Here's my first entry!! I'm not currently a member, so I'm not really sure how this will go. I love seeing everyone's entries so far! Great job, everybody!
I agree with what A.j. said about rim lighting. My suggestion for you would be to reposition the sword to be turned slightly upward to point at the tapestry. I think swords can be interesting leading lines, so you can use it to your advantage by having the sword's point leading my eyes to where you want me to look next.
Also I would remove some of the toes, they're giving the feet a sort of duck feet look.
Here's a draw over where I added the rim light, upturned the sword and edited the feet. Hope it helps! Good luck with your contest!
Hey guys! Here's a link to my newest YouTube video. It would be awesome to connect with you guys over there and become mutuals! Also, please let me know of any topics that I should do voice overs about to put alongside my art. Thank you!
Thank you everyone for your feedback! I had so much fun rendering this out in this style that I'm trying out.
I think it's pretty much finished, but I'm about to do some late minute changes, so let me know what looks off to you guys!
Honestly you’re really consistent with your content. Color is a big factor in brand consistency so I think you are right on it. And if you do decide to make a change to a different color, just make sure to keep that color for a few posts.
I would definitely suggest more contrast. If you squint at the image and the whole thing blurs together, it needs more contrast.
Pretty good drawing though!
@NessIllustration these thumbnails look pretty solid! I would suggest integrating your preferred color pallet within the thumbnail. Your brand is so important, it should be stamped on your work as much as you can!
I can’t wait to watch these videos!!
@Евгений-Бондаренко Hi Evgeny! I'm Elisa and I've been wanting to draw comic books for a long time as well. My family moved right before Covid hit the US so it's been tough finding an art community in my area too. That's how I figured the svs forums would be an awesome place to find some artist friends!
I absolutely love your background ink illustrations and I'd love to show you my work-in-progress backgrounds for feedback! Right now I've been doing character commissions for Dungeons and Dragons players, so I haven't put a lot of focus on environments in a while.
Here's my instagram https://www.instagram.com/elimikoart/ I already followed you!
This is a personal piece for my portfolio and I'm not sure what to do with the white space at the bottom.
Also, should I give it some cell shading and highlights to the valued areas? Whenever I start adding highlights to the hair I'm not satisfied with it...maybe I just need to look at reference as I'm doing it.
Let me know! Thanks guys!!
@Griffin I totally understand that. That’s one of the reasons why I had to really lessen my focus on Instagram because I was comparing myself to others way too much. I’m in the mindset now of just working on the skills, share it with other artists for actual feedback and focus on getting jobs through sources other than social media. My time input to benefit ratio wasn’t worth it in my opinion. But you’re doing great! Keep it up!
This is a really great start for an illustration. the textures are very interesting and comforting to look at. I would try adding some more detail to the environment to make it a little more interesting to look at. More greenery/bushes/vines are always really nice to look at.
