I'm going to start off by saying that I actually love this painting so I feel kinda bad critiquing it. Firstly, on the whole I love her hair - it has realistic highlights and colour variation and you've done the tips incredibly well, especially the really short hairs - however... where are the roots? I realise with shorter hair it's harder to see the roots, particularly on a (natural/newly dyed) blonde, but the complete lack of them here is a bit weird. Do you not like ears? Only, you've gone into incredible detail with the rest of the features but then seem to have thrown the ears in as an after thought. I do adore the detail of the eyes and the cuts, though. You've managed to give her an aura of great pain, but also made her look like she doesn't - can't - care anymore. Another thing about the features - although prior to getting beaten up I'm sure your character's lips would have been the same perfect red that she has here, but afterwards, surely they're more split and dogged looking? I don't know, this could just be my personal opinion. Finally, I hate to say this, but I really don't like the blood splatter off her right shoulder (left to us). I don't see the point of it and think it retracts from the rest of the painting. Ok, I lied, I have one last thing to say, although this isn't criticism, it's curiousity - why is the top of her head glowing? Anyway, I hope this helps and I look forward to seeing more of your work *FranScribbles
“Wasted Youth” is very raw. =arvalis not only did a fantastic job capturing the emotion but also the severity of this girl’s wounds. Just looking at her makes you almost feel each punch and blow to the face. And yet her calm demeanor suggests otherwise; smoking the cig carelessly makes you wonder what kind of life she lives, and if it’s on the verge of ending. And perhaps the light above her head is a sign that the violence is finally over for her? The light's focus is a great technique of bringing the viewer to the character. A very concentrated and explicit piece of art, great job and well done.
This is such a telling and beautiful piece-- I absolutely love it. The dark eyes are amazing-- I've tried to do that before... and failed. I love the hair-- I've also failed at that. And the smoke is just so real... and the cigarette is awesome... and the bruises... and the face... and the simplicity of the background... wow. I can't even tell you how awesome this is in my eyes.
XD YOUR WELCOME plus,This can be some awsome looking zombie or something.like some mini boss in some battle(I have a lot experience in gaming and I as well want to make my own game,I even got a name for it and a storyline...well atleast most of it xD) I'm trying to create my own characters and stuff like that,but mostly....there based on my friends from Chatango and Real Life. Your art is awesome,and I really wish I could draw just like you man!
Well not sure why she would be a zombie, she is just a bit beaten up. Good attitude, just keep working on it. Ive been working on a video game project with a few friends since i was your age. Playing game is less important than studying games if you really intend to make your own.
First of all,I'm 15. Second,I know! But by playing some good games,U get ideas and Experience about gaming,getting ideas for battle systems,Missions...shit like that! I'm a action/Role Play/shooting gamer :\ this types are most popular types of game,and I wanna put all this together xD or atleast both RPG and Shooting!
lol you talk to me like i dont know much about games. Id just like to clear up, im going to art school to work in games, i read gaming news daily, i listen to a bunch of gaming podcasts. I might know too much about games lol. Also the shooter rpg has its front runners, its already getting polluted, by the time youre making games, it will be way too populated to stand out in. Try to think of a unique niche to explode. Its all about thought, just keep that in mind
I love how bright his/her[?] hair is, its a very stark contrast to the rest of the face which is battered and bruised. Its almost seems odd, that the hair isn't dirty and disheveled, but I think it brings out the rest of the features.
i like this one man. the eyes are awesome. skin has tha tmessed up look, smoke trail is nice, only thing that stand sout to me is the ears, idk why somethin about the red around them makes them wierd to me, cuz nothin else has tha tmuch red. but dig it man, photo-real is always hecka cool. but i have a question, says u used both p-shop and painter. what did you do in each? i have a hard time not staying to one of them lol
