- Looking for feedback
Hobby painter trying to improve skills. 90 percent happy but was wondering what would be needed to take him to the next level.
Edit. 1)Added eye veins.
2)Darkened pupil to red and also added red to eye stalk pupils.
3)Fixed white line below eyes 4)Fixed gum line 5)Attempted to lighted scales on top left and tried darkening with a bit of red to bottom right 6)fixed left horn 7)fixed eye transition gradient
Thanks everyone for feedback
Maybe more contrast in the scales and body. That eye is awesome!
Not who I'd want to run I to in a dark alley. Or for that matter a bright alley. Or anywhere in fact. Looks great!
Technically you are on point. If I had to find fault, and I am searching here, it is composition. The gums are nice contrast but otherwise the model is lots of yellow and green. On the iris color veer more towards the red or maybe work some blood shot or injected veins into the sclera.
Really well done.ID: gq4sg88
I did try veins in the eye. Didnt work well so i faded them out...too much. Will try again. I Will try more red in the eye for contrast but how do you contrast his body?
This looks great! The highlights on the eye balls should all be from the same light source, so try to imagine where it would be in relation to the model when you're highlighting the eyes.
Everything else is awesome!ID: gq509yd
Yeah i dont know why i did most of them the same and not others. Afraid to try again. The white will be a pain to cover. Wonder if i could scratch it off.
Job's a good'un mate, you nailed it.
If you're looking for absolute nitpicks:Bottom left of the eyeball, could use some blacklining, some of the white of the eye got on the bottom eyelid. More gentle gradient to define the shape of the eyeball. There a pretty harsh line between the white of the eye and darker bits on the left and the right. Volumetric highlighting. Stick this picture in a grey-scale filter and check to see if you can tell how it's lit. I believe you're already applying this idea (though this could be a trick of the lighting where you took the pic), but you could exaggerate this more, stronger highlights on the top left, weaker highlights on the top right, stuff like that. I love the horns on the right, the horn on the top left needs that sharp line feathered. There's one stray smidge of gums-pink on the front middle teeth. More color variation in the green. As it stands, it's pretty uniform. Some really light glazes of yellows and blues in light and dark areas respectively would provide some visual interest.
All of that said, this is really well done. I'd happily place that on my shelf as-is.
That bad boy turned out amazing! Nice work on the teeth and eyes. If you want any changes, maybe a contrasting color drybrush on the green, but honestly, he looks really good alreadyID: gq50cki
Attempted. See update. Thanks.
What layering did you do on the gums? Off black base with red layer?ID: gq4qvhh
It was pre primed grey. Mixed black, faerzress purple and red. Actually that was for inside mouth. The gums i tried, the purple,.red, and a hint of white. Was trying for a more majenta and less dark wine. Looks almost the same unfortunately. The black was nuln oil wash.
It looks really good! Some tweaks I would do: I'd add a bit more depth in the stalk eyes. The orange looks a bit flat. I'd do a darker orange as a sort of outline around the iris. A gloss coat on them would be neat, too.
You could have the green scales be a little more dramatic, darken the shadows between them and brighten the highlights.
I agree with the other comment saying that veins in the eyes would be good, the off-white of the sclera is a good color, but it's a little too plain.
And of course, gotta finish that base!
But really, great job, it looks awesome.
Well done you
pretty nice, well done
Looks great dude. Good job especially on the main eye and all of the little eyes.
