View Full Version : WIP "King of the Hill" : Help needed

12 December 2005, 02:45 PM
Hey there all crazy cg-talkers,

I'm currently working on this painting "King of the Hill", but I think i need a push in the right direction, so that's why i'm posting it here.

I hope you guys can help me out getting this painting much better!
(p.s. this is my second serious painting, so pls be kind :rolleyes::D)
(p.p.s. don't bother the staf, left arm, right side of the painting, last rocks, cause i have to finish them first.)

It look good. I particularly like the face, hair and the beard, If you could make the rest look like that youŽll have something a lot better. A little more work on the beard though. The hair on its head seems more natural. It also needs more depth, the overall look of the painting is a little flat. I love the lighting effect on the staff. Be careful with the anatomy on the torso and arms. I recommend you use a real life reference. I believe one should only stop using references when mastering proportions and anatomy, lightning etc. Also, the reflection from the staff should be stronger than the reflection coming from the sky, remenber the sky is cloudy. IŽm looking forward to see another post of this. :)

Aside, from what arielmedel said, use these rules to your advantage and ask yourself this questions where do u want to the main focus to be, the characters face? the staff? the using what was mentioned b4 use those to solve ur painting here and other paintings later on, u can also you can maybe add some atmospheric perspective to highten up the painting give it a little realism and it seems like ur moving color around so that is good. continue with this painting and update, update, update! holla!:thumbsup:
