Title: Reality vs Virtual
Name: Yan Nam Ko
This is a school work about people live in two lifes, one is the reality world and the another is the online game world.
I used 3 days to paint it in photoshop CS3 and wacom tablet...
I kinda like this one.
Please leave me a message and give me some advise to improve~

i supose the rainy one is the RL one and the summer part is the online world but i would't mind either of them :D love when it is storming and be outside you feel so alive! but at the look of his face he thinks diffrent. The happy face makes me think of final fantasy :P and is the stuff in the distance buildings or stones?

Wow thats an impressive piece of art! I love the sunny landscape, and you did a great job on relating the two different moods through the colours and expressions on the characters faces.
What bugs me a bit is - the rain splashes on the hair of the sad character are a bit overpowering. hair is soft and rain falling on it wouldn't make splashes like that. I think simple, controlled highlights would look more natural.
What I would also do is, like you curved the landscapes, (which came out awesome) do the same thing for the stormy sky. This I think will blend it better into the picture a. I say this from a compositional point of view as well as - and I dont know if this is intentional but I see a ying and yang pattern to the painting. its as if reality and the imaginary realm of the online game creates a perfect balance! maybe im reading to much into it :) but either way if you curve the blue clouds to create a rounded corner it should be more flowing and relate better to the rest of the environment.
But either than that its really good! thumbs up!
