RE: Our SVS virtual studio
Ive been working on an illustration which will be given to a writer to come up with a story for it. I can't wait to read it. Illustration and accompanying story will then hang in the library in Albuquerque along with several others for the month of September. The theme is 'Lost and Found' ..I entitled this 'Isla's Pearls'
Dragons are everywhere, I suppose I was influenced.
RE: Please critique
@TessaW These are some valuable thoughts... [I had to laugh at the great tact taken with your, 'it would have so much more impact if the creature was looking at the woman' Yes, indeed. lol Thank you]
I love the addition of the tail and definitely see the improvement with a hint of a forest added. It adds some story and depth..wonderful..thank you so much for taking the time.
I posted in gd about submitting an illustration that will be part of a month long exhibition. This is the first time I've participated in anything like this and need some honest, skilled peepers looking at this for me! 😬
I will go in and detail her feet and hands and his talons. I'm undecided regarding the background. Would you recommend detail, blurred detail, or leaving white. What about the beast..will I knock back the detail a bit? I will be more careful with the scales in the final rendering I think..maybe less so on the body with greater care on the head. I'm debating turning the girls head somewhat toward the viewer so as to capture more feeling..
Just looking for some feedback at this point! Much appreciated.
wall mounting prints
I'm submitting an illustration that will be part of a month long exhibition and digital prints are accepted. I will have a large print [25"x25"] that I want to hang unframed but mounted on either gator board or something equally sturdy but inexpensive. I did find this place but would prefer to spend as little as I can and still have a professional lovely looking piece. I know it can be difficult to get a really smooth adhesion, so in this case, I'm not sure I want to DIY.
Does anyone have any recommendations or knowledge of this?
RE: Goat illustration critique / advice needed
Its going to be adorable. You might try different viewpoints.. rather than these straight on sort of staged images you might add some interest just by jutting a wall in there and adding some side views of things. I don't know if I'm being clear really, but I think its Will Terry who talks about this more in depth in one of his classes..I think it could have been the 100 things class. I love your character!
RE: I started painting today....still will do some touch ups, etc.
These are so sweet and fun Marsha..great character continuity throughout. Good luck on your move!
RE: What’s your favourite ever artwork?
I remember seeing the well known sepia drawing of a child's face in art class in high school by Peter Paul Rubens. I studied every line and curve..just loved the roundness and muted color done in simple pencil. I just found it again the other day on pinterest and don't think I'd ever realized that it was a rendering of his son, Nicolaas Rubens. No wonder its full of magic and soul.
RE: Introducing myself :)
I admire anyone in the field of fitness ..it requires so much dedication and discipline! With that as your background I think you've been well prepped for the work ethic needed for just about anything you decide you want to do. Welcome to svs Murielle..you're going to find lots to learn here.
