Witchshop Final Feedback very welcome

  • Hi so, I posted a WIP of this a few month ago, and forgot to update my process. This was original my slowvember piece and draw50things-challange in one thing. turns out.... I needed way more time for this than I expected and I am working at this for the last four month now.

    I would like to finish it know and am looking for objects that could do more rendering oder look odd to you or maybe you think could have a different color. So I would be super glad if you could give me some feedback if you spot something!

  • This is SO COOL! Definitly a worthy 50-piece challenge. I appreciate that at this stage much change wouldn't be possible anyway, and really, I couldn't think of much feedback looking at this.

    The only thing I'd consider is perhaps pushing the values a bit moe to create some depth. It looks like the table with the cauldron is in front of the book case, but the values blend right in with the rest. Maybe these can be darkened with a multiply layer to give a sense of "foreground". I'd wonder the same about the character and the ladder. Perhaps some darkening or lightening there could make them stand out a bit more. You might be able to push the light thrown by the lamp right beside them and create a deeper shadow.

  • Awesome illustration... I love it! As per @Nathalie-Kranich's suggestion, it might be a good idea to use selective lighting to direct the viewers attention; push and pull some values and add depth to the composition. You could choose a few particularly interesting spots, and focus the lighting on those. I would assume the character would/should get the lion share of that attention. At the moment the whole scene is pretty evenly lit. The problem is that if everything is of interest, nothing is of interest.

    Nonetheless, and at the risk of repeating myself... This is a really good illustration. The details are just wonderful. Must have been a LOT of work.


  • That’s really incredible!

  • Wow! This is so nice! Good job with drawing 50 things and making it look so nice. I agree with others about pushing the values. Right now it feels like there is no focus point. Do you want the girl to be the focus? Then make the brightest light on her and darken other areas. Other than that, it is beautiful!

  • @Freya-Chakour This is so cool! I love all the lights tucked throughout! Great job!

  • You could make this into a great puzzle. 🙂

  • @Nathalie-Kranich @Casual-T @Kim-Rosenlof thank you so much for your feedback! its really good to get some fresh eyes on this, and i will try to work with these values and and get it a bit less even.

  • @KathrynAdebayo Haha! Thank you so much! I think you are the third person pointing this out. maybe I should really check out some puzzlemakers and see if they would be interested in licensing the picture! that would be so cool

  • @Alicia thank you very much! I really had so much fun adding all the lights and magical glows!

  • This turned out gorgeous! Very nice piece!

  • @Freya-Chakour wow this is amazing! Great work!

  • this is amazing!! If you ever offer this as a puzzle especially, omg I want it. So much atmosphere.

  • @HeatherBouteneff @Richard-Matthews @K-Flagg thank you all so much for your kind words! I appreciate them very much! this piece really was a test to my commitment and every step was a new challenge for me. im super happy it turned out this way and I finished it.

    @HeatherBouteneff ❤ if I can make that happen I will post it for sure! that would be awesome! Lets see, maybe I will make it available as a puzzle on Redbubble, if I can't find a real puzzle maker to license it. : )
