hey guys. Hope this site is still active, cus I just joined. Lol. Anyway I'd like some crits on my first piece here: https://cgcookie.com/u/bluepangolin/projects/surly-turtleI'm mostly concerned with figuring out how the shadows should fall.
Hi Brett. Good concept! If light comes from left, shadows shoud fall right.
I trully recomend you to go to this course https://cgcookie.com/course/lighting-and-values-2
Sometimes its tedious to attend tecnical stuff but its essential to understand it for getting good stuff.
Keep going. Waiting to see your final work!
Cool character, it's got a very interesting vibe with the pipe. I love the concept. The main thing that stuck out to me is the lighting on the piece - it's inconsistent with the shading on the character. The similar use of color throughout the entire character makes it a little difficult for me to read the character's form. It might be interesting to play around with warm/cool color contrast to create more depth.
First I have to make you compliments for your work and your attempt to get feedback for it. Not everybody does that. So here comes my feedback.
I really do like your character. You managed to transport a certain mood to your figure. So this is pretty believable.
I would like to see more detailed parts. Some aspects of your character are completely undefined and I can´t figure out, what they are supposed to be. Take his weapon (or stick) for example or his red beard. Even if you just indicate form or texture it would benefit your character concept a lot. Since it is a character concept peace every aspect of your turtle needs to be clear to the viewer.
And as the others mentioned before you should learn more about values and light. I would recommend you to take your painting and redo it just with gray values. After that you can apply color to it.
Hello, and welcome to the community!
There's going to be a fair amount of critiquing up ahead, but don't worry, I'll try to be as helpful as I can.
sorry to bump, but how do I change my name?
