.

Hi @Mariana Santos well ... maybe ask just one question at a time? Concerning your silhouettes: I like time and do not see a problem. Just go on...

Hi @taz there is one thing I want to point out: Your characters have nice variety in clothing. But nearly all of them have the same hight and body-shape. I think you should try to include also some smaller, taller, thicker and thinner charakters.

Hi @Atharva Lotake I like the different darknesses of grey in your picture. Nevertheless I think it would be better to remove the mountain behind the castle to make it stand out even more. For me the damages are not visible enough. I think you should try to make the damages more visible in the sillhouette of the castle. There is this destroyed tower on the left. Maybe make it a taller and let us see the bricks. At the moment it could be a rock. And is the figure in the front a centaur? If not I propose that you also draw the head of the horse.

Hi @Steve Reaume I like the idea and the green glowing of the crystal. The foreshortening works for me. On the other side your picture is very hard to read for me. I turned it into greyscale and pushed the contrast (see the attched picture). As you can see, the charcter is really hard to recognize. Maybe try a lighter background?

Hi @bouzex I like your character. Nicely done, funny details! There are two things I am think of. First: you have drawn Emzyg with lots of straight lines (see attached file), except for the spear. This makes him kinda stiff. But maybe this fits to his character? Second: If Emzyg and his ancestors live already very long on a sand planet, I think he should have other feet. Walking on sand is not easy. His feet are big, this is good, but they are also thin. Maybe feet like plates are better not to sink into the sand. Have you ever seen the feet of camels? And the sun would burn his bold heat. Maybe he should grow himself some hair or have a hood or maybe the solar panels could make a kind of umbrella?

Hi @Palmer Vaughn, which feedback are you looking for? Drawings, story, storytelling?

I think you could do both. But I would start with very small sketches, just do get the feeling and be able to do many of them.

Hi @Israel Gelman, very nice work! Great likeness and good exaggeration choices. The caricature part is very good. A little hair in the soup are the eyes. There is something strange about them in your drawing. You made Mark a little cross-eyed and also the eyes are not on the same hight in the face. I tried to show this with a little draw over. But you can fix this easily I think.

Hi @emrecan akyolcu your picture looks interesting. I like the colors for sure and it feels like there is some kind of story. I do not understand, what you mean with "I am stuck". What kind of feedback are you looking for? Looking at your picture I thougt there is a figure in the middle of the lower half. Is it batman? And the structure in the upper half left hoovering over the "building" could be a giant head?

Hi @Israel Gelman as you are working on the abstraction I think you really are eager to learn how to caricture. In my opinion you should wait with the abstraction and spend more time in sketching. Did you do more than this sketch of Mrs. Obama? I would be interested in them, because the sketch you showed is very rough and needs more work to get a better likeness. I think you should work on capturing the forms of the features better. The mouth in your sketch should be broader. The shape of the nostrils needs work and you sketched the eyes so roughly that the shapes are not clear. Did you notice that Mrs. Obamas eyes in the reference picture are different in shape? Take a close look. This could be something you could push in your caricature.

Hi @Noah Albrecht Funny picture, it looks very promesing. Cute idea, that the sound of the cat-glider is "MEEOOOW".

Hi @Jo Edgehill, this is a good study. It is not that easy to draw a tilted head. I like the expression of the girl, the colors and how you did the hair. The shadows you did are not consistent. Because of the shadow of the nose I would say the light source is on her right. But then the shadow under her right jaw i strange. And take a second look at her eyes. First she seems to be a little bit squint-eyed. But I am sure you can easily fix that. And you shoul paint her irises like circles, putting the pupil centered into the iris. I did a quick overpaint to clarify my thoughts.

Here is my final sketch. I worked over the abstraction from the previous assignment. I believe I was able to fix a few things that were not working in the rough sketch. Had a lot of fun working on this. Always looking for suggestions on ways to improve.

Hi @myccal, I recognized Robert Downey Jr. in your drawing, so this most important goal of a caricature is achieved. You really got his smile. And I have two suggestions: 1. Your drawing is quite a reaÎlistic style. In this style it is important, that the face feels right concerning the anotomy. If I cover the eyes of your drawing, everthing feels allright. But the eyes feel strange. They seem to be from another refence. 2. I do not agree with your caricature joices of eyes and nose. If you put the eyes that close I think the nose should be much longer. And for my taste the eyes are too close.

Hi @Yanowiec, Nice drawing and good storytelling! On first glance everything is good: pose, colors, mood, style. As you asked for feedback I tried to take a closer look: Do you know what a tangent is? It is an area, where one grafic element touches another one. These areas tend to draw the attention to them and it is often better to avoid them. There are some tangents or nearly tangents in your drawing. I have overdrawn your picture an marked them yellow. And the plants in the room are hurting the silhouette of the girl (marked red). These areas feel strange for me, especially the area where the plant pokes the girl's left shoulder. Is this intented? And I am not sure about the hands: They do not really grab the bottle and the glas. It looks like they let drop bottle and glas. Is this part of the story?

Hi @Egor oh man, I am really more of a visual type, so I do not know if I got all the points you wrote about... I like your drawings: cool design, colors, poses, everything very good in my opinion. It is clearly visible how much time you put in the drawings. On little thing on your fighter: The lines on the back on her feet look very sketchy in comparison to the rest. I think you shoul work on them an make them more follow the form of the muscles (see attached picture). An concerning your working process: Find yourself a project to work on. Is there a book you like? Maybe Robinson Crousoe? Take a character and make your version. May Robinson as a robot. It is much easier to work on a project, that gives you some limitations.

Hi @John Aycock I like the scene. Obviously it is some future setting because of the robot. But also mixed with things from the past. Seems to be located in a carpenter's workshop. The robot is analysing the puppet head. Not only the one in his hand, but also the Pinocchio in the background. It seems to me, that he wants to understand, what he is. By analysing the puppets he wants to find out more about himself. I like that there is the electric wire on his back. This reminds me on the strings of Pinocchio.

Hi @Sue Ahn , I am not a painter, so I cannot really help you on the painting part. Concerning the caricautre you did a decent job. He is recognizable at once, good likeness!

Hi @Joao Marcedo, I like the two pictures with the space-ship. Seems to be an interesting story. In the first one the spaceship seems to try to escape, because it is more on the right side. The second picture is more balanced. The third picture seems to be under water? It is very rough and I cannot really imagine what is going on.
