Post terrible work by otherwise competent artists to boost your confidence and realize that even pros make bad art at times. Pic related by Nathan Fowkes
Incompetent control over saturation levels, edges all over the place, noodly brushwork and to not speak of the unappealing shapes and drawing of the figures. Yuck! It's irrelevant if it did it's job as a profuction art piece. It's incompetently painted. But that's ok. It serves to remind us that even great artists put out subpar work when under tight deadlines.
The proportions of the nose bridge make the eye seem like it's way too deep into her face
it's not bad at all you dumbshit. The thumbnail reads really well, it just needs some refinement...I would probably get rid of the highlights on the left side and tone down the highlights on the kids a little. Minor tweaks in composition like sort of enclosing off the right edge somehow, pushing the shadow background areas darker to pop the main characters forward...tighten up the painting on foreground characters...maybe a little on background...but it's something that's on its way to being a decent piece.
Hiroyuki Imaishi's section in the Art of Panty and Stocking give me a weird sense of hope.
Even though they're not "failures" per se. A failure would mean that he was trying, which he isn't.
