RE: Illustration WIP. Critiques welcome.
For the cloud i think the thickness of the line brings it to the foreground with the characters in the boat, if that makes sense??? Try a thinner brush (Sorry i don't work in digital so i may use the wrong terminology) to outline the clouds, and you may find it puts them back into the background???
RE: Girl, your face is driving me crazy
I'm afraid i can't help digitally, but to look at it i feel the Right eye isn't quite right (?)
Also (and you may not want to hear this lol) I think its time you take a day or two away from this piece if it bothers you so much. Look at it again in a few days time with fresh eyes??
Best of luck ^_^
RE: new piece - pls critique
My advice is going to be on the Mental/Emotional Health aspect of what you writen, Why? because i too really suffer from self doubt. It may come from a different location but it is still self doubt. Changing your career is scary as hell, especially when you have children to think of. But let be tell you this, next time you have one of your dark moments, tell yourself not only are you following your dreams (which will make you happier and in the long run your family happier) but you are doing something MORE important..... You are teaching your children to follow their dreams! The hard times, the failures as well as all the good times and wins of striving for your goals will teach your children the valuble leason of not giving up and to just keep striving for more, to be better, to follow your dream!! And that, IS AMAZING! You, are an amazing mama x
Very best of luck to you (i don't work digitally, so i'm not much help to you i'm afraid lol)
RE: Where to get Portfolio reviews?
Thank you everyone for your wonderful reply's i really appreciate it!
@Marsha-Kay-Ottum-Owen I just about to send Lee a msg when i saw Will(Terry) replied to this thread. Theres hoping that they do decide to do reviews as apart of their services :)
@beckporter Many thanks, that's definitely worth a look!
@Kelanhordos Schoolisum is another one of those great art communities, but sadly $1000 is not something i can realistically afford any time soon :/
@Will-Terry , I think you are 100% right, it is important. And for many reasons, but for many of us, we just want to know where we currently are (artistically) and where we need to improve most, especially if (Like me) you have very little money to spend on classes/subscriptions. Also (as a stay at home mum) i have very little time at the moment, so knowing where best to focus my energy is important to me right now.
My current plan of action is to build a portfolio (Since re watching your youtube vid on what to put in one I've culled pretty much everything! not because everything in it was necessarily 'bad' but because next to none of it was useful for a portfolio...if that makes sense?) Get a good review on my current skills and where i can improve. I'm also hoping to have saved up any spare pennies to afford a years subscription to SVS so i can start/continue to better myself as/after i work on my portfolio.
@rcartwright Another great one to check out thank you!
Thanks again everyone i really appreciate it!
