This is a new iteration, the list has been scrapped for the old ‘reblog and’ post.
Reblog this post to your art blog, and I will give you feedback on the content of your blog. I’ll tell you what works, what needs improvement, and how you might go about making those improvements. I will not discriminate based on genre, media, or aesthetic, everyone will be evaluated on their own terms.
Selection will be based on the order that people reblogged the post in, and the post will be tagged with the artist’s url for their convenience. PLEASE make sure you reblog TO YOUR ART BLOG. Reblog the ORIGINAL POST from Starving Artist’s Sage Advice, this makes things less complicated for me! DO NOT LIKE THE POST IN ORDER TO BE CRITIQUED, THIS WILL NOT PUT YOU IN LINE TO BE CRITIQUED. THANK YOU. The critique will cover the body of your work. If you’d rather I critique a specific piece, please submit it to the blog with what you’d like to have feedback on as an image file.
What immediately strikes me when looking at your world is the way it’s so often vivid and lively, both in the way that it’s rendered and in the colours you choose. The subtleties of your tones as you shade between colors make the work beautiful to look at. Line width is varied throughout, making for visual complexity, and you easily move between highly complex and ornate designs and simpler designs, another point of flexibility in your work. Nice texture in both your digital and your traditional work, which leads me to the next point: You seem nearly equally skilled in both types of media, which is rare and will certainly serve you well and make you a more flexible artist.
You have a very approachable style, with fluid poses and well-rendered features. Both humanoids and animalistic characters are rendered with equal care and skill, which is rare considering many artists choose to focus solely on one or the other.
One piece stands out not only because of the high contrast and drama of the lighting/colours, but because there’s an overall tension and energy that’s not much seen in your art. The stance of the character shows a vitality and readiness rather than the restful or leisurely postures you’re prone to. There’s a sense of display in most of your work as opposed to a sense of activity. (This doesn’t hold true for your sketches.Many of your sketches have a far less staid overall feel than your finished work.) This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, or even something that you need to ‘fix’ however if you’re looking for a direction to grow in, you might want to keep this in mind. I also noticed a few attempts to render adult humanoid males that were slightly less than successful…try doing studies from photographs as well as doing work based on your own knowledge of anatomy. This should help you understand how a muscular male body works slightly better than always working from your own imagination.
Incredible, very mature work overall and hopefully we’ll see more of it!
Best of luck in all your endeavours,
