I very much like how this was composed. You can tell the wind is blowing from how her hair is flying to the side, and as I said before, the red is great, it pops out. If I could offer you any advice, I would say really push for contrast. Darker shades would do you a lot of good. Maybe adding highlights in the lens of the shades could give it more of a three-dimensional effect. Overall, the hands look good, and hands are hard to do, but it could help to study your own hands and see how they look when they bend, because a couple of the fingers look a tad off. Also, pushing for more values in the hair could make it look less two dimensional as well. Overall though, you did a really great job, and I wish you the best of luck as you continue to create art.
Thanks so much for the response. I have been hearing a lot recently that I need to go darker, so I might try that...i did try to some on this one, but kept forgetting. haha. I'll take a look at the hands again and see what I can do. Thanks so much again!
Not a problem, it truly is a joy for me to see a young artist starting out. I guess I'm young too, but it feels good to help other people. And you will definitely keep in proving. Like, looking through my gallery, I've come from [link] to [link] a few short years and I couldn't believe it until I compared! Improvement will sneak up on you, and it feels great. If you ever have any questions or even want to offer me some critique, I am pretty much on this site every day. I look forward to seeing more from you
Th last link wasn't working...
Thank you so much. You're so sweet. I love any feedback and critiques I can get.
Even though I've only been drawin for 3 months; i can see a small improvement in my work and it's a great feeling.
Oops! Oh well, you can just go to my gallery and look at the last couple portraits I did.
I honestly love to help It's cool to watch people grow and learn as artists.
