Awesome job! Really love the color choices and lighting/shading! Not the mention the line work. Definitly taking some notes over here.
Love the color composition! The different hues used in the shading make the lighting seem interesting. Good stuff!
Impressive technicality dude! The shading and texturing is on point! There is some parts ( like the upper left Bicep) where the anatomy seems a bit off. The triceps/biceps on the left arm are bigger than the shoulder while its isn't on the other side. I also suggest using darker tones to create greater contrast. The torso kinda blends with left arm so greater contrast could make the parts easily discernible at a glance. All in all tho, Great stuff! I'd love to see what else you could do with your technicality!
Hi TriXeL! Thank you. I find your constructive criticism very helpful. I am aware that the anatomy is off here and there, that's why I'm drawing these - in hope that I'll figure it out in the process :) I have always struggled with getting it right. Mostly I just enjoy it, though. I find drawing with this technique quite relaxing. Hopefully, in the future it will even look realistic enough.
I want to like it but something about it ticks me off. Maybe something with the color composition or the style contrast between the minimalistic background and the higher detailed foreground . I don't like how the rocks are compact on the top half and drops down suddenly on the bottom, makes the composition of the ground feel not cohesive. Idk. I'm not a hater though; the pixel technicality is pretty good and I especially like the pattern used to shade the tree (a mix up from the usual dithering). Not bad, but not up to par with your other works (in my opinion). Can't wait to see what else you do!
Aw thank you for the constructive feedback! I know this was rushed but even though It's not as good as any submission in my gallery I made I somewhat enjoyed making it. :)
If people dislike or hate my art and give less than 2 stars I don't flag their comments but alternatively I advise them to look elsewhere. It's their choice. I just make art for fun and not to seek attention. ;)
Texturing on the arm looks very spot on. Be aware of anatomy though. Specifically in the facial region. That's where the image get a bit wonky. Decent stuff regardless.
I like the gradation of the line and edges. The form of the figure doesn't seem completely natural, particularly in the feet. The staff seems a bit off in thickness and feels a bit awk. Besides that, this is pretty well done.
The smooth vector art in this doesn't bled well with the pixel figure. The central figure doesn't feel consistent. It comes of as chunky, lumpy and uneven. Shading is simplistic and plain. Dithering a method I like to use a lot. Gradating the edges with different shades is another option. Figuring out how you want to make shading your own takes a lot of experimentation. It took me forever to start getting mine. Hopefully this helps! Keep creating.
Even though the lines are drawn by you originally, this picture feels very superfluous and unoriginal from the perspective of the viewer. Try bringing new life to the image. Not rehash something players of the game have seen already. Also, add some more frames to the animation. It seems very choppy when fluid motion would fit it better. Stay determined though and keep creating!
haha thanks ;3
The animation seems interesting but feels void of a purpose. Really interesting though! If you drew the original picture as well, that show cases incredible realism.
it's a photo of my friend, but i spent a while brushing over it to make it smoother, and the rest of that effect is from a gif optimizer. i agree that these pieces dont really have much direction at this point in time, but im hoping to make a more complex project soon where i'd start with drafts and create at least 200 frames, whereas this is like 30 that i made up as i went along. my first gifs were nothing but simple color changes or two frame animations, so this is all very new to me, and i could call these experiments in movement and line/shape more readily than finished pieces.
i've been considering getting a tablet so i can start doing more detailed digital painting with a stylus, so hopefully one day i can achieve that level of realism. thanks tho!
The concept and idea is a good but the execution isn't exactly as good. The lighting seems good but your blend of colors, anatomy, and texturing isn't the best. I think the reliance of bold outlines instead of textuirng creates an odd feel to it. Try studying more examples of what in saying. I'm sure you can create pretty awesome content as you improve. Keep creating friend!
