I am almost done with this piece, but I feel like something is off, but I cannot put my finger on what it could be, or if there is even something off.

Is it just me?

you have no clean value grouping and the values are all very close together in range which makes that nothing stands out. you don't use your values correctly to show the form of things and this makes everything flat. the pose is really stiff, the face is borderline symbol drawing/ you have these weird textures going on that don't add anything. study hands. study anatomy.

>>2409031

also, forgot to type, you need to define a clear light source next time. I'd advise you to drop this because there is no saving it, study, study, then try again. Don't let my crit deter or discourage you, keep on going! Only way is up from here. Good luck.

Thanks man and no worries, I appreciate the advise, critique is the only way to improve.

And yes... I see your point, I did focus on the shading, but I can see that I need to exaggerate it more (in my case). As for the light source I plan to do more work on that tomorrow, some dynamic lighting.

If you mean the textures at the background, I did that only for a quick background, I am pretty unskilled at environmental designs, I usually have no background, but I will study that some time in the future as well, for now I want to focus more on character designs.

When doing color studies, do you pick the colors with the waterdrop(?) tool or do you paint without using that (so without colour picking).

Also what is the best way to do color and value studies, i just use random internet pictures. Should I always do studies from real life situations or also other fanart or paintings?

If you pick colors from the photo reference, then you learn nothing. Normally you pick from color wheel. Jard mode is mixing digitally from basic colors.
>>
Lately, I've been using Adobe Capture. Shit's great for getting a color palette, as long as your picture is good.

Unfortunately, it requires a smartphone.

But you can't mix the same way digitally, at least not in PS. What are you even talking about?

What makes a landscape give you the effect of "being there"? When I look at a lot of landscape paintings/photos I feel like I am looking AT a picture, rather than being in it regardless of the fact that I have it on full size view filling up my whole monitor. One of Stålenhag's strengths in my opinion is that he often achieves the effect of being immersed in his painting. Is it as simple as the fact that he often has the viewpoint rather low on the horizon and shows a lot of ground?

Yeah, pretty much. It's a fairly easy concept to understand if you think of yourself as the cameraman taking the shot and the horizon line is your own eye level. In this image, you are standing right behind those 2 people. If the horizon line was even lower, it would seem like you fell down or dropped the camera or something, which would give the composition an...

I have a few questions for y'all.

When do you know that you've gotten good? Is there even a state where you can git gud, or is it just an endless pursuit—even when accounting for practicing the fundamentals non-stop? Is the constant dread of "I am shit?" a permanent thing in the long term?

Is it worth it to buy Corel Painter X3 just for blenders? I've recently learned that Corel blenders are awesome, but I wonder if there's a better way to blend in Photoshop CC that I've missed out on somehow...

Oh, and lastly, if you're...

So I bought me a kneaded eraser for my silly little sketchbook, when I looked at it it said it can also be used for charcoal. One of my teachers uses charcoal for paintinks so.
Tl;Dr what I want: what is charcoal and how do I use it?

>>2407411
Go buy charcoal for drawing and try it yourself. No, really, most of these stuff is a use-it-yourself-and-see rather than explaining what does it do.

It feels really cool using them, interesting tones. However be ready for the black mess fucking everywhere in your first tries.

>>2407411
Charcoal is mostly a beginner tool. It's like having a big-ass 9000B pencil. You can sketch really quick and make fluid lines and corrections with absolute ease. You can also get a wide range of tones.

Get one if you're too retarded to use a pencil properly.

And be careful because the slightest touch will smudge the shit out of your lines.

I figure we start a thread for clients who ask artists a whole load of questions in other threads. I figure we can use this thread to help out and give advice to client both new and old that buy and pay for art pieces.

Questions like; SHOULD I BE WAITING 6 MONTHS FOR MY COMMISSION I PAID FOR or IS IT OKAY TO ASK FOR A COMMISSIONS OF MY HOT NEIGHBOR THAT LIVES NEXT DOOR TO ME THAT I HAVE A MASSIVE CRUSH ON?

So, clients ask away.

Does /ic/ critique writing, short stories?

I need some feedback on a story before continuing with my assignment. I know this is more /lit/ territory, but I'm writing for comics, and it's a slightly different process, and I think the majority of /lit/ is a little too "high brow" to give me the sorta feedback I need.

I just want different opinions on what I could do differently, change, etc..
