Back again from #FeedbackFrenzy! Sorry I didn't comment on this yesterday, I was super tired. <<
I do really like the lighting on this picture, it's interesting and eye-catching.
However, the hair is very streaky. You can tell that the strands are brushstrokes, because of how each stroke curves to the right a little at the top of each stroke. It's also kinda chunky and frayed in the section of hair that's on his hand.
The face looks good, aside from maybe some strange lighting around the eyes and cheeks. The eyes seem a little unfocused too. (I dunno if that was on purpose or not)
The rain on the window looks good, but the diagonal streaks, are uneven. I'm not sure I quite understand what they're there for though...
Also, help me out here, what's with those red things outside? It looks like there are ghosts holding rubies or something.
Im going to jump right into this one as well, as it looks like your trying out some things here.
Metallic surface? Polished look? With hair? Some things that are all difficult to do, let alone in one picture. But i have to give you credit for attempting and working on these things as most people are scared by them let alone post them to be seen. Huge kudos for that.
I like the hair, but im not sure what is going on below her chin. Is she holding someones to her chest? Tool me a while to pull something in their, but im not sure. Mabye a slight turn to show part of her face if it is. If you detailed the eyes it would look cool, but it just seems like a work in progress to me. Im drawn to the window though, as i like the rain and gloomyness and how it reflects the mood of the robot. Very nice addition to the picture.
Her left eye is missing some depth, and her brow above that should be a little below the right one to show the head tilt and perspective a little better. Great job on the rest of your anatomy. Some things to work on with shading is under her hair on the left side could be darker, and same with the right cheek. If you shadowed the right part of her face you could get away with the eye problem, but you have some great things going on with the cheekbone so its up to you. I like the hair. It looks like a robot wig and thats exatly what i like.Your really good on the hair. Well done!
Overall i think you just need to get in their and detail it some more and you would have something great!
This picture really is different from any other - the coloring style and mood of it is very unique and original. I love how the silver and blue mixed together compliment each other, and how the hair color is a duller silver than that of his face and hand. His chin could be a little more prominent,but that's just me - it depends on your style and the way you want to draw it. (: The shine and shadow is very captivating, and, again, I can't believe this only took an hour!
One thing I noticed when I first saw the picture - the hair. Each individual strand varies in color which is a nice touch, but on some of the thicker strands and bunches, the stroke of the brush skews to the right a little bit, which doesn't look as real as it could have been. The hair he is holding with his hand seems a little too thick, and some parts are blurred too much, which looks weird when put next to the non-blurred section of hair above his hand. The smaller detail was that his right eye is just a little further up than his left eye. I hate drawing symmetric faces as much as the next person, but, hey, practice makes perfect ( or at least very close to. ) The left eye could also be less wide, since his head isn't facing forward.
Overall, however, the mood of the picture is fantastic!! I look forward to see what you can create in the future with all of the tips you've received from these happy deviants! (:
Thank you! Hair is always a brainspew moment for me in quick paintings so I totally understand the erraticness of it and I agree. Human eyes and symmetry really screw with me too, way too used to anthros, so I need to draw people more.
i like the metallic look of his skin, and the glowing seams in the face and hands. the skin texture is also really cool, you got the metallic white look really down especially on the lips and nose.
my only crit on your humans, which has stayed the same for a long time, is your nasal-labial lines. i know you're going for a certain realism, with the age/imperfection theme, but they always seem just slightly over-pronounced. it doesn't necessarily take too much away from your work, but i just think the mouth areas could be softened up a little.
i hardly ever crit, i actually dislike it. but you always ask and seem really eager to get any tips or feedback so i thought i would.
i really like this picture, though-- i like how you've made him the focus, and we can only acknowledge that he's holding someone. it ain't about them right now-- we've got his gaze to deal with. it's interesting like... there's a secret there. could be wisdom, could be somethin a little naughty. maybe both.
Thanks dude- and yeah I am absolutely fine with critique. I see what you mean about the lips also, =Cnids pointed that out- I think generally the lines of the face are too dark on all of my humans. <____> I DO NOT UNDERSTAND SKIN.
I've been practising metallic surfaces, and reflective ones. I'm glad it's paid off. <3
