Thank you for the kind replies already @zanben, @oshred and @Acolet
(haha I've seen you on the old forums Acolet, didn't you play aswell?)
So here's what I am working on currently, do mind that it has a little bit of nudity (I am not sure if this is within guidelines, if not please contact me and I'll take it down)
I've had some trouble with it already because I didn't plan anything (light source, mood etc) at all before starting the painting and it's starting to show. It's like I completely skipped the most important step. So I asked my friend for some feedback on it and these are two of the things she mentioned:
- There's a lack of shadows which doesn't make it clear where the light source is.
- The head doesn't tilt with the eyes.
And then I noticed myself that her arm in the front isn't correct and the fins on her arms need work.
I am wondering if you see more things that aren't correct?
So self evaluation here, the more I blend the more I get rid of shadows... facepalm.
Anyway, I am thinking of redoing this whole painting with a different pose aswell. It currently doesn't satisfy me at all, I know I can do better. Had fun though so far.
