Do you have an image I can critique?

  • @will-terry-art I watch your channel all the time (even as I type this) - and I thought I would submit myself to your criticism.
    My book has published but i think a second edition may merit some changes - at any rate, my last page in the book (SPOILER hahahah). If you have time or inclination, there it is.
    This started to remind me of your #draw50things challenge. This does not have 50 things and was not designed for that but I really want to do that (after i finish another book cover and a YA book - clients come first)

  • Hi @will-terry-art

    I recently discovered your channel via Jack Parker. Love your work!
    I'd like to submit a piece I did for a weekly art blog I'm a part of, The Line it is Drawn on comicbookresorces .com. The artists of the blog do mash-ups and other art based on a theme of the week and people are encouraged to tweet in their suggestions. So this piece is from "Make a six-year-old a superhero" week. My entry, Splatter Punk, the perky, giggly monster hunter, was a time/style challenge for me as I"m really trying to up my game to get work done faster and still retain quality.

    Thank you !

  • After following @Will-Terry for over four years, I was inspired to become a children's book illustrator. I wrote a small story about my depression in 2012 and here is the new front/back cover for the book. I would love your feedback. I really want to get this right.

  • @Nazuba I may not be the illustrious Will Terry but I wanted to throw my two cents in on this one because I love it!

    First off, I don't see a whole lot of difference between your images so I laid them on top of another and I see that your Image 2 is a little more saturated and a tad lighter. #2 is better that way because it will probably print nicer.

    But then I got thinking about that red fruit... beautiful work there. It's just a shame that it matches her dress so closely that it disappears! I ran a quick look at the dress as if it were green (i dont know if those colors you have are culturally significant, so if they are... forgive me.) Since green is complimentary to red, I chose it and it works! Just an idea.


    Thanks for letting me mess around with your stuff. I really like the piece.

  • u do bring the "the illustrious" tho @Bob-Crum

  • Hi Will, your work inspired me, after 30 days of being a student at SVS, i did my first complete digital painting and i hope you will give me some critiques.

    the concept is kinda simple, three teenage friends like to gather at the elephant basement and hang out all the time, however this time the movie is way more scarier than expected, i was trying to capture the reactions under the influence of a scary dark night.
    thank you.

  • @Sami-K I just uploaded my 3rd critique video! You can check it out here - I hope my comments are helpful for anyone watching.

  • Hi Will. Thank you so much for doing this. I am learning lots from everyone's critiques! You can this image if you would like. My name is Jeanne Bowman and my website is and my instagram This is for a picture book I have finished up to the dummy stage about a witch who chases a little girl. Baba Yaga and Vasilssa if you want to know who is who. I am worried mostly about being too "old fashioned" to get much picture book work at the moment.

    Thanks again! 0_1494430770354_jeannebowmanbabariver.jpg

  • Hi @Will-Terry, thank you so very much for doing these for us! I watch and love all your videos.
    If you would like to critique my piece I'd appreciate it a great deal!
    This is for a book dummy project of mine. It's a double-page spread for a small book (fits into a Christmas stocking) that's more tall than it is wide.
    I know for sure that the perspective is off but I don't know how to fix it. I can't even tell if it's just one or both the circular conveyor belt and/or Hollie (the pinkish red head who's standing).
    Thank you so much!

  • @Will-Terry Thank you so much Will it's a honor, i watched it like million times XD and i am trying to follow all the advises you mentioned and trying to apply them on my next piece thank you again ๐Ÿ™‚

  • @Sami-K You're very welcome - thank you for letting me try ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hi Will, here is the piece we chatted about on twitter. Thanks so much!

  • On the last video on YouTube Will mention that this thread would change to a now one. Has that happened? Hoping to submit something next time

  • Hi Will, found your Youtube channel several weeks ago and been watching yourvideos almost every day. I recently tried the #Draw50Things challenge and went with your suggestion of starting off small with 25 items. I really enjoyed the challenge, it's definitely something I have always avoided, I have rarely ever created a whole scene, I mainly concentrate on characters. The story I was trying to tell here is that Ed is scared/uneasy in the shed. I was pretty happy with the outcome but would love some critique since I'm just starting out trying to try and illustrate more professionally and unsure what could be improved. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hello Will,
    I have been following your YouTube videos for some time (Loving the self-publish video). I am new to the forum and slowly trying to work my way into full time illustration. Always dreamed about illustrating (actually creating an entire) children's book. I am still trying to find my style that is unique and dynamic, yet efficient. If you are still doing YouTube critiques, I'd like to submit this piece for consideration. This piece is one scene from a book I am working on by myself to learn and feel how the time and effort all works out. You can use my name in your critique.
    Title: A Scorpions Tale: No Turning Back - A scorpion must reach his destination but has to cross a river among other plights and challenges. Who is daring & compassionate enough to help a Scorpion? (Based on the Fable, "The Fox and the Scorpion")0_1501248420148_Cat attack WIP FINAL copy SVS version.jpg
